To a rejuvenate your body

Of tensions, stress, pain

General Idea:

For our body to work smoothly, heal, we should learn to be calm and be happy. Firstly, quiet the mind and your soul will speak. Take some time for your internal body and your soul. We paint our faces with cosmetics, put heavy jewelry, wear branded apparel to look beautiful. But do we ever care for our soul with is so tired? This is the reason for so much unrest in the world. Today, we suffer from murders, robbery, suicides, wars, diplomatic and political issues, and whatnot. Did you ever think why is it so? It is because our mind is strangled with so many complexities.

We do not give it time. We are always busy in meetings, seeing social media posts, throwing parties or something else. To be someone else we have lost ourselves and completely forgotten what we are. In this fast cosmopolitan life, nobody has time. But if none of us will be at rest then how would the world grow? How would we make it a better place to live in!

  4. Daily we consume too much caffeine in the form of coffee or tea.
  5. Come home late and consuming the extra oily and spicy- basically ‘tasty’ junk food.
