Best & Worst Foods For Kids During Monsoon Season

One easy way to take care of your kids during the rainy season is to plan monsoon foods for them. We all know that during monsoon, the body is more Sensitive to catch an infection and digestive process in kids slows down during monsoons.  Every care has to be taken to avoid such conditions. The need is to make the body strong internally and develop the immune system. With a strong immune system, diseases can be kept away.

So, Here i am going to share some best and worst foods for kids during this monsoon:-

Best Foods For Rainy Season

1) EGG  :  Egg is full of protein and a complete meal in itself. With one egg every day, your child is bound to get a good dose of all required vitamins, minerals and proteins along with the power to fight colds and coughs. Its warmth giving quality is just ideal for the monsoon.

2)  Garlic :  Any food with garlic is a good bet in the monsoon, mainly because garlic is packed with antioxidants. It helps boost the body’s immunity and also regulates the metabolism. You can add garlic to any foods you cook for your child for added taste as well as benefit.

3) Milk :  Kesar, turmeric  is a spice that contains plant derived chemicals and is found to be very helpful in preventing diseases. This makes it one of the helpful monsoon foods for kids. Mixed with milk, it becomes a power drink for child.

4 )  Soups :  Be it vegetarian or non-vegetarian, soup is comforting and beneficial every way. Add some pasta to the soup and make it a complete meal. A soup is always one of the healthy foods for kids.

5 ) Ginger  :   During monsoon, the immune system becomes weak and the stomach is prone to catch infection. Consuming ginger is an excellent way to keep the stomach healthy and free of infection.

6) Almonds  :   These nuts are a great snacking option any time of the year, but during monsoon, they give your kids an extra protective cover against various diseases. Almonds are packed with digestive fibre which regulates the metabolism and prevents onset of tummy issues – otherwise a common problem during monsoon.

Worst Foods For Rainy Season

  1. Dahi /Yoghurt  :  The monsoon is the time when many children fall prey to seasonal illnesses such as cold and cough. Yogurt is known to aggravate the problem of sinusitis when consumed at this time. This happens mainly because of its cooling nature. Also avoid other curd-based foods. It could worsen your child’s cough or congestion.

2 ) Indo-Chinese Street Food  :   Kids love the street-side Chinese food that is very popular in India. However, this is not a safe food for monsoon season. During the rainy season, chances are high that the water used for preparation could be contaminated. The food could also be infected by germs from flies and insects.

3) Soft Drinks :   I am/expert not saying this only to avoid risk of cold and fever. Experts say that fizzy drinks reduce the minerals in our body, and this can reduce enzyme activity. The end result is that the digestive system gets weaker at a time when the body is already at risk of digestive issues. Overall, not a healthy food in rainy season at all!

4)  Sea Food :   Monsoon is the breeding season for some fish and prawns and this can impact the quality and/or taste. Fish can also turn bad rapidly in the humid and wet weather. It is better to stick to poultry items such as chicken.

This allows your toothbrush to be cleaner and your mouth healthier!

The shield is easy to apply. It simply pops open at the bottom. Then you put the top of your toothbrush in. It seemed to fit perfectly over my standard sized toothbrush. It seems as if it would really fit perfectly over any toothbrush.

IntelliDent’s Claim  that their toothbrush shield keeps your toothbrush dry. Yes, It’s  completely true.

Body Changes In Your 30’s

Hi All,

These days lot of things going on.  From the busy schedule i got some time to write for my blog. Some time ago I read an article about what happens to a woman’s body during her  30s.  Whether we like it or not, after the age of 30, women’s bodies experience some changes. Understanding and recognising that these changes are a normal part of aging can help in the transition and make such changes seem less sudden and strange. So familiarise yourself with how your body is going to be changing as you learn about women’s body changes.

These are body changes  : 

  • Weight Gain  or Weight Loss :   According to experts, after 30  your metabolism begins to slow down. This is why you may find yourself gaining weight even though you aren’t eating more.

  • Wrinkles, Skin changing  :   Your skin begins to lose elasticity. Most people will notice a few small wrinkles on forehead, mouth and eyes. If you experience a lot of stress, they can be much more apparent.

