Do you steps?

Title sounds funny , isn’t it ? Do you take steps or try to include steps in daily routine? Steps are everywhere and it’s a good workout I feel. It raises your heartbeat quickly. It’s harder than walking. My workplace has 135 steps and i have been doing it. If your home has steps like mine you can use them too. I have 15 steps at home and if I do that 10 times at once …. phew.

If you have high cholesterol and trying to reduce , include steps. I think it helps to lower cholesterol.

Enjoy steps !

Body The Temple

Body is called our first temple and you should keep it clean inside, out and healthy, make changes as we age . That includes mental faculties too. As we age body will have different needs. Why do you want to stay healthy? You can answer that for yourself .

Not to generalize ppl but I have noticed when I find something good and tell ppl at work or my yoga friends they will go to store or will buy it on amazon right away. But some ppl will just try what I gave them but will never buy and will just make some excuses. May be they don’t want to spend money or not interested in health. Well, each to their own. Some ppl have no time, money for life giving things but have everything for nonsense.

There are things we can do as young and won’t be able to do in old age . But then old age will have things to do too. Everyone seems to be planning things to do after retirement, after this and that… but remember by that time you will be old. So what we can do now, we should just do it. Like hiking I won’t be doing that at old age but I will have stories to tell young ppl and suggestions like drink beetroot juice , Eat some protein.

Are you keeping your temple in a good shape ? Is it maintained well? It’s spring time and so start cleaning it and then rebuild .

Enjoy!

Explore Local

In the virtual world now a days , it’s still imp to have real and local friends . You can’t go out for lunch with virtual friends, can you?

It’s imp to have local friends , local activities, everything local around you. If one wants to learn yoga , doesn’t need to go anywhere. There are plenty of yoga classes every where . Find something near you that appeals to you. I have learned and continue to learn so many things just from friends around me . Everyone is good at something. It’s your willingness to try, learn something new. People seem to be stuck in virtual world and don’t see what’s coming their way around them.

And if you like to do something like hiking, walking , running or anything get your friends together and start it provided you have local friends.

In short , Explore local . Everything that we need to learn is around us. Have some friends and you will have fun !

Enjoy!

PS: Picture is of local mountain that i hike with local friends.

Beetroot Before Hike

Are you into hiking or running and would like to feel little better , more energetic? Well, try beetroot. There’s some research also done on it.

My personal experience is when I eat beetroot night before hike , I do little better. I just boil beetroot , sprinkle some salt and lemon juice and eat it like a salad on the side .

Try it yourself and see if you feel better . There’s nothing to lose here.

Enjoy!

Steamed Orange

Steamed orange is a Chinese remedy for cough google says. It tasted so good that you can eat any day. Try if it appeals to you. Here’s how you do it.

  • Soak orange in salted water for 15 mins and then rinse.
  • Cut the top little bit.
  • Scrape surface little bit and sprinkle salt. Try to push salt in. Be careful with salt else it will become to salty.
  • Put the top back and steam for 15-20 mins.
  • Let it cool little bit and remove skin. Take the pulp and mix that water from the bowl.
  • Nice hot bowl of orange and it looks to pretty.
  • I think adding little ginger before steaming and some honey after it’s steamed will make it very tasty dessert.
  • Try it out with that orange sitting on the counter.
  • Enjoy !
