When you’re at work, it’s easy to wind up clicking away on your computer, or tuning out your phone call, or even scrolling though your favourite social networking site. It’s easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of daily life, to become distracted, and lose sight of your health.
If you think you’re doing fine, it’s time to think about how you’re spending your time.
Do you take time to exercise?
If so, are you making time for a healthy diet?
If you answered yes to both of these questions, you may have a bigger problem on your hands. As a society, we’re becoming more overweight, and we’re spending less time outside, playing outdoor activities such as outdoor sports and activities.
So how can we reconcile our obsession with technology, with our increased attention to nutrition, with our loss of physical fitness? If we play outdoor sports, we get to go on the road again, we get to interact with other people, we get to take in the outdoors. If we eat better, we also get to interact with other people, and eat fresh foods. If we exercise, we get to go on the road again, and get to exercise in fresh air and outdoors again. And when we exercise, we get to take in the natural scenery around us, and we get to feel energized again.
With outdoor sports, there’s even more of a sense of accomplishment, because when you’re outdoors, you can take on more challenging courses, and if you’re a very good golfer, you can even finish outside in the wild, on a green you never saw before.
So the idea is to combine both of these, a focus on fitness, and a focus on nutrition. A focus on nutrition can be difficult, because nutrition is very abstract. When you think about it, you can even lose track of the actual nutrition, it’s more about the math and the scientific facts and figures. It’s all about counting calories, and watching your macros, and eating foods that are low in calories. But when you get outside, you get to think about physical fitness, and about being a better, healthier person, and your mental fitness comes out, and your body feels better, and you can play more demanding sports.
So we really need both, we need both, in the mix. It can be difficult to decide what will work with our lifestyles, but it is possible. One thing is for sure, you can overcome your obesity, and improve your fitness. You can manage both of these issues, and you can do it by incorporating both of these issues into your lifestyle, and getting both of these done regularly.
