To be truly fit, there is more to the equation than just going to the gym. Physical fitness is a very important thing and can go a long way to the improvement of our health, but it does not show the entire picture. True and complete fitness lies in the body, mind, and spirit. To be wholisticly fit, one must have a both healthy and functional physical wellness, a spiritual wellness, and a mental and emotional functionality and wellness. This is something that is too often overlooked in modern society. 

Take a Whim: Go Out Alone to Appreciate Nature

This may very well sound corny, but trust me when I assure you that it is not. Although many many bad things happen in this world daily, it is still a wonderful place to be. To fully appreciate the beauty and peace of our world, we must get out in it. One of the best ways to accomplish this is to go out into nature alone. Without distractions and things to inhibit pure, clear thought, we can begin to fully take in the beauty and peace of  our world, on small and grand scale. Simply being alone in the wild can go a long way for our happiness, peace of mind, and clarity.

Celebrate the Wonderful People in Your Life

Too often, we do not appreciate the fabulous gift that our family and friends are in our lives. What would life be like if they were not there? The answer does not bear contemplation. So while time alone with the natural beauty of our habit is both extremely important and extremely underrated, spending time in the midst of your friends and family members is also very important. These people, whether obviously or not, contribute so much to our lives, and they deserve our time and attention.

Balance Work With Pleasure

It is called The American Dream, but in reality it could also be called "Being a Workaholic." Now, I am not by any means tring to de-value the virtue of hard work, because I am not. Hard work is very important, as it builds our work ethic and sense of devotion while making great contributions to others and the economy. However, it is also important that we devote time to hobbies and other things that we love to do outside of our work. While this may sound selfish (however I hope that it does not), it is a great and healthy thing to put our time and effort into something that we enjoy doing or are good at. Simply using God's gifts to create explore is a wonderful thing in itself.

Thank you all for reading, and I hope that my efforts have gone at least a small way in helping to enrich your lives.
