The mind, body and soul are all interconnected. When you’re out of sorts, with your mind facing stresses, it taxes your soul and can often make your body ill. If you’re ill, it’s adds stress to the soul and mind. When you live a full life, the connection of all three makes you unstoppable, but when one is vulnerable or not fit, the whole system is vulnerable. You are as strong as your weakest link. In some cases, that link is physical, which lowers the energy level and can make things look hopeless.
Working out builds all three.
When you workout, you know you’re building your body, but did you also know you’re helping your mind and soul at the same time? It’s true. As you workout, the hormones from stress that can cause anxiety and depression burn off. In their place, ones that leave you feeling content are created. That builds the soul and makes it healthier. You’re also helping to build new neural paths in the brain. Scientific studies show that exercise helps improve cognitive thinking, which is why they are using it for dementia and Alzheimer’s patients.
You have to believe to achieve.
If you believe you’ll succeed at losing weight, it makes the task easier. When you take the factor of belief away from the equation, it removes more than the incentive, it removes all hope. People who believe they’ll fail at any task will fail. It’s called a self-fulfilling prophecy. You probably experience it every day. If you’re confident the day will go well, it often does. However, if the day starts with a disaster, it tends to go downhill. That’s one reason we focus so much on motivating you.
Your achievement in fitness transfers to other areas of your life.
When you believe you’re capable of accomplishing anything you put your mind to doing, you can, if you’re willing to put in all the work it takes to accomplish the task. That’s one reason success at a fitness plan can be so important. It helps you to see just how strong and powerful you can be when you stay focused on a goal. It lets you know that anything is possible.
You’ll build strength when you workout. That feeling of strength is a real confidence booster. Many people age faster because they feel weak and old. A program of regular exercise can change that and give them a new lease on life.
You’ll look years younger and feel great. Not only is exercise good for your body and health, it also helps your skin and body look younger, sending oxygen and nutrient rich blood to all cells in the body.
You’ll have more energy than you ever thought possible. The body is amazing. The harder you work it, the more energy it has.
You’ll feel different about yourself. Not only does exercise give you confidence, the changes in your body will make you feel proud to be the person you are.
