Diwali is a good time to make positive changes. Let go of what is not working and do
things that will upgrade your life to the next level. Here are some ideas to make your
hair and health better.
1. Love Your Hair
There is no such thing as ‘perfect hair’. Whether your hair is too fine, too thin, thick,
curly, frizzy, or damaged – let go of the struggle and simply love it the way it is.
What we think and feel about our bodies have an influence on our cells, body and
overall health. So when someone has a negative relationship with their body or hair,
and their thoughts are those of dislike and hatred toward their appearance, it does
create a negative reality. As a result, their hair appears dull and sad. And it can take a
serious toll on the body and spirit. To get positive results you need to change your
thinking. So instead of saying ‘I hate my hair’, opt for a more positive thought like “As I
take care of my hair, it gets healthier.” Within a few months of practice, your looks
will change for good and you will radiate beauty that will not go unnoticed.
2. Buy Natural Products
Harsh synthetic products not just harm our skin and hair; they go down the drain and
end up in stream, groundwater, rivers, ocean and eventually, in our tap. While your one
bottle of shampoo might not be the cause of major concern. When you consider the fact
that millions of people use such products, then we start to see a problem.
Natural products do tend to cost more, but you can be proud of choosing the safer
alternative which is good for you as well as the environment. Make a habit to read the
ingredient labels and if you are not sure about its safety, consult with a hair specialist
who will guide you to the right direction.
3. Eat Well
The food you eat becomes you after a few hours. It builds your skin, hair, organs, blood,
muscles, and bones. It can also affect your mood, your sleep and your concentration.
Don’t try to change overnight. That will be overwhelming for you and you will give up the
next day. Instead start by giving up just one thing – whether it’s crisps, donuts, biscuits,
alcohol, or caffeine, start with your weak spot. Once you’ve mastered that, you’ll feel
motivated to give up something else.
Consider doing a kitchen detox every few months. Bin the processed foods – sugary
cereals, table salt (opt for sea salt), canned meat, cakes, instant noodles, and fruit
yogurt. Fill your kitchen with real foods, such as lentils, pulses, vegetables, fruits, nuts
and seeds, whole grains, live yogurt, cheese, hummus, cold pressed oils, ghee, and
wholefood supplements like NAVEDA Spirulina.
4. Exercise, Exercise, Exercise
Many people think exercise or physical activity is only about losing weight and/or
building muscles, but it’s so much more than that. Exercise is about a million small
perks, like better sleep, better posture, more energy, glowing skin and hair, and an
overall healthy body.
Research shows that exercise can boost self-confidence, as well as reduce your
feelings of depression and anxiety. As a general goal, aim for 30 minutes of physical
activity 3 to 4 days a week.
Exercise doesn’t have to be boring. It’s, in fact, a great way to unwind, enjoy the
outdoors, and have fun. Physical activity can also help you connect with family or
friends in a fun social setting. So, take a dance class, learn a sport, or walk your
children to and from school.
5. Be Happy Now
We always postpone our happiness to tomorrow. We look at happiness as something
that will come after we achieve certain thing: If I get gorgeous hair that turns heads I will
be really happy. Or if I get: a nice home, a perfect partner, the dream job… I will be truly
happy. Happiness is not something that will happen to us if things go well. Happiness is
here, now, with things the way they are, with your hair thick or thin. Join a Laughter
