Our biological systems are very closely tied to our emotional and mental state. Bringing passion back to our life changes all the chemistry and physiology of our body.
Living with your passion, doing what you love to do and adding compassion to your day to day work tie you more closely to your true self and improve your health. As a part of Mindful Living Club, We promote developing or reviving old hobbies.

Thinking about losing weight? I know you have your own reasons. Let me add one more to the list!!!
My association with Deepak Chopra goes way back to my college days. I knew him as a doctor who is trying to do some stuff with yoga and self healing with Ayurveda; an ancient science of healing and medicine. Deepak had not been able to capture my attention that much earlier. The only connection I felt was his origin.It was 2010 and I had taken a project which required me to drive several hours each day, It was a big change for me. I took the shelter of audio books. I visited my neighborhood library several times and was little puzzled at the limited selection of these books. This is when I got introduced to Deepak’s book on holistic healing.One of the first book I listened was “Ageless body Timeless mind ‘. I started listening to them with some hesitation but as I listened, my road trip to work became interesting voyages into a mysterious world of quantum physics, ayurveda, human anatomy and basic philosophy of “just being” and discovery of meaning of true happiness. After that point, I have listened or read almost all his books and am a great follower of his work. He has influenced my lifestyle and life philosophy immensely. His philosophy brings Religion, Science, Nature and Human together and pave the path to true happiness and success for the common man.
I am a person of science and logic and his books made it so scientific to understand the ancient principles of Ayurveda, It made so much sense why body should be able to heal itself. It made so much sense to treat body as whole when treating ailments instead of treating each organ as a separate entity as today’s medicine system is heading towards. Deepak’s work is not just about healing but also about finding success and true happiness just by incorporating basic simple principles in your life. His book “Seven Spiritual law of Success” has inspired my program and I have incorporated several principles from it in my program. These principles take away the constant stress common people experience in their daily life due to their egoistic nature.
Just Become Aware and Be Healthy
We live in a capitalist society. Businesses are looking out more for thier profits than interest of common people like you and me. Market is full of products that are not safe or healthy for your body, mind and soul. They have made to the market/shelf by passing some regulations (I assume so) marginally or through finding some loopholes in the system (You know what I mean)!!!
Here is the mission I move forward with through my Mindful Living Club. I want lead people to a path of healthy lifestyle and want to unveil the truth about political, social and spiritual aspect of food and eating landscape.There are several factors why a common person is not able to eat in a healthy fashion. My blog covers of some of these reasons. Lot of it is tied to lack of awareness, some tied to political landscape behind agriculture and food distribution and some to our lifestyle that has made eating a mechanical activity. Today eating gives us calories but not the nourishment of body, mind and soul.
Through my club, I would like to introduce a lifestyle that is pure and natural and easy to adopt & agree with your true self. A lifestyle that is full of meals that are appetizing, wholesome, nutritious and satisfying. A life style which bring you in touch with you true self and your true value system and with your purpose in life.It will help you cope up with various health conditions.
