(X/@Nithin0dha and @kmr_dilip) Kumar shared that being fit doesn’t mean being healthy: “Most people believe being healthy and being fit are one and the same. It’s not. They are not synonymous and are dinct states of physical well-being.” Hindustan Times – your fastest source for breaking news! Read now. The entrepreneur added that ‘fitness doesn’t guarantee health’: “You may be a runner, go to the gym regularly or get your ten thousand daily steps. Fitness doesn’t guarantee health. While being fit can contribute to overall health, it’s possible for someone to be physically fit but still experience health issues due to poor nutrition, stress, lack of sleep, or underlying medical conditions.” “Stress + rest = growth,” he further explained. “We all live a hectic life and are exposed to stress and dractions all the time. It’s even more important for people who prioritise fitness to balance it with healthy living…. Going to a gym or doing a run doesn’t get you a heart attack or stroke. Overdoing it might. So do everything in the right proportion.” The next takeaway is to maintain a balance between being healthy and being fit. “Fitness is important and can be achieved through specific physical activities. Health considers various dimensions of well-being and is achieved sustainable long-term practices. Striking a balance between both is real work,” concluded Kumar. The thread was shared on February 28. It has since collected over two lakh views, and the numbers are still increasing. Many even expressed their thoughts in the comments section of the thread. Here’s how people reacted to Kumar’s thread:“Thought provoking, going for a master checkup tomorrow,” posted an individual. Another added, “Well articulated and perfect to the point analysis about the importance of being healthy rather than being looking fit.” “Very well said. Only one point to add: Being fit increases your chances of being healthy,” expressed a third. A fourth commented, “Wow. You penned it beautifully.” “Good post,” chimed in a fifth.
