On World Health Day, observed annually on April 7, Ms Kundra took to Instagram to send a message to her followers. She said,

It’s World Health Day but not every day will you be motivated. So for those days, the two things that will come to your rescue is to be consistent and disciplined. (sic)

Ms Kundra, a Mindful Yogi and a wellness influencer, emphasised self-care. She says in her post, “Wellness transcends the gym – it’s in our morning rituals, the meals we savor, the moments shared with our loved ones and our mental well- being. Celebrate World Health Day by prioritising YOU! Don’t forget to hydrate, meditate and appreciate our greatest gift.”

Good health is the greatest wealth!! Regular exercise, a healthy diet, nature, love and doing things that make your heart happy! Take care of yourself physically and mentally!!

“Health is not fitness,” states Actor and Nutritionist Bhagyashree. In a video message shared on social media, Bhagyashree explains that to improve overall health, diet is more important than exercise. She writes,

Good health doesn’t come from the gym, or with elevated excercise (sic) routines. It comes from the essential nutrients being covered in your everyday meals. I cannot stress the fact enough, that diet does not mean giving up on food, it means the correct combination of food that ensures your physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Bhagyashree calls for a pact to “prioritise your health everyday”.

NDTV – Dettol have been working towards a clean and healthy India since 2014 via the Banega Swachh India initiative, which in its Season 10 is helmed by Campaign Ambassador Ayushmann Khurrana. The campaign aims to highlight the inter-dependency of humans and the environment, and of humans on one another with the focus on One Health, One Planet, One Future – Leaving No One Behind. It stresses on the need to take care of, and consider, everyone’s health in India – especially vulnerable communities – the LGBTQ populationindigenous people, India’s different tribes, ethnic and linguistic minorities, people with disabilities, migrants, geographically remote populations, gender and sexual minorities. In a world post COVID-19 pandemic, the need for WASH (WaterSanitation and Hygiene) is reaffirmed as handwashing is one of the ways to prevent Coronavirus infection and other diseases. The campaign will continue to raise awareness on the same along with focussing on the importance of nutrition and healthcare for women and children, fight malnutrition, mental well-being, self-care, science and health, adolescent health & gender awareness. Along with the health of people, the campaign has realised the need to also take care of the health of the eco-system. Our environment is fragile due to human activity, which is not only over-exploiting available resources, but also generating immense pollution as a result of using and extracting those resources. The imbalance has also led to immense biodiversity loss that has caused one of the biggest threats to human survival – climate change. It has now been described as a “code red for humanity.” The campaign will continue to cover issues like air pollutionwaste managementplastic banmanual scavenging and sanitation workers and menstrual hygiene. Banega Swasth India will also be taking forward the dream of Swasth Bharat, the campaign feels that only a Swachh or clean India where toilets are used and open defecation free (ODF) status achieved as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014, can eradicate diseases like diahorrea and the country can become a Swasth or healthy India.
