A walk down the healthy path

A walk down  the healthy path

As our lifestyle constantly changes, so does our immunity. But this fluctuation can be put to ease with regular exercise and a well-balanced diet. While many take their body for granted, others take time to keep it well. This not only has immediate reactions, but in the long run, can make one stronger and less stressed.

Regular exercise is important to improve our health but that isn't all.  It is also important to strive for the optimal well-being of health in order to lead a happy and stress-free life.
As youngsters become more health conscious, they have various fitness regimes and routines to stay fit, both mentally and physically.

Regular exercise
Jai Kashyap, a student of CMR Institute of Technology, says, “Earlier, diabetes would affect people in their 60s but today children as young as 15 years are affected by various diseases. As the world develops, newer problems arise; some may dismiss it saying diseases like diabetes are transmitted through genes to the next generation, I for one have experienced and seen it in my family that diabetes is a genetic disease. In order to keep the disease at bay, I regularly exercise and eat healthy. I add vegetables and fruits in my diet.”

Dump the junk
Milan Kankari, a student of Center for Management Studies, says, “With the onset of several diseases, it is important to lead a balanced life. Youngsters tend to rely on private vehicles to commute but this makes them lazy and encourages an unhealthy lifestyle. Instead, they should use public transport as it allows them to connect with their surroundings and keeps them fit because they have to walk more.”

Fun workout
Komal, a student of Mount Carmel College, says that 20 minutes of exercise everyday is a must. She adds, “If one finds yoga or working out boring, they can enrol for aerobics, Zumba or go jogging, which are fun activities. Most youngsters are under societal and peer pressure to look thin and this proves to be unhealthy for the person. One should introspect on their body patterns and do things accordingly. Understanding what your body likes and dislikes can help one lead a healthier lifestyle.”

Eating healthy
Diksha, a student of Mount Carmel College, says, “Girls are mostly focussed on looking good on the outside, which is not very healthy. Instead, they should focus on looking good both externally and internally.

There is a difference between looking fit and looking good, which is often taken for granted. As youngsters spend much of their day in educational institutions, it is important for canteens to promote healthy food habits. Most college canteens sell food which are high in calories; instead, they should provide items like salads, which encourage youngsters to stay healthy.”

Balanced diet
Mohmmed Umar Farooq, a student of Surana College, exercises thrice a week and follows a balanced and healthy diet to stay fit.

 He says, “Maintaining our health is extremely important especially when we are young. Good health is a reflection of what we eat and the exercise we do, especially when we are young. We should focus more on eating the right kind of food that suits the body, rather than following a diet, which maybe idealistic.”
