Today’s Concerns about Wellness and Fitness
 

            In this wonderful age of enlightenment and advanced medicines, we should be some of the most fit, most well human beings.  But, you will most often find the opposite is true.  So how and why has this happened?  The following report takes a look at all the components that must be present for us to be fit and well.  We will examine all the necessary conditions that must be met in order for us to be fit and well.  And some of the more creative, fun and unique forms that self-help and medicine have taken over the last several centuries.

            As you read the following paragraphs, we’re going to walk through some of the more generalized areas of wellness, fitness and overall good health that each and every person should strive to attain.  We’ll then move on to examining the various areas of individual concern, fitness, wellness, the mind, body and soul importance, and the development of good health practices.  All of these areas are necessary for the whole wellness of the individual.

 

 

The Blissful Union of Wellness and Fitness
 

You pick up the magazines each day, and you’re bombarded with health and fitness information.  Advertisements and articles that are designed to impart much needed information to the reader about the state of fitness and health in America today, and what we as responsible citizens should do.  I want you to stop, and think for just one moment.  How do you determine your current fitness and wellness levels?  Does your regular doctor impart this information as you visit, does he inquire each time you go if you believe yourself to be fit and well?  Probably not.  Nor does he give you any method for determining the status on your own.  Fitness centers abound in this country, and most are staffed with counselors who can test your fitness level.  What about your wellness level?  Are they one and the same?  They are not one and the same, yet they rely heavily on each other to keep you healthy.

             

Thanks to the advances in modern medicine, the average person’s life span now exceeds seventy years. If you stop to think, that’s quite a long time to walk around on this earth. Along with the wonderful life expectancy increases, however have come the detrimental effects of overeating and unhealthy eating.  It seems that as we advance in one area, we regress in others.  This doesn’t have to be so, however.  Reaching a place of responsibility, where we combine our physical health, with our wellness enhances those extra years of life.

Being fit and being well are totally different conditions.  Your wellness rating is dependent upon your immune system, and what vitamins, supplements, and nutrition you provide for your immune system.  Fit people can sometimes be unwell.  And well people can sometimes be unfit.  However, when you do combine the two, and use sound principles based on clean living, exercise, and healthy eating, you attain a state of equilibrium where you are both fit and well. It is comparable to the Chinese philosophy of yin and yang.  The balance that must exist in the whole relies heavily on the balancing of the halves.

            The wonderful state that is attained however, when we are both fit and well, is one of the joys of being alive.  The energy levels that we experience are beyond compare, and the happiness we feel during our moments of physical triumphs, help us to put life in perspective. 

That’s an accomplishment we pass along to our children in the example that we set before them. 

We are true practitioners of the philosophies that we preach.

            The example we provide for our family, our children especially, speaks volumes to them about their own responsibilities in maintaining their health.  Being healthy is a true combination of wellness and fitness, body and mind.  Our spirit, soul, or inner voice is a benefactor in this experience, also.  Truly well and fit minds and bodies are better followers of their spirit, and spend more energy on the wellness of their spiritual aspect, also.  Spirituality is a way of assuring ourselves of a renewing, and rebirth of ourselves as caring humans.  Wellness encompasses our state of being, mind, and health.  It is a condition of the whole.  The joining of wellness and fitness in our life is a condition of the mind, body, and soul.

             

 

The Interchangeability of Wellness, Fitness and Health
 

            As stated previously, being fit and being well are totally different conditions.  Your wellness rating is dependent upon your immune system, and what vitamins, supplements, and nutrition you provide for your immune system.  Fit people can sometimes be unwell.  And well people can sometimes be unfit

            Most individuals do not take the time to completely understand the health advantages of being both fit and well.  We read and absorb the information we’re given through the media and health organizations, without ever pondering if we’re receiving all the information we need, or simply the part that is profitable to be seen or heard.  Fitness gyms need your monthly fees in order to remain operational.  They have no real concern about the condition of your immune system.  Physical fitness is a condition of the body alone.   Hospitals and doctors need you as a patient in order to remain operational; they want you to know you need to be fit and well, but often leave out important pieces that affect your wellness and, therefore, your ability to be fit.      What about eating habits?  What about vitamins?  What role does our daily intake play in our health, our wellness, and our fitness?  More than you have been lead to believe or understand.  The body’s ability to remain well under anything other than ideal conditions is a direct result of the nutrition received on a daily basis.  The mind’s ability to remain well is, again, a direct result of our nutrition intake.  For instance, the human brain doesn’t develop well without the necessary input of protein in our daily diet

You pick up the magazines each day, and you’re bombarded with health and fitness information.  Advertisements and articles that are designed to impart much needed information to the reader about the state of fitness and health in America today, and what we as responsible citizens should do.  I want you to stop, and think for just one moment.  How do you determine your current fitness and wellness levels?  Does your regular doctor as you each time you go if you believe yourself to be fit and well?  Probably not.  Nor does he give you any method for determining the status on your own.  Fitness centers abound in this country, and most are staffed with counselors who can test your fitness level.  What about your wellness level?  Are they one and the same?  They are not one and the same, yet they rely heavily on each other to keep you healthy.

            The terms are often used interchangeably.  Quite often someone will talk about their health, when they’re really addressing a fitness issue.  Then you will encounter conversations where the word wellness is used to discuss a health issue.  Because these issues are still new as far as the participating public is concerned, there will continue to be confusion as to the proper use of each term.  It’s not so important that we use the correct term, just that we take an active role in our wellness, fitness and overall health.

The same is true when considering our quality of life, what role does our overall health and wellness play in the quality of our life?
