When we think of health, we automatically presume the term refers to physical wellbeing and fitness only. However, over time as we delve deeper into the world of wellbeing, we realise that health is not only limited to a good physique. Rather, it is a holistic term that combines the avenues of physical and mental wellness facilitated via parameters of a balanced diet, exercise, and positive thoughts.
The earlier in life we realise this, the better it is for an individual, their family and society. Unfortunately, for many, the realisation dawns after major health complications are formed. Such was the case of Misha Mahjabeen, Founder of Healthy Bengal. Having seen her relatives suffer from deadly diseases and being the victim of severe health repercussions herself, Mahjabeen was steadfast to find a way out of this loop.
"The first step towards a healthy lifestyle begins with a change in diet, and this change does not occur overnight but comes gradually. By altering my eating habits, tweaking my lifestyle slightly and swapping a few unhealthy practices for healthier ones, I was able to regain control of my health regimen and started feeling better in my own skin," said a beaming Mahjabeen.
Healthy Bengal is a one-stop platform that provides effective remedies to maintain one's physical and mental wellbeing along with guidance on proper food and nutrition intake. It goes by the motto "invest in prevention" so that people can choose a life of ease over disease.
Understanding the importance of food and exercise is the starting point of a healthy lifestyle, and with this notion, Healthy Bengal offers yoga, freehand exercise and meditation services. "Choosing the right quantity of food and performing daily exercise, even if it is for ten minutes can obtain miraculous results for our mind and body," noted Mahjabeen.
Healthy Bengal is also working towards breaking the stigma associated with mental health problems and thus, arranges events and sessions to encourage discussion, share information and seek the much-needed support on mental health related issues.
The services are limited to online mediums as of now, however the popularity of their food and nutrition services resulted in the offshoot brand, Dr. Green, which is a popular healthy meal catering service and also the platform's only physical establishment.
Dr. Green understands the dietary requirements of individual clients and caters their meals to suit such needs, which are also verified by certified nutritionists.
"Our end goal is to enable people to enjoy life in a meaningful manner, by being healthy, happy and content at the same time," stated Mahjabeen. Healthy Bengal recognises that health does not only circulate around physical wellbeing, but rather is a symbiotic process of the combined forces of physical and mental wellbeing.
