“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live in”
“If you don’t make time for exercise, you’ll probably have to make time for illness.”
Shah Expresses, Fitness and holistic health has become a growing area of focus for many.
Health and wellness have been at the forefront this year due to the physical health risks around COVID-19 and the mental health risks around being in quarantine and isolated for so long. Life has been far from normal, and this pandemic has impacted how people work, attend school, shop, run errands, socialize, tend to their families and communities, and more.
It has become imperative for people to pay attention to their physical and mental health to survive the current situation and thrive in the future. Getting regular exercise and steps, cooking and eating nutritious foods, managing stress through practicing mindfulness, prioritizing sleep and focusing on work-life balance are critical holistic health tools to protect against burnout and potential medical issues. This area of focus will only continue to increase in importance in 2021 and beyond.
Now, when the world will start to open slowly, it’s already opening up, but when it will all relax and normalise, next year, travelling for people will be inevitable. Travelling for work, business, meetings, events, shows, and leisure.
So, the crux now is what is to be done, to keep healthy -for travellers and commuters.
Famed Astro-Strategist cum Adviser, Hirav Shah Pens Down 6 Points Below, Pertaining To That.
1.Drink enough water
This one is a given. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and more if the weather is very hot or if you are having a particularly demanding day. This will also prevent dehydration and bloating on the plane although you may have to visit the restroom more often (but that’s a small price to pay in the larger scheme of things).
2. Avoid packaged food
It’s tempting to opt for shortcuts when you have a lot of travel to undertake. But resist it by carrying healthy snacks (fruits, nuts, etc.) with you. While it is convenient, packaged food contains too many artificial flavours and preservatives to be of much use. If you make eating that a habit, expect your health to deteriorate sooner than later and then you will have to work on fixing that instead. Why should you let things come to such a sorry pass in the first place?
Wherever you go, eat fresh food, even if it is nothing fancy. In fact, fancy and yummy should not be your criteria when looking for what to eat. Here are the points to note when you are selecting your meals and snacks: a)Should be fresh b)Should be easily available c) Your body should thank you for it
That’s it. Save your energy (which you tend to use up a lot during traveling and handling life’s many challenges) on something better than wondering about what to eat next.
3. Keep your fibre consumption high
Fibre is easy to digest, keeps your system on track, and is an important part of a healthy diet. Luckily, in India, food is often high in fibre. So make sure you don’t swap your roti for white bread or your poha for a morning sandwich or burger or puri-sabji . Fruits are also great since they fill you up and happen to be healthy snacks. Unless you are a diabetic or on a strict diet, have at least two a day.
4. Stock up on antioxidants, protein and Vitamin B supplements
Protein and Antioxidants also enable your body to combat free radicals and reverse the damage caused by daily wear and tear. Remember the acronym ACE. That’s vitamins A, C, and E for you. All of which are important for your overall immunity, as well as that glow on your skin. Vitamin B supplements are also helpful in boosting your immunity.
5. Breathe deeply
Traveling frequently in closed cabins and breathing in dry and stale air can snuff the glow out of your face, leaving your skin dehydrated as well. Deep breathing exercises, especially pranayama, can deal with this problem. For best results, make this a morning routine, regardless of the day of the week or whether you are traveling or not.
6. Sleep, sleep, and sleep
Nothing revives your energy level like good sleep. And the more you travel, the more you need to sleep well. If getting a full 8-hour sleep every night is eluding you, make it a habit to catch a few winks whenever you can. Mediation will also help as it improves the quality of sleep.
Conclusion: Celebrated Business Consultant and Astro-Guru Concludes, Hirav Shah Opines,
“Travel will become expensive once we have a vaccine and life rebounds again.
If you see a great deal, as long as you take the necessary precautions to protect yourself in the event of interruption or cancellation, it’s not a bad idea to book now, especially if you can change or cancel without penalty.
In a nutshell, the best deals to consider are those for the second half of 2021 and beyond, when travel and prices are expected to pick up. For some, travel planning is a psychological lifeline”
So naturally, many are in a dilemmatic state now, so as to foree the future to strategize their travel plans.
“Hence, taking a second opinion from an expert, in this case is the wisest thing to do”, says Shah.
“Only Astro Strategic Consultation is the Need Of The Hour” -Concludes Hirav Shah.
