EATING RIGHT- When it comes to food,one of the most important aspects that you must be conscious of is how quickly a certain type of food digests and become a part of yourself..if you eat something and it does not get digested within 3 hours, it means you have eaten food that should either be avoided or reduced in quantity.if the food moves out of your stomach within 3 hours, it means that even if it is not the best, it is still something your system is able to handle. If you maintain a clear gap of five to six hours between one meal and the other without having anything in between cleansing will happen on the cellular level. This cleansing on the cellular level is most important for a healthy life.if you are over 30 years of age , two good meals a day will suffice-one in the morning and one in the evening. There must be a 3 hour gap between the evening meal and the time you go bed.if this includes at least 20 to 30 minutes of light physical activity-such as simple walking-your system will largely be healthy.if you go to bed with still inside the stomach, it generates a certain level of inertia in the system. Physiologically , this inertia is like an acceleration towards death. death is the ultimate inertia.
USE YOUR BODY- When it comes to activity , one simple thing that we need to consider is capable of bending forward and backward ,and twisting to both sides. This much activity must happen in some form or the other. Classical hatha yoga is the best way to do it,and a scientific one. If classical hatha yoga is not yet part of your life , you must somehow make sure that every day ,you bend forward,backward ,twist to both sides,and squat so that the spinal comlumn is stretched. This is a must for everybody on a daily basis if you want to keep the entire system healthy-particularly the neurological system, which will otherwise be an issue as one ages.
GET ENOUGH REST BUT NOT TOO MUCH- The volume of rest that an individual needs is determined by various factors. One important factor is the type and the volume of food that you consume.you must experiment with different types of foods and see which one makes you feel heavy,and which one leave you light and agile.if you make sure that atleast 40%of your diet consists of fresh vegetables and fruits,there will be lightness in the body. What the body needs is restfulness,not necessarily sleep. It is a misunderstanding to think that sleep is the only way to rest. Even as you sit or stand,you can either be in a state of restfulness in a state of agitation,or in a state of inertia. If you are in a lively state of restfulness,every moment of your life,yhe volume of sleep you require will decrease.
