Who says what
Vice President of Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee, Rajiv Arora
He spoke on behalf of Rajasthan CM, Ashok Gehlot and said that one needs to care of his health to fight COVID-19 crisis. Based on the concept of ‘Pehla Sukh Nirogi Kaya’ (Health is Wealth), ‘Pehla Sukh- India Wellness Initiative’ will help provide health and wellness knowledge to people over the next 5 years.
Chief Mentor, Pehla Sukh, Narendra Bakshi
“‘Pehla Sukh-India Wellness Initiative’ comes at a very crucial time when the entire world is fighting a global pandemic. Following the vision and mission of the Rajasthan CM, the movement has garnered the support of the entire Silicon Valley besides CM’s support. The initiative is consistent with his vision to streamline the fight against COVID-19 with immunity building and disease prevention.
Director of Global Alliance of LifeStyle Medicine, Pankaj Vij
“The 6 pillars of Lifestyle Medicine are feet (exercise), forks (diet), fingers (whether we smoke or drink excessively) as well as sleep, stress and love (social connections). During COVID, chronic problems that were earlier dangerous in the long-term, have now become short-term dangers as weakened immunities are at the highest risk of contracting COVID-19.”
TFL -Training for Life, Dr. Sheela Nambiar
“Large amounts of sugar, processed food and oils combined with less exercise, heightened stress and anxiety affect our metabolic health which can lead to chronic diseases like diabetes, overeating, eating addictive foods and much more. More vegetables and lesser whole grains and cereals should be consumed. Similarly, a holistic exercise routine should be developed keeping in mind the 4 pillars of exercise – stamina, strength, flexibility and endurance.”
