‘Nebulizers’ – the user-friendly breathing devices!

Parenting, well being - Anupriya kapur - December 22, 2018

Life is in the breath and he who breathes half, lives a half-life . Breathing keeps us alive. While we are not sure how much pure air we inhale, the bodily function of pumping air into the body continues to work incessantly as long as we are alive. However, rarely do we realize the importance of the respiratory system in our body. But a slight breathing problem can pinch you to the gut and that’s when we realize taking care of it is really important. I have faced several alarming issues in the past with my son Kabir when he was really young. Continue Reading

What I talk about when I talk about sleeping

Lifestyle, well being - Anupriya kapur - September 2, 2018

As we grow older and life becomes hectic, the one thing that gets compromised is sleep. I have seen that happen to almost everyone. Everyone says you need less sleep as you get older but that is just another forward and a fallacy. I like to believe that I am in the best shape of my life right now. And as counter-intuitive as it might seem, I work out the least now. It’s only 3-4 days a week 45 minutes to an hour.

Compare this to when I used to run. I used to run at least 45 minutes every day. Add to that, the build up to a marathon and you are talking about at least 8-9 hours of running every week. Yet my weight barely budged. I used to still feel fatigued and survived on coffee most days. Doesn’t seem right, right? I have done a lot of retrospective analysis on what the possible reasons for this could be. And believe me, it has nothing to do with functional training being better than running. The key difference I found between the two scenarios, in fact, was how much I used to sleep. Sleep is the key time that your body breaks down fat and repairs muscle. Now that I am sleeping more, I am more enthusiastic about my workouts and see better effects thereof. Here are a few things that I have discovered on my journey to find better sleep. Continue Reading

Keeping BP in check with new tubeless Omron Smart Elite HEM-7600T

well being - Anupriya kapur - May 7, 2018

Ask anyone to list out the 3 most prized possessions in life and am sure most of us will list family, health, money…agree? Sadly, chances are that we’re already negotiating on the health aspect for some more zeros in our bank accounts. Aren’t we all?

Rewind two generations; the simple and sound lifestyles our grandparents lived flash by. Active lives, zero screen menace. No Doremon robot to dish out gadgets to ease their work. No quick Ola for that lazy ride, No stress to maintain that impossible phone-life balance and no commuting that crazy traffic to be home on time to be by your child. Yes, that life was good, there was a meaning to the word harmony. Their 8 hour sleep never had annoying whatsapp pings to wake them. Continue Reading

Why Havells Water Purifier?

Reviews, well being - Anupriya kapur - January 13, 2018

Sometimes we take the most important things for granted. I recently went to the Havells water purifier lab and was amazed how I hadn’t paid attention to the one I have at home even though I’m well aware of increasing levels of pollution and impurities. There are multiple water purifiers available in the market. All water purifiers have their own USPs and all claim to give the best water quality. However, what you need to keep in mind is that all water purifiers come with different technical specifications and have certain basic requirements.

Some basics first – Continue Reading

Skin Care Routine

Lifestyle, well being - Anupriya kapur - January 9, 2018

I get quite a few mails/messages on what I do to take care of my skin. So, even though I think it’s a bit audacious of me (I say this because I don’t consider myself a skin care expert), I still decided to write about it. I have always had extremely dry skin but I didn’t care much till a couple of years back. I’m also outdoors a lot and have been told to reduce my activities as it will take a toll on my skin and hair but since that’s not an option, I thought that I will make a bit of an effort and create a routine to manage my skin instead. Again, I would urge you to see what works for your skin by trying different things, it took me many years to finally arrive at a routine that didn’t react and worked well with my skin.
