The One Surprising Thing Sonakshi Sinha, Neerja Birla, And Kanika Kapoor Have In Common Team healthhunt Team healthhunt
11 Nov 2018Array min read

Sonakshi Sinha, Kanika Kapoor, Amrita Raichand, Namrata Purohit, and Neerja Birla– they’re all big names in the country and they all share one BIG thing in common: They are all going to be at one place on the same day. Welcome to the Future of Wellness, 2018 – at the World Trade Centre on November 17th.

[:en]Now, are you wondering why these legends would choose to come together? To reiterate the importance of daily well-being… and of course, to be a part of the most immersive wellness experience India has ever witnessed! Read on to know more.Fact 1: India is #1 on the list of undernourished countries and in top 5 of the most obese nations.How can India be both obese and undernourished at the same time? That’s because weight is not always an accurate determinant of health. You can be skinny as a pencil, but still be at higher risk of diabetes or cardiovascular diseases than a person of twice your weight. The most preposterous myth to date is that being a certain weight automatically guarantees or negates health. Being overweight doesn't necessarily make you unhealthy! The latest research by scientists from the US and Germany confirmed the same. According to their study, people who are overweight have a fifty-fifty chance of having high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or elevated blood sugar levels.Let’s open our eyes and end the ‘fatphobia’ that is giving young girls body dysmorphia and eating disorders at the age when they should be most cheerful and carefree. Let’s teach them to love their body.Sonakshi SinhaSonakshi Sinha recently shared a video with the world, where she talked about putting a stop to body shaming, embracing your body and following your own journey. She emphasised on how weight does not determine a person’s worth. To that end, she will be at the Future of Wellness to share her personal journey with all the wonderful women (and men) out there. If you’ve ever doubted yourself or felt like you were unworthy of love just because you were a certain colour, size, race, or religion, come join us at the Future of Wellness!Fact 2: Lifestyle diseases are responsible for over 61% of all deaths in the country!Did you know that scarily rampant lifestyle diseases like diabetes, cholesterol, and hypertension are preventable to a huge extent? The food and lifestyle choices you make have the power to fight your genes and decide your health. Even mental illnesses, as researchers are slowly beginning to realise, can be alleviated through a change in diet and exercise routine. There is literally nothing your body cannot help you accomplish, if you only tried a little bit.Amrita Raichand and Namrata Purohit are coming to help you in that. While Amrita Raichand will be giving tips on how to incorporate nutrition into your and children’s favourite meals; Pilates Maven Namrata Purohit will tell you how to sneak in time for exercise in your hectic schedule. So, don’t you miss it!Fact 3: Over 50% Indians eat an unbalanced, unhealthy diet every day!This could mean multiple things, one of which is accelerated ageing due to an excess of free radicals in the body.Kanika KapoorNow, who doesn’t know Kanika Kapoor?! We all know that she’s a beloved Bollywood singer. But what most people don’t know is that Kanika is a mother of 3 healthy, happy children! Surprised? If you’re wondering how she manages to stay so youthful and vivacious, then the Future of Wellness is your answer. Catch us in a candid conversation with the one and only Kanika Kapoor!Fact 4: India is the most depressed country in the world.In a country where mental illnesses are still considered a taboo, this doesn’t come as a surprise. According to the 2015-16 National Mental Health Survey (NMHS), every sixth person in India needs mental health help of some sort, especially adolescents.Neerja BirlaNeerja Birla through her venture MPower is creating awareness about mental illnesses and providing mental health support. Additionally, she looks after The Aditya Birla Integrated School, a school that accepts children suffering from dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), with open arms. She is the latest addition to the Children's Wellness Panel and will be sharing her thoughts on the connection between children's wellness and mental health at the Future of Wellness.Pooja Duggal“Being healthy isn't as complicated as people make it to be. It just takes simple little steps.”                                                         ~Pooja Duggal, Certified Health Coach, Founder and CEO healthhunt Pooja Duggal, Certified Health Coach, Founder and CEO healthhunt, believes that each step adds up, no matter how tiny it is. Through this event, our team is set to take a little step that we hope will prove to be a huge leap for the humankind. We've been burning the midnight oil so that you and your loved ones are always glowing with excellent health.Join us on the 17th of November, 2018 at the World Trade Centre, Cuffe Parade, Mumbai, and have a glimpse into the healthier and happier world, we read about in fairy tales.All in all, whether you’re a teenager or parent, a manager or leader, an extrovert or introvert, an outdoor person or a homebody, the Future of Wellness is for everyone!When: November 17, 2018 (9 AM - 7 PM)Where: World Trade Centre, Mumbai[:]

