In your everyday busy schedule, you have plenty of things to conquer. Running out of Fruits & Vegetables is the last thing you need on your plate.
The last two decades have brought about significant changes in the lifestyle of Indians. Change is the only constant, but shouldn’t happen at the cost of one’s health. The world has witnessed a rise in the number chronic diseases. This can be attributed to many factors, one of them being lack of proper ‘diet’.
Food consumption plays a major role in the well-being of an individual. ‘How is my food grown?’ has become the most frequently asked question by the ever-curious, millennial consumer, with the rising awareness of chronic diseases. We all know that conventionally grown foods use synthetics and pesticides, which are a known deterrent to good health. This has led to a rise in the popularity of organic food products. Organic foods are packed with beneficial nutrients and antioxidants, repairing the damage done by unhealthy eating habits.
Few tips for healthier life:
Schedule a walk with a friend or co-worker. Ayurveda considers walking a tridoshic exercise: it balances all three doshas without putting excessive strain on your body. It calms the mind and nourishes the senses.
Create a fresh lunch. Foods that are processed, canned, frozen or packaged are harder to digest, and thus create ama, or toxins. Also, because they are old, denatured by processing, or include harmful ingredients such as chemical preservatives, they no longer contain nature's intelligence. Rather, they create ama and block nature's intelligence from reaching the cells. Just for today, make the effort to eat a fresh, warm lunch. Eat in a settled, quiet atmosphere and focus on your food when you eat.
Drink a glass of water. Water flushes out accumulated ama, and keeps the digestion smooth. Sipped throughout the day, water is an excellent healer.
Drink a glass of milk. At the end of a tiring day, when you cannot seem to close your eyes, don't be frustrated: drink a glass of warm milk. Milk should be organic and free of additives, and boiled with a pinch of cardamom before it is drunk in order to make it easier to digest. Drink it alone, away from meals, to avoid indigestion.
Sit down and close your eyes. Take a "just-for-me" break right now, right here. Disconnect from the outer world and tune in to your own self. Even if you do this for a minute, you will feel healed.
Sip herb tea. All-natural, caffeine-free teas prepared from nature's healing herbs are a perfect way to relax and recharge.
Massage your body. The skin thirsts for your touch and attention. When warm herbalized oil is rubbed gently all over the skin, your body and your mind feel pampered and relaxed.
Call a friend. People whose company makes us feel happy and loved are like medicine: they heal and restore us. Keeping in touch with such people nurtures our own hearts.
Breathe deep. Mindful breathing improves the flow of oxygen and other vital nutrients to the tiniest channels of the body, giving you an instant sense of well-being.
Go to bed early. Rise with the sun. This will be easy to do if you go to bed before 10:00 p.m. Waking up early gives you time to concentrate on your morning ablutions, and to prepare a good, nourishing breakfast. In addition, it gives you time to enjoy the early morning calm of nature.
Have a good breakfast. According to ayurveda, it is recommended that fruits be eaten first thing in the morning, 30 minutes before other breakfast items such as hot cereal.
Care for your hair. When your locks are limp and lifeless, your whole approach to life can turn pessimistic. Counter the problem by paying attention to what you put inside your body. Build small changes into your daily menu. Instead of popcorn, eat fresh fruit. Don't snack on candy — eat soaked blanched almonds instead.
Spice up your dinner plate. Turmeric, cumin, coriander, fennel, cardamom — these and other spices used in ayurvedic cooking add not only aroma and flavor, but also healing goodness to your food. Turmeric is an antiseptic, cumin aids digestion, coriander cleanses the system, fennel settles the stomach and cardamom cools the system.
