Healthy Mind, Healthy Body – Spiritual Motivation – For every action, there is an equal and entirely opposite reaction. The difficulty lies not in what we wish the action to be, but the reaction itself. By trying to improve ourselves in any way without proper motivation or reason, we miss the point of action and reaction.
Would you try and drop an apple from atop an apple tree, if you couldn’t find a tree? Why then do we try and lose weight, without first finding a more substantial motivator than the generic “I want to look more attractive”?
If we want an incredible and outstanding reaction (ie: a great physique, or lower cholesterol for example), we first need an equally incredible action: a great motivator. This can come from any number of sources, as long as it stems from yourself. No external factor will be as great a motivator than you can be.
Just like money is the greatest motivating factor for working, quality of life is a most influential factor in making healthy choices. When we are more aware of what we put into our bodies (and how active we are) determines not only your quality of life, but those around you as well.
To be truly motivated to change not just your outward appearance, quality of life is a great catalyst for determining the need for a healthy change. Throughout your day to day experiences do you find yourself wondering any of the following:
- Have I settled?
- Am I wasting my time?
- What’s missing?
If you have ever asked yourself any of these questions (I know I have), then it’s time for a change.
There are countless medical cases, that are manifested through mental duress. Here is a short list to name a few:
- Chronic migraines
- Nervous tension
- Heart & digestive complications
Scary list isn’t it? All of these are medically acknowledged, possibly lethal ailments. And guess what? You can not only reduce your chances of suffering from these diseases, but can completely avoid them.
This article wasn’t created to show you how to directly avoid these illnesses, but is here to give you the proper reasoning, the direct motivation for improving your quality of life to the point where you will be able to enjoy the finer things in life, rather than live in fear of disease.
Remember the opening phrase for this paper? “For every action, there is an equal and entirely opposite reaction”? This is healthy living’s golden rule. If you do nothing active for your body throughout your day, you risk clogging arteries, higher blood pressure and ultimately putting you in the high risk category for heart disease, and a much shorter life expectancy. On the other hand, if you have an active more physical profession and/or lifestyle, you are physical active thereby encouraging new cell growth and healthier overall living.
This is the rule of healthy living: For every action or inaction, there is an equal reaction. Your health doesn’t just affect you, but also those that depend on and love you.
