  • After 30 you have to understand your body goes into the slow phase. So you have to watch out your thoughts, health and routine. You have to make sure that you are spending the time focusing on the health. You have to also watch out with the lethargy and avoid those laid back negative thoughts. Life needs to be kept as active as you keep in the 20s. Meditation and yoga can make a lot of difference in mental health. This has to be practiced as soon as possible and not after reaching mid age.

    Ill habits such as alcohol, smoking and any form of intoxication should be avoided. The reason being you have to treat yourself the way you want to be taken care of during old age. If you treat yourself roughly in youth, then it will not end up good in the old age.

    So to sum up the things to be done -

    1. Exercise or daily walk
    2. Meditation
    3. No junk food.
    4. No intoxication habits (alcohol, smoking and drugs)
    5. Positive thinking

    This should help keep your mind and body in better condition.

  • Very good suggestions made by our knowledgeable members. Specially by Sailaja who has given a crisp and complete capsule to us to follow.
    I will like to say that keeping a good health is a challenge at every age and it becomes more and more challenging when one grows older and older.
    There is no easy solution to good health. Medical Science has done miracles in the area of disease curing and health but it has long way to go before it can reach a commanding position.
    Though researchers are toiling day and night to find out newer solutions but it is still not very clear what is the relation between good habits, good lifestyle and positive thinking at one side and disease or ailment at other.
    This is debatable because there are innumerable cases where things are not in line with our life style. When a disease spreads in epidemic proportion, it does not distinguish between persons as per their habits. So the connection is not very clear as per the knowledge of humans at this juncture.
    Certainly having a positive thinking is always an edge on negative thinking but the statistics of persons whose health has deteriorated versus their life style is also to be seen with an open eye.

    Knowledge is power.
