Many aspects of our lives require balance. Focusing too much on one area may cause another to weaken. Becoming a well rounded individual requires us to devote time and attention to several parts of our lives.
This idea is very important when it comes to your health. We often see extremes in the fitness industry – people lifting insane amounts of weight or running hundreds of miles at a time. These individuals spend all of their time focusing on one aspect of fitness – usually neglecting all the others.
In order to feel good over a long period of time we must find a sustainable, balanced approach. We want to be strong enough to avoid injury during yard work and also have enough endurance to run a 5k with your friends.
Find something that works for you. It will take some time, but in the long run it’s worth it.
