The four pillars of fitness: make it work for you
I recently introduced “the four pillars of the fitness” in a blog post. I describe that each pillar as a component of the fitness. While the fitness will always be strong when anyone with pillars are not in place, it takes all four to be really fit. These pillars are the state of mind, diet and nutrition, exercise and sleep. Studies have shown that each zone is important for full functioning of our body. You need each area and I need each area for optimal fitness.
Our state of mind is the pilot in guiding behavior and actions that lead to better diet, exercise and enough sleep. Good nutrition is important for feeding and feeding the body. For example, you need cholesterol as structural material for your cell walls and vitamin B-12 as building material for myelin on your nerve cells. Exercise is important for strengthening force, heart health, sound structure, cerebral health and more. Sleep is important for the brain too.
Each of us has different needs and different ways of life because of our work, our family, etc. Making four pillars of fitness work for you is important for you to enjoy a life of quality and a vital life all your life. Let’s go through every point so you can promulgate them in your life.
Pillar 1: Mindst. You can use this pillar in different ways. Attitude is a belief. Both are in the same group. What you believe and that fitness is important about the type of action you are going to take. If you want to have the fitness spirit, start believing that you represent it. When you do that, then you will take an action focused on fitness. The formation of mindfulness is a solution to focus on fitness. Hypnosis helps change programming and subconscious habits. There are many methods that I read in my book, “Think about your own fitness” that can be used.
Pillar 2: diet and nutrition. Many people who have falsely believe they can participate in the food they want. To be fully able, eating good foods is very important. Supplementation helps support a deficient diet in some key nutrients. The importance of adequate nutrition is that they help create new cells, to provide good energy, keeps the body and brain working fully. Transformed sugars actually cause inflammation as well as brain withdrawal. Dr. Lori Shemek has a wonderful book on the use of nutrition to burn fast fast; “Fire-up your fat burns”.
Pillar 3: Exercise. Muscle strength and endurance are very important in our lives. When we are weak and fragile, wounds become more important. In addition, your body and your brain get other benefits from exercise. The more the intense exercise, plus a gene of certain genes (neurotrophic factor derived from the brain) is activated, which contributes to creating more neurons and neuroconnections. In this case, use it or lose it applies to both the body and the brain. Exercise makes you smarter.
Pillar 4: Sleeping. Many recent studies have shown how much sleep has on our brain. Many have known this intuitively for the eons. The optimal fitness can not be had when there is a lack of sleep. This affects the mentality (pillar 1). And this creates a “slippery slope” in the fitness. WANES motivation to want to train. The desires of simple carbohydrates will increase. And to read the other pillars, you know what will happen when it is not completely engaged. Locate between 7 and 9 hours of sleep a day. If you sleep less at night, add a barrel during the day.
