In our modern hustle and bustle of life, an exhausted mind and body are very common. This exhaustion leads to an increase in stress, causing our mental health to deteriorate and often resulting in depression. So how do we combat stress?
Meditation, pranayama and yoga can provide an effective solution to manage stress better, keep the body healthy and restore mental stability. Scientific and medical guidance also play an important role in maintaining the physical and mental health of people.
Recognising this need of the citizens, the “We Are in This Together” campaign by Sakal Media Group brings to you a three-day programme for complete health and mental wellness. The campaign is being organised in four places in Pune from December 9th to 11th.
Experts from various fields will come together to share guidance and insights on various topics related to health and wellness through the Swasthyam initiative.
What is Swasthyam for?
Scientific information about meditation:
Often physical diseases might be a manifestation of a restless mind. Stress, tension, overthinking, fear and worry cause fatigue in our minds and bodies.
But to control all of this, we need a stable and balanced mind which can be achieved through regular meditation.
Pranayama for healthy body, senses and mind:
The lack of prana in various parts of the body causes diseases. Pranayama balances the prana energy and destroys disease-causing germs. Practising pranayama regularly helps to keep the body, senses and mind healthy.
It is also an excellent way to learn breathing techniques and how to control your breath.
Yoga for good, healthy and fit mind and body:
Yoga is an age-old secret possessed by ancient people. Yoga comes from the word “Yog”, which means coming together or aligning. We know that good health is the balance of four things – mental, physical, intellectual and spiritual well-being.
However, Yoga includes the coming together of three things – mental, physical and spiritual. With the alignment of these three essential things, the right balance of human life is maintained.
Correlation between spirituality and good health:
Through spirituality, a person learns to look at oneself inwardly, leading the person to introspect. This introspection creates a positive impact on mental and physical well-being.
Spirituality also helps people realise the meaning and essence of life, develop moral values and adopt good habits.
Healthy diet and health:
In our hectic lives, paying attention to your body’s health along with a balanced diet is necessary.
To ensure good health, the body needs nutritious and sattvic (nutritious) food. If the body does not get enough nutrition, it begins to show the ill effects of not eating healthy food.
Relationship of singing, art and music with health:
Music calms our nerves and makes our minds feel at peace. Music, art and singing have a deep connection to the mind and body, and we often see the results of it in therapy tied with these art forms.
