Balancing Act - Moderation in All as key to Enjoying Great Natural Health



I have been looking at several issues pertaining to life, nature and health, and I concluded when I came to discover, that indeed life is all about balance – a balancing act on the stage of existence. The fact about staying naturally healthy is really about moderation in all ways and in all things. Therefore our individual life style calls for utmost discipline and self control. It is this balancing act in all that we do that is necessary for harmony between us and nature or our planet, as well as an agreement within our body system. We must at all time see the need to resolve the coexistence of body, mind and soul.

Balance is necessary for harmony

The following ways are just a few aspects of our life where absolute moderation confirms the need for a total balance in our activities. Thus by modeling our lifestyles this way will always engender harmony within us, and with our planet earth.

It is a fact that too much sleep can cause stroke. This is a recent scientific finding by health experts which is still as shocking as you can just imagine. Subsequently, you should also know that by logic, too little sleep can at the same time cause stroke too! This is because if you do not have enough rest or sleep to be precise, you are already prone to a heightened blood pressure which could lead to a heart problem if not controlled, and even a stroke if there is further deterioration of the situation.

Inadequate drinking of water will lead to you becoming dehydrated. Dehydration of course can trigger off all manner of ailments such as headaches, arthritic and back pains, wrinkles, dry skin, etc. But it will also interest you to know that too much of water consumption can equally pose a health risk to you.

What about food? Yes, overeating will easily lead you to becoming overweight or obese, while not eating enough will cause you to be undernourished, thin and weak. You will not be able to carry out strenuous tasks if you do not eat very well because you will be frail and lacking in strength.
