Today everyone is troubled with some kind of weakness or disease and are finding ways to avoid it. As Wayne Fields said in his nursery rhyme, “the best six doctors anywhere and no one can deny it, are sunshine, water, rest, and air, exercise and diet. While these six will gladly you attend, if only you are willing, your mind they’ll ease, your will they’ll mend, and charge you not a shilling”. There is a lot of truth to the above quote. Let’s break it down further.
Sun’s rays are one among these 6 doctors. This provides us with vitamin D which strengthens our bones and also protects us from various kind of diseases. Apart from this, its a major source of energy for our body. Therefore, it is very important to stay under the rays of the rising sun for at least 20 minutes.
For those of us fortunate enough to have a continuous supply of good drinking water on tap. We should definitely make the most of it. Mineral water is fine . But either way drinking a good 2 or so litres of water a day helps you stay hydrated, clears out toxins, keeps energy levels up and generally keeps your insides in top shape.
Make sleep a priority, not a luxury. While get a minimum 7-8.5 hours of sleep per night.It is really important to give your body enough sleep after a day’s run because sleep gives rest to all parts of our body.
Deep breathing has now been confirmed to improve mood and reduce stress. It actually reduces objective measures of stress such as elevated heart rate and cortisol (stress hormone) levels in the body.
Daily exercise keeps you active and fresh, which keeps you away from all the diseases. While regular exercise increases metabolism and burns calories faster, which leads to weight loss. Apart from this, exercise helps to slow down the pace of your growing age and helps you stay and look young.
Clean eating is essential for optimal health and wellness. Countless chronic diseases breed from the poor food habits and processed foods that are being consumed. While eating organic isn’t just a little more expensive, it has major benefits to it.
