Gain Independence From An Unhealthy Lifestyle

Gain Independence From An Unhealthy Lifestyle

By: - August 14, 2020

While most of us are struggling during these difficult times and are dependent on doctors and other medical practitioners, we are also highly dependent on our health. This pandemic taught us the need to invest in our health. It taught us that true independence comes from complete dependence on our health, be it, physical, mental or emotional. To ensure a thriving lifestyle, there is a need to address the body and mind in their true sense.

 

Here are some ways in which we can gain true independence from an unhealthy lifestyle:

 

Yoga and meditation

Yoga and meditation are helpful in calming the mind and relaxing the body. As we are amid a pandemic, it is necessary to be aware of our feelings and be mindful of how we respond to what we feel. During the lockdown, a lot of us started practicing yoga and meditation. We inculcated a lot of good habits. However, it is unfortunate that we are slowly letting go of our positive habits post the lockdown.

 

Eat healthy

It is as cliched as it sounds, but is also as important as it sounds. This pandemic is a testament to the need to invest in our health. We are highly and totally dependent on our health, especially during such a crisis. And eating healthy doesn’t just affect the body, but also the mind. A sattvik diet is recommended in order to keep the mind anxious free during challenging times.

 

Detox your body

One of the most effective ways to detox your body is through consuming lots of fluids. There are a lot of delicious detox drinks that allow the body to cleanse itself. These drinks not only boost the metabolism of an individual but also helps in weight management.

 

Do not skip your breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal for an individual. Not having breakfast increases the risk of inflammation and other gastric problems. Eating healthily in the morning ramps up the metabolism and supports weight management. This first meal should include foods that are rich in carbohydrates and can be easily digested in order to provide the required energy in the morning.

 

Stay in proximity to nature

With our busy lifestyles, we have been detaching ourselves from nature. We often forget that to thrive we need to get back to our roots, again, and again, and again. Nature not only calms the mind, but also heals the body with the help of its therapeutic powers. Naturopathy is one of the best ways to stay connected with the goodness of nature. Mother nature has a lot to offer us, and naturopathy is the mediator through which nature heals us!

Self Care For Good Health

Self Care – What It Is And Why Is It Important?

Self-care is a conscious action taken by a human for the well being of their mind, body and soul.

Safeguarding your well being is in your hands. A human being cannot function efficiently without a healthy mind, body or spirit. Sometimes because of an unhealthy lifestyle or sometimes because of the constant juggle to balance family time and working hours, people tend to forget their health. Your ill health doesn’t only affect you but it also affects your family, social life and professional life. Therefore, it is important to take care of yourself and keep yourself healthy.

 

Lifestyle Diseases – They Are Affecting You

We often don’t realise how our day to day habits affect our lifestyle. Such habits make our lifestyle unhealthy, later giving birth to lifestyle diseases. Now what do we mean by an unhealthy lifestyle? 

Unhealthy eating habits like immense consumption of sweets, desserts and junk food leads to lifestyle diseases like diabetes, obesity, chronic heart diseases, etc. Excessive consumption of cigarettes, alcohol and drugs lead to skin diseases, psychological disorders and several other mental illnesses. Sometimes due to work pressure or unhealthy habits, the sleep-wake cycle is disturbed. This creates an imbalance in the biological processes of the human body, as a result of which the human body suffers from lifestyle diseases.
When laziness and unhealthy habits come together to control the lifestyle of a human being, such diseases take birth in the human body.
