Process in Attaining a Healthy Mind and Body
Diet exercise and meditation – The key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. When thinking of health, we concentrate mainly on diet and weight. We need to look at the complete concept. It includes a combination of both mind and body. One without the other is incomplete. A healthy body without peace of mind can give a lost feeling. Or scattered, or disoriented. I think it could also be difficult to have peace of mind with an unhealthy body.
This discussion is not only about how to have a healthy mind and body also how to keep and maintain it.
Steps Taken to get there
Most of us are enthusiastic at the initial stage of this process. A few weeks in, approximately 90% lose interest…Why? Not necessarily due to laziness or lack of commitment, but due to lack of organization. Not well-thought-out or planned. To be successful the change needs to be taken seriously.
Look at the big picture:
It cannot be seen as a pastime but a Life-Changing Event. Draft an itinerary to include diet exercise and meditation.
- Discuss your health with your doctor before making any changes.
- Write your goals. What you’d like to accomplish. When you’d like to accomplish them (realistically).
- The weight you’d like to attain and maintain.
- Research and choose meditation
- Choice of exercise: Yoga, walking, etc.
This group should be seen as a well-balanced diet mentally, physically, and spiritually.
An excellent form of exercise is walking twenty to thirty minutes daily. Meditation is also a great way of maintaining health and happiness. Make a schedule for your daily routine. Wake up time; Exercise time; Meditation time; Breakfast time. Not necessarily in that order. Meditation at least ten to fifteen minutes. A healthy mind and body make a Happy and Fruitful life.
This is a life-changing event. A state of mind should be taken seriously. Don’t be discouraged if you slip up at times. Engaging the whole family could be a great help. Young children especially are eager, and they make it a lot of fun. Starting them out gives them discipline and organization early in life. However, if they’re definitely not interested, they should not be forced.
