Legs Up The Wall

I used to do this a lot when I was a kid, but I didn’t know that this simple pose has health benefits. This posture is one of the most nourishing and calming poses you can try. It doesn’t just relieve tired leg muscles but calms your mind too. This posture is truly a relaxing one.

Make Sunday Your Day

At least once a year is good to go somewhere you have never been before. Sometimes this “somewhere” turns out to be your own country. I realized I haven’t seen much of it. Sometimes, the best adventures are waiting just around the corner.

Go someplace you’ve never been before. It doesn’t have to be on the other side of the world or an exotic place- just somewhere new. Experience new places, try new things and make beautiful memories.

Be Gentle With Yourself

“When we take the time to re-connect with ourselves, replace our fears with trust, and learn to let go of the things we cannot control, this is taking care. When we discover our interior barriers and find courage to dissolve them, this is taking care.”

Commit to an hour a day for yourself or at least during the weekend. This can be a bubble bath, a walk, sauna, hobby that makes you feel creative and alive, a delicious meal, a girls night out. It doesn’t matter what it is as longs as it is for you. Taking care of your physical, menatal and emotional well-being is important because it ensures a happier and healthier life.

“Aim to be comfortable with yourself. People tend to be happier when they’re not conforming to some ideal or someone else’s expectations.”

Physical Activity is Powerful Medicine

The best medicines are those that prevent disease and improve quality of life and your daily well-being. You may not think of physical activity as medicine, but in fact, it is powerful medicine when performed daily! “We do not stop exercising because we grow old. We grow old because we stop exercising or moving.” Dr. Kenneth Cooper – The Father of Aerobics, Cooper Institute.

The One Who Tries, Never Fails

“You cannot take your boat across the sea

If you are afraid of the waves,

The one who tries

Never fails.

The tiny ant carries a small grain in its mouth,

Climbs up on the wall, slips and falls a hundred times,

The determination in the mind fills your body with courage,

Then climbing up and falling down does not hurt,

Ultimately, its (the ant’s) efforts do not go waste,

The one who tries

Never fails.

The diver dives into the water of the sea,

He returns empty handed a number of times,

Not easy it is to find a pearl in the deep waters,

But this in turn doubles his enthusiasm,

His hands are not empty every time,

The one who tries

Never fails.

Failure is a challenge, accept it,

Recognise your shortcomings, rectify them.

Till you are successful, shun rest and sleep,

Never run away from the battlefield of hard work,

You cannot get praise without working for it,

The one who tries

Never fails.”

– Harivansh Rai Bacchan

One Day at a Time

One pound at a time, one step at a time, one goal at a time. Believe in the person you want to become. Do your best, try to make choices that are healty, that make you feel good, choices that will lead you to success. Never give up!
Life is nothing but a series of good/bad choices, and the choices you make will define who you are, whether or not you achieve your desired goal and what you become.

Here’s To Your Success!

There’s a Right Time for Everything

Remember, it is okay to go through life at your own pace as long as you’re moving forward. Life is not just about working hard, it’s more about working smart, never giving up, striving to become better than you were yesterday and to achieve as much as possible.
It’s important to move at your own pace, instead of pressuring yourself into something you’re not ready for or capable of yet. Just do what you love to do, with passion, at your own pace, and you’ll end up where you’re heading.

Yes, it’s important to move forward in life but it’s also crucial to take time to relax, take your mind off things and do something for nothing’s sake.

Weight Loss Humor

I follow my heart and it led me to the fridge.
If we’re not meant to have midnight snacks, why is there a light in the fridge?
