Back to Life

Well, after reading this page, I couldn't stop myself from writing at least a few truths that may be inspiring to some one who may be going the wrong way just because he/she have not met with the worst so far. First of all let me introduce my self.

I am a Senior Software Engineer by post and working in the software field for last 10 years. As in most cases, the job is having tight schedules, overnight brain storming, lots of junk food, treats and some times we do sleep also!!! I was enjoying my work life until the day, when I felt like I was sinking. I was sweating, my whole body was feeling so weak...I asked for my colleagues' help and reached a nearby hospital. The doctor checked and found nothing unusual. After doing an executive checkup, it was found that my BP, Sugar, Triglyceride and Cholesterol levels were not normal. Doctor suggested to control the diet and doing some exercise. I used to wake up by 7 and reach to work by 8.30, 20 kilometers to to find time in morning for work out? Come back home at night... :(?

After that I started waking up by 5.30 in the morning. As in the article, I used 2 mobile phone alarms and asked for my support from my wife. Once it became a routine, I found that even alarm was not necessary for me to wake up by 5.30! I used to do the sun salutation which is a very good exercise for the whole body. I became very active at work, my health problems have vanished. It is the combined effect of routine life, getting up early, going to bed early, doing good exercise, taking at-least 2 liters of water, involving in devotional activities in morning and before sleep. But of-course everything started with getting up early...

I learned a few things :
1. When we really try to find time for something, we will be having time.
2. Practice can not be replaced by anything else.
3. Taste is given to food, so that we can eat it. But taste is not enough to keep good health.
4. Need of an arranged and routine life.
5. God gives you some pain, to teach you good lessons.

Thank GOD.. for giving the pain... and for giving enough wisdom to understand and learn from that.
