RE­JU­VE­NA­TION

India Today - - GUIDE TO BETTER LIVING -

1 Some form of daily ex­er­cise, prefer­ably in fresh air, is ad­vis­able. It could be a walk, jog, or a few sim­ple ex­er­cises in your back gar­den. For added en­gage­ment and sus­tained in­ter­est, in­volve part­ners, friends, and chil­dren.

2 Re­dis­cover lost and for­got­ten hob­bies. Cer­tain recre­ational pur­suits or in­ter­ests out of sheer pas­sion hold in­tu­itive ap­peal be­cause they feel like a nat­u­ral sanc­tu­ary. It is nec­es­sary to ‘ven­ti­late’ these, to keep the in­ter­nal sup­ply of cre­ativ­ity, pos­i­tiv­ity and hap­pi­ness at healthy lev­els.

3 Spend time in na­ture do­ing ab­so­lutely noth­ing at all. Some­times it’s im­por­tant to give the over­sat­u­rated senses a break, ob­serve things for what they are, with­out any emo­tion­ally charged con­no­ta­tions, and to con­sol­i­date peace of mind.

4 An im­por­tant as­pect of re­ju­ve­na­tion in­volves keep­ing all prac­tices aimed at heal­ing go­ing, con­sis­tently. Heal­ing feeds the need for self­p­reser­va­tion, and the strength emerg­ing from this feeds one’s per­cep­tion of the self, or self­es­teem, which in turn can re­ju­ve­nate you.
