Exercise is very important for the fitness of one’s body and everyone should have a good regimen that they maintain well. Some, more than others, have trouble with a good diet and good physical fitness because with such busy and chaotic lives there is no time to crunch in a run or make a decent meal. A lot of people have almost no exercise and a poor diet because they have a job or even kids that keep them pretty busy and stopping for fast food is just easier than going to the store, buying a well balanced mean and then having to spend time preparing and cooking that meal. For some it is just too much. But everyone should try to set aside at least a little time for excise and a good meal when they can.
Total fitness however, is more than a good exercise regimen and a good diet. Total fitness requires that one also has a good mind. The brain is a muscle like any other. If you do not use it becomes atrophied and you lose some of what it is capable of. The mid should be active and used well on a daily basis just like all of your other muscles should. And just like eating well, this does take time. It can also take money depending on how you do this.
There are many options for exercising the mind. You can use flash cards or some sites geared towards the mind. You could also keep up a good education. There is nothing that stimulates the mind like a good education. Now, I know that a lot people don’t have the money for college but there are ways around that.
Part of fitness is having a well balanced life and knowledge is a big part of that. There are a lot of single mothers whose lives revolve around their children, which is not at all a bad thing. However, if they were to go to college they could improve their job and therefore their lives. Their children will grow up and they will begin to have more and more time for themselves. Once they do it is going to be great to have a degree, a job that they love and that they are proud of and a good head on your shoulders. All things that benefit a single mother will benefit her children as well.
If you are a single mother but don’t think that you could ever get into college or get a degree, then you should at least know what options are out there. There are specific scholarships for single mothers out there just waiting to be taken by bright young women such as yourselves. Getting a scholarship could change your entire life for the better and the lives of your children as well. Maybe you already have a pretty busy life but there are online classes and a lot of opportunities to better yourself. So why not go out there and take them and make your life whatever you want it to be.
