How you feel depends on you ability to keep all the major body systems ticking over nicely.
You’re over weight, in fact your trousers are so
tight they’re ring-barking you. You get a thumping headache after
lunch that goes away after a double shot coffee. You’ve got a crook
guts, insomnia, brain fog, reflux, constipation, piles, sore
muscles, joint pain and the deadly metabolic trio, high blood
pressure, high cholesterol level and high blood sugar. You drink too
much alcohol, coffee and cola. You exist on a diet of fat, flour,
sugar and deep fried potato.
What's happened is that the body that started off fit and healthy has succumbed to Scheissenhausen's Disease.
Because Scheissenhausen's Disease is an amalgam of the symptoms of personally-generated body system dysfunctions, the good news is that caught early enough, there's a high likelihood that it can be personally-'ungenerated'.
The key to shifting your mood from feeling dreadful to feeling absolutely fantastic is to work on the principle that when all the major body systems are working well, you'll be feeling absolutely fantastic.
So, the model to work on is one that treats the body as a somatic (total body) ecosystem with all parts working together to enhance wellbeing. If one part isn't working well, it will affect other parts.
For instance, we're familiar with the idea that a stressed mind can impact on other body systems. Blood vessels constrict sending your blood pressure up. You get rashes, gut pain etc ... What we're less familiar with is the how we feel depends a lot on how other body systems are working.
From the Fitness Frontline perspective, if you want to elevate your mood, start working on improving the health of all the major body systems. You can do that by:
As Jim Rohn said, 'Things change when you change, things get better when you get better.
The How to Manage Stress program is the Fitness Frontline contribution to feeling better. We know from medical research that people who are depressed and embark on a year of daily vigorous physical activity, feel better than people who train on a daily supply of Zoloft.
If you are in need of mood elevation we want you to sign up for the How to Manage Stress program. It starts with the Health and Fitness Check-up and introduction to the Complete Fitness Workout. You'll receive a copy of the Hourglass Diet and the How to Manage Stress ebooks. We'll teach you how to meditate and provide you with a range inner mental training audio files.
We'll monitor your progress over the first three months of the program.