Children’s Day: 3 Wellness Habits Every Parent Should Inculcate In Their Child Pooja Duggal Pooja Duggal
13 Nov 2018Array min read

Parenting is no cakewalk. You need to provide the best for your child, while managing your hectic life. It can get confusing and difficult. Especially, when it comes to looking after the overall well-being of children. As a health coach and parent, I feel it’s my responsibility to help you out with my humble knowledge and hands-on experience.

[:en]On the occasion of #ChildrensDay, I would like to share 3 wellness habits I am inculcating in my baby, and you should inculcate in yours:1. Introduce your baby to yoga safely introduce your baby to yogaYou might be surprised to know this, but you can safely introduce your baby to yoga. I truly believe that babies are natural yogis and instinctively do certain yoga poses. Giving them a small push every day can have many long-term benefits.Yoga isn’t merely a physical activity. In addition to helping the child develop fine motor skills, it works like magic in calming them when they’re cranky. I do yoga with my baby, Aramnaya, and he loves to imitate me (all babies love to imitate adults)!If you still haven't introduced yoga to your baby, try it today! Pick a bright coloured yoga mat and block off 20 minutes per day, to start this routine.2. Give them a nutritious startparents feed their childrenOne of the best gifts we can give our children is a strong nutritional start. But, sadly, most parents don’t realise it. I’m not saying that they don’t want the best for their kids. All parents do. But they presume that the child is ‘young’ and he/she won’t like the taste of the healthy foods and will eat lesser than they want to.I have seen so many parents feed their children instant noodles, frozen fries, just because they ‘think’ the child won’t enjoy vegetables or ‘ghar ka khana’, as much. They fail to understand that the younger the child is, the easier it is to develop their tastes and inculcate healthy eating habits. Moreover, during the first three years of life, the brain also grows at its fastest rate, and this is why it's so important to ensure proper nutrition.Children will simply not know which foods are healthy, unless we as parents take up the responsibility to teach it to them. The simplest way to introduce healthy food to our children is by focussing on wholefoods; completely minimising processed foods and totally eliminating super-processed foods.I make my baby eat the same food, my husband and I eat: healthy and home-made. He relishes it and often asks for more than we serve him. As per snacking is concerned, he has never demanded a pack of chips or cookies, instead, he prefers to munch on soaked almonds (they’re easier to digest than raw almonds) and dates, both of which are a powerhouse of nutrients.PS: If your child is younger than 5, I recommend chopping the soaked almonds and deseeding dates, before serving it to children, to avoid the risk of them swallowing the whole thing and getting choked.3. Encourage them to go out and playOutdoor playtimeNo level of technology can replace spending time in nature! Outdoor playtime encourages unstructured activities, which helps children in building their imagination and most importantly, simply be kids! Moreover, when children spend time outdoors, they get adequate oxygen and sunlight. While oxygen helps keep their spirits up, sun exposure is essential to build and maintain their vitamin D levels.I make sure that baby A goes out for playdate every day. We run on the grass, laugh, and roll. I reminisce my childhood with him. You too should do it with your child. It’s more therapeutic than you can imagine.I’ll be joining the Children’s Wellness Panel at ‘The Future Of Wellness’, and will be sharing more tips there. If you’re in Mumbai, drop by at the World Trade Centre on the 17th of November, to catch me live and to be a part the most premier health and wellness event.Not in Mumbai? Fret not, we’ll be going live on our Instagram and Facebook pages. You can join us there.[:]

Diwali 2018: Expert Tips To Get Rid Of Festive Weight Gain Pooja Duggal Pooja Duggal
07 Nov 2018Array min read

Diwali is synonymous with lights, joy, and celebrations. It’s the time of the year when every day is a cheat day. With sweets, food, and cocktails all around, it’s hard to not fall for the temptation, and frankly, it’s the festive season, no one should be denied the pleasure of all those lip-smacking Diwali feasts. However, at times, this Diwali binge can take a toll on your health and waistline.

