  1. I guess , No: 2 & No: 8 hold immense importance. As youngsters , While in Boarding School we were counselled seriously , based on scientific studies that show that a lack of sleep causes many significant changes in the body and increases your risk for serious health concerns such as obesity, disease due to weak immunity. Further , going on to explain that sleep is an important function for many reasons – our brain signals your body to release hormones and compounds that help: a) decrease risk for any adverse health conditions , b) manage your hunger levels, c) maintain your immune system & IMPORTANTLY c) retain memory.

    1. Quite true about ‘ Reading ‘. In fact, Sachin Tendulkar in his book titled ‘ Playing it my way.’ makes a mention about reading being a part of his fitness MANTRA, that Reading doesn’t just improve your knowledge, it can help fight depression, make you more confident and empathetic. It can also encourage positive thinking and better decision making. He goes on to mention that daily reading for pleasure helped him prevent conditions such as stress.

    1. You are quite right , No: 7 should top the list of priority’s. in fact you will be delighted to note – Laughter Yoga is a unique form of exercise regime that is sweeping the world, with proven benefits for health and well-being. First introduced in Mumbai India in 1995 by a medical doctor, Dr Madan Kataria and his wife Madhuri who was a yoga teacher, Laughter Yoga has spread to more than 70 countries in the world. There are now more than 6,000 Laughter Clubs globally, with the overall aim of spreading joy and happiness towards World Peace.

      The science behind Laughter Yoga is that the body cannot differentiate between real laughter and fake or simulated laughter. Therefore, the holistic benefits to Body, Mind and Spirit are the same whether laughter is fake or real.

      Laughter Yoga combines yogic breathing (Pranayama) with laughter exercises. In Yogic philosophy, it is all about the power of the breath as the Life Energy Force (prana).

      1. According to me no. 1,4 and 8 are most important.
        1.) Exercise keep our body fit and we feel light and active. For good life style fit body is equally important.
        2.)Mental and stretch breaks play an essential part in our busy schedule. If we work continuously, the result will not be productive. Little but important breaks between any work gives relaxation to our mind.
        3.) Eight hours of sound and tidy sleep gives someone a new start. Sleeping on time is one of the good habit and it helps us in maintaining good lifestyle .

    2. According to me point no.1 is very important because hour of exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. A healthy lifestyle is one which helps to keep and improve your health and well-being. There are many different things that you can do to live a healthy lifestyle, such as eating healthy, being physically active, maintaining a healthy weigh, and managing your stress. These habits improve your overall well-being and make you feel good.

  4. According to me 1. as a gym trainer, proudly providing you that it’s no secret that moving more helps you to be fitter and healthier. As little as 30 minutes exercise can boost your general health and well-being. It also adds six years of your life. When you go out in a park or gym for exercise, you meet health conscious people there that forces you to be more serious for your health. Exercise also lowers mental stress and helps you to take sound sleep. It also maintains the water level of your body as you need much consumption of water during exercise. All other point of good and healthy lifestyle are revolving around this.

  6. Feeling good about yourself and taking care of your health are important for your self-esteem and self image . And if we choose from these points i beleive that point no 1 and 6 is helpfull to live healthy life style as the true purpose of meditation is to let go of your constant stream of thoughts that you go through daily like your fears, desires, anxieties, etc., and experience stillness so that you can have glimpse of your soul. When you regularly meditate you will find that it will become easier to settle into that stillness, and you will find that you are able to integrate the calm from your meditation into your daily life and physical fitness is not the sole basis of being healthy; being healthy means being mentally and emotionally fit. Being healthy should be part of your overall lifestyle.

    1. Very true about No: 6, Sir. You’ll be pleased to know that all major airlines( specially British Airways ) have a fixed 20 minutes daily routine of Meditation for their cabin crew before they board their flights – objective is that meditation is great for reducing stress and improving concentration, but it’s even more impressive to see what it can do for our health as we age. Airline Cabin crew behavior has shown that regular meditation can significantly IMPROVE ATTENTION, memory, VERBAL FLUENCY and helps in better reasoning.The 20 minutes a day, result in multiple physiologic changes that benefit our health from head-to-toe.

