Fitness means building muscles and having an awesome physique?
So is that what we think about fitness? What actually is it? Let’s not wonder much and dive into the world of Fitness.
What I believe is that to be fit is the condition of being healthy. By healthy I mean being in a good condition physically, mentally and spiritually.
Different people have different preferences. Not everybody will like working out, not everyone will like to learn or not everyone will also like yoga and meditation. Oh! so I revealed all the forms of fitness right there? Yes, but this is my thought about fitness forms:
- Physical Fitness (Gym, Aerobics, Flexibility)
- Mental Fitness (Learning, Brainstorming, Researches)
- Spiritual Fitness (Meditation, Yoga)
The above points are just my perception on being fit and may not be what specialists have to say about. However, some points also may overlap such as meditation also benefiting mental health, I’ve still generalized it into some simpler form.
We all are very familiar with physical fitness. Maybe once in a lifetime we’ve all tried some measures for it too. Some of us were consistent and most probably many of us were not.
One of the biggest obstacle is that most of us lack the proper motivation for it or let’s say to get fit. Most of our motivation comes with a family function coming by or when summer approaches.
Well that’s where we are lacking if we intend to be physically fit which we all should. If you really intend to develop physically, mentally or spiritually then the first thing we need is that determination regardless of any situation.
