Did you know? Longer, deeper, and slower breaths can actually enhance a person’s lifespan. That is why larger animals like elephants that take long, slow and extended breaths have an extended lifespan. Noted wellness advocate, author and celebrity yoga trainer Ira Trivedi explains that every species of animal life in this world that has longer, slower breaths has a longer life, and the length of their breath measures their lifespan.

Speaking at the Outlook Money Retirement Expo 40After40, Trivedi revealed that Pranayama, or the ancient yogic practice of breathing, explains that the human body automatically starts breathing slower in moments of deep stress, which helps reduce stress.

Trivedi also discussed the five pillars of wellness: exercise, nutrition, sleep, relaxation, and positive thinking. She underscored the importance of incorporating these elements into daily life in manageable ways, emphasising that small steps can significantly improve health and happiness.

She also highlighted some practical strategies individuals can implement to enhance their physical, mental, and emotional health, regardless of their age or stage in life.

Trivedi spoke about the significance of incorporating regular exercise into daily routines. Whether it’s a simple walk around the block, a yoga session, or a full-body workout, engaging in physical activity is crucial for maintaining optimal health. Trivedi encouraged attendees of the retirement expo to find activities they enjoy and aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week.

She explained the importance of fueling the body with nutritious foods to support overall health. By consuming a diverse array of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats, individuals can provide their bodies with essential nutrients. Trivedi advised against excessive consumption of processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats, urging attendees to prioritise whole, nutrient-rich foods for long-term well-being.

Trivedi underscored the significance of quality sleep for physical and mental health. Adequate rest is essential for the body and mind to recharge and recover. Trivedi recommended aiming for 7-9 hours of sleep each night and establishing a consistent sleep schedule to promote healthy sleep patterns. Creating a calming bedtime routine and optimising the sleep environment were also suggested to enhance sleep quality.

She addressed the detrimental effects of chronic stress on overall health and encouraged attendees to adopt strategies for stress management and relaxation. Mindfulness meditation, deep breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques were highlighted as effective tools for reducing stress and promoting calm. Trivedi also emphasised the importance of self-care activities, such as spending time in nature or pursuing hobbies, to alleviate stress and restore balance.

Finally, Trivedi touched upon the importance of cultivating a positive mindset and prioritising mental health. Practices such as gratitude, optimism, and self-compassion were encouraged to promote a positive outlook on life. Trivedi urged attendees to seek support from loved ones or mental health professionals when needed and to engage in activities that promote mental well-being, such as socialising, pursuing hobbies, or seeking therapy.

She said that by incorporating these practices into daily life, individuals can lay the foundation for a healthier, happier, and more fulfilling life, regardless of their age or stage in life.
