The Joy of Being Healthy

 

 

Being Healthy is a way of life, a way of being with true joy. Being in the pink of one's health is something we all endear. Imagine to be able to go on a vacation in the best of your health, trek challenging trails with confidence, soak in nature’s beauty and feel exhilarated.  The invigorated feeling when you wade through cold streams and waterfalls without a second thought of catching a cold. On the other hand, being at your favourite concert, feeling the adrenaline rush and you end up not being able to keep up with the tempo! That is clearly not happening!

 

 

The Joy of being “Healthy” when it comes to eating

To be able to embark on various culinary journeys, without thinking twice whether you can stomach it.

How you would just love to go ahead and have your fill of chaats without worrying whether it is going to hit your throat or stomach. To swirl your tongue around that dollop of ice cream and let it melt away as you relish every swig of the creamy scoop. The joy to relish the Indian Mithai or the chocolate doughnut without worrying about your waistline. Or just eat the salad for the true love of it rather than crunching away every bite reminding you that it is good for your health.

You wouldn’t want to eat the sprouts thinking “is this necessary on my plate?” The texture and taste should be relished without a single thought of resentment.

 
 

 

A good way to indulge in meals

To begin with don’t deprive yourself of any kind of food as long as you don’t overindulge.

Consuming the wrong food and too much of it would cause indigestion, discomfort and accumulation of waste in your body to pile up layers of fat eventually.  Eating the right amount of the right type of food will keep you healthy. The light feeling post such a meal would keep you light on your feet all day.

What is important about having the last meal of the day?

It would not be a good idea to have an elaborate dinner just because you have the time and full intention to gorge on it. Sleep on a well satiated stomach but not an overstuffed stomach.

Make time for snacks during the day so that you are eating enough and wisely during your prime and well spaced out meals. Fruits, nuts, roasted puffed rice with peanuts, etc make great snacks.
