Money has a similar connotation as fat. It is essential in small quantity to address daily need for self and family. When money is produced in excess, it becomes boon or bane based on its utilization. When excess money is effectively deployed to address the need of poor people, it benefits the society and enhances your reputation. Otherwise it becomes the source of unhappiness in the family.
Healthy people effectively deploy their fat & money for good health and happiness.

When you run to catch a bus or panic out of fear, again body has to respond instantaneously by giving additional energy or alerting the system for flight or fight. This adaptation happens continuously 24x7. And body responds without neglecting the routine tasks.
Beyound the routine work, your mind is continuously innovating ideas/thoughts as you interact with your environment. It can be an advice to a dear friend or solving a problem.
So your body does routine tasks with precision, continuously adapt to new challenges and stay creative with innovative approaches. This is the law of nature.
Now you observe yourself. Most of us tend to fail on all three counts. We default in our routine tasks time and again. And blame it on emergencies. When CHANGE comes, we procastinate or find excuse for avoiding it. And finally, most of us lack creativity or innovation. Be it at work or otherwise.
Life has to become difficult if we go against our nature.

However, when we continue our anger and let our EGO not allow us to make first move towards reconciliation, we lose out. If we can practice to think objectively post our argument, and make first move to solve the issue at hand, we have won the battle. Remember, post such splash, both the parties are feeling bad about the incident and are highly susceptible towards compromise. First mover advantage gives you the upper hand.
Psychologist call this exercise as building your "Let Go" muscles. This is the first step towards winning over your anger. Once "Let Go" muscles are strengthened, our ability to remain calm under tense situation also improves.
Try this out and win over your adversaries.

Solitude is an important aspect of wellness. It is NOT meditation. It is a phase which allows us to revalidate our values, ponder on our existance and its relevance to people and surrounding in which we exist.
Today in a nuclear family world, we have enough time to understand, nourish and practice solitude. Destress and simplify your life through meaningful solitude.

On the contrary, when you take a task as your responsibility, it continues perpetually. This include your tasks as head of family, as a parent, as a spouse, as a professional and so on. Hence, for health and wellbeing activity to sustain forever, it has to be taken as a RESPONSIBILITY. Once you have adopted this approach, you will enjoy the fruits of good health.

State of wellness is an ardous uphill journey towards an experience of Good Health. Few who have lived that state, cherish it forever. I wish our future hospitals can transform into holistic well-being centers, helping people to look and travel on right side of Axis of Health!

In our last sixteen months of interaction with hundreds of people with varied background, we realized that 80% people are ignorant about dental hygiene. And 100% are not following the complete regime for maintaining healthy teeth.
Proper dental hygiene is linked to reduced incidence of heart disease and is correlated with greater longevity. Less than 1% Indian report regular dental hygiene compared to 20% in developed economies.
Dental hygiene means removal of food particle trapped after every meal or snack we take. Food particle left unattended attracts bacteria, which while feeding on trapped food produces acid. Acid decays the strongest of human bone - our tooth. Process of decay is very slow, however continuous. Hence, we start having cavities (bacteria reaching the pulp) as early as thirty years of age.
Most of us brush regularly with an intention to prevent this damage. However, technique deployed is incorrect, which continue to damage our gums and helps in further tooth decay.
Here are simple techniques for healthy teeth:
1. Brushing: Twice a day, vertical from gums towards tooth at 45 degree angle. Intention is to massage the gums and remove trapped food particles between teeth. It hardly feels like brushing!!
2. Flossing: Once at bed time to remove food particles trapped between gums and tooth. Take the floss along the curve of the tooth (not vertical) to prevent damage to gums.
3. Mouth wash with potassium permanganate (add few crystals to one liter of water) daily. This disinfects, neutralizes acid and controls growth of nuisance microorganism.
4. And finally massage gums regularly with your fingers using ayurvedic products like Gum Tone.
Food containing fluoride and low acidity is beneficial for maintaining healthy teeth. Green tea (fluoride rich), milk based non-sweetened food (low acidity, enriches calcium), fruits like apple, strawberries, kiwis (strengthen gums) and water (keeps teeth hydrated) are good.
Foods and drinks containing sugar and acid (fruit juice, colas, black tea/coffee, citrus fruits, cake, chips etc.) are detrimental. Hence, proper mouth wash and/or brushing is necessary after their consumption.
Have a beautiful smile
