Add on fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy and whole grains while refraining alcohol, processed food, added sugars and refined grains. Also, watch out for your calcium, vitamin C and D.

The benefits you can reap from exercising regularly are endless.  If you are someone who always has an excuse not to work out, remember, exercise is movement and inactivity to the human body is like rust to iron. Do some common chores like gardening, playing sports, cleaning or walking while talking on your phone at least. It can also involve social activities. Take a dance class, go trekking or do something fun with your friends and family.  Regular exercising can do wonders for your health. It increases your blood flow, improves your mood, reduces stress, controls weight and gives you a better quality of sleep while fighting diseases and health conditions.

How to start your regular exercising:

Enrol yourself in a yoga session or a dance class. Our teachers at skillagogo offer various classes you can choose from.

Definitely, at par with eating right and exercising, a good sleep is essential for a good life. Proper sleeping patterns are linked with a better immune system and fewer chances of heart diseases and depression. A good quality sleep also improves mood, concentration, athletic performance and thus increases productivity to a multi-fold. Poor sleep can hinder weight, expose you to greater risk of diseases and also impact your emotions and social interactions negatively since you tend to get irritated and lack focused judgment. You need to sleep right in order to wake up right.

How to get good quality sleep:

Stick to a sleep routine of going to bed at the same time and also waking up at the same time of the day even on weekends. Over what you sleep on is also important. Choose pillows and mattresses that are comfortable. 

Positive Thinking

What worth is doing everything else right when in the end your mind is in a negative place? Thinking positive changes everything to better. All it takes is one positive thought to turn around a life crisis. Thinking positive gives you the motivation and push to make your life better and work for it no matter what may come your way. You cannot change how you think overnight so take your time but start today itself. Use your mind to lean on to the brighter side of things, ignore what people think foul about you and don’t give up. Positive thoughts are the only way to success and a healthy life and what good will the journey be if you don’t feel good about it?

How to develop positive thinking:

A happy mind paves the way for positive thoughts. Take inspirations from your motivational and happening shows, movies or books. Dig deeper through inspirational videos from Tedtalks, Bigthink, Talks at Google, etc.
