Positive Fitspiration: keeping the mind, body & soul in good health

I am very excited to bring to this guest post by Claudine. Claudine is a great writer and is passionate about overall health like myself. If you would like to see more information like that which is presented below, please let Claudine know in the comment section below.

Eating well and exercising are very beneficial for being healthy and staying fit, however if the internal being within us is not well we are robbing our selves of true health. In today's world many things can dampen our minds, our bodies and our spirits. We all fall in one or more categories of having stressors which can disturb the mind.

 Some common stressors being lack of jobs, debt, relationship or marital problems (just to name a few common areas) can cause major mental and emotional problems in our lives. This is why from time to time self evaluation is neccessary for our inner bodies to cleanse. We should make it our duty to ask ourselves questions such as: 

What is causing the problems in our lives? 
Why are we being subjected to them? 
What can we do to change this problems?
Who are we allowing into our lives or what are we allowing into our lives to dampen our spirits,to bring unrest,to unsettle our emotions?

 Many times bitterness, anger, jealousy, pain and so many other negative emotions over cloud our bodies. These emotions when inhaled can cause illnesses in our bodies such as high blood pressure, internal cancers, mood disorders which we develop such as bipolarism, schizophrenia, anxiety, nervous breakdowns, depression etc. An unsettled inner body leads to an unsettled outer body. 

Often times we drown ourselves in liquor, wine, smoking and other detrimental habits in order to drown our pain thus destroying our bodies more. We should know when its time to make changes. 

I encourage you to surround your world with positive energy, positive people, to love and respect yourself and your body enough to let go of whatever is hindering your growth. Pray. Meditate. Exercises such as yoga and  kickboxing are ways to get rid of some of the internal anger and bitterness which can destroy our bodies. Take care of your temple and it will function the right way. This has been Fitspiration! Be happy, be blessed, give yourself the gift of inner and outer health.
