How Are You Feeling Today?
In the midst of Melbourne’s cold, dark and viral winter, the master of mind-body medicine, physician trained in brain chemistry Deepak Chopra is coming to town to run the Neuroscience of Enlightenment conference.
His message is clear: aim for SUPER HEALTH by making careful lifestyle choices.
Deepak Chopra rests his foundations of Well-being on 6 supporting columns:
1: GOOD DIET
A diet aimed at reduction of inflammation linked to chronic disease and obesity
Add prebiotics such as oats, bran, bananas, not strained fresh orange juice
Include probiotics for gut health for example active yogurt, pickles and sauerkraut
Aim to eat fresh unprocessed food
Limit snacking to measured portions
Be mindful eater-eat only when hungry and stop once full
Be continuously active throughout the day, aim to devote half of lunch break to movement
Good quality sleep is vital for health and well-being.
Sleep disorders have been linked to chronic disease such as high blood pressure, unstable diabetes, Alzheimer’s etc.
Relax and wind down before sleep in dark and comfortable surroundings
Control stress by reducing multitasking and try to do one thing at a time
Attempt to leave work on time and do not bring work home.
Neutralise negative emotions by adopting positive outlook
Try to form a routine
Meditate daily for 10 min
Take 10min of your lunch break to sit alone outdoors with eyes shut.
Join meditation group
Take control of your feelings, because well-being depends upon happiness
Write a list of things that make you happy and do at least one of them on daily basis.
These changes, according to Chopra, one small step at a time, may help you to boost wellness and delay genetic ageing, which is the subject of his latest book ‘Super Genes’. Deepak has collaborated with Prof.Rudolf E.Tanzi, a global authority on genetics to present a bold update on our genes.
