Happy Retirement !



RETIREMENT - TO LIVE AND LET LIVE!

Retirement is not a work status, it’s an attitude.
You are retired but not expired!   Make life after retirement pleasant!!







Many people feel unhappy, health-wise and security-wise, after 60 years of age owing to the diminishing importance given to them and their opinion. But it need not be so, if only we understand the basic principles of life and follow them scrupulously. Here are ten mantras to age gracefully and make life after retirement pleasant.

1. Never say ‘I am aged': There are three ages, chronological, biological, and psychological. The first is calculated based on our date of birth; the second is determined by the health conditions and the third is how old you feel you are. While we don't have control over the first, we can take care of our health with good diet, exercise and a cheerful attitude. A positive attitude and optimistic thinking can reverse the third age.

2. Health is wealth: If you really love your kith and kin, taking care of your health should be your priority. Thus, you will not be a burden to them. Have an annual health check-up and take the prescribed medicines regularly. Do take health insurance cover.

3. Money is important: Money is essential for meeting the basic necessities of life, keeping good health and earning family respect and security. Don't spend beyond your means even for your children. You have lived for them all through and it is time you enjoyed a harmonious life with your spouse. If your children are grateful and they take care of you, you are blessed. But never take it for granted.

4. Relaxation and recreation: The most relaxing and recreating forces are a healthy religious attitude, good sleep, music and laughter. Have faith in God, learn to sleep well, love good music and see the funny side of life.

5. Time is precious: It is almost like holding a horse's reins. When they are in your hands, you can control them. Imagine that everyday you are born again. Yesterday is a cancelled cheque. Tomorrow is a promissory note. Today is ready cash — use it profitably. Live this moment.

6. Change is the only permanent thing: We should accept change — it is inevitable. The only way to make sense out of change is to join the dance. Change has brought about many pleasant things. We should be happy that our children are blessed.

7. Enlightened selfishness: All of us are basically selfish. Whatever we do, we expect something in return. We should definitely be grateful to those who stood by us. But our focus should be on the internal satisfaction and happiness we derive by doing good to others, without expecting anything in return.

8. Forget and forgive: Don't be bothered too much about others' mistakes. We are not spiritual enough to show our other cheek when we are slapped in one. But for the sake of our own health and happiness, let us forgive and forget them. Otherwise, we will be only increasing our BP.

9. Everything has a purpose: Take life as it comes. Accept yourself as you are and also accept others for what they are. Everybody is unique and right in his own way.

10. Overcome the fear of death: We all know that one day we have to leave this world. Still we are afraid of death. We think that our spouse and children will be unable to withstand our loss. But the truth is no one is going to die for you; they may be depressed for some time. Time heals everything and they will carry on.

Be Fit For Your Benefit !



Human body is God’s perfect gift. Each organ made to perfection. Life & Death is a mystery. We are all designed to live not less than 100 years. But we have shortened our life by abusing the mind and body. The average age of humans today in the world is 71 and 73 for men and women respectively. The average age of Indian today is 62 and 65 for men and women. Longevity seems to be the health buzzword these days, and for good reason. Secrets to Living a Long and Happy Life is nothing but living healthy. The key to a successful healthy life is maintaining a correct body.

The secret for weight gain for a normal person is 70 + 20 + 10 formula, that is = is 70% due to food / 20% due to lack of exercise / 10% due to lack of sleep.

A. FOOD: 

Our life style now has become sedentary. We require only 2000 to 2500 calorie every day depending upon our body frame. Diabetic people require only 60 to 75 % of the same. Every gain of 1000 calories leads to 1 KG extra body weight which will be felt as 4 KGs by knee joints and that would be most affected organ apart from the heart which has to pump out more and more blood supply to the unnecessarily larger body surface. So plan your food input to avoid unnecessary weight gain. This chart given here compiled with complete information to avoid gaining unnecessary calories and to know possible ways to reduce as well.

Tips:
1. Take fruits in the morning and reduce your other breakfast items

2. Finish of your night dinner around 8.00 pm.

3. No snacks in between meals.

4. Reduce oil & sugar as much as possible. Sugar is the main culprit.

5. Disappoint your stomach during every meal – should feel no full stomach

6. Check your weight especially - seasonal influences during festive seasons and Mango fruit seasons.

7. Eat when hungry and masticate while eating

UNDERSTAND YOU - Buy a weighing machine: weigh yourself once in three days - study your body response to your various habits. Maintain your right BMI (body mass index). Don’t forget to check your weighing machine’s reliability once in a while.



B. EXERCISE: 


Please note exercise will not reduce your body weight dramatically. Exercise and sweating during exercise helps internal body enzymes to flow and clean your blood vessels and prevents vascular plaques or blocks. It makes you to get good oxygen to body cells and helps to maintain fluids for skeletal movements. A tread mill at 5kms/hour speed for half an hour burns away only around 100 calories, but one banana can give you 200 calorie! At least, minimum ½ hour exercise to all body structures is important and it must be properly programmed. Warm up first few minutes – slowly increase the duration and maintain standard duration and don’t forget to give some minutes to cool down before resuming routines. Drink water before and after. No food or juice immediately after exercise. Don’t over exercise suddenly, expecting miracles. Practice breathing exercise at least for 15 minutes by proper exhalation and inhalation. It extends your life or otherwise we respire only 50 to 60 % in a normal life. (Remember the correct way that your stomach to bulge while inhaling and tuck in while exhaling) After every meal have a mild walk for 5 to 10 minutes before sitting down.

C. SLEEPING HABIT: 

Calories burned during sleep are used to sustain vital functions in the body. Monitoring and maintaining your internal temperature, repairing cells and pumping blood are some of the nighttime activities that our body naturally does. Want to burn more calories when sleeping? Set a sleep pattern and go to bed at the right and same time each night so you get the proper amounts of good and deep sleep. There must be a gap of at least one and half to two hours between meal and sleep and 6 to 8 hours of sleep is alright.

So,

EAT SIMPLY - Plant-based food like variety of legumes, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. Practice eating a large breakfast, a moderate sized lunch and a light dinner. STAY ACTIVE -Find something you enjoy and walk around, HAVE A LIFE PURPOSE - keep learning by never losing your childlike curiosity, REDUCE STRESS – By Yoga , meditation & music, HAVE A SOCIAL NETWORK - with friends and relatives, BUTT OUT - bad habits like smoking and BELIEVE YOUR SPIRITUALITY and personal faith.

Life means more… Enjoy your life, God bless you.
