*Awed by a movie star* Damn, I wish I could look like that

Flat stomach, thigh gap, toned legs

6 pack abs, biceps, muscular shoulders

We all look at these gorgeous people in movies, magazines, social media and have this dire need to look like them. Aren’t we fooled? Nobody can look like that. Unless you starve yourselves. Yes, that is what they do. They lose weight temporarily for that particular scene of the movie. They’re on juice diets, fruit diets for a week or so. Instead of trying to attain bodies which are not possible, why not focus on staying healthy and fit? Just drink enough water and exercise daily.

Here’s a trick. All you need to do is take out 20 minutes thrice a week. First, do jumping jacks for 30 seconds (as fast as you can) then just walk at the same place for 1 minute 30 seconds. In 20 minutes, this routine can be done 10 times. Violà! Calories burnt. The logic behind this is simple. Animals, for instance, a tiger doesn’t do any exercise to remain fit. But when they hunt, they run at full speed for a couple of seconds. And the deer tries to run away as fast as it can from the tiger. So we don’t need to work out for hours to remain fit. Leave that to the body builders and fitness enthusiasts.

Which energy are you? Wind, fire or water?

Most of us prefer taking medicines, which provide instant relief. But some of those medicines have side effects in the long term. But we usually deal with it by “yeah we’ll see” or “haan yaar dekha jayega“. Similarly Ayurveda has pros and cons as well. It works slowly. But it makes the immune system very strong. The first image that comes to our minds when we speak of Ayurveda is different kinds of herbs. It is important to understand that an Ayurvedic lifestyle includes exercising and a healthy diet, not just taking herbal supplements. Don’t expect Tulsi to work if you eat pizza almost every other day in front of the television. Things don’t come that easy after all. It’s a balance of all the body energies. According to Ayurveda, every person has a different energy or dosha. It has a physical and an emotional aspect.

First, Vata, which is Sanskrit for wind, takes care of breathing and circulation. It enhances creativity and keeps the body active. This person is often stressed and fears to take a different path.

Second, Pitta, which is Sanskrit for fire, takes care of digestion and maintains the body temperature. This kind tends to be hard working and driven but can lose their temper easily.

Third, Kapha, which is Sanskrit for water, boosts the immune system and nourishes the organs. People dominant with this energy are supportive and loving but often insecure and lazy.

Have you found your dosha yet?
