Peace of mind for 5 minutes is a luxury in today's time. We always make corporate success and personal contentment too huge an aim to achieve or too big a hurdle to cross. The coolest co-working place that has positive environment with inspiring people. The world's largest professional community is back with their #AwfisMoments, this time with the #Fitness Edition! Thoroughly enjoyed the #Yogalates, which gave me the necessary peace of mind which we have forgotten. #MyAwfis at Chemtex House Center, #Powai made me re-energised and totally charged to take up new challenges. How are you getting recharged to take up today's stress and pressure? Let me know in the comment below #AwfisCommunity #Yoga #FitnessDiaries
1. Avoid Gym, opt for Yoga:
Yoga comes with way too many benefits, not just physically but also mentally. Controlling our mind, body and soul can sometimes become difficult, but not when you’re practicing Yoga. Yoga can be practiced anywhere and anytime, few minutes a day can bring about physical and mental disciplines leading to a peaceful life. Today’s time is all about anxiety and stress. Yoga helps us combat the same.
2. Avoid cabs, take a walk:
Time is money in all sense, so much so that we have forgotten to do any physical activity. We are stuck to our systems and chairs the whole time. We are always pressed for time, that even for a 500-meter distance we would opt for a rickshaw or Cab, but won’t think about walking it out. Daily walking for short distances or climbing up and down stairs can help us in so many ways. Why not try?
3. Replace cold drinks with natural drinks:
Sugarcane juice and coconut water has several nutrient values, antioxidant properties. It fights against diabetes, prevents kidney stone and support good health. Still, when we look for options to drink we always opt for soda based artificial preservative drinks that does no good, but only harm us in ways we don’t even know. When you are thirsty next time, opt for water or natural drinks. Small change, big on benefits, isn’t it?
4. Stay close to nature, plant more trees:
You can’t control the deforestation that happens due to modernization and industrialization. But you can control the greenery around you. Plant trees, indulge in organic farming, go on a vacation near natural terrains are some of the ways in which we can stay close to nature. As being close to one helps reduce hypertension, respiratory disorders and cardiovascular illnesses leading to mental wellness.

5. Don’t be negative, start thinking positive:
We are constantly living in a society where people are nagging most of the time, we say more negative things than positive. We are constantly thinking about the odds leading to stress. Every other person is pessimist when it comes to politics, work, growth, relations and the list is non-ending. Thinking positive, opens the possibilities we hadn’t thought of. It makes us calm, happy person with enhanced health and longevity. Being positive is not just a good way to live, but it’s the only way to live.
Here are 5 Steps to a Healthy Life. I can go on and on, but for now, let’s stick to these simple and easy to make changes, which doesn’t involve too much effort, but dedicated commitment. Which one are you starting first with?
