Relax your Mind

“If you don’t control your mind, your mind will control you.” – Unknown. That is pretty easy to understand but it is often not practiced. If we overthink anything, those thoughts occupy our mind and then dictate our behaviour. Overtime, that can lead to an anxious state of mind.

If thoughts restrain us from doing the next best thing that we want to do, then we need to analyze our thoughts. We need to check if our thoughts are actually rational and if they are inhibitors to our confidence or growth. Fears of any kind, thinking about failures and any other irrational or negative thoughts will just lead to a negative mind, which doesn’t make us feel any better or healthier. We can make ourselves happy by not paying any attention to the thoughts that do not make us feel good. That is one easy way (if not the easiest) to control our mind. It is as simple as that but it just needs to be regularly practiced in order to relax the mind and stay positive. Always remember that if some thoughts do not make us feel good, then those are not healthy thoughts and we need to let go of them as soon as possible and move forward. – Yuvika

Work it Out

At some point, most of us have procrastinated for working out and there are times when we just need a nudge to get our body moving. I am going to share a very simple yet important reason to give you that motivational nudge.

Blood circulation is of course an important system of our body. It helps to distribute nutrients across our body. It is important to get active and turn up our heart rate with some exercises that work for us. Working out also helps to maintain our body muscles and after all, heart is a muscle as well. For a good heart health, we need to maintain a healthy workout routine. There are of course many other factors that contribute to our heart health and many other benefits of exercising but I just wanted to share a quick motivation to give you that push. Note: It is also important to maintain your body’s water balance as you workout. Drink enough water to prevent dehydration and maintain a water balance to avoid water intoxication. Have a healthy workout!

Please note that I am just sharing a motivational message and you may want to consider a consultation with your health care/fitness professional for the right workout for your body.

Cook, not Burn

QUICK COOKING TIP: Foods rich in water-soluble vitamins should be cooked gently and not exposed to high heat in order to retain their nutritional value.

It is important to cook food at an appropriate temperature. Foods rich in Vitamins B and C should be cooked gently as these water-soluble vitamins have a low stability to heat. Next time you are cooking with broccoli, green leafy vegetables, potatoes or other food items rich in water-soluble vitamins, make sure to cook at low to medium heat and for the appropriate amount of time in order to avoid the loss of their vitamin value.
