I’ve been contemplating the importance of balance a lot lately. Life is BUSY and important things get put on the back burner. I’ve been hearing and reading about balance in life. Of course there are three areas that make up balance. Physical, emotional and spiritual health all depend on one another in order for us to be healthy.
If we focus mainly on physical health, the other two areas will likely suffer and our bodies will not perform as well as they should. Does physical activity help the other areas? Yes, it does. It awakens the senses and opens up channels for us to feel and experience things in life. What happens though when a person becomes too focused on physical fitness alone? We suffer. We look only for good or bad physical attributes, not only in ourselves, but in others as well. We judge ourselves not by the kind of person we are, but by the amount of fat we have or by the presence of perfect musculature. That, to me, is not healthy.
We have a body that we need to care for in many ways. Sleep, healthy foods, uplifting messages and physical activity are all important. I hope that on your journey to good health, you don’t focus solely on the physical aspect of your transformation. What you look like on the outside, does not make up the person you are on the inside. A good balance is what makes you attractive!
