Your Wellness Concept in 2015


Wellness Programme:

In between getting up from the bed and returning to bed at night, each of us performs different types of actions to earn and maintain our livelihood. In a quest to achieve all the happiness of life, we tend to ignore basic needs of our body and work beyond our strength. Changed lifestyle, excess of working hours, job stress, irregular food habits etc add to our worries making us prone to physical and mental illness. Though a change in working hours and work pressure is hardly possible, to avoid being ill change in our food habits and also maintaining a lifestyle that will suit our own health will do wonders in keeping us fit and energetic and will also increase our immunity against disease.

Here are some guidelines to be followed daily by all individuals as a part of wellness regimen:

During morning period:

Get up early at least one hour before sunrise. Feeling of freshness and energetic after awakening is a good indicator of adequate sleep. Try and make it a habit of getting early to bed in night and getting up early in the morning.
Go to toilet immediately after getting up in morning. Habit of clearing bowels daily early morning is very useful for maintaining health and every person should aim the same. Avoid suppression of natural urges of urine, stools etc. Also avoid straining at stools.
Brush your teeth with herbal stick bitter and astringent in taste like neem etc. It would help in cleansing mouth and also improve mouth taste. Instead of using commercially available toothpaste, which is sweet in taste, herbal powder or stick could be used for more effective mouth cleansing and will also improve dental care. Wash the mouth thoroughly with water after brushing the teeth and drink a glass of water preferably kept in a clean copper vessel. Also brushing the teeth and washing mouth after meals is important.
Also scrap the tongue with a tongue cleaner after washing the mouth.
Person suffering from vomiting, asthma, cardiac disease, facial paralysis etc should not use herbal stick bitter in taste.
Then, sleeping on a bed with a head-low position put 4-5 drops of “ANU OIL” in both nostrils and inhale deeply. These medicated nasal drops are helpful in the increasing immune power of upper respiratory tract. It provides nourishment to vital organs of head, increasing power of vision, give strength to hair roots and hair follicles and also improve quality of voice. For daily use, use of medicated ghee is also useful and physician’s advice is recommendable.
After nasal drops, use of gargling and herbal smoke is beneficial as mucous may be secreted in excess quantity due to stimulant action of nasal drops. Use of lukewarm water is useful for gargling.
Mouthful of sesame oil carried out for 2-5 min daily will help to improve dental care and will provide strength to gums and teeth.
Massage: Full body oil massage is must to reduce daily wear and tear of body. With lack of leisure time available, at least oil should be applied daily over head, ears and feet to nourish them.
After oil massage, light physical exercise, yoga etc should be done depending on individual capacity. Regular exercise is must for healthy life. Strenuous exercise should be avoided. After exercise, deep massages over body help in relaxation.
Then dry herbal powder like that of triphala, sandalwood etc should be applied all over the body before bath.
Bath: As per climatic conditions hot or cold water could be used for bath. Avoid pouring hot water over head and use of soap is not recommended as it contains chemicals and increase dryness of skin.
Always use fresh and clean clothes suitable to climatic conditions.
Students should make use of early morning period for their studies as concentration power is high and study could be easily remembered.
Light breakfast, with cup of tea or coffee or a glass of milk or some fruits is advisable before going to work as per individual liking.

Celebrate the New Year with Tips for a Lifelong Weight Loss Transformation from the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center

Aurora, Colo. (PRWEB) January 01, 2015

This year, resolve to make those weight loss resolutions stick. Holly Wyatt, MD and her staff at the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center have discovered several secrets that contribute to long-term weight loss success. Wyatt is the center’s associate director and co-author of “State of Slim,” the book that shows dieters how they can create their own state of slim no matter where they live.

Wyatt focuses on the mindset as much as diet and exercise in her transformational weight loss programs. Her newest program is Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp. The first boot camps in October sold out and 2015 sessions are scheduled for March, June, and July.

To keep those resolutions long past the holiday and for lasting weight loss success, Wyatt encourages dieters to identify their personal “why” for losing weight, focus on positive aspects of weight loss, create a supportive environment and develop new habits to make healthy decisions. Her tips are just in time for the new year:

Find your “real” why: dig deep, identify your why and write it down. Recognizing your strong internal motivation will help you stick with new healthy behaviors for more than a few weeks.
Be honest, are you really ready to make a change: how high a priority is your resolution? If it’s not an 8 or higher on a scale of 0-10, you’re not likely to stick with the necessary behavioral changes for long-term success.
Out with the old, in with the new: new friends, new places, new routines and new behaviors all help with weight loss transformation success. Surrounding yourself with like-minded people makes it easier.
Road map to success: you know what your New Year’s resolution is, now you have to map out the transformational journey. Exactly what will you do to lose those 15 pounds or train for a 5K? Achievement is in the details.
Go public and get vulnerable: it’s scary but put yourself out there. Tell lots of people about your resolution. Good old-fashioned peer pressure makes you accountable. It’s harder to cheat when everyone’s checking up on you.
Nobody’s perfect: no weight loss transformation journey is perfect. Life gets in the way. Have a plan to navigate the bumps in the road and stay focused despite the slip-ups. The body achieves what the mind believes.
Don’t hold back: make the decision to achieve your resolution and jump in with both feet. Making a halfhearted commitment won’t cut it. Know your why, your what and your how, then go for it 100%.
Score a quick win: nothing makes you more determined or gives you more confidence than quick success. Take your big goal and break it into bite size achievable chunks and feel your willpower skyrocket.
Create an autopilot and cruise to success: resolutions get harder to keep after four to six weeks when the excitement wears off. Having a default autopilot plan in place makes it easy and boosts willpower.
