“It is health that is real wealth & not pieces of gold and silver.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
While there is nothing wrong with enjoying life & occasionally indulging in worldly pleasures, we should not lose focus of what is really important, our health! Remember, without good health everything else is obsolete. You can have all the wealth in the world, but without health, you will never be able to fully enjoy it. This year let us learn to focus on living well, eating right & staying healthy, not only for ourselves but also for our loved ones!
“Walking is man’s best medicine.”
Regular brisk walking can help reduce the risk of heart disease & stroke, & also help strengthen bones & improve balance! So what are you waiting for? Get those walking shoes on & go for a walk right away. We promise it will help you feel refreshed, positive & happy! If you feel that you do not have the time to go for a 20-30-minute walk daily, try and indulge in other smaller exercises throughout the day. For instance, you can start by skipping the lift and taking the stairs every morning!
“Calm mind brings inner strength & self-confidence & that’s very important for good health.”
– Dalai Lama
Good health is not just about being physically fit or achieving that magic number on the weighing scale. Mental health is equally important as one’s physical health. This year, while we work towards improving our physical health, let us not forget about our mental health! Try and cramp in a little bit of yoga or meditation into your daily schedule. These mental exercises will not only help you stay calm and focused throughout the day but will also help you speed up weight loss naturally!
“One meal won’t make you unhealthy, just like one workout won’t make you fit.”
An occasional day of eating out or consuming junk food is completely all right. But don’t make eating an unhealthy diet part of your daily meal plan. Instead prioritize eating healthy & ensure your daily diet is a healthy & wholesome one. Ensure you consume a good amount of vegetables, fruits, protein, and whole grains daily. Follow this diet daily and soon you will begin to reap its benefits of natural weight loss, improved skin health, strong immunity & protection from sickness and disease!
