Food, According to Science, Indian food is healthy and balanced. Eating healthy has many positive benefits to both your body and mind.

The beauty of yoga is that everybody can do it. Whether you are young or old, overweight or fit, yoga has the power to calm the mind and strengthen the body. Don’t be misguided by yoga terminology, fancy yoga studios, and complicated poses. Yoga is for all.
Sound Sleep, Get up early in the morning Sleep is one of the most primitive and basic requirements of life. Numerous studies and long-drawn research have simplified some aspects of its function and nature, though a lot of it yet remains elusive. The body rests during sleep and ‘restores’ its energy and functions. The energy consumption in various organs is minimal and the brain conserves its nerve cells and connections to be active again when awake. Adequate quantity and quality of sleep determine our daily schedule, activity levels, attention, memory, learning, and even our lifespan. Get Up early in the morning before Sunrise, our body gets energy. Try to sleep early before 10 p.m. at the night.
Healing and Yoga, Practicing yoga poses improve muscle strength, flexibility, and range of motion, all very important for the healing and prevention of back pain and musculoskeletal diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis. Yoga reduces stress and heals our mind and body. These two main benefits of yoga are linked and are the main factors in how yoga is a powerful therapy for healing the physical body.
Meditate every morning and every evening for 15-30 minutes. It is best to meditate before you eat. Try to meditate in a quiet place but if you do not have a quiet place to meditate that is okay. Noise is not a barrier to meditating.
Sit quietly, close your eyes, and do nothing for a minute or so. Thoughts will come and that is okay. It is natural to have thoughts during meditation. After a minute or so, in the same natural way that thoughts come, and without moving your tongue or lips, quietly inside start saying your mantra. Slowly repeat your mantra until you are done meditating. When thoughts come, gently return to saying your mantra. When you finish meditating, lay down and rest for 4-5 minutes.
