The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the usual routines of lives, hauling over our lifestyle habits and subjecting us to a greater risk of catching as well as worsening existing lifestyle-related diseases. These diseases are some bodily and psychological ailments that are primarily based on the day to day habits of people. These habits are activities that push us towards a sedentary routine which can possibly land us with a number of health issues. This in turn can lead to certain chronic non-communicable diseases that can have near life-threatening consequences.
Gandhi once said, “Everyone must be their own scavenger, so long as you do not take the broom and the bucket in your hands, you cannot make your towns and cities clean. A clean body cannot reside in an unclean city.” A healthy lifestyle is a habit that has to be cultivated with regular practice.
Mahatma Gandhi was a source of great knowledge. One who studies Gandhi closely will learn that his principles teach us the art of living a healthy lifestyle. His idea of Ahimsa and Satya are two pillars that set a man free from evils created by society and imposed by self.
