On the occasion of India’s 67th Independence Day, let us look back at India’s long and illustrious journey through the centuries. It’s long. And illustrious, yes! So let us focus on just  a few aspects of our heritage that touch our everyday lives and help us be #healthy, #happy, #sane & sorted people in this rushed bad, mad world!

Let us look at some traditional Indian practices we should go back to!

Eating with our hands

Indians traditionally use their hands to eat. Be it rice, roti or any other type of food. The benefits of the practice are that it is:

Great for your digestion

Keeps all the five elements of your body in concert.

The skin sends data to the brain about the temperature, texture of the food and this acts like a catalyst in the action of generating the necessary salivary juices.

Eating with the hands, one can verify the temperature of the food before and it can prevent one from burning of the mouth.

Hands behave as energetic cleansers when the food passes via hand to mouth. A similar kind of tradition is followed in many religions where people eat after placing their palms above the food.

Sitting on the floor and eating

Sitting on the floor and eating has a number of health benefits –

Aids in proper digestion

Improves your posture

Hastens your metabolic rate

Helps you lose weight, since you concentrate on the food & mindful eating

Strengthens the heart & improves circulation

Sitting cross-legged relaxes the mind & calms the nerves

Helps you bond with loved ones.

Ayurveda

It was the first science to highlight prevention as an important objective before cure of diseases. Food, shelter, sleep and sex are the  necessities of life and Ayurveda mentions the right quality and quantity of each of these parameters along with benefits. By introducing the concept of Dincharya (Daily Routine) & Ritucharya (Seasonal routine), Ayurveda emphasises the importance of maintaining health through following routine and not just taking necessary measures when disease strikes.

Yoga 

Yoga treats illness by addressing the root cause and preventing relapses. It has proven benefits in physical as well as psychological symptoms with regular practice.

Meditation

 The earliest scripture of meditation is available in the Vedas. Some experts even believe that it’s the capacity of meditation that allows a person to improve his focus and attention. It’s something that differentiates humans from animals. Today, people from all over the world practice and preach meditation

There are many other traditional Indian beliefs and practices, as well as a whole range of ayurvedic means and products to achieve your life goals. Check them out at http://www.naturalmantra.com.
