True health is not about how fit you are, or how much you weigh. True health is all about balance. In order for you to be truly healthy, you need a balance between mind, body and spirit. You will achieve true health when all three are working together in harmony.
Everyday you need to take a little time for meditation. You need to take the time to relax and let go of the chatter in your head. The food you eat is important as well as the amount you eat. There is a spiritual side to food and if you eat food spiritually, you will never become overweight. All processed food loses value as it is processed. The more processes it goes through, the less valuable as a source of nourishment, it becomes. Eat natural food, raw if possible, and you will find it more nourishing, spiritually as well as physically.
Your body needs exercise. It was designed for regular physical activity and if you go against the design, your body will not work efficiently. It’s surprising how much abuse the human body can take, before it breaks down, but without regular exercise, it will break down.
Yoga and Tai Chi are excellent forms of exercise. They exercise the mind and the spirit. Exercise doesn’t have to be rough and sweaty. You will get a lot of benefit from the stretching and strength building exercises of Yoga and Tai Chi, and they are great for relaxing, too.
Your mind needs work too. You need to exercise your brain as much as you need to exercise your body. Brain games, crosswords, Sudoku, or even just reading a book, are all good ways to exercise your mind. Health and harmony are not hard to achieve. Take a little time each day and before you know it, you will have true health.
