‘How you feel is what you reflect.’ We have heard this statement many times. But never paid attention to the insight it gives us. It is difficult to stay positive in these times where you are restricted to go out, and are always surrounded by negative news. This can be seen on your face. When we say ‘Follow these easy steps for bright skin’ we do not mean a fairer skin. The colour is not important, health is. The major component of a healthy skin is the natural glow you radiate from within. There are many habits that affect our skin over the time; we often don’t realize how our urban lifestyle is stealing the charm from your skin: Dehydration– we take our body’s hydrating capacity for granted. Intake of fewer liquids, especially in India’s summer season actively encourages the body to several problems, one of them being unhealthy skin. Poor diet– with our uncertain lifestyle, our body tries to adapt to the changes but it has its own limitations. Sleep deprivation– Late night binging on Netflix and negative thoughts are taking over our sleep cycle, resulting in dark circles, not-so-fresh skin and open pores Stress – We understand that … Continue reading Is your skin healthy?

The times of social distancing, school interruptions, quarantines, work-from-home has led to anxiety disturbing sleep cycles for a vast majority of us.

Stressed before going to bed? As much as we enjoyed work-from-home in the early stage, now the concept is growing exponentially, and everlasting. The covid-19 lifestyle has not only affected our diet or exercise routine, but has a vigilant effect on our sleep cycle as well. Bedroom is your place of retreat from all the problems and world troubles. You engage all your efforts in decorating your bedroom space, so you can come back to a place that comforts you. With the lockdown, our bedroom has become not only a place to sleep but also, work and eat. This is not healthy! It is important that we don’t let these thoughts disrupt our sleep sanctuary. Here are few tips that might be helpful to structure your sleep graph and flatten that curve: Daytime tips Avoid intake of caffeine or alcohol, especially later in the day. This will just create a disparity in your sleep cycle. Watch out for an intense workout later in the evening. Develop a routine for your lifestyle to set your body in rhythm. Don’t skip meals; eat in time, even on weekends get up at your usual time. Taking naps in middle of the day keeps … Continue reading Good night, sleep well!
The relentless, never-ending home chores have taken a toll on our back. With the increasing activities of the household, the stress is also increasing, eventually traveling to our backs. “How to relieve back pain” was the most asked question in Tattva’s reach out to our audience on “What do they want to learn in massage and acupressure techniques?” When we researched, we found that about 80% of middle-aged experience lower back pains and we immediately set ourselves on a mission to try to solve this for the world – remotely, through our wellness webinar series AnyBody Can Massage. Now, this pain is not the only cause of jhadoo-pochhaa effect. There are many reasons behind it that we often overlook: Not many of us have a reliable work station setup at home. We are either turning our bedroom space into the work space or the living area our work stop. This results in an inappropriate sitting posture and finally giving stress to our back muscles. Even if our back manages to bear the stress we are giving it through bad sitting posture, the constant movement of work-from-home to work-at-home is not giving us an optimum time to give it a rest. In the … Continue reading Get ‘Back’ in Action

Technology is an enabler in our daily lives. While the latest gadgets and devices are making our lives more organized, making the world a smaller place and helping us solve more problems, faster, they are also causing high amount of strain onto our physical and psychological selves. Our mental health is getting acutely affected with close exposure the “Instagram” version of people’s lives. That feeling of ‘inadequacy’ or desire to lead a more ‘fun life’ can cause unprecedented strain on our emotional capabilities. On an average, we are probably spending 11 hours of a day staring at some kind of screen, be it laptop, TV or your cell phone. We usually begin our day with one screen and end while watching another. Our travel time is also our screen time (of course we are referring to the pre-lockdown times). Our human bodies were not designed for handling such large screen times. It will probably take our bodies another 100,000 years to adapt to the change that has impacted our bodies swiftly over the last decade or so.
