Stay Healthy

Folks stay healthy. You cannot enjoy life if you are not healthy. No matter what you have, a private island, Sunny Leone and Katrina Kaif (Hrithik Roshan and Irfan Khan for ladies) as company, a few million dollars in the bank, a yacht of your own, no matter what. Even a small boil is enough to kill your happiness, forget big disease like diabetes or heart problem.
So what should be your priority in life? The following.
  1. Have a good night’s sleep. I try to get 10 hours. But everyone should at least get eight.
  2. Eat a proper breakfast. Not two toasts and a glass of milk. Proper meal, rice or roti or muri.
  3. Do not smoke, chew gutka, pan masala.
  4. Avoid drinking. At least minimize to no more than twice a month.
  5. Be active for at least half an hour every day. Walk, cycle, play with your daughter, anything. Try to break a sweat.
  6. Try not to eat a heavy meal at night, especially after 8 PM.
  7. Avoid sugar, packaged food and drink. Most packaged food contains only maida, oil and sugar, sometimes harmful chemicals and no nutrients whatsoever.
  8. Remember purpose of eating is to get stuffs that sustains our body, namely vitamin, protein and minerals. Calorie comes with them automatically. The amount of work we do, we need very little calorie. You don’t need to eat extra calories.
We are a pretty healthy family. We rarely fall sick and when we do, they are pretty minor. My guess is that we are plain lucky so far. But there is a little possibility that it is because we follow pretty much all of the above. What we do wrong:
  1. We do not drink milk at all.
  2. We hardly eat any fruits or vegetables.
I am trying to correct them slowly.
