Where are we lacking in our journey to health?
Wellbeing is our birthright. But for a decade now, with the advent of disposable luxury-income and the internet, we have allowed ourselves to get over-consumed by our environment. on the other hand ‘slogging’ at work is now common vocabulary. Life has become a constant race where nobody is winning (except FMCGs and Media houses, of course) and now everybody is realising that. We are finally asking ourselves, What mistake did I make? This is exactly what i dreamt of when i was 21. Big car, big house, beautiful spouse, passionate job, extravagant income. What is missing in my life? Even inside these riches, the soul is unhappy, dissatisfied, hollowed by this high powered life.
This type of approach in life has probably led to this downfall. We stopped watching the rain drops hitting the surface of our windows, we stopped making shadows arts on the wall, we stopped taking a step back and inhaling the present moment. Amidst all of this, we stopped living, didn’t we? And mind you, this downfall is not just manifesting as back pain or migraine, it is now minutely interacting with and affecting our sleeping pattern, our thinking pattern, our relationships, our emotional state, and even our consciousness (if anything of that still remains). What are we really earning a ‘living’ for? To increase our bank balance? Is that what our life is made up of? BANK BALANCE?!
What can we do to make our body and mind healthy?
If you really want to come out of this weird type of living, you will need to make some fundamental ‘lifestyle’ modifications in the way you see or do things. If you are persistent and dedicated in improving your living, those modifications that you make will slowly and steadily creep into all aspects of life and bring about a positive holistic change in your being. It is challenging, and you will lose hope on the way, but remember your purpose – you wish to wake up and experience the beauty of this life without any limitations in your body or mind which could be disturbing your presence there as the sun shines on you. Practically speaking, you’d want relief from all your pains and troubles and want to live comfortably without any physical restrictions.
