To stay in shape, junk fast food, exercise

Junk food

Going to the gym and aerobics keep muscles and joints in shape.

Yoga helps in weight management and keeps one stress-free. Keeping fit is not an option but a necessity for a happy and healthy life.

n Palak Vesmawala, 8A

Lady Ratanbai and Sir Mathuradas Vissanji Academy

A healthy mind in a healthy body is my motto. But it requires self-discipline to practice what we preach. An important way of keeping in shape is consuming a healthy and balanced diet and adequate amount of water. We need to look at quality, not quantity, of the food we eat. Say no to junk food as it adds unnecessary calories without nutrition.

Stress contributes to obesity as a stressed man is not able to keep track of how much he eats.

A growing child needs to concentrate on studies. Leisure time should be spent doing yoga, meditation and playing outdoor games. Going to the gym strengthens muscles and bones.

However, excessive obsession is not healthy. One must accept body type and respect it.

"A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools."

Spanish proverb

n Sanaya Shenoy, VIII C, 11,

Staying in shape is all about making a good diet choice and following it. It is a simple combination of a healthy diet and good exercise. We need to pick up good habits and maintain them.

A brisk walk every day for around 45 minutes takes care of your body. It helps manage stress and reduce weight. Let us stay away from junk food. "We eat to live, not live to eat".

Let us motivate our family and friends to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Let us take advice/guidance from a fitness instructor. Yes, it would be difficult to start with but once we see the improvement in health, there is no looking back. Let us not forget, health is wealth.
