The importance of regular exercise is immeasurable! Getting the body moving is one of the best ways to maintain our body weight and image, health and wellness. When considering overall human well being from a holistic perspective, there are 3 additional balancing factors that are of about equal relevance as exercise. These are nutrition, sleep (rest), and mental/ emotional health. These components are comparable to the wheels of a car. If any one wheel is out of balance then the car will not run efficiently. Perhaps it can still run, but will be out of balance to varying degrees, and could potentially do significant damage to the vehicle. With parallel to this topic, let’s consider the vehicle the “person”, either in or out of balance. Lets correlate nutrition and hydration as the “fuel”, sleep as “maintenance”, and mental/ emotional health as the “electrical system”.
