If you sleep for less than seven hours a night, you could have heart issues at a later stage in life, say experts. Insomnia too can release plenty of ‘stress-related’ hormones – cortisol in large quantities would increase blood pressure levels and diabetes in the body too – cardiovascular issues! Hence, make it a point to have 8 hours of sleep every night.

Blowing bubbles

As easy as blowing bubblesThis was a favourite pastime for me as a kid – I haven’t grown out of it yet, and maybe wouldn’t. But, blowing bubbles, I learnt is the best way to improve your breathing. When you blow bubbles, the lips and the mouth, along with the respiratory muscles are pursed and puckered – stop pouting for the cameras, blow bubbles and breathe right.

Music is my therapy

Power walks and Yoga with good music for company; why not? Whatever works for you mate, it should be energising and upbeat – you’d workout more without knowing about it.

You should savour your meals, because when you give respect to what is on your plate, your body gets the respect it deserves – health and well-being. And yes eat chocolates too. Chocoholics like me would love this point – chocolates have flavonols in them, antioxidants too. All of this helps with the blood circulation in the body and to the brain. The antioxidants fight the damage done by free-radicals; helps keep cancer and tumours at bay as well.
