All of us wish to stay happy all the time. But we cannot wish for the good days alone all the time, as bad days are also a part of life. There is nothing we can do about them, and all we do is sit and complain all day.
No matter how good a day we had, anything unfortunate happening at the end of it would ruin the whole day. Instead of complaining all the time, we should try to push the mishaps under the rug and move on, but it is easier said than done. So, isn’t there a way to overcome this sadness and turn it into happiness? Well, there is and one among them is Martial Arts.
Martial Arts can help you understand more about life and happiness, and achieve it, even when something worse happens. So, how can you truly achieve it? Let us look at the different ways:
The Physical Approach – Practicing Martial Arts while you feel despondent can lift you up from this state and make you happier. The best thing about martial arts is that it needs you to focus on what you are doing and learning. While you are engaged in practice and concentrating on the task at hand, you can clear your mind. During the repetition and exertion of throwing each punch or landing a kick, you bring your mind back into a state of balance. Engaging in martial arts won’t make the problems go away and you would still have to face the problems. Martial arts helps you be renewed physically and mentally, and be ready to face the challenges.
The Mental Approach – It is not only what is outside but what is inside should also be tapped in to be happy at all times. Martial arts helps each of its practitioners to slow down their mental thought processes to find the peace within. One of the best techniques to find relief is by purposeful breathing and alignment of the body in martial arts. The breathing techniques and energy gathering techniques used by some forms of martial arts can help you find quiet on the outside and joy on the inside. With a mental practice, you can regroup yourself and expel all the emotions that hold you down.
The Spiritual Approach – It is necessary for each martial art practitioner to have a connection between mind, body, and spirit, while they practice. When you are in need of happiness, it requires you to tap into the component of spirituality to make things better. With the spiritual aspect, you can have a powerful medium to pull you out on any condition.
Happiness is something that can be achieved through the physical, mental and spiritual approaches of martial arts. A good martial art workout can help in getting rid of depression, weight gain, stress, and worries. This, in turn, helps you to improve relationships, work ethic, and motivation. Improvement in these areas can better prepare you for the emotions in your life.
