Happy day to all my loving readers and visitors
Much has already been said about the state of the physical health and its impact on our life style and I cannot deny the fact that the physically affair of health will also affect a person in many ways. However, the mental and spirit health, which has a greater impacts on one’s lifestyle and you cannot afford to undermine as they may overcome the greatest physical disability so as to shape that person’s life..
In this article I shall continue to pay more focus on both the mental and spiritual aspects of health. I would like to reiterate the fact that they can even compensate for whatever physical defect one may have. Therefore they should receive MUCH of your attention and PRIORITY.
Maintaining a positive inner health while living a healthy life is a like running a race that includes hurdles. So never expect life to be easy and smooth. Otherwise when you encounter any hurdles, you may become angry or fearful or doubtful. This is because you do not have the experience or expertise to handle these hurdles. Therefore you will either wait for someone to remove the obstacle, or take a shortcut solution or you just simply give up in desperation. At times, short cut solutions such as taking a much higher, than permitted, doses of medicine may seem to be a feasible solution.
To stay healthy, you ought to expect that you have to face hurdles. You must be aware that it is a continuing act/process per se and overcoming hurdles is part and parcel of life. As a result, you need to respond to it appropriately. By having the right perspective, you will be able to tackle these challenges positively instead of running away from them.
Therefore, it is very much easier to stay healthy when everything is going your way smoothly. However, the trouble is that things cannot always be at status quo; your age is catching up ; more and more deadly and life threatening diseases are emerging. Whether you like it or not, you need a much stronger determination to deal with these challenges as and when it arises.
However, it is sad that most people have either overlooked or neglected this point.
Moving forward I shall discuss some of the major obstacles that may prevent you from staying healthy. Questions such as the types of obstacles; the extent and how they can affect your lifestyle would be uppermost in your mind. Here, I shall give you some insight as to how to overcome these obstacles effectively.
Anxiety is an emotion that burns out lots of your energy and stress you out unnecessary. If you are not careful you will be drown with more and more worry; far more than necessary; in any of your situation. It will not only over load you with problems, real and perceived, but will also shake your confidence ultimately.
Here, we must also be very clear of the difference between worry and concern. A worried person sees a problem, and whereas a concerned person solve a problem. To become an effective problem solver, you need to focus on things that you can control. So, give Today your attention and not Yesterday or Tomorrow. If you have done it to the best of your ability, then you should not worry about it anymore, as nothing can change it further.
On the other hand, if you allow anxiety to take control of you, then it will make the distinction between problem and predicament blur. I shall deal these two terms shortly. Here, you must know precisely where to draw the boundary and what you really need to rectify your situation, not anything more than that.. If not, you will be taxed with all the unnecessary worries that will slow down your action and you will be tormented thinking of all the negative consequences. If not careful, it will eventually cause you to break down or go into depression.
Therefore, it is crucial for you to have the right and appropriate perspective to solve any hurdles that may crop up. Otherwise, you will end up with sleepless night as your mind will be actively thinking of its adverse implications, thus creating more harm to you.
As such, we must be aware that our anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empty today of its strengths. As a result, you cannot stay healthy if you have lots of anxieties. That is why it is important to be in control of yourself at ALL TIMES.
People have fear because of uncertainty, sudden attack, panic or that can make them captive. Fear can be real or perceived through the individual personal deception.. Both are equally harmful to the individual if left unchecked. Therefore, a person cannot allow fear to control him if he wants to stay healthy.
You may have heard of the saying that fear breeds fear. Once you allow fear to creep into your mind, you will think of all the negative consequences until your mind is saturated with all the negative impacts and eventually it will take complete control of your mind and cause you to black out. As a result, you are not only inactive, but your health will be deteriorating.
Hence it will make you fearful of doing something that may actually be beneficial to you. Let us be very clear that taking action will require you to move into the unknown which can be scary at times. But if you give in to your fear, you cannot move forward. You cannot neither benefit from what you avoid, nor be able to gather any valuable experience that would make you better informed.
So, stay tuned for the part 2.
