I am Simran, a Crazy Foodie, a Dance Enthusiast, and a F.R.I.EN.D.S Lover. I intend to share with you my story of shifting to a healthier and happier life. I was an average built child, but at a very young age, I encountered with Thyroid. There were noticeable symptoms, the most prominent one was instant weight gain. My family got to know about it when I was a kid and my medication started immediately, and it was a turning point in my life.

Like any other seemingly different child, I wasn’t spared by teasing and name-calling. But what motivated me to initiate a change was a different reason. We all have the strength and power to do anything in life and if we want, so this was the change I had to bring.

So here I am sharing my Personal Tips and Experiences to Maintain a Healthy Life


Feeling bad because of getting teased gives you anger and hence temporary motivation. The reason to bring a change in yourself should be intrinsic and because of a better idea. In my case, I realized I wasn’t able to do usual things effectively like other kids, like cycling, running for a great distance, which made me shy away from sports camps and other athletic activities at my school. This reason made me stay motivated until I was able to feel healthy.

What Kind of Work Out

Since we all have different body types and interests, the answer to this question is subjective. I initiated with dance and aerobics because it made exercise fun for me, which helped me adopt it in my lifestyle. Anything you don’t enjoy requires a lot of determination and pushing yourself and is not feasible to follow in the long run.

Choosing a workout routine that your body likes is always helpful. If you find yourself confused about your interest, I suggest you start with cardio and slowly add strength and weight training to your workout routine. Try new things so that your body doesn’t become too routine.

Proper Diet

Workout without diet modification gives only 20-30% results. Again the principle of comfort applies here. There are very few people who can reduce their diet to a minimum level. I’m not one of them. For a foodie like me, it is always impractical to follow such a diet. What I do is-

  • Avoid having junk food, taking twice a month is fine.
  • Eating small quantities in short intervals helps in avoiding overeating.
  • Proteins are useful and for a vegetarian like me, having roasted channa as a snack, pulses in lunch is perfect.
  • At night, the digestion process slows down, so avoid curd, pulses, rice at night. A full bowl of vegetables with one chapati before 8 is enough. You may feel a little unsatisfied initially, but trust me, your body doesn’t require more than that. You’ll get habitual in a week.
  • Having a lot of lukewarm water or even normal water helps. Coldwater is not suitable for anyone, try to consume “Ghada Water.”
  • Drinks like jeera water, lemon, and honey water are suitable for your body and skin and helps in easy detox.

Duration of Transformation

Don’t burden your body by giving yourself unrealistic or too aggressive targets. The body can be healthy only when change happens in a phased manner. The human body takes it’s own time, giving that time, having patience with constant effort helps.


Being consistent with the routine is a must. Flexibility is always okay, but giving it up altogether, after attaining a set target, isn’t a smart thing to do after all the effort. Just like any other thing, you can put a habit of working out for 21 days continuously. Because when you do that, your body becomes habitual of it.

Self Love

It is a small term with deep meaning. The first step towards self-love is self-acceptance. Everyone is born with flaws, no human is perfect. Accepting this leads to the way of peace and satisfaction. Directing energy towards your goals is the way to bring a change. These positive changes lead a person to something higher than satisfaction.


Everyone has goals in life that they wish to attain as soon as possible. But for a healthy life, relaxing is as important as working. I am not appreciating laziness and procrastinating behavior but doing work with a more peaceful mind and soul and enjoying and appreciating small things in life. Once you start feeling a difference in yourself, there’s no going back. A healthy lifestyle is an addiction, an addiction that we all should have.
