Did you ever think or experience how our surroundings can impact our living?
Yes, our surrounding environment has a lot of impact on our daily life – sleep, stress,etc. Here are the surprising ways our surrounding environment can help us to be healthier..
Reduce screen time before bed, and sleep in complete darkness.
Our body posture – Notice your posture and sit up straight particularly at work to keep you alert and ready for action.
In between emails and meetings, take a deep breath in, and slowly exhale, and do your work from a place of calm.
Reduce clutter in your surroundings
Keep healthy foods within sight ( and junk food out of sight! )
Clean out your news feed – Notice what it is in your life that brings joy and love, and bring more attention to that. Consider unfriending, unfollowing, and letting go of the media consumption that is not serving you – This is similar to Nipun Mehta’s one of the projects – DailyGood.org

The community service group initiated their journey by visiting Bhartimaiya old age home in first two sessions.
During our visit, we met different people living there with different perspectives. We were able to connect many of our learnings from Life, Love and Integrity classes.
Here are some of our takeaways from the visit :
“Our life is our choice” was reaffirmed. Some of them had a very bitter experience in their life while few of them were so positive – they stated that life is struggle just accept it and enjoy it.
One should plan for the future- don’t be dependent on others. Have a secure life – plan finance, stay healthy and eat healthy, meditate. Never compare yourself with others, instead compare yourself with your yesterday and plan for tomorrow (shared by Mrs. Kamla Chawla who lives happily there since past 9 years).
Live your passion and keep it alive. Keep exploring – its never too late. Don’t wait for any opportunity instead go and ask for it. Believe in yourself.
