Oh, the comforts of home!
Today, the majority of people, especially in this country have a pretty comfortable home life. Comfortable beds, nice, plush furniture to sit on, recliners, cable television, computers, stereos, the list could go on and on.
There are so many things that tempt us to sit idly by and entertain our minds instead of making the effort to get up and exercise our bodies.
It takes very little effort to surf the web, where it takes some discipline to get up and work on your what ever you wish.
It is also not going to make you any younger, healthy, or stronger.
Although there is a time for relaxing in front of the television and a time for surfing the net to increase your knowledge, you have to make sure that you maintain a balance between activity and inactivity.
You have to balance your workouts, your sport's training, meditation, stretching, and strength training, with relaxing, reading, and studying.
Too much of anything is not good, whether it is working out or sleeping.
The lifestyle one needs is balancing every part of your life – spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally.
If any of these areas falls out of balance, all the other areas suffer as well, and complete idleness will throw them all out of balance.
Employ discipline to achieve balance.
