Successful Weight Loss And Fitness Depends On Spiritual Balance

It’s easy to become trapped in the notion that weight loss is purely a physical process. After all, we see our physical image in the mirror, and it reflects what the world sees.

We become distracted by this illusion of ourselves, and forget we embody a spirit. Learn ways to see past the mirror’s reflection, and gain lasting weight loss and physical fitness.

Physical weight loss and fitness are bound closely with our thoughts and spiritual well-being. Often, the extra pounds are the result of physical or emotional trauma. What we do not see is that this permeates our thought processes and to our spiritual core. Trauma or abuse is pervasive throughout our entire being.

It is easy to think that people will not notice us if we add the extra pounds. That is not true. We are noticed. We garner the attention that we are trying to avoid, because of the deep seeded pain we are carrying in our core self.

Put simply, we are more than a physical body. Our logic may deem that losing weight is solely associated with the physical body. The physical body reflects the physical aspects of too much weight. It harbors painful joints, illness, or chronic sleep issues.

This is the physical manifestation of the issues that trouble us.
