Our lives are made up of several parts. Physical Fitness is one part of our lives. But, it would be naive to state that one part of your life has absolutely no affect on the other parts of your life. Our physical fitness is impacted by our emotional part of our lives and, in the same token, our emotional part of our lives is impacted by our physical fitness. The other parts of our lives include our work, intellectual, family, relationship, spiritual, recreational, and (depending how you look at it) other parts. Each of these parts are not mutually exclusive from each other. Instead, they are interdependent of each other (rather than independent of each other). Having clutter in our lives affects our physical fitness level. That is the bad news. But, that is also the good news.
If we can correct this clutter in our lives, we can affect our physical fitness and lose weight (if that is our goal). By eliminating the “stuff” in our lives, we can actually lose weight. This may not sound politically correct or even sensitive to other peoples’ needs and wants. But, the truth is if we can eliminate clutter such as junk piling up in our rooms and garages, we simplify our lives which has a direct impact on our physical fitness level.
A simple life does not mean a useless or easy life. A simple life means a clear and defined life. It means focus and direction. Now, it is important to keep those “skinny jeans” to have a goal. But, you should not have a whole closet of skinny jeans and clothes (especially if you have not worn them for several years). These items can be a negative source of energy that clutter your life. You lose control of your life. A distinct result of losing control of your life is gaining weight and being out of shape. This is an important concept to understand. Great physical fitness and shape is a life style- not just a style of life. You want to have long-term good health and fitness.
So, that is one tip for long-term good health and fitness- remove the clutter in your life. Gain control in that aspect and you will be on the road to great health and fitness. It is important to realize that “stuff” does not define who you are. Those “stuff” can be holding you back on reaching your peak in life. It is not a bad idea to have a garage sale and get rid of stuff. You will be on your road to a simplified and purposeful life- which includes your optimal health and physical fitness.
