Training and nutrition: the pillars for mind and body wellbeing
How to achieve and maintain the balance between physical health and psychological wellbeing?
The ideal condition in which we should all be able to live is that of “psychophysical wellbeing”. This is considered the perfect balance between the health of both body and mind, a not so immediate goal that requires commitment and constant work both on daily habits and self awareness.
The delicate balance of mind and body wellbeing is based on three fundamental pillars:
- Positive attitude towards oneself, situations and other people;
- Psycho-emotional balance;
- Good physical health.
In today’s world, the stress from work and personal commitments, the frenzy of the environments in which we live, and the continuous race to achieve increasingly ambitious goals, put a strain on serenity and health with the risk of developing diseases.
When trying to prevent this, it becomes essential to follow a healthy lifestyle by paying attention to nutrition, regular physical activity and inner work.
Training and healthy eating, the pillars of holistic wellbeing
To obtain concrete benefits in the short, medium and long term, it is necessary to have consistency and adopt a healthy lifestyle based on the two key pillars of psychophysical wellbeing: balanced nutrition and regular training.
Proper nutrition is the key to living longer, staying fit, having the energy you need to better face the day and preventing the onset of diseases.
The ideal diet includes all the macronutrients useful to the body without drastic deprivation, plus seasonal fruits and vegetables, whole grains, oilseeds, dried fruit, legumes and fibre. Red meat and dairy products, on the other hand, should be consumed in moderation.
Another very important aspect when it comes to nutrition is awareness.
Yes, in a society “always in a hurry”, often meals (especially breakfast and lunch) are either skipped or consumed in a hurry, standing or working at a desk…
Nothing could be more wrong: bringing attention to food and the act of eating is essential to stay present while eating, awareness is the first step to a healthy relationship with food.
It involves “turning off the autopilot” and enjoying every bite as an extraordinary and pleasant opportunity by concentrating, with a calm and compassionate attitude, on the table and the present moment.
In this way, we return to activate all senses and we are again able to understand what and how much we eat when we feel full and what the emotions and sensations related to each food we taste.
Closely linked to a healthy diet, regular exercise is a real panacea for the body and mind.
No more prolonged sedentary lifestyle, especially indoors, ample space for daily physical training should be found, taking advantage, as much as possible, of the open air.
Practising a new sport, going to the gym, but also taking all the possible opportunities to get moving, is the best way to ensure psychophysical wellbeing: climbing stairs, getting off at one or two bus stops before your destination, parking the car further away, taking at least half an hour of walking a day, buying an exercise bike and using it when it rains or when watching TV… These are just a few examples to help us keep fit.
