Meditation is the best way to stay fit and reduce stress. Some people think that meditation is only chanting. But meditation is a mere controlling of one’s breathing patterns. Sometimes, we breathe really fast. By doing so, we get less oxygen. If our body does not receive necessary oxygen it is not possible for us to stay healthy. Lack of oxygen also causes mental disturbances. A key to this problem is to meditate. Hold your breath and release it slowly. When you meditate, make sure you do it a peaceful place with dim lighting. Keep your back straight, sit comfortably and practice by concentrating on your breathing.
Sleep is one of the key aspects which greatly affect our mental as well as physical health. We all require at least eight hours and due to our hectic lifestyle, we don’t even get approximately 6 hours of sleep. Sleep also affects a number of other aspects like metabolism, concentration, mood, motor skills, memory skills and the immune system. Sleep is something is which is really essential for a person to allow his body to repair, heal and rejuvenate itself in a way which it cannot do when the person is awake.

You need to drink at least eight to ten glasses of water as it helps in blood circulation, absorption of nutrients, digestion of food and control and transmission of signals to the nerves. Also, water helps to remove toxics from the body in the form of urine, sweat, mucus and tears. Reduce stress Stress is the root of all problems from heart problems to digestive disorders.
