Having any health dificulties or ‘problems’ can be a challenge, life can be more difficult on a daily basis, much more so compared to those who do not have to deal with the daily challenges that come with having health difficulties. However that doesnt mean that we have to live a limited or boring life.
Life is for living no matter what your challenges are, thankfully our society is becoming more and more aware of equal rights and opportunities. I wanted to focus today on the power of activity, for anyone who has any health difficulties or disabilities and may struggle. From short term health difficulties to long term to any form of physical/mental disability, all can benefit from the power of focus on activity.
The term activity encompasses all forms of activities from activities of daily living, exercise, art, music, hobbies and generally just the act of ‘doing’ things.
The power behind activity is that of focus. When we become so purely focused on any activity we are absorbed in it and for that time we do not have to think about anything else such as daily challenges and stresses. Not only this but any activity has a transformative power to it once we become entirely absorbed in it and continue to practice it.
We all have daily activities, we are constantly performing. Not all of these take are full attention and focus however, often we can perform things mindlessly throughout the day. The key is to find something that no.1 you enjoy and no.2 that challenges you. Then try to make regular time for this activity. That time is your time , to let go and just focus on whatever it is for you that really allows you to become absorbed in it. There is Something for everyone that you just feel fits with you. If you havent found it yet, try new things; learn an instrument , a new sport, whatever seems to take your interest.
We all need that regular time out and activities that we can become so purely focused on give us this well needed time. For anyone with health challenges or not , needs time out, life has enough stresses and strains , taking this time will bring you back to yourself.
Through finding an activity that you can purely focus on whatever it may be you can increase your confidence and self- esteem and it also takes your focus of any daily challenges and stressors. This is where the transformation comes in when the activity becomes the focus any health challenges / worries you may have lose their power of you.
It is possible through activity to also exceed the expectations of others and even yourself , prove others wrong,like many have done. If they say cant be done and you want to, then give it your best shot. Not everything is for everyone, but find activities which work for you, what feels good and right for you. Make that your focus.
‘Live life to the max and dont let anything hold you back.’
