We often focus on just the physical side of life here, because as fitness trainers, it’s the biggest part of our jobs. There’s another side of life and that’s what makes people feel happy about living. It’s the reason that people workout and get fit. Living longer is only important if each day is important. That can only be accomplished if it’s spent on fruitful activity that truly makes you happy. What does your bliss look like? When you find the answer to that question, you’ll understand why working out and living healthy is so important.
Your bliss doesn’t have to be something exotic.
Are you incredibly happy just spending time with your family and friends and want to enjoy that longer? There’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, that’s quite understandable. Nothing brings more joy than spending time with people you care about and love. Getting more time to watch children grow and spend time sharing thoughts with friends and family makes life more pleasurable and can be the reason you choose to eat healthy and exercise on a regular basis.
Is your bliss learning about new places and new experiences?
Perhaps you’re an adventurer who wants to climb the highest mountains or see the sites of ancient civilizations. That takes plenty of energy and good health. When you consider how living healthy gives you more time and physical ability to do it, it makes going to the gym just that much easier. If you want to take up a new sport like rock climbing, being fit makes it possible.
Do you want to create things or make your personal environment more attractive with your own hands?
Do you want to build your own home, design the perfect furniture or create the perfect herb garden? Is your bliss based on using your mind and own hands to create something that is unique? You need energy to be the most creative and good health to continue your quest.
- Finding your bliss makes it easier to keep your appointment with good health and make the lifestyle changes to live longer and healthier.
- It’s not selfish to look for what makes you happy. Everyone deserves to be happy. It doesn’t stop you from fulfilling obligations to others or take anything away from others.
- Everyone should have a special joy in life they look forward to enjoying. That joy can be different as time passes. You can also have more than one joy.
- If you’re a foodie, you can change your bliss slightly to something healthier, like learning to find and even make healthy delicious food can be your bliss. If your goal is having fun with the gang, healthy active fun can be the ultimate bliss when you change to a healthy lifestyle.
