There are only two things we need to do to be happy.
- Have a fit body.
- Have a fit mind.
Indeed this sounds very simple. It is, but it is not easy to achieve.
A fit body requires being active throughout the day. “Oh how I wish my metabolism would be better!” Contrary to popular perception, we do not move less because of low metabolism. We move less to begin with, and that leads to low metabolism!
A fit mind on the other hand, requires lesser movement and more stability. Meditation, or the ability to focus and concentrate is key. And this comes only with practice.
How contradictory! The body needs movement, while the mind needs stability.
For many of us, given all the developments in technology and instant deliveries, our bodies are mostly resting, while our minds are mostly exercising. Just reversing that, will make our lives infinitely better.
