2. Proper Exercise
If one wants to live fit and healthy then one should also
take proper exercise. There are various exercises in Yoga
which cover almost every part of the body like neck
exercises, hand exercises, shoulder exercises, leg
exercises, chest exercises and tummy exercises. Walking
and stretching are good for the well being of the body.
Instead of using the lift, one should climb the stairs.
One should perform the simple exercises like stretching
the legs in front of you and your arms above your head
from time to time while you are at work and rotating the
head clockwise and anticlockwise six times at least once a
day. Various types of body exercises are twisting,
stretching, forward and backward bending. One must do
these simple exercises as per the individual health
capacity. But before practicing proper guidance is
required to do in a correct way.
3. Proper Diet
One should always take a proper and balance diet in order
to function smoothly. Some of the elements which must be
present in a proper and balance diet are Carbohydrates,
Proteins, Fats, Vitamins, Minerals, Water and Roughage (fibre).
Intake of extra calories makes muscles restive. High
protein food, smoking, alcohol, etc., are risk factors and
should be avoided as far as possible or at least limited.
4. Proper Breathing
Proper Breathing is also a very essential part for the
existence of a human life. There are certain conditions
for proper breathing. Firstly, one should follow breathing
very slowly and slowly. Secondly, inhale and exhale should
be equal i.e 6 x 6. People with deskbound jobs tend to
take in shallow breaths, reducing the level of oxygen
needed for the body to function properly. This leads to
sloth and slowing down of the body’s metabolic rate. Deep
breathing helps to maintain the required oxygen level,
increases blood flow and activates nerve centers.
5. Proper Relaxation
One must also devote some time to relaxation. One should
relax for at least some time. At least 10-12 minutes of
total muscle relaxation every day is a must. Sparing 20
minutes for oneself is not asking for too much. Some of
the ways by which one can relax is by putting on some
light and soothing music and laying down in a comfortable
position, then closing the eyes and loosening up the body
muscles consciously. Soon your body will feel lighter.
Concentrate you mind on something which is pleasing to you
(could be a person, object, anything). One should also
have an adequate sleep and rest for some time.

together. Yoga is the union of physical, mental and
spiritual self. It is the realization of the union of the
self and ultimately, the union of self with the divine. It
also brings the mind and body into a mutual state of well
being, balance, ease and vibrant alertness.
Pranayama means the art of controlling breath. Pranayama
is made up of two words, Prana and Ayama. Prana means
breath. Ayama means expansion or stretching which is
extension and control of breath. Pranayama must be
