Fitness of the Body

Fitness of the Body

Bodily fitness is being able to deal with and handle the daily stresses of life, and good physical and mental health, especially when maintained by proper diet, exercise, and habits.  Nutrition refers to the nurturing of our body, in our ability to keep it healthy and functioning as it is supposed to.  Our ability to provide the body with all the necessary food, vitamins, and minerals so that we continue to thrive in our daily life processes is a part of overall fitness.  Fitness refers to the condition of good physical, mental, and spiritual health.

Fitness of the body occurs when all the body processes, physical and mental are functioning at peak levels. What does it take to achieve complete body fitness? It requires more than simply taking a trip to the gym or a walk in the park.

Many factors come into play when we consider our body’s fitness. The daily intake of food, vitamins, and water are absolute necessities, and most often the items thought about.  What about the conditioning of our body to deal with life each day?

Physical Exercise

Does our physical exercise have anything to do with the fitness of our body? Absolutely.  For one condition without regard to the other, is not a complete whole.  The body includes all of our physical processes, our mind, and our physical being as a whole.  When we give thought to the fitness of the body, most often we contemplate our physical condition as it applies to our cardiovascular needs and our weight.  But our bodies are much more than hearts and nice figures.  What about all of our other organs?  Are they fit? How do we maintain the fitness of the entirety?  Daily physical exercise benefits the body as a whole, taking time to rest and restore what has been depleted from our body over the course of the day, and making sure that we adequately supply our entire body with the nutrition necessary for healthy function. 

If we use our resources wisely and educate ourselves about the things our body needs to maintain fitness, over the course of our life, it isn’t a difficult thing to attain. But you cannot abuse your body for years and then hope for immediate results in trying to attain overall fitness.  It didn’t become unfit overnight, and it won’t become fit again that quickly.

Proper attention to the physical needs of each part of your body results in the fitness of the whole.  Every part of your physical body exists to work in unison with another part of the body.  Two hands are necessary for the optimal functioning of the limbs, two feet, two eyes, etc.  The physical body is designed to work better than any machine invented to date.  It is more complex and powerful than any piece of equipment we have on the market.  It takes more abuse than believable and continues to operate, even without the daily requirements being met, for several days.  It is a fascinating machine, as machines go.  But it is an even more fascinating subject when we choose to care for our bodies as the temples they really are.  They house our mind and soul, and when the body is fit, it does its job tremendously well.
