People often view celebrity diets and lifestyles as restrictive and extreme for anyone in the real world to emulate. But this is not in the case of Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla, who ever since winning the Miss India crown three decades ago, is making a splash in the health and wellness space. At 51, Chawla is still a stunner and rightfully hailed for her amazing looks.

What’s her secret? A lifestyle that’s surprisingly accessible and involves the kind of habits that anyone could adopt. Chawla  is fueling a wellness revolution one Instagram post at a time. The Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga actor has gone organic and embraced a sustainable and healthy lifestyle. As an avid promoter of healthy living she is helping shift attitude towards self-care and healthy living.

We traced her wellness journey on Instagram and brought to you some tips that Chawla solemnly swears by. Scroll down to get all the dope!

Chawla swears by hydration and has cut out processed food from her life. We all know that water is the liquid of life but yet at times simply forget to drink enough of it.

Further to her superfood endeavours, Chawla switched to organic living years back. An advocate for organic nutrition and as someone who’s tried and tested its benefits, she vouches for it. Besides, the fact that your food will be chemical-free, grown and nurtured without pesticides and fertilisers, and additional preservatives should be reason enough for you to make the switch too.

A natural (read cheap) way to enhance the quality of air and to keep our homes cool in summers is to opt for plant air conditioning. At least that’s what Chawla thinks. House plants act as natural coolants by absorbing heat thereby drop the temperature. Apart from improving air quality and helping you beat the heat, plants such as aloe vera, snake plant and golden pothos add to your home aesthetics by lending a tropical vibe.

Encouraging people to go #BackToTheRoots by growing the revered tulsi or holy basil, Chawla shows us how one can avail of its advantages.
