Benefits of Living Well
Mumbai, 3rd March 2015
The life that we lead today is full of stress. Be it work related worry or exam related anxiety, constant stress has become a hallmark of our lives. Its repercussions can be seen manifesting in the form of diseases and mental illnesses. It affects the quality of our lives and can often cause strain in relationships. While it is true that stress is unavoidable, we can always circumvent its negative effects by changing our lifestyle.
Brisk walking daily for 30 minutes is known to reduce our cortisol levels and improves cardiovascular health. Apart helping us lose weight, walking also promotes a sense of wellbeing. Yoga, an underappreciated system of physical techniques, offers a wide range of benefits to our stressed constitutions. It promotes the harmony of the body, mind and spirit. An unhealthy gut is known to be the hotbed of diseases. A healthful diet comprising vegetables, whole grains, oils and fresh fruits can work wonders for wellbeing. A high fiber diet can cleanse the colon and keep the gut healthy. Adopting these small changes in our otherwise stressful lifestyle can relive us of our health problems.
