Staying physically fit can be a challenge during these times of lockdown and work from home. The bigger challenge, however, is how to keep the happiness quotient up, despite limited social interactions and life out of normal. BlueAura.Fit is an online program that provides content for wellness to practice at home.
The Global Wellness Institute defines wellness as the active pursuit of activities, choices, and lifestyles that lead to a state of holistic health. Wellness is more a way of living than a time-bound program. Four-week programs or six-week programs do help. They are the first step into introducing positive habits. However, these habits need to be sustained long term.
Unlike fitness or mindfulness or spiritual retreats, wellness is multi-dimensional. Wellness is an awareness of how to live life and enhance every dimension of the being – the mind, body, and spirit. BlueAura.fit hosts content from genres such as Tai Chi, Yoga, Pranayama, and various workouts for the body.
“Meditation for the mind and spirit; Exercise and Diet for the body; Sleep for rejuvenation, are the four pillars for wellness,” says Jevon Devon, Director of Customer Success at BlueAura.Fit.
Emotional distress, anxiety, depression, disrupted sleep patterns have been on the rise since the pandemic’s spread in the past eight months. Simple exercises called Pranayama in Sanskrit are effective in relieving stress, improving mental health, and physical stamina. Research quoted by the National Institutes of Health mentions that practicing Pranayama influences the parasympathetic nervous system and improves mood.
“Exercise is not just about appearance and aesthetics. It is also about how good we feel. Tai Chi, improves the appearance (because the body is healthy) but also affects the feeling of wellbeing (because the mind is happy),” adds Jevon Devon. Think about it – the body and mind are not disparate. If the body is not in a state of health, happiness is elusive. Research at Harvard Medical School indicates that Tai Chi classes are almost like therapy, touching the body, mind, and spirit. This is called the biopsychosocial approach by the medical community.
