What exactly is 'optimal mind body spirit life force' and why should you care about it? Let's start with the definition of life force.
Optimal life force Life force is, by definition*: The force or influence that gives something its vitality or strength. The spirit or energy that animates living creatures; the soul. *Oxford dictionary.
Optimal life force then is the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual energy, vitality, and resilience to live joyfully in your body and face the challenges of your life with grace and more ease. And to enjoy life to its fullest.
I believe we need to live consciously to achieve and sustain optimal life force. Conscious, sustainable, healthy living is an attitude, a lifestyle, a way of being. It is about living an awake life with care and concern for how we impact the world around us. A commitment to doing well by and living in harmony with ourselves, our loved ones, and the environment.
Optimal, where it concerns health, means having an above-average EQ - emotional intelligence. Honing our ability to accept those things we cannot change, cultivating the courage and the skillset to change the things we can, and developing the wisdom to know the difference. Having a mind more like water - sharp, yet yielding.
Optimal life force is a Lived Experience, Not a Thing You Can Get. To achieve optimal vitality requires us to do the best we can to practice those habits that keep us strong, resilient, and flexible mind, body, and spirit. The habits that allow us to be, feel, and act in a way that serves who and how we want to be. Our best will change from day to day and from one part of the day to the next.
Every day we make unconscious and conscious decisions that either contribute to or take away from the health, happiness, and overall quality of our lives and the lives of others: family, friends, colleagues, and the environment/the planet as a whole. Living consciously better enables us to make choices that improve our wellbeing, peace, and happiness. Which allows us to age with power and to best serve others. Or at the very minimum, do the least amount of harm to ourselves and others. XOMB
