Health And Fitness Is More Than Just Physical

health and fitness

Health and Fitness has become more important to people over the last 30 years than ever before. Although, there have been fitness programs around long before television. The first low calorie soft drink, was introduced in 1934. Health and fitness awareness, have been around for a long time. But there is more to it than just the physical.

When our bodies are feeling strong and healthy, our mental and emotional states are stronger as well. It’s true, you can be fit as a fiddle and still be depressed, fitness isn’t the total cure. However, health and fitness are key ingredients to a healthy spirit and positive thinking.

Working out takes discipline, it also is a great distraction from life. What better way to distract yourself and workout your frustrations than exercising? When your body feels good, that tends to put you in a better mood. Better mood allows you to think clearer and certainly helps your ambitions.  

Keeping Healthy And Fit For The Right Reasons

You would think that the phrase “health and fitness” should stand for what it means. But many go to gyms for more than just a work out. Many go to mingle and try to pick up some romantic fun. More people than should be, exercise solely to look good. Then there are those that want to see how big they can get their muscles or their butts. Granted all of these other reasons can have a significance in your life, but is that the best reason?

Interjecting vanity and romance into a health and fitness regimen can have a disastrous outcome. Using health and fitness to look good thinking that is going to get you a date or noticed can backfire. It is like putting the cart before the horse. In other words, you are getting fit for all the wrong reasons. The only person you should be getting in better health for, is yourself.

If you are going to a gym to hookup, or trying to look good for others, it will ruin you. If the hookups fail or all your work to look good, still doesn’t accomplish getting a date. You are going to give up on being fit. In your mind It will have been a waste of time.

Work out and eat healthy for you. Do worry about dates, romance or trying to impress others. Take care of yourself physically and the mental and emotional strengths will fall into place. Once that happens, dates, romance and impressing people will happen naturally. And if it doesn’t, you can still feel good about yourself, your health and longer life.

Health, And Fitness Should Be Hand In Hand

Exercising is something we should all do regularly, no matter what age you are. Cardiovascular is very important to keep the blood flowing and healthy. There is nothing wrong with a good workout to exert your lungs, muscle and make that body sweat. We are all kind of like a car engine. You run the engine at idle speeds all the time, things will start to gum up with carbon. The body is the same way, you have to put it to work and rev it up from time to time.


But even though you work out, you also need to keep your body healthy by treating it right. Ever hear the saying, “what you put in, is what you get out?” If you eat a lot of fats, sugars, or foods that are bad for you, working out won’t save you. Things like alcohol and drugs are the worst, and combined with working out can kill you.

You should eat and drink healthy, doesn’t mean you need to be a health freak. Most people that keep active and exercise regularly can have a loose diet. Only eating salads can deplete your protein. Too much red meat can clog your arteries. If balanced out in the right proportions, you can still eat the things you like.
