WHAT DOES MIND, BODY, SPIRIT MEAN IN RELATION TO FITNESS? We hear that phrase so often; do we really understand what it means? The physical body has its own intelligence. It will bypass a muscle that has atrophied or degenerated to recruit the strongest muscle to do the job. However, the strongest muscle in your body cannot do everything! Leaving one part of our body destabilized (atrophying) can bring our house down. Understanding the connection and value of every bone, muscle and organ working as a team, assisted by an active mind, strong body, and an emotionally balanced spirit will enable us to achieve our goals and arrive at balance. For example; our body may be strong and yet our mind may not be emotionally grounded; or in the alternative, if we’re emotionally sound and our body is not strong, it results in imbalance! I used to think that the MIND, BODY, SPIRIT CONNECTION was baloney, how can we juggle our jobs, raise kids, carpool, shop, make dinner, keep our bodies strong.... etc. and achieve harmony at the same time? Impossible! Ultimately, it was my thinking and how I perceived things that had to change… Fitness is all about commitment, the five senses and how you percieve what you want to achieve. Working out purposefully should include the intention of integrating a healthy mind, strong body, spirit and powerful will! With the understanding that the body, mind, spirit, is like a microcosm of the world….we are all connected! “Commitment to your health and fitness earns a powerful return.”
