while waiting for the results I ended up reading quite a few blogs. Last two
weeks have been taking away a lot of time from me so I am catching up with my
reading over the weekend. Vidya Sury’s post on toxic lifestyle got me completely.
When I read the post I asked myself am I also leading a toxic lifestyle? And
the answer was quite evident. A BIG YES.
says you are leading a toxic lifestyle if you say yes to the followings
1. Fast food is your main source of food
2. Your computer/phone screen has you mesmerized
3. Exercise is not on your list of priorities
4. You don’t believe in regular sleep habits
when I asked myself the same questions some of the answers were yes. I’ll tell
you my answers.
is not my main source of food but I do love fast food and street food and like
to indulge once or twice in a week.
and phone screen definitely have me mesmerized. I am either with my laptop
throughout the day and when I turn it off at night I am hooked to the phone or
tab doing something or the other.
very excited about exercising but that excitement is only with the idea
going to do this or that etc etc. I hate to wake up early and get dressed for
the gym. The gym is within the complex but I still have never visited it. I
swim once in a while. I was taking a bus to work some time back which resulted
in a lot of walking but lately I am not even doing that. I am just driving to
work. So absolutely no workout.
believe in regular sleep habits and I try to go to bed early by 11. (that’s
early by my standards) I wake up early as well by 6AM. That’s because my
househelp comes that time and I leave for work by 745AM. So that’s pretty
just sat back and thought what sort of a lifestyle do I lead? Boring? Active?
Healthy? Unhealthy? What? I still couldn’t figure it out much. But there are
some things that have done lately (that’s
about for 6-7 months) that makes me think maybe I am leading a mixed lifestyle –
if there is something like that.
have given up on aerated water and carbonated drinks long time back. It’s not
because of the sugar factor it’s because continuous intake of carbonated water
decays you from within. It affects your teeth and bones. And I definitely want
to have my teeth left for munching something when I am 80! You tube is filled
with videos of the side effects of colas. But here is a very nice actually
alarming video. Check it out guys.
I Said No to Coffee
and went Green
Bengali is crazy about their tea and are very particular about their blend. I
am, on the other hand, not a tea drinker at all. I find it tasteless and don’t
understand why people drink tea! Okay don’t shout at me – that’s what I feel. I
was hooked on to coffee and used to love Black coffee, espresso, Irish and what
not. But my New Year resolution was no to coffee and I can happily say I have
not broken it. I switched over to green tea instead. I don’t find a taste in
green tea either other than it being bitter if it’s not hot. But I like that
warm liquid going in.
I am also quite a foodie and don’t like all vegetarian menu at all. I also
hated salads till a long time. I mean the plain green salad and not the mayo-loaded
Ceaser salad or Russian Salad. But now I ensure I have tomatoes and cucumber if
not anything else.
Bored of McDonalds and
quite literally. I am just too bored of McDz and KFC burgers, chicken, fries
etc. I do not find any taste in it any more. I don’t even remember when I last
went to either of them. So the burger and fries combo is out from my system for
a long time.
that doesn’t mean I am not having meat or fish and turned a herbivore and am
only having salads. I do enjoy meat but now I am including veggies as well.
I am on the borderline of toxic lifestyle and okay-ish lifestyle I guess. Which
lifestyle are you leading? Let me know.
