“Health is the greatest possession!” Lao Tzu, (better known as Laozi) – the famous Chinese Philosopher had said this quote. Well, by then he might have realised how people run after gaining wealth & materialistic gains while on the other hand royally ignore the importance to stay fit.

Alas! most of us still take health for granted. Good health is still largely an insignificant task or a lower priority work which often takes a backseat with more ‘important’ things of life to be done. We forget that good health is the core and every other thing is woven around it. The #HumFitTohIndiaFit Challenge began when Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore an ace Olympic Silver Medal winner shooting champion and now cabinet minister in Indian government with independent charge for Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports posted his video doing pushups in his office on twitter with the hashtag. He challenged celebrities and commoners in a novel initiative for people to get health conscious, maintain right weight & stay fit.

Here are few snippets of how celebs displayed their support for this fitness challenge:

Good health is a combination of a healthy physical body and healthy mental self. When one talks about staying fit, to maintain a right weight becomes very important. Inch loss, losing that extra flab happens automatically as one progresses on the roads towards a fitter self and gaining right body weight.

Here are five ways that are surely going to give you desired results and helping you with staying fit:

  • Go Take a Walk:

People often crib that losing weight is a very difficult task but this is a myth. To maintain a right weight the easiest way is to take a walk. People who have achieved a drastic transformation in terms of better bodies & staying fit vouch for taking up walking as a daily habit. Starting with a modest 1 km. walk to upto10-15kms. daily such people tell that it becomes easier day by day as the body gets better equipped for walking from inside.  Even after gaining right weight, one should continue this practice. 

‘Alcis  Sports’ is a homegrown sports brand with sportswear designed with a thought of being environmental friendly. The yellow colored ‘Wonder Tee’ (featured in the picture) is made from recycled polyester using about eight plastic bottles. The T-Shirt is soft and lighter than the normal ones.
  • Ditch the car and take up Cycling!

Be it cars or bikes, no doubt that they ease out your effort for reaching a destination like from home to work and back plus saves on a little time but cycling is way healthier. Moreover, it also saves your time, well in the sense that you do not have to put in extra time for a workout session. Cycling is one of the best cardio exercises which is why it is also mostly included in gymnasiums as a workout. It increases the stamina, and tones up the body while making you lose those extra calories.

  • Play a Sport:

This t-shirt weighs just 85 – 90 grams. It comes with Dynamic Drying finish — which doesn’t hold sweat and moisture for long, making the range extremely comfortable to wear and easy to maintain.

Apart from sports personalities, for whom sports is not anything else but a way of life; we commoners who are tied up in our daily home managing or working life can choose a sport and indulge in it as often as we can. The more strenous the sport is, the better. Like one can choose from any high energy involving sports like football, squash, lawn tennis, basketball, swimming, cricket etc. Sports are not only a source of recreation but also makes one mentally alert and helps to stay fit. 

  • Yoga session a Day, Keeps the Doctor Away:

The black calf length lower from ‘Alcis Sports’ excels as a sportswear due to its stretchability and the design is just wow with a white band detailing towards waistline, and textured finish near one leg’s end.

Yoga which finds its roots in India has been taken up by the foreigners like a treasured science to stay fit both mentally and physically. In India too, Yoga is fast catching up but it isn’t worth the hype until you take it up and practice daily. Yoga exercises are designed for the betterment of the whole body. It has breathing exercises, Surya namaskar, Asanas for different parts of body and meditation. The best part about practising yoga to stay fir it that the lost weight doesn’t relapse much even if one stops or takes a break from it.
