Fit life

Living is an art. It doesn’t come easily to everyone. The mankind has been struggling since the very beginning. There were many enlightened who tried to teach the mankind how to live and few are still teaching us. Only a few are able to weave their lives beautifully while many others struggle hard to make anything out of it or even just live it, live it happily. We are burdened with the obligations which have come to us as a legacy and few which we have imposed on ourselves. Studying, scoring good marks, getting best job and possessing all the materialistic are some of the main ones to mention. ‘Are these all a must to live?’, my unhappy mind asks me many a times. Then says my inner voice, ‘Not necessarily. They are only required to make our lives better’. We make our lives bitter when we don’t get certain things we desire which we think are necessary to make life better. Life can still be good if not better . So happiness comes from within, from nowhere else. So though not easier I would try to be happy listening to that feeble inner voice that echoes those positive thoughts. Life is all about staying happy. It let’s us live life to the fullest which otherwise would be incomplete as we would take part in everything around passively . I believe, staying active is the other side of being happy. A depressed, unhappy mind would never be active. Sometimes unhappiness fills the belly and in some extreme divulgence is seen, either of which cut short the lifespan by making us weak devoid of nutrients or making us obese and unhealthy. Neither of these are good for the heart. So though not easier I would try to be happy always listening to that feeble inner voice. Though being happy, staying active and eating better are interrelated. This is only one side of the story. The happier me can’t eat however I want. I need to eat the right food in right proportions. I include green leafy vegetables and salads often in my lunch and dinner. But my taste buds crave for those fried snacks and very often I end up in the guilt pleasure of savoring them in large quantities to satiate myself. This is something inevitable, I can’t avoid the fried stuff completely. So I would switch to better oil like Saffolalife which is healthier for the heart. I am an active person but I have a very bad habit of going to bed late night and getting up late in the morning. On those days, when I get up earlier, I’m more fresh and active throughout. So now, I think I need to take this small step of inculcating this good habit.
