Fitness is not about being better than someone else it’s about being better than you used to be.
Health is a blessing and its importance and usefulness has been made necessary by comparing it with a ‘Thousand blessings’ (Tanddrusti Hazaar Niyamat Hain) it’s a well known saying ‘ Sound mind remains in a sound body’ only a healthy person can take society forward and maintain his identity and fight for his rights.
Exercise not only changes our body it changes our mind, our attitude and our mood, when health is lost everything is lost. Give yourself the same care and attention that we give to others and watch yourself bloom mindset, habits and routines are the building blocks for success towards your wellness goals.