  •  Hair loss :  For many men and even some women, if they’re going to develop hair loss, it will usually start happening in their 30s. It usually starts with thinning hair or a receding hairline.

  • Increased Disease Risk :  Decreased immune efficiency, slower repair processes and reduced production of key hormones are a few of the suspected reasons. Once you’re in your 30s, your risks of things like heart disease, diabetes, cancer and chronic pain go up.

  • Fertility :  Hormones start dropping in your 30s, so do your chances of conceiving. It’s not uncommon for people over 30 to struggle with starting a family, and many eventually turn to fertility treatments for assistance.

Yoga Postures for Stress and Healthy Mind

Hi all,

thumb_IMG-20160131-WA0020_1024

My Sunday comes with relaxing and I have decided to chills with my lovely daughter. Instead of that i have found some interesting article it’s related to stress and for Healthy mind. “How to relieve from stress and get healthy mind.” . Yoga Postures will help to relieve from both. When i was doing Art of living course  and in that yoga course they teaches us how to do yoga and all postures.

Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines physical poses, controlled breathing, and meditation or relaxation. Yoga may help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and lower your heart rate. And almost anyone can do it. Our hectic lifestyles that we lead, you may not always find the time to workout regularly, even though you must try and spare a few minutes for it everyday. But here are some simple yoga exercises that you could do while in office or at home to ease the mind and feel relaxed. They are simple to follow and require no supervision. Here are yoga postures for a healthy mind and stress buster :

1)       Anjali Mudra :

Anjali-Mudra

Similar to our ‘namaste’, sit cross-legged on the floor and bring your palms together with the fingers stretching out to the centre of your chest (heart chakra). This represents the harmony of the two sides (right and left). Now close your eyes and slowly inhale, hold your breath for a few minutes, and then exhale. Continue this pattern for a few minutes.

2)      Balasana :

Balasana

Also known as the ‘child’s pose’, it stretches and relaxes the neck, back and the lower spine. Sit on your knees with your hands on the sides (inhale), and then slowly lower your head to touch the floor when you feel your back and hands stretching (exhale). Bring yourself back to your knees (inhale) and continue the process for a couple of minutes.

3)    Uttanasana  :

This forward bending pose may seem difficult for those who lack flexibility but with repeated practice, you will get better at it. It is a great stretching exercise for the spine and therefore helps in releasing tension. Stand straight with the feet a little apart and inhale.

Slowly bend forward to bring your head closer to your knees while stretching your hands out to touch your feet. You will feel an intense stretch on your hamstring and back. You could bend your knees a little if you like. Let your neck, head and hands hang loose and relax. You can take a few short breaths while you hold the pose, and then bring yourself back up to your feet with your back straight as you exhale.

4)    Uttana Shishosana : 

Uttana Shishosana

Popularly known as the ‘extended puppy pose’, this inversion pose can help you release tension in your shoulders. Bring yourself onto all fours by keeping your shoulders above your wrists and your hips above your knees. Move your hands forward a few inches and curl your toes under. Inhale.

5)  Savasana : 

Savasana

Referred to asthe ‘corpse pose’, it may seem extremely easy but is considered to be one of the toughest asanas to get right. This is the ultimate form of relaxation as it brings the nervous system to a complete rest before getting back to the daily functions. Lie down on your back with your eyes closed, arms by your sides, palms facing up and legs stretched out. Let your ankles fall outward. Then slowly start inhaling and exhaling as you melt deeper into the floor with each breath. Stay in this pose for a minimum of 5 minutes.

I hope you all like article and let’s start your day with these simple steps.  Keep healthy and Live healthy Enjoy!!!!!

But, this ONE exercise can give the same effect in just 5 minutes.

MEANING OF SUDARSHAN KIRYA: 

Su’ means proper, ‘darshan’ means vision, and ‘Kriya’ is a purifying practice. The Sudarshan Kriya is therefore a purifying practice, whereby one receives a proper vision of one’s true self. This unique breathing practice is a potent energizer.

HOW TO DO SUDARSHAN KRIYA:
