Being healthy and fit isn’t a fad or trend, It’s a life Style. I am sure you all agree with me on this point. I believe that greatest gift I can give my family is being healthy. Being healthy is a greatest challenge in today’s fast moving life. I personally feel that when we avoid certain things or problems in life, it takes control on you, so face the problem or situation or the challenges thrown on you ,so that you can have control over them and can achieve what you desire in life.
It reminds me of a small story or an episode from Mahabharata. Where Krishna and Balarama going to the forest and by then the sun had already set and could not continue their journey. So they decided to stay back, Krishna came up with the proposal that,” I will sleep and you keep watching me, whenever you feel sleepy you wake me up and I keep watching so that we will be safe”. Balarama who kept loitering, encounter a Monster in the forest and the monster screamed at Balarama and Balarama who was shaken up my the monster, shrunk by size and monster become bigger. This continue for some time and monster became bigger and bigger, made Balarama fainted. Krishna woke up and saw Balarama lying on the floor didn’t realize that he actually fainted and started walking to and fro ,also encountered with same monster who screamed at Krishna, Krishna didn’t perturbed by him, asked him what does he wants, monster again screamed and Krishna again asked “what do you want” this made monster smaller and smaller to an extent that Krishna lifted him and kept in this pocket. The monster here is all the challenges we face in life. When we avoid what you must face ,it becomes bigger than you and take control over you. So face what we must face and take control over it.
My challenge is to keep myself fit and healthy in this hectic and busy schedule. Instead of avoiding it and ignoring it ,I have decided to face it and work on it.
When I heard this story I was self-motivated and realized that love yourself enough to live a healthy life style. My way of being healthy is
- · Be happy
- · Be positive
- · Be yourself
