dc.description.abstractLife is a gift from God. Our quality of life is in the hands of each individual. I believe to live life to its fullest a person needs to have a balance of the body, mind and spirit. |Yoga, Tai Chi and running are important forms of physical activity. They each have a rich history and have an importance to many cultures throughout many generations. Yoga and Tai Chi also have unique spiritual roots. The belief systems in place for each activity enhance the overall experience. Combining the spiritual practice along with each activity give the person a sense of completeness. |Running also has an important history to many cultures. Many that run, also incorporate meditation as a form of spirituality to the practice. Running to some can be a form of a moving meditation. It has been found that running can trigger endoerphans to give the runner a sence of completeness. Running allows the runner to gain both physical fitness and mental purity. |Yoga, Tai Chi and running also incorporate nutritional aspects to!each activity. When practicing all of the activities it is suggested that whomever desires the full benefits of the activity and spirituality stick to a clean diet. Foods that are created from the earth, and eaten with little or no additives are suggested.|The nutritional guidelines are also mirrored in many of the spiritual and religious practices. Depending on what faith or spiritual background a person may have, may dictate their nutritional practices. It is believed that to live the best life a person’s world should revolve around physical fitness, good nutrition and spirituality. Each person should find their balance of taking care of their body, mind and spirit.en_US
