TV actress Helly Shah shares her sleep mantras
— Drink more room temperature water and get your full quota of sleep each night. You’ll get rid of built-up toxins, drop weight and have clear skin. Along with this, you’ll get rid of dark circles and puffiness.
— Eat more fresh fruit through the morning.
— Consume more vegetables, specially the darker,
more colourful ones.
— Avoid fried and battered foods.
— Avoid the whites – white flour, white bread, white rice, potatoes, pasta and sugar. Use better substitutes such as nachni, bajra, jowar or quinoa for baking your bread, making chapattis and rice. Sweet potatoes can substitute potatoes and coconut sugar, malitol or jaggery can substitute white sugar.
— Avoid wheat flour due to the bloating and gluten intolerance that it often gives rise to.
— Foods with a shelf life will tend to be unhealthy and will lead to weight gain. This is because their shelf life is extended via the use of oil, preservatives, chemicals or salt. These include chewda, chaklis, papad, pickles, biscuits, khakras, bhel etc.
— Freshly made snacks such as wraps, salads, sandwiches or just a whole fruit are far better.
— Eat less at each meal but eat more frequently, grazing throughout the day rather than going with 3 square meals. The square meals will make you round!
— Get an hour of exercise each day, perhaps first thing in the morning or last thing in the evening, so it doesn’t get in the way of your busy wedding planning schedule. Your workout should have a large cardiovascular component of about 45-50 minutes, and 10-15 minutes of a muscle toning segment.
Most importantly, don’t forget to truly enjoy the time up until the fairy tale ending!
