    Beautify Yourself: Mind, Body, And Soul!

    The human body is a beautiful system where each part has its significance and specific job. We must nourish it properly to enhance and maintain the internal harmony of the organs, external appearance, and the beautiful mind.

    When we say to beautify yourself, we talk about looking after yourself – to your health needs, etc. When we think about “beauty”, we think about the external appearance of the body. But I believe beauty is made up of 3 aspects –

    • The beauty of mind and soul that is a happy
    • A positive mind
    • A fit body

    No doubt, it will consist of a beautiful soul, which creates positive vibrations and attract positive energy. But what if you are looking beautiful but suffering from diseases and stressful life, you will fall sick very soon. Then how will you nourish your body? Here we will talk about nutrients from the diet.

    Beautify Yourself In These Ways

     1. Beautifying The Body Internally

    It means nourishing our vital internal organs – heart, liver, kidneys, stomach, skin, brain, etc.

    1. Heart

    To keep your heart healthy, you should include soluble fibers in diet and omega 3 fatty acids. Apple and pear contain soluble fibers, which help to reduce the formation of blockages in the heart. In contrast, almonds and olive oil contain omega 3 fatty acids, which are useful to carry bad cholesterol from atherosclerotic plaques to the liver.

    2. Liver

    It is the main detoxifying factory for a healthy body. To keep the liver healthy, avoid eating processed foods, alcohol, pesticides (applied on fruits and vegetables), and over-consumption of drugs or medicines.

    3. Kidneys

    To keep kidney healthy, stop eating excessive salt, especially salted foods like chips and bakery items. It is important to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day. Avoid smoking and drinking too much alcohol as it might harm the proper functioning of kidneys.

    4. Stomach

    Excessive acid secreted by the stomach produces lots of toxins in the body. To keep the stomach healthy, avoid sleep deprivation, and irregular eating patterns, and junk foods like pizza, burger, vada pav, etc.

    5. Skin

    Skin is the largest organ of our body. Nourish your skin with lots of fresh fruits, water, and colorful vegetables. Keep your skin moisturized and hydrated. Avoid chemical-based products that might make your skin itchy, dry, and make it patchy.

    6. Brain

    Try to keep mind stress-free to avoid stress. Bad stress will bring imbalance and instability to your brain. It will affect your creative imagination and thought process, catapulting you into overthinking, depression, anxiety, and other health problems.

    It is external appearance, our look, and personality that creates the first impression. In the chart given below, we will see skin problems and nutrients to overcome them.

    Diet and exercise go hand in hand. Exercise helps us to stay fit, control weight, maintain a healthy metabolism, and improves the functioning of vital organs, improving our physical appearance. It also improves blood circulation to all body organs and provides nutrients to all body parts.

    3. The Beauty Of The Mind And Soul

    A stressful and unhappy mind cannot make a beautiful body. Stress and depression can easily be seen in the mirror. It causes obesity, heart diseases, stroke, hypertension, DM, etc. It also causes early aging, hair loss, pigmentation, etc. It means our internal and external beauty depends on our happy mind and vice versa. To keep your mind calm and happy, keep yourself surrounded by positive thinkers, indulge yourself in a hobby, try to read books, listen to music, dance, go for short trips, etc.

    After all, beauty is loving and taking care of yourself. So, love yourself, your body, and your life to make it more and more beautiful. Love your life, so that life loves you back.
