Start visualizing yourself as the healthiest person in the world. They say, everything is created twice i.e.first in the mind and then next in reality. This principle holds true with health as well.
So, vividly see the picture of yourself as completely fit and normal human being enjoying everything like others. Think about it, dream it, feel it, become confident about it and you will achieve it.
Visualize every night before going to bed & every morning as you wake up, you will start noticing that you are becoming healthier day by day.
2. Expression : –
This is very important. Most of us don’t allow the emotions to come out. However, ideally whatever we feel ex. Anger, jealousy, hatred even happiness should be expressed. Don’t store the emotions in your stomach otherwise. They will burst like a balloon one day.
It is generally said that people who cry often are weak. However, it is not the case. In fact, people who complain regularly are the strongest people in the world. So, crying out the stressful emotions will heal your body.
Follow this. ‘Think seriously and live lightly’. Well, this is a slogan of the ‘Indian Army’, and generally, we do exactly the opposite i.e.we think lightly and live seriously.
These expressions will regularize your breathing & help you to breathe freely with ease.
According to a survey, an average Indian eats junk food 7 times a month. If we can reduce it to 2 times per month, it will not harm the stomach. Moreover, the fun element in eating out will be maintained. I personally love to try different veg dishes at various restaurants hence I will not even ask you to completely stop eating out. And eating out in the company of friends is good for overall emotional well being.
Then the extremely important part, no matter what is your choice of food, one must chew what he or she eats for at least 32 times. By the way, golfer Tiger Woods follow this technique. I learnt this simple tip from Mr Sandeep Maheshwari. I was suffering from acidity & other digestion related issues. As I started chewing my food 32 times, from very next day I was free from acidity completely and my digestion improved. And now, as I practice it daily my skin tone is enhanced, I became fairer, energetic and started to feel light from inside. This is the best beauty tip for girls which doesn’t cost money. Also, don’t forget to drink plenty of water every day.
Eat Amla (Indian gooseberry) or other citrus fruits (lime-water is the best) and ‘Chyawanprash’ (a jam-like cooked mixture of sugar, honey, Triphala, ghee, sesame oil, berries and other herbs and spices. It is prepared as per the instructions suggested in Ayurvedic texts.) daily,to boost your immune system. This will help you to stay away from viral infections and illness due to season changes etc.
Stop bad habits like smoking, drinking, aerated drinks etc.
Reduce the TV time: If you are watching TV for two hours a day, I would suggest you reduce it to one hour. Carefully choose the programs that you watch. Don’t watch violence, too much family drama etc. Don’t allow the emotional atyachar created by media to affect you. Don’t watch the news for hours. It will help you feel light & empty. Remember, we must empty our mind while going to bed.
We need to feel relaxed all the time. Ability to feel rested is lost due to constant engagements & busy lifestyle. But one should rest before he/she gets tired. This is the secret to longevity. Courtesy: Dale Carnegie’s book ‘How to stop worrying & start living’.
Secondly, learning the relaxation techniques like ‘SHAVASANA’ (A practice in Yoga) will help to rest every part of the body.
Taking small breaks while you work and taking a ‘POWER NAP’ can make you feel rested while at work.
Doing light exercising at home & making it a daily habit can turn the things around. Exercise coupled with Yoga can turn out to be a good combination and will help you to stay the enthusiastic whole day.
Practice deep breathing, and it will fill your body with more oxygen & thereby energize you.
Indulge yourself in sports you love. Participate & feel the thrill with full spirit of the game. You will start enjoying life.
Recreation is also a very important part of life. One can start hobbies like singing, dancing, painting, photography etc.
Well, few people may say that we can’t sing or dance. I would like to assure all of you that we can sing, dance and paint the way we want and take it to any level up. If you do it consistently without bothering what others will say, it will improve eventually.
Write something at the end of the day, play with your kids, pose crazy for photographs, click something with your cell phones. All these activities will make your life more interesting and you will hardly have time to worry about ill health.
