Read on to know five easy steps to power your body truly!
Power with yoga
Yoga is the only form of exercise which multidimensionally strengthens the body, increases mindfulness, makes breathing better, along with resulting in fitter & toned body. If yoga is practiced daily for 30 - 45 mins and additionally complemented with brisk walking, one doesn’t need a monthly subscription of gyms and work out monotonously with machines. Fit body is bound to surface and get noticed!
Best powerful yoga exercises to be learned and then performed under supervision are Surya namaskar (sun salutation pose), Ardha chandrasana (half-moon pose) and bhujangasana (cobra-pose). If you are a beginner, don’t try out the above at one shot. Try yoga for beginners first to prepare & strengthen your body, and then slowly graduate to all the power yoga forms. Also, pranayamas like kapalbhati & Anulom-vilom really help in refreshing your mind along with promoting good respiratory system with respect to bronchial & nasal pathways.
Power with supplements
In our fast-paced modern life, it is very easy to get confused between health & nutrition. Despite eating the best kind of foods, exercising, along with adequate sleep, one may feel low, lethargic and experience tiredness all day long. For this, body’s inability to properly absorb & store vitamins and minerals from food directly could be one of the culprits.
Hence, based on good science suggestions and health reports, if daily requirements of vital vitamins & essential minerals remain unfulfilled due to certain conditions then it is best to supply the above with an expert supplement of your choice.
Good supplements are loaded with more than 15 important vitamins, 9 essential minerals and the powerful herbs such as “Ginseng” which helps majorly in replenishing all the lost nutrients, regulating all bodily processes and reducing biological oxidation (Anti-ageing).
Power with good sleep
Researchers have substantial evidence that “adequate sound sleep” that comprises of 7-8 hours of sleep per day is very good for the mind & body. It not only powers your mind but also gives a relaxing effect to the body.
People having trouble sleeping, must consider sleep inducing lights, music, aromas, concoctions and exercises to ensure that minimum 6 hours of sleep is achieved daily.
Power with water
There is direct co-relation between water intake, weight loss & good skin. 3 - 4 liters of water intake daily (which also includes juices from vegetables & fruits) actually keeps all the organs healthy and helps in flushing out toxins. When all the organs function properly, the body is bound to remain active and powerful.
Point to be noted, adults should not exceed 5 liters per day until and unless body requires that excess water. This is because drinking huge amount of water, that too at one go, if not required by the body, exerts unnecessary pressure in the kidneys which may lead to damage. Additionally, avoid heavy night-time water intake as it will lead to disturbed sleep patterns.
Power with nuts & super foods
Super foods & nuts may look only handful, but they are too powerful. They not only provide instant energy and counter fatigue, but they also enrich you with essential oils, fibers, vitamins & minerals.
Almonds, cashewnuts, pecans, peanuts, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts and their judicious mixtures (handful at least once a day) are excellent sources of power, energy, fiber and glow.
Takeaway note -
A powerful personality is a combination of a powerful mind & body. And who doesn’t wish to be powerful and disease free? Hence, don’t rush to expensive gym memberships to impress someone, instead power your own self with yoga, superfoods, water, good sleep and not to forget daily supplements to ensure, the force always be with you!
