Everyone wants to be healthy and yet we struggle with it a lot. To be healthy, you worry about the extra time which you will have to take out in your life or the morning sleep you will have to sacrifice for that yoga class. Being healthy might also mean that you will have to sacrifice your food and switch to a diet you don't like. You almost feel judged whether you are doing enough.

Just like how Alia's 'Jug' (Shahrukh Khan) in the movie Dear Zindagi enunciates the qualities of a true friend. Who's your jug? The one who holds the closest spot in your heart!
