Getting My INSIDE To Match My OUTSIDE

I have gone on and on about working out and eating right, all the reasons "why", the benefits, the changes that can take place by doing these things. but what I rarely talk about is taking care of your spirit, mental and emotional health. These are all really important to ones well-being. And I will be the first to admit I haven't always been consistent with this one. I get so into working out, fitness, eating right, that I end up putting my internal health on the back burner. I mean, one can only take care of so much, right? Well the problem is that eventually it all comes to a head and can hit you like a semi, and if you are not careful it can throw everything you HAVE been taking care of on the outside out of whack and leave you very unbalanced. I for one REQUIRE balance, in all areas of my life, so when this situation occurs it really messes me up. A few months back a very good friend spoke some very profound words that have replayed over and over in my mind since she said them but it wasn't until recently that I decided to HEAR what she was saying. She said, "I am exceptional at taking care of my outside, but always neglect my inside". This was so true!!!! Such an "ah-ha" moment for me. With that being said, here recently due to a more than chaotic chain of life events, I have decided to take care of my inside and attempt meditation. I want to strengthen my spirit, regain my focus, and just feel more calm...So my inside can compliment my outside...
