Say yes to healthy living!

Family is like music, some high notes, some low, but always a beautiful song!

I am blessed to have the gift of a beautiful family in my life. In-fact, not one but two families if I am to count my maiden family too.The newest and most adorable addition to my family is my 5-month-old baby, and I love him to the core!

All that matters is the assurance that the people you love are healthy and happy. Everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae. With our desk jobs, little physical activity,and a helping hand to manage work at home, I have realized that having a healthy lifestyle is really important for a family. After all, prevention is better than cure, isn't it?

I never compromise when it comes to my family’s health. And I am always dedicated to practice healthy habits which my parents taught me. These are simple, basic things like brushing teeth twice, washing hands frequently, and drinking adequate water, inculcating a balanced diet and regular exercise regime.

Those who think they have no time for healthy living will sooner or later have to find time for illness.
Today’s small, everyday moments become tomorrow’s precious memories. And in this uncertain life in a metro, you never know what’s coming next. It’s a scary thought, and I myself have had a couple of near-death experiences. The mere thought of losing my loved ones gives me goose bumps! Living in a metro is already costly, with the rents, bills, expenses of the day-to-day life. I feel it is mandatory to have a health insurance policy for your family so that if and when the need arises, you get timely medical aid for you and your loved ones.

Health insurance is one that we pay for but hope we never need it. However, just having an insurance is not enough. Just like we give time to research before we invest in property or automobiles, we should choose the best plan as per our family’s requirement. These days, the information is very easily available, and there are so many customized plans to choose from. Whether a big family or small, newly married or with a baby on the way, there is a different plan for every family. Without a proper health insurance in place, we might delay the necessary medical treatment or be compelled to take a loan, which would only add onto the woes.

When we got married, my husband and I vowed to protect each other and look after one another. When I got to know about my baby’s arrival, I promised that I will always be there and look after him. Family is a gift that lasts forever. My parents have always sacrificed their needs and wishes in order to fulfill mine and my brother’s. That is the kind of unconditional love of a family, and I now understand. After all, for me, all that matters now is my child’s health and well-being.


I feel blessed to be born and brought up in the era of change. Today, healthcare facilities in India are way better than what they used to be. Factors such as rise in the number of hospital chains, new age technology and medicines, and getting any doctor’s information online, truly make things easier and faster, especially in times of need. With such evolution in healthcare facilities and Royal Sundaram’s Health Insurance at hand, I can truly rest assured. 

I love my family, we may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
