How to improve health

How to improve health

health covers physical and mental well being; it is a condition of absence of any illness that forces you to be either in bed or in hospital. It is absence of any unmanageable ailments. When we say, “unmanageable”, what is manageable? For one with hypertension, keeping blood pressure fairly under control by medication or otherwise is “manageable”. For one with diabetes, keeping the amount of sugar in blood by diet control or by medication is “manageable”.

From an unsatisfactory health condition or from a manageable health condition, if you want to know how to improve health, you should basically look into 4 aspects of your habits and lifestyle.

a) Your eating habits

b) Your exercising habits

c) Your lifestyle and

d) Your spiritual bend of mind

Let us look into each of the above in detail:

a) Your eating habits

Are you a heavy eater or a poor eater? Are you a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian? Are you the one who succumbs to the demands of the tongue or your stomach? Are you a timely eater or one who gobble up things as and when convenient without looking at the clock? Are you a disciplined eater who picks and chooses or one who can lay hands on anything edible?

To improve health through food, nothing can be achieved without self-discipline and a working knowledge about what is good nutrition and what is a balanced A balanced food is something which contains the basic and essential mix of carbohydrates, protein, fat, minerals, vitamins and roughage in right proportions. If you are ignorant on this, get that knowledge first. This article will become too large if you want to learn about which-contains-what here.

Aside the above, here are some generic guidelines for good eating habits:

1) Do not skip breakfast. A sumptuous breakfast with right mix of nutrients goes a long way in giving a good energy for the whole day, without causing you worry about obesity.

2) Never eat to your stomach’s full. Fill you stomach only to 50 to 65 percent of its full capacity at any meal time. The rest of the space is for drinking water and to allow gases of digestion to escape.

3) Take adequate water and fluids.

4) Do not succumb to munching something in between meal times.

5) Switch over to vegetarianism if you can really manage it. Indian saints are very emphatic that vegetarianism is the best not only for good health, but also for one’s spiritual upliftment. Spiritual upliftment contributes indirectly to good health – both physical and mental.

6) Avoid or minimize eating out in hotels, restaurants and fast food joints and maximize eating home made food.

7) If you are a non-vegetarian, do not experiment with eating any un-familiar or exotic meat products.

8) Know the food restrictions applicable to your health condition (example diabetes) and never yield to temptations.

9) If you over-eat at one meal time, reduce your intake in the next meal time.

10) Do not eat without feeling hungry.

11) Leave your stomach empty at least at one dinner time in every week. If you are not the type who cannot skip a meal totally, take some fruits and drink a glass of milk instead.

12) Avoid or drastically reduce taking alcoholic drinks.

13) Discontinue drinking any form of aerated soft drinks.

b) Your exercising habits

1) Never get tempted to do vigorous exercises that are popular and currently fads, if they are not suited to your body type and your inherent stamina. For example, jogging is not for moderately or heavily obese people.

2) Never succumb to the laziness of not doing any exercise at all.

3) Regular and brisk walking is by far the best, most effective and least complicated form of exercise suited to people of both sex, of all ages and body shapes.

4) Utilize every opportunity to get exercise in your normal daily activities. Walk up the stairs without waiting for the lift if it’s two to four floors and if you can walk up that much without any strain. Take a bicycle to the nearby market instead of using your car.

5) If your health conditions do not permit doing brisk physical exercises, learn yoga under a trained guru and practice such of those yogasanas that can suit your age, sex, body condition and health status.

c) Your lifestyle

1) Socialize less. Party less. Eat out less. Avoid mingling with opposite sex.

2) Travel less.

3) Stretch yourself less – whether it is overstaying at the office, or giving company to your friends or volunteering help to others unasked.

4) If you fly in air, switch over to running on the ground. If you run, switch over to walking. Consciously slow down. Reduce your ambitions. Reduce your hankering behind wealth, power, status, sex and any ill conceived notions about “success” in life that makes you restless.

d) Your spirituality

1) Inquire within yourself: ” What is the meaning of this life?”

2) Review your past and present as a third person objectively and honestly try to question your past actions, beliefs, convictions etc and try to get answers on how much things were within your control and how much they were under the inscrutable influence of a force much above you (God).

3) If you are getting an inkling that your poor health (both physical and mental) is attributable to your lack of spirituality or a lack of faith in a higher force, think of ways to get solutions to your basic attitude problems. Read books on spirituality. Seek the help of a true spiritual master ( a Guru) who can guide you to “higher things” in life.
