                      SKIPPING TO GOOD HEALTH  

Exercise is the vital essence of human body. It can be in any form, may be swimming, rowing, aerobics, to give you better and all round body development. When we talk about ‘EXERCISE’, instantly our mind strikes of ‘muscular movement’, which helps in improving blood circulation and to strengthen the heart and skeleton, it involves oxygen intake and outdone known as ‘CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM’. Such kind of cardiovascular activity is ‘jumping through a skipping rope’.

    Jumping rope is an intense and effective activity. Skipping can actually tone the muscles of upper as well as lower body. Besides it promotes definition of abdominal muscles and reduces cellulite, such as marching and running in place while turning rope alongside your body. According to a research 10 min. of jumping is equal to 30 min. running at 6mph . It burns calories at a good pace of 150 lb for 120 times jump.
Rope jumping involves your co-ordination, speed and agility-which can vastly improves performance in other sports. Jumping rope is a
style workout thus developing power speed and endurance in your calves.
    If you are looking up for fat burning, try rope jumping in morning before your breakfast. Always give enough time for warm up and cool down, get to the principles of warming the muscles for few minutes before performing stretching with the group. Pay attention to arms, shoulders, neck and hamstrings. A list of minimum stretching would be:

·        Head swing
·        Shoulder roll
·        Arm stretch across chest, behind back and up top ceiling
·        Trunk twister Groin stretch
·        Calf stretch

In India the tulsi herb is worshipped as a sacred plant. It is a part of Indian households, typically grown in earthen pots in the family home of garden. It is also an important part of Indian’s holistic health system and because of its potential health benefits, it has been for centuries.

Tulsi is rich in antioxidants and contains hundreds of beneficial compounds known as photochemical. These compounds possess potential adaptogenic properties, which mean they help your body to adapt and resist stress, as well as immune –enhancing properties that may help promote your general health. It’s because of these numerous and wide- ranging benefits that I now recommend tulsi tea as a delicious and healthy alternative to coffee. But there was something else that really drew me t one company in particular, organic India this company, which manufacture original tulsi tea mix and Holy Basil capsules is committed to helping preserve and endeavour with Taj Mahal is evidence of that.
