Fitness….What is it? Health? Wellness?

*Re-posted from page to blog post (I’m still new here)

Fitness is usually synonymous with health and wellness. However, even though they are all important from a holistic point of reference, we need to clarify that they are all actually different. To be fit, in my experience, is to be able to function physically above and beyond life’s demands (within reason regarding any disabilities a person may have). Also, there needs to be a balanced body composition. This might aggravate many people. Bur research demonstrates quite universally that extra fat stored in the body will cause some adverse health effects, whether they are short term or long term.

Being healthy implies something similar but has less to do with actual body composition and physical abilities and more to do with how your organs and cells are performing. Much of this goes unnoticed. One benefit and sign of being in relatively good health is feeling ‘good,’ energetic, relaxed, peaceful, etc… Of course, that’s all subjective. Medical doctors can only measure so much.

And finally, Wellness… what is wellness exactly? Well…that too is subjective. My understanding from research and speaking with many different types of ‘paths’ (practitioners of medical sciences), is that wellness is all encompassing. Like healthy it would be peaceful, content, and joyful…or strong, healthy, and energetic. I think wellness is more of a lifestyle than a state…a journey rather than a destination.

That’s my two cents about it.

On another note….is it just my kids or do they get downright combative if they stay up even 30 minutes too late? I’ve been called many names today that I do not care for but having been a kid once I kept my patient (and stern) dad face on and calmly reinforced their duties and bedtime routines. I think kids should come with a manual….and maybe a full, money back, lifetime warranty!!  I’m totally joking…or am I…?I think I am going to wake them all up at 0400AM when I get up (oh, by the way I’m a psychotic- I wake up at 4am every morning, work on stuff, pray, workout, drink coffee, and take a COLD SHOWER) and have all three of them workout with me. I’m confident there will be no problems tomorrow night when it’s time for bed…if they make it that long. I don’t know….is that abuse? I don’t think so. Cruel? Maybe…but not abuse.
