Bodybuilding, Work, and Life...Finding Balance
October 28, 2005
Life can be rough and sometimes you need to be able to organize your
thoughts to make everything better. You can become focused on one thing and
forget about the other priorities in your life. I am going to explain the
importance of keeping a balance between bodybuilding, work, and life. Your
also going to learn a few natural techniques than can be used to keep your
life in balance.
Being fit is crucial to being able to handle all the
obstacles you come across on a daily basis. It gives you the the ability to
perform better at your job and also gives you the confidence to have a good
social life. The best way to improve your health is by bodybuilding, but
participating in a recreational sport such as basketball, is a step to
improving your health as well. This will put you in a social setting that
you feel comfortable in and also gives you the ability to make a couple of
new friends that share the same interests.
Having a positive social life is one of the most important
factors in a person`s life. It makes everything you do worthwhile and makes
you realize that others are going through the same problems as you are. You
may also find the love of your life when your out with your friends. Nobody
wants to be with a hermit so you have to fit some sort of social fun into
your busy life or you`re going to live a long, lonely life. What you can do
to become more social will depend on your values and who you feel most
comfortable around. You only know what type of person you are and what makes
you comfortable. A bodybuilder wouldn`t feel right at a golf course. A car
mechanic wouldn`t feel comfortable being around a bunch of computer wizzes.
Learning who you feel good around takes time and a lot of maturity on your
part to realize you can`t be friends with everybody. Its the same way at a
job, you can`t just fill out an application somewhere because your desperate
for a job. You need to know what the job does, the type of people you`ll be
working with, and how well you will fit in with the rest of the crew.
Work can become your worst enemy if you let it. If you hate
your job and the people you work with, of course you`re going to have a
negative attitude towards your job. Sure making money is nice, but when you
start questioning yourself, "what am i doing here," you have a problem.
There are also other problems a job can bring. If you have a bad boss, work
around negative people, work long hours, and can`t handle the stress
involved with the job, then you need to take a step back and develop a list
of ways you can start to feel better. Are you getting enough sleep, are you
exercising, are you spending enough or to much time with friends and family,
eating right? You can also try yoga or some kind of other meditation
practice, which are all good alternatives to seeing a therapist or some
doctor who just wants to take your money.
You don`t want to do to much or to little of anything.
Everything has a happy medium and you need to incorporate the practice of
balancing into your everyday life.Again, you need to write down things you
do on a daily basis and decide what things your doing in excess and develop
ways to cut back on what is customary. To much of a good thing is just as
bad as a repetitive bad habit and is important for you to realize. Life
isn`t easy and it takes a lot of time to improve on it but taking small,
gradual steps to improvemetn is the only way to achieving anything. Until
Next Time, cya!
