Remember the day that you feel like everything was good and something shit happen – you started to lose your shit over the shit that happen and all you have left with was a shitty day. Out of millions people living and breathing in this world right now – only a few manage to get best out of life and I did not mean the richest or the most famous person in this world. I was referring to those that are able to unlock the key to beautiful life. The key.
We does not need to be rich to be happy – but being poor is not happy at all. We does not need to be famous to feel complete as some stars suffered depression from media pressure. We does not need to have a Phd to be recognized by others as Dashrath Manjhi was only a poor labor but people all over the world known him as the man who move the mountain.
It’s all about quality of life and finding a happy balance between work and friends and family. – Philip Green
The only key to a beautiful life – is to be able to keep things in balance and moderation. Some of us sometimes too focus on one thing until they forget that other things matters too. Some would seek riches until they forget to be with their children or wife, some would spend their time in mosque or church searching for God’s bless but they forget to spend time searching and helping person in need. When all of this happen – people lose the balance of their life. Sometimes we are so busy watering a plant until we forget to manure it. At last all goes to waste. Whenever something lose the balance – it would not work perfectly ; similar to our life.
Thus, have We made of you an ummah (Community) justly balanced (wasatan), that ye might be witnesses over the nations, and the Messenger a witness over yourselves – Quran 2:143
I would not go to deep into this issue but I will touch on several things that we can change in order to keep that balance in tact. Some of us spend so much time stressing their mind with their daily task, work load and responsibility. They stressed it so much that they ended up breaking it. Our mind works like a rubber band – it can be stretch but only to some extend. At certain extend our mind had been stretched out so much we ended up hurting our self.
Some minds can stretch so much but for some a little twist might just break it. Our mind can be train – to be fit. A mentally fit person. But the trick is to train your mental or mind is to train your body. A mental fitness comes from a physical fitness. In order to maintain a relaxed state of mind, a person should be physically active because when every time you feel stressed regardless of the cause – that just mean that your mind needed a rest time – a time out.
You does not need to be fully athletic – just take a minute to stretch your body, breath properly, walk for at least 30 minutes weekly or maybe just take a few day off – spend your day at a beach, do some window shopping or anything you like. Start to break your sweat – work out a little bit ; free your mind and keep your life balance in tact.
Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity. – John F. Kennedy
A person who is fit both physically and mentally is strong enough to face the ups and downs of life, and is not affected by drastic changes if they take place.
