Do you ever wonder how your grandparents are so healthy at this stage too?
With the fast moving lives, we have created toxic patterns for ourselves, wherein we consume unhealthy food, do not exercise, are constantly surrounded by gadgets and sleep too less or too much. However, in the era with no gyms and limited facilities, what special did our grandparents do that they are still so healthy? Let’s dig deeper and understand how we can inculcate some of their positive habits into our lifestyle.
Monitor the impact of technology on your life
With the increase in technology and convenience based gadgets, we are becoming more dependent. Our parents had limited access to technology, and our grandparents, even more so. What we need today is digital detoxification. It’s important to stay away from technology for a while, and focus on real social interactions.
Sleep and stress management
Constant emails popping in your notifications makes it difficult to sleep stress free. Our grandparents, without any buzzing and vibrations slept peacefully. Technology and gadgets are important, but so is your health. Without adequate sleep it is difficult to repair and keep our system functioning well.
Focus on diet
Our grandparents used to make their own butter and ghee, and used to consume unadulterated food items. Moreover, they used to follow a sattvic diet and also grow vegetables and fruits in their backyards. Unlike today, organic farming was an integral part of their lives, and so was organic food.
The problem of overeating did not exist, as there were huge families and limited food. There was a pattern followed everyday, wherein snacking was limited and 3 nutritious meals were important. Moreover, due to lack of transportation facilities, walking and cycling were integrated in their routine naturally. Such patterns promoted a balanced life. The most important food related aspect was that breakfast was taken seriously, a high protein based breakfast was considered as any other meal.
Pollution affects health
Along with digital detoxification, we also need to detox the air we are surrounded by. Surrounded by nature, our elders were not the victims of heavy pollution. Fresh air improves the immune system and cleanses the lungs. This is the perfect time to visit any of the best wellness centres in India like Nimba Nature Cure, and improve your overall wellness amidst nature. Make sure the wellness centre is surrounded by greenery. Let’s go back in time and experience the goodness of serenity with nature, like our grandparents did.
A simple life is a happy life
With limited modern machines, life was easier and simpler. Our grandparents were not consumed in technological devices, and hence had time for their family, friends and other social gatherings. We must also take some time out for our families and for the people who matter.
