Velamavasya – Festival at Marathwada
Lord Ganesha is coming for 10 days. Everybody is busy with Decorations, Food and visiting friends and families.
Have you thought about any relation between Lord Ganesha and Health ? iCare clinic Pashan Pune wants to explain it to you.
Ever decided to go on a fad diet to fit into that new dress? But what we all fail to realise is that it is important to be wise about what you choose, be it a diet, exercise regime or something else in life. Listen to your body. Respect what you have, many don’t have the luxuries you take for granted. Think wisely before acting.
Listening to our body is the first step to complete fitness and health. Listen to your body and what it needs, it could mean a medical check-up that could save your life, or just something to beat stress or to lose those extra pounds so your body can function better. Whatever it is, listen and you will know exactly what you need.
When life gets the best of us, with a number of things happening all at once, you are probably at your multitasking best. But have you ever just focused on what you need? Figure out what you want and focus on it – your personal goals. It could be getting fitter and healthier, kicking the butt or simply beating stress.
Working hard and fighting for what you want is what you need to do to achieve your objective. So hit the gym, or work harder and you will definitely get what you set out to achieve.
Whether it is your fitness goals, or something bad that has happened to you recently, remember to throw away the bad and keep only the good. It ensures you carry lesser emotional baggage.
We all have excuses not to workout, or to miss that doctor’s appointment – we never run out of excuses for why we didn’t do something. But Lord Ganesha’s trunk teaches us that we must be highly adaptable to change. Life throws us a number of challenges at us every day; it is how we adapt that decides our future course of action.
You have to work for what you want. There are no shortcuts, no weight loss pills or magic drinks that can simply melt the fat away. You want to lose weight hit the gym and eat healthier. Regular exercise is the key.
The mouse signifies our innate desire that should be controlled. That extra gulab jamun, a small piece of cake or just one drag of a cigarette are all desires that need to be controlled.
Being upset or having ups and downs in life are normal, what Ganesha teaches you is to take it in your stride and work towards improving the situation. If you do hold on to things that emotionally harm you, it could lead to several problems that could range from depression to conditions like high blood pressure. So calm down, take a breath and move on!
The whining that comes with a strict workout regime, or muscle aches after, or a boss who gives you too much work, whatever the situation might be, learn to talk less and do more. It will not only help you do better it will also help you get rid of aggression in the healthiest manner possible – naturally! So, the next time you are faced with an obstacle, think of what Lord Ganesha teaches us; practice it and you will be well on your way to a happier and healthier life.
Wish you all a healthy happy Ganesh Chaturthi 2018
