  • Mindfulness is a powerful tool in watching for the signs & symptoms of diabetes but it is better to start changing the daily habits of normal young adults in their day-to-day life - like avoiding deep fried foods & watching calorie intake, choosing steam-cooked low-calorie tasty foods will help a great deal
  •  Daily moderate 20 min physical activity will control blood glucose levels + prevent diabetes from occurring early
  • It is a wise choice to consume sweet-tasting foods by replacing white sugar with sweeteners like stevia and sucralose
  • In addition to a healthy diet and regular exercise, lowering blood sugar levels and improving the overall quality of life can be accomplished by reducing stress at home and at work through the practice of meditation or other calming activities such as gardening

In a nutshell & to summarize - Mindful diet + Mild to moderate daily physical activity + stress reduction are the 3 cornerstones of both preventing & managing diabetes.