  8. A healthy lifestyle is the foundation of a good life. While it does not take much to achieve this lifestyle many people these days are unable to follow it owing to several reasons such as professional commitments, lack of determination and personal issues. It takes a good amount of determination to lead a healthy lifestyle these days. With so many tasks to accomplish during the day, our health often takes a backseat. It is important to realize the need to follow a healthy lifestyle and understand the ways in which it can be achieved.

    It is time people should understand that our health is of utmost importance and it is only when we are healthy would we be able to work efficiently on other aspects of our lives. Developing healthy habits requires just a few changes in the daily routine.According to me, all mentioned points are equally important.”Health is Wealth”. It is indeed but seems like our generation has forgotten it. It is time to slow down and take a look at the way you are living and treating your body. You may make more money, win friends and afford the luxuries of life with the lifestyle you are following but you are shortening your life span. Take charge of your life and switch to healthy habits while there is still time.

  9. Experts define goal setting as the act of selecting a target or objective you wish to achieve. Fair enough. That definition makes sense, but I think there is a much more useful way to think about setting goals. The real challenge is not determining if you want the result, but if you are willing to accept the sacrifices required to achieve your goal.

    1. Quite right about ‘Stretching’. In fact every sports enthusiast considers this an extremely important practice to add to heir daily routine to be on their way to better health. I think it’s important that even if you are not planning on exercising vigorously, it is still important to stretch in order to receive multiple benefits for your body and your mind.

      Many of us carry stress in our muscles. When feeling overwhelmed, muscles tighten acting as a defensive strategy. The more we stretch, the less tense muscles will be. Therefore, Stretching is indeed a very effective form of stress management.

    No, our lifestyle is as such that all these cannot be followed regularly. But at least we can try incorporating them in our daily routine. So, i feel point 1,2,3,5,7,8,9 are of great importance. They will sum up all the things required to have a better life altogether. But most important for me to relax is to have mental and stretch breaks in which minutes of laughter can be included wherein a person rejuvenates to get back to work more effectively. Monotony makes a person dull and unproductive.

  25. According to me, points 1,2, 7 ,8 hold immense importance.When setting up a routine, it can be easy to forget the most important activity – resting. Humans simply aren’t built for working all day, every day without a break. If you don’t consider this in your routine, there is a danger that you will lose energy and enthusiasm all together and burn out, thereby killing your productivity altogether. This can be mitigated by making sure to making sure you get some rest.
    One way to do this is by picking a reasonable time to stop working, another is to take a quick nap, others recommend meditation. It all depends on your preference.

We know of an age old saying, ” Laughter is the best Medicine ” In fact, specialist Doctors have confirmed that Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even relieve pain.

    I think 1 & 2 points are most important.
    1. Water
    You can save money and improve your health by drinking water throughout the day. The natural liquid offers the benefits of hydration, nourishment, and improved well-being. Water can cleanse toxins from the body, improve brain function, energize muscles, control weight gain, and balance body temperature and fluids.
    2. Exercise
    Exercise is a great way to stimulate your health and studies have shown that physical activity helps to improve longevity and overall health. Try to exercise up to three times a week. Pick a convenient time schedule out time. You can exercise for 30 minutes the morning to get energized for your day.

    1. Sure, laughing makes us feel good both emotionally and physically—but its benefits go deeper than that. Studies suggest that a sense of humor is linked to a better quality of life and sense of well-being. Laughter is one of the most direct ways to activate a release of endorphins, a process that allays symptoms of depression and anxiety.

      Cultivating an ability to laugh in the face of difficult situations can breed happiness and a capacity to cope during times of high stress.

Fitness freaks and coaches might say things like one can always take out 1 to 2 hours for physical work but majority fails to the attempt.
