Spirituality is a great factor which really can help in overcoming such dilemma, many of our mashaykh of four orders lived a healthy way of life. I remember hearing from my grand shaykh of Qadiriya order that a complete human is the one who’s both body and spirituality is healthy. Its a pleasure to come across such a blog.
