Walking is free,

Walking can be done anywhere and is suitable for all fitness levels, yet it’s something so many of us overlook as a great form of exercise. By walking just 1.5 km or about 30 minutes a day you can promote weight loss, boost your mood and lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Getting Started is the hardest part

30 minutes of walking 5 days a week is all that is needed to achieve great health benefits. If 30 minutes sounds daunting – Do not worry! You can break it down to 10 minutes of three short walks a day and get the same results.

What is holding you back? The sooner you get started the sooner you will notice the difference in your mind and body.

Going Green:

If you live in a built up city it can be hard to find fresh air and open spaces to walk in.

Green spaces and parks are more common than you think.

Use mobile apps to help you to locate the most accessible parks . Take Gurugram for instance, a city not particularly famous for its parks but even here there are 3 pieces of paradise you can go to for your recommended daily walk . Aravali Bio Diversity Park; Leisure Valley Park and Tau Devi Lal Bio Diversity Park

Getting  Social:

The Best thing about walking is you can do it with friends and catch up on all the news and gossip. It does not cost a thing, you already know how to do it and it can also be an excellent way of meeting new people. There are many dedicated walking groups that you can find on the web that will match you up with your desired social group.

Do not wait any longer. Get your trainers on and go for a walk. This will help reduce pollution and  your health. If you don’t believe me just ask Science.

Your walking clothes should be a comfortable fit and of course, allow you to move freely.  Do remember to get yourself a good pair of shoes with arch support.

This Month’s resolution: Drink more water to get the Big Win. While it may not sound as the most exciting New year resolution, it can be the most rewarding.

 In one drop of water is found all the secrets of the ocean

Khalil Gibran

Little steps can have a great impact in achieving a healthy lifestyle.

This is our third story on this monthly series  that aims to help you develop and adopt a positive lifestyle change to achieving the Big Win. We all know that drinking water is  essential for us to stay alive but did you also know that-

drinking water can improve metabolism, prevent fatigue, help you detox and reduce stress.

So what is stopping us? Here is how you can embrace this habit?

Drinking 8 glasses of water is doable enough but our busy schedules make us forget, we substitute beverages for water and of course too much caffeine. The easiest thing is to listen to your body and drink water when you are thirsty – but it is easier said than done so here are a few tricks to make you fall in love with your water.

Make jugs of naturally flavoured water using fruit, veg and herbs—
Here is the recipe to make a refreshing drink:

To make the infusion, you can start with cold water or, for a stronger flavor, with hot (not boiling) water, as this will help extract flavor. Set the water aside until cool and you can chill in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving, or add some ice cubes.

Here are some of my favorite combinations:

  • Slices of orange, lemon and lime with fresh mint sprigs
  • Lemon and cucumber
  • Pineapple chunks and slices of fresh ginger
  • Dried rosebuds or rose petals—you can use fresh, but the dried have a more concentrated flavor
  • Fresh or dried lavender

Water responds to our thoughts, energy vibrations and emotions and the energy in its environment. So next time you go to drink a glass of water, give it a little love and feel how it nourishes your body and soul.
