Human Limitations

Many people dwell on the borderline between staying fit and unhealthy levels of exercise. Every day we hear news about someone breaking an earlier held record with regards to the physical effort of a human being. Even though this sounds progression in a positive state we need to understand that there is a threshold for a human to be able to run (for example) any faster would mean sacrificing some other part of his healthy biological lifestyle in order to gain more of the ability to make him run faster or longer. People would have to devote their life purely for running in order to achieve any more in this sector. Even the successful implementation of this target would incur a lot of health-related problems in the future which is why ancient Ayurveda has already predicted this and have given directions on how to make the best use of your energy. It states that at any given time you should only use 50% of your total energy reservoir.  This is again a rough estimation and one need not be very accurate in these figures. If the need/emergency is worth it there is absolutely no harm in putting in more than 50% effort but is very much advised to store the rest in the event of something unfortunate.

Most of the Ayurvedic treatments in Kerala revolves around educating the short and long term effects of these fundamental issues. The Ayurvedic resorts in Kerala, Ayurveda training courses in Kerala have also adopted the same. The Yoga Center in Kannur has even adopted the Panchakarma Therapy in Kerala.
