HOW TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY BODY AND MIND
It is a natural human phenomenon that all individuals in this world like gifts. Knowingly or unknowingly the best gift we have in our life and that we love the most is our own body. Gifts are always free and our body is a free gift from God. But the responsibility to safeguard the gifts does not lie with the giver, but with the receiver. Hence, it is the responsibility of each person to safeguard his body and to maintain a healthy condition during his lifetime.
To build a body means to maintain a normal healthy body or being fit always. Because of various phenomena of human life cycle, the body’s nature will change in due time. The weight may increase than the normal condition or even decrease. The shape may not be as attractive as each individual expects it to be. The colour may fade or may not be attractive. The society will judge us and talk about us on how we look. Our body shape will change the view of others about us. So, it should be you and me who should control our own destiny by taking right decisions in our life. It should be each individual’s goal to be fit and stay healthy always.
Staying healthy is not only about being physically fit, but also about being mentally fit. Both are interrelated and complement each other. Without maintaining both the conditions, one cannot stay fit. The primary requirement to stay fit and healthy is to have goals in our life. It can be short
term goals and also long-term goals. Secondly, with the defined goals, a definite plan should be formulated and one should be dedicated enough to achieve the goals through the defined plans. Thirdly, a proper and frequent evaluation and corrective procedures should be followed to have a successful process.
Goals should be set such that it should give directions to reach the final point. Anything and everything that helps to give directions has to be pointed out. To be fit both physically and mentally, goals must be defined for both. Goals should not be changed frequently, unless and until it is that critical. Hence, setting goals should be done with much thought process and dedication.
Plans should be structured enough so that each one should be able to follow it. Plans may vary for one person to another. Also, our own previous experiences and experiences shared by others should be considered while
setting up the plan. Plans should be set for a short period, as they are subject to a change. Experiences and failures should change the plans, to achieve effective results. Distractions, unavoidable obstacles, existing habits etc. must be well considered, and should be catered while defining the plans. Plans should define procedures for physical work out, food diet, mental exercise, maintaining habits etc., that directly or indirectly contribute to stay fit and healthy.
Frequent evaluation should be done to verify that the defined plans are
contributing to achieve the defined short term and long-term goals. Self-evaluation and external evaluation are must to achieve a successful result. The defined plans, along with the evaluation of the dedication and self-motivation is must and has to be documented properly on a continuous basis. This will help to make corrective steps, unlearn and relearn things to achieve best results in life.
In short, having a dedicated physical and mental exercise will always keep a person fit and healthy. Body building is about being fit and healthy in all situations of life.
