Developing a Healthy, Balanced Child

There’s more to education than reading, writing, and math. Children need to learn how to control their growing bodies, deal with complex emotions, and navigate social situations.

Academic schools are great for educating the mind, but what about the rest of the child? Recent budget constraints have cut funding for physical education, music and art education, and many other “nonacademic” disciplines.

Let’s look at some of these “nonacademic” areas:

Physical Fitness

Children need healthy exercise, but they also need to learn good eating habits to stay healthy, as well as gross and fine motor skills to develop their coordination and body awareness. Unfortunately, many schools don’t address these needs.

Mental Discipline

It seems more and more children these days exhibit symptoms of ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), and with our short-attention-span society, they need a structured way to learn to focus or concentrate. Many recent laws have stripped the ability of public schools to enforce discipline.

Emotional Self-Control

In many ways, the difference between a child and an adult is emotional control. Temper tantrums seem to come naturally to children, who have to learn over time that they cannot always get their own way and must control their emotions in order to be considerate of others. Emotional education is not part of your average school curriculum.

Social Confidence

Learning to deal with other people is a skill set that can be learned. Unfortunately, character education — the very foundation of treating people well – is not a proper academic subject.

martial arts kidsSo, where can concerned parents turn?

The martial arts have centuries of experience teaching physical, mental, and emotional discipline. Students learn amazing physical skills. They practice mental discipline every day, learning emotional self-control. Most importantly of all, they are taught right from wrong to develop outstanding character and personal leadership.

Hundreds of parents in our community have seen their children get a balanced education in our children’s martial arts programs.

5 Ways to Bring Your Life Back into Balance

Balance is a tricky thing: too much of this or too little of that, and OOPS! you’re off balance.

Human beings are complicated: We all have physical needs, intellectual needs, emotional needs, spiritual needs, and social needs. With all these aspects to our lives, it can be difficult to attain and maintain balance. Here are 5 ways to bring balance into your life:meditate

  1. Exercise Daily. Your body was designed to move. Exercise builds strength, improves circulation, endurance, flexibility, and overall health. If you exercise too little, you tend to get sick more often. If you exercise too much, you may injure yourself. The right amount of exercise keeps you healthy.
  2. Focus. Your mind is like a muscle in that it can be exercised to become stronger and trained to perform better. Learn to control your thoughts by practicing focus. Focus on whatever you are doing – whether it’s work or play – to train your mind to perform better. You can handle stress better by intentionally focusing on solutions instead of problems.
  3. Calm down. Riding a roller coaster of emotions wreaks havoc on your life. You can control your emotions, or they can control you. By staying calm and centered, you can focus your energy in a positive direction.
  4. Count your blessings. When you compare yourself to others, it’s easy to see someone who has more. It’s also just as easy to see someone who has less. Be grateful for what you have. The secret to happiness is not getting what you want, but wanting what you get.
  5. Associate with positive people. As much as 80 percent of our happiness comes from others. If your friends are negative, angry, or unhealthy, you will tend to be negative, angry, and unhealthy. Why not choose positive friends who will encourage you to be healthy, focused, calm, and happy?

Most people are good in one area or another, but balance, by definition, means that one or two areas aren’t enough. You need to balance all areas of your life.

martial arts coupleThe easiest way to achieve all these goals in one shot is to practice the martial arts. You will get great, healthy exercise, learn to focus your mind, calm your emotions, and appreciate what you have. Possibly, the best part is that you will make positive new friends and role models who will help you maintain healthy balance in your life.