[:en]

If that’s the case with you, fret not, the damage can be un-done. Here are 5 tips that can restore your fitness levels and help you get out of the Post-Diwali Syndrome:

1. Drink a lot of water

Drink a lot of water All those fried treats, sweets, and cocktails can leave you bloated and dehydrated. So, it’s very important for you to consume enough water. Since the weather has started to get cooler, you could also have warm water. Warm water doesn’t only help you detox, but also helps in melting the stored fat and flushing it out. Sipping on herbal teas throughout the day is also a great option to soothe your taste buds and mind during the detox spree.

2. Exercise

During Diwali, you might have missed out on many gym session just to attend a Diwali party or probably do ghar ki safai, but now it’s time to strictly adhere to your workout routine, or design one if you don’t already have it. Light and moderate-intensity exercises could easily be done at home, in case you’re looking to practise High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), I recommend, you only do it under the guidance of an expert.Eat seasonal fruits and vegetables

3. Eat seasonal fruits and vegetables

Seasonal fruits and vegetables are extremely rich in nutrients and boost your immune system. When your immune system is strong and kicking, you’re more energetic, and your body burns more calories. Use fresh and organic spices to enhance the flavour of your food and fasten up the fat-burning process.

4. Try our ultimate detox drink recipe

ultimate detox drink recipeThis amazing detox drink with lemon, ginger, and turmeric will not only help with better digestion and improved liver function, it is also an effective anti-inflammatory drink, and can help with joint pain, lethargy, and yes, even weight loss. Have this detox drink on am empty stomach to reap maximum benefits.

5. Sleep well

Partying until the wee hours during Diwali might be one the reasons for you having put on extra weight during the festive season. When you’re sleep deprived, the level of Leptin hormone, responsible to make you feel full, goes down. As you feel hungry, more than you should, you eat more; this leads to an increase in weight. To avoid feeling hungry all the time, take at least 6-8 hours of sleep.I hope these tips will prove helpful for you and you’ll incorporate them in your everyday routine, as well. Wishing you a happy, safe, and green Diwali![:]

Write for Us

Mental Wellbeing

Today, what we all need most is peace of mind, and mind you, it doesn’t come easy. To find tranquility, you must let go, and to learn to do that, you must embark on a journey for your own sake. We know that being healthy means so much more than just a healthy body. It means a healthy mind – a state of complete mental wellbeing. We welcome personal experiences, expert views, meditation techniques, and other holistic ways of achieving mindfulness.

Nutrition

The human body is perfectly designed by nature, and how we fuel it is important. In order to climb the Everest, backpack around the globe, get that promotion, break the world record for baking the largest apple pie, or anything else that you want to do in life – it is important that you and your body are on the same page. And surprisingly enough, of all aspects of health, nutrition is the most ignored or misinterpreted. No more fad diets, ‘magical detoxes’, or weight-loss powders. Nutrition is simple science...and lots of taste. Submissions within this category will include articles on health through foods, recipes, juices and smoothies, and natural and sustainable ways to achieve weight goals.

Fitness

We walk, run, swim, cycle, dance, workout – all to stay fit. Even though the end goals may be different for everyone, fitness, at the end of the day, means something that promises a healthy, fulfilling life. It means training your body to do better each day in whatever ways you want it to. Submit within this category if your article is to do with any form of physical fitness like yoga, running, muscle building, a success story, or any aspect of physical health.

Organic Beauty

Most of what you put on your skin is absorbed right into the bloodstream (Need proof? Think nicotine patches, or birth control patches). This is why a lot of the world is going back to their roots. Think organic. Think of all gifts of nature you could use, that could enrich your body, without all the chemicals and preservatives. Organic beauty is taking a stand for yourself – it is a lifestyle. If you have written about hair, skin, natural remedies, ayurveda, or alternate therapies, this is where you need to be.

Love

Love for a friend, family member, or lover – all such profound, complex emotions and connections. Oh love, love, love! It has the power to heal the soul, make a saint out of a criminal, and basically, just bring a smile to your face even on the most dismal of days. There are no rules, no laws, no policies, and absolutely no one manual when it comes to relationships. But oh, wouldn’t we all like a little help once in a while? Our broad categories include relationships, friendship, dating, sex, parenting, and other aspects of love.
