“Sitting is new smoking”
Have you heard about the quote “sitting is new smoking”? sitting in a chair can cause many diseases related to spine and heart.

People are mending into a mindset where they are seeking approval for happiness. you cant be happy unless the picture of yours cant have expected likes.
Do we have a solution? Yes, we have.
- I don’t know how sports has been emitted out from our lifestyle. Please don’t give mobile phones to kids to play. Spend your time with kids play with them. You may need to go for a boring walk. Outdoor sports should be habituated at the age of 7-10 years; then their body helps to grow.
- Tell your maid to come for half of the month. Share the chores with your partner for half of the month. See how your romance blossoms.
- Don’t sit on couches at home. Sit on the floor in any yoga asana, which is comfortable for you.

Choices makes charecter
At last, all I can say ” its all about choices we make”. Our lifestyle shouldn’t be defined by the materialistic possessions and bank balance. It’s time to think what better can be given to our future generations else money.
