Another element that plays a pivotal role in your diet is incorporating almonds into your diet. They offer numerous health benefits and play a role in weight management. Almonds are a source of 15 nutrients such as vitamin E, magnesium, protein, riboflavin, zinc, etc. They are a rich source of protein, a nutrient which is not only energy-yielding but is also known to contribute to growth and maintenance of muscle mass. Almonds are a healthy source of energy that keeps you active throughout the day. They are also traditionally considered festive and make a great addition to many festive snacks. Not only can you incorporate them into your diet but also treat your guests to some delicious and healthy snacks and desserts. Almonds are versatile and can be served in a variety of ways: plain, roasted or flavoured.

Mindfulness Exercises

Paying attention and living in the moment is the first step to mindfulness. Acceptance – letting go of ‘what could be’ and focusing more on ‘what it is’ is the mantra to stay happy. Indulge yourself in some breathing exercises to chuck out all the stress and negativity. Meditation is the key element of mindfulness exercises. The daily routine of meditating for half an hour will take you a long way.
