This happened to me and maybe to every one of you at some time or the other in life: We are sitting in a group, maybe in school or in college, in office or at the gym – we can’t understand the theory of modernism, we can’t achieve new heights in office, or you just can’t lift those heavy weights.
What do we do in such a situation? Instead of giving ourselves a small break and the time to focus to reason out things, we get annoyed and upset and want to quit everything. Is that the solution to the problem? Absolutely not! The solution is to have a positive outlook and stop thinking negative. It is not very difficult, you just need to:
Change your point of view: For instance, keep telling yourself that you are healthy to exercise!! This confidence will make you passionate for working out. With this passion in yourself, just a few hours of hard work will drastically bring a positive change in your life!
Clear your mind: Talk to your friend or your family member. A vent to your pent-up thoughts will clear your mind and take you in the positive direction.
Don’t sweat the small stuff: Stop worrying about those small and meager things in life. Enjoy, keep a positive attitude and stay happy. This will keep all your loved ones also happy!
Now the question that pops up is that will a positive and fit mind lead to a fit body. Yes it will! You just need to manage a proper mind-body balance.
To shift from the state of imbalance to the state of balance, you need to have a healthy dialogue between thoughts and body. To achieve this balance what you need to do is:
1. Every day take out some time to meditate and relax your mind
During meditation you will be in a state where your body is at rest but your mind is awake. Meditation will give you supreme relaxation and dissolve all your stresses. Stress-free body is no doubt a healthy body!
2.Eating healthy is very important
A healthy diet will give you a healthy body and a healthy mind. A balanced diet is the one which includes all tastes from sweet to bitter, and from salty to sour.
3.Regular exercise will give unbelievable benefits to both mind and body
Exercise will not only keep the body young but also develop emotional happiness. If you have a positive mind, the chances of going to a gym increase. When you feel low, you no doubt don’t want to go for a work out but just want to lie down in your couch. It is a kind of vicious cycle. Exercise boosts endorphins which make our mood better. So whenever you are low, just go and hit the gym. It will bring a smile on your face. As a result, going to the gym will be regular and you will achieve your goal. And now that your goal is achieved you feel more happy and positive! The cycle is complete.
4.Restful sleep is vital for your health
I come across so many people who boast about how with little sleep also they can go on. In fact, both little sleep and over sleep disturb the natural body balance. It reduces the immune system and thus leads to weight gain.
5.Create affectionate relationships
Do you know that a good social network can give you both physical and intellectual health benefits? If you are not lonely and feel positive about yourself, you are in a better condition to deal with problems and stress. There are people around who can suggest you ways to deal with your problems.
6.A good laugh atleast once a day will give you a proper mind-body balance
It reduces the stress hormones and also improves the immunity system.
In short, a firm and strong mind promotes healthy body. It is the mind which gives up before the body does. So if your mind is strong, your body too will be.
