5 Ancient Indian Habits to Boost Your Health

15 December 2021 |

We, the people belonging to the 21st century, have marked changing lifestyles at different stages in life. But, if you take a closer look, it has been deteriorating the health of every individual in many ways. In the name of modern life, people are working late at night, having inconsistent meals, eating processed and junk foods due to compelling situations. And, this has affected health inviting complicated medical issues that are sometimes difficult to cure. However, this was not the case during ancient Indian times.

People were healthy, energetic and happier compared to our lives today. So, what are some of the habits that you can incorporate into your routine life to boost your health? Here are five prominent ancient hygienic habits for good health that we have inherited from our ancestors.

 

1. Sitting on the Floor Cross-Legged for Eating Food

During ancient times, people sat down on the floor and ate their meals. It was a traditional good health habit that offers a wide range of benefits and boosts your health today. For example, sitting on the floor with crossed legs can improve the process of digestion.

Moreover, as you move down to take the food in your mouth and get back to the original position, it will energise the abdominal muscles to secrete the necessary acids for a quick digestion process.

Sitting on the floor and having a meal can also make you feel full sooner, thereby losing weight. It can also increase body flexibility, help you get up without any support, improve posture, and strengthen core muscles.

 

2. Cooking in Earthen Pots and Pans

 

Traditionally, earthenware is a mandatory constant in every Indian homes. It has a lot of benefits that require special mention. Food cooked in earthenware is extremely rich in iron, calcium, magnesium and other important minerals essential for a healthy body.

Also, as earthen pots retain moisture, you tend to use less oil for the food retaining the natural benefits of the ingredients. The heat level is also retained and circulated within the pot, retaining the food quality at the required consistency and nutrition standards.

Moreover, it makes the food healthier by maintaining the pH levels to the desired extent. The pots are alkaline, which reacts with the acid properties of the food, maintaining the right pH level. As a result, it will always add a special flavour to food that is unmatched to date! Ensure to cook on earthen pots and practice it as one of the important daily good habits for good health.

 

3. Surya Namaskar


Surya Namaskar is a salutation presented to the sun as gratitude in the practice of yoga. It involves a sequence of steps that help you feel fresh in the morning to make your day comfortable. Surya Namaskar tones your body, strengthens your muscles and especially the joints and helps in weight loss. It is also said to reduce the body's stress levels and combat insomnia to improve the quality of sleep. In women, it helps in regulating the menstrual cycle for good health.

When performed regularly, Surya Namaskar can increase metabolism, reduce blood sugar levels, eliminate stomach ailments and balance the nervous system. It is also an effective practice used in the treatment of frozen shoulders. However, to ensure receiving the full benefits of Surya Namaskar, you have to learn the steps correctly with proper execution.

4. Drinking Water from Copper Utensils

Drinking water in copper vessels is still practised in many Indian homes. It is because copper vessels can create a natural purification process. It can kill microorganisms, fungi, algae, bacteria and other harmful elements in water, making it perfect for drinking. Moreover, copper helps in cleansing the stomach and detoxing it for an improved digestion process.

The benefits of copper, such as the anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties in the water, can also help heal wounds faster. In addition, it boosts skin health by activating melanin production.

 

5. Saving money

Saving money for the future is an inherent practice among the ancient Indian people. How can it boost your health, though? Well, if you save money regularly, you make yourself and your family financially secure. It will help you live at peace which naturally reduces stress and boosts your health in the long run. Therefore, good health is central to managing difficult situations with confidence.

If you can combine good health with a well-defined financial status in the present with adequate planning for the future, you can tackle unexpected scenarios. And, the financial service organisations have introduced different products such as comprehensive life insurance plans to help you find better solutions to family commitments.

For instance, the Tata AIA insurance provides life cover, savings solutions. In addition, the life cover in life insurance plans can provide can help you secure your family’s financial future and accomplish long term financial commitments.

Changing lifestyles and demanding financial situations have introduced extreme distress in every individual's life. People have started looking into ways to organise their lives and practise healthy habits to ensure a happy living. In that order, ancient Indian habits are predominantly accepted for their best values.

In this article, we have seen some of the most important habits such as sitting on the floor and having food, cooking in earthen pots, saving money etc. These practices can boost your health if performed as a part of your daily routine.
