Have you heard the phrase too much of anything is bad for you? If you have, it’s completely true, so take it seriously. Even that which is good for you can be bad for you if you have too much of it; for example, too much of any one vitamin can be hazardous to your health. Also, taking more than the recommended dosage of medicines like Tylenol or cold remedies can be a detriment to your health.
The point I’m making is that you have to strive for balance every day in your life. Don’t let too much of a good thing or bad thing wreak havoc in your life. Create those endorphins through activity and then if you are not already doing so, pamper yourself at least on a monthly basis. Do whatever it is that floats your boat. I mean do that thing that gives you relief and balance from the regular humdrum of life.
One of the things that take me there is massage therapy. That is my relief, pamper and therapy all rolled into one that keeps me straight and balanced after my amazing workouts. I like to get in touch with nature as well. Whether it is sitting on the beach and staring into the water and sunset or being in the mountains and taking in the fresh air with the sounds and movements of four-legged creatures running about; it is what grounds me and makes me not only appreciate, but also be grateful for the gifts I have.
It’s a fact that the body by nature always strives for a state of homeostasis, which is inner balance and how we were created. It is totally up to us, however, to be resourceful and mindful in assisting the body with what it needs to keep that peaceful balance internally and externally.
When you find your balance life will become more interesting and exciting and you will be surprised at how much more you’ll get done in a day or even an hour. Also, whether it be with your job, your workout or your love life, you will not only feel more complete, satisfied and confident with yourself, but you’ll find that you are more creative, energetic and motivated to reach your desired goals.
I don’t know if any one person can ever totally be in balance at any one time, because life is what it is and always has surprises for us from time to time, and let’s face it nobody is perfect. The important thing is to strive for it anyway, be forward thinking about it, and understand that balancing your health is your most important jewel – Mind, body and spirit!
Wendy’s Fabulous Fit Fax Tips!
Let me be very clear. An active body is a healthy body and a healthy mind can feed the soul. Try some of these strategies to help put your life in balance, but start one thing at a time so you can achieve a more solid and permanent life adjustment.
- First on my list, of course is to MAKE YOUR HEALTH A PRIORITY! GET ACTIVE and ENROLL IN A HEALTHY EATING PROGRAM! No way around it. Just take a walk to get yourself started if you haven’t already. This will help to clear your mind to make some good eating choices!
- Take time to be still with yourself everyday and listen to your soul. That means shutting out the noise like TV, radio, cell phones, people talking and all the other bells and whistles in your life. This will help you find answers!
- Pamper yourself. Give yourself the rewards and tender care it wants and needs. Make sure it is not edible though. Understand that it doesn’t have to be expensive either. Massage, an outfit, or tea with the girls and some good conversation are some choices. This will help you to recover!
- Expand your horizons by learning something new like a foreign language. It will stimulate your mind! Or find a hobby you are passionate about. It will help you find your purpose!
