#IGiftWellness - A Healthy gift option for corporates and loved ones

#IGIFTWELLNESS 

The festivities are here; Durga Puja, Dussehra, Diwali all of it. 

The journey of lords and goddesses, the victory of good over evil, and the homecoming, all starting with the Navratris culminating in Laxmi Poojan and Bhaidooj. 

This is possibly the most exciting time of the year for India. Kids have vacations (and possibly the only time parents have 4-5 days off too), all offices are decorated, lamps illuminated in practically every household, crackers (in most parts of the country), and delicacies. 

This is also one of the biggest peaks of gifting in our country. From electronics to dry fruits to sweets, everything becomes a gift this season; from “let's have something sweet” to “Great Indian shopping festivals”. But not everything is so pretty. 

Let us take a look at what this festivity entails for our body. Many studies and researches claim this to be the worst time for our bodies. 

Dr. Niyati Parekh, Niyati Parekh, Associate Professor of Public Health Nutrition writes in an article “People gather around dishes that are rich, oily and deep-fried – and the desserts are either fried or soaked in thick, sugary syrups. South Asians have high rates of diabetes, and post-Diwali indulgence poses a threat to glycemic control, accounting for a spike in hospitalization rates. From alcohol hangovers to uncontrolled blood sugar levels and excessive insulin doses, the Diwali feast can wreak havoc on the body. To make matters worse, intermittent fasting to over-correct for excess calories takes its toll on metabolic regulation.” 

indushealthplus.com in their blog mention “It is an instant era and we are tempted to buy and eat outside food and sweets, which can lead to several health problems.” Among the many other things that we need to worry about during Diwali. thehealthsite.com also highlights the issues of weight gain and ill-effect on teeth. (Links given at the end of the article for anyone who wants to read more). 

Having said that, the tradition of gifting should not stop. The tradition of sweets and delicacies cannot stop. So why not add a little something that can make it less harmful?
