Life, Health and Fitness

Health can be defined as the ultimate bliss that can be bestowed upon a person. It is the greatest asset one can possess and it’s of course the most-sought after in today’s break-neck paced world. People sort to so many ways in achieving the coveted perfect health condition. And fortunately there are so many distinct ways of doing that.

Fitness is a word frequently thrown around whenever the topic health pops up, and it means nothing being efficient to do what an individual wants to without any difficulty. In simple terms it’s all about being fit. It doesn’t mean to look good or have an awe-inspiring figure but to be healthy and be able to do the day-to-day chores without fretting much effort. Fitness is, not pulling a muscle or a having sprain just when you bend that extra degree for some work, being fit means running that occasional for catching that running bus without panting like a whale.

Eating all the junk you want and hitting the gym when you find that flab hanging around your waist doesn’t mean you are healthy or fit. Nor does it imply consciousness about proper health. Considering the kind of lifestyles prevalent maintaining proper health becomes one of the main objectives of people.

Now the big question how can we allocate some time daily for activities which help us to be fit and healthy when we got no time for having a hearty meal? Enthusiasm for being healthy and fear of contracting long-term health problems may act as the much-needed impetus for doing so. Moreover there are a lot of side-effects of these, though it’s not proper to call them so, which provide added advantages. Workouts for example prove to be boon for both men and women alike as they help in building a stronger body at the same time provide vanity-related goodies like glowing skin! Apart from workouts activities which promote the decrement of stress-levels like meditating and yoga prove to be the perfect tools for improving one’s health condition and maintaining it.

It’s a known fact, healthy mind in a healthy body. So being fit is not the prerequisite for only those who have physical work involved in their daily routine but even those who fret over their computer monitors need it to cut down those extra stress levels and stop those receding hairlines. Yes there are more advantages when compared to drawbacks (which can be counted as none) of leading healthy necessarily through being fit and by performing activities to uphold it. So it’s never too late to hit the nearest fitness centre or start the process at your own home which may be the triggering point for a much better life and importantly healthy life.… Read More

Four Essentials For Maintaining a Healthy Mind

Our Mind is one of our most precious possessions; it’s also a possession that is easy to take for granted. Rarely as human beings do we take stock and hold inventory of our thoughts and perpetual mediations.

But this simple habit can mean the difference between a healthy productive mind, operating at optimum, a servant able to enable the manifestation of our destiny. Or a troubled storm torn vessel, unable to assist us is in the vicissitudes of life. In this article I want to highlight four main elements I feel will be deeply useful to consider when we are endeavouring to corral our minds in the direction that will produce the most desired results.

To further lay emphasis on the opportunity we have before us, I would have you consider the fact that a healthy mind more often than not is fundamental to a healthy body. A healthy mind enables us to think creatively and circumstances will invariably bend to the upbeat attitude of a healthy mind.  A healthy mind will attract to it not only healthy circumstances, but also healthy company. It’s been said bad company corrupts good habits. I charge we should choose our thoughts as carefully as we choose our friends and vice versa.

Our thoughts will either take us to our desired destination, or plunge us to our dreaded fates. Our thoughts will ennoble us to feats of courage and determination or rob us of vital energy when life requires an extra push.

Lets look together at the four things that can greatly improve our thought life and enable our minds to maintain a healthy virile tone that will infuse all of life with purpose, meaning, worth and peace.

Attitude:

Let’s begin with attitude; it’s been said that in all of life’s happenings, the one thing we can choose is our attitude. A negative attitude is one of the surest ways to eschew destruction through our whole system, and destroy productive relations with our fellows. Even if we attract many other negative people to our pity party, the ensuing conversations will be so detrimental, we can be sure no positive thing can result. Likewise when we choose in the face of a negative appearing circumstance a positive response, the lessons in the circumstance are learnt, the pain quickly passes and we are ennobled, energised, invigorated. And by default those we come in contact with will reap the benefits.

Self Esteem:

A positive attitude is hard to maintain without a healthy self esteem. Self esteem is something so deep it affects our thoughts immensely. First please realise that who you are has tremendous value and worth. You may have been told otherwise all your life, and circumstances may have conspired together to compound this notion. But please stop and look into the mirror, tell yourself you love yourself, tell yourself you forgive yourself, tell yourself that you are the most valuable possession you have at your disposal, and invest in yourself. Allow you’re self … Read More
