Thank you 2020 for Making me- ME!
*In a teleshopping commercial tone*
Mai bohot moti hua karti thi, log (just my brother- Aashay) mujhe Moti, Bhains, Baby Elephant, etc etc bulaya karte the Par ek din mere life me aya Nike Training Club ka app, aur usne meri duniya badal di =P
Jokes apart =D, 2020… you have made me care about my physical and mental health!
I’m ever so grateful to this year for making me the best version of myself. <3
Even though, there was a phase in the year, a phase where I felt something foreign; anxiety.
It was a totally new concept to me, I worried about my family’s health obsessively. I rolled down into a dark pool of fear. I knew that all of this was coming to me only because I had nothing to do, so I started to make use of the time by creating content, working out, reading and most importantly, SKIN CARE. I also took some professional help (through a doctor) because I knew eating right, working out and reading a lot is not the solution to everything. The doctor helped me a lot. Apart from that, there was a whole process that needed to be done to deal with my mental health. (:
Little tips on how I achieved this physical and mental transformation:
!!!! NOTE: I DID NOT DO A DIET (Although I do try to consume some greens everyday) NEITHER DID I PARTAKE IN ANY SORT OF HYPNOTHERAPY NOR DID I GO TO A LIFE COACH !!!!
- Consulted a doctor for my mental health
- Intermittent fasting (8-16)
- Work out of maximum 45 minutes, 5 days a week (beginner plan on NTC)
- Burning incense
- Bach flower remedy
- 7 hours of sleep
- I tried to cut down on aerated drinks. I’m still trying =’D
- I massively cut down on alcohol, successfully. (I’ve consumed alcohol only about four to five times this year)
- Home cooked meals 99% of the time
- Maximum intake of rice instead of wheat/gluten
- GREEN TEA x2
- 3-4 Litres of water, out of which 1 litres hot water (optional)
All of the things listed above were not practiced by me everyday without fail. I did have setbacks, and I did have those days when I just didn’t want to move my ass. And guess what? I didn’t move my ass when I was having one of those days. =)
Also, getting serious about your health doesn’t mean you HAVE to strip yourself off of all sinful indulgences. When I really need (especially when it’s that time of the month) a burger or a chocolate mousse, I eat it. <3
