Yoga

In this modern age, we all are strongly routine bound. Every single step is according to our everyday routine. There’s hardly any chance to get rid of it. Obviously, getting rid of it isn’t good for ourselves as we might lose our concentration and opportunity to shine in our life, right? Well, that’s not completely false. However, following such strict routine is never good for yourself. Such routine may help us in our career but not to us – our soul and our physical condition.

We all want to live safe and sound. We want mental peace, physical fitness and enjoy our life. Well, how’s that possible? The best way to achieve this stage is to take exercise regularly. Exercise is one of the best ways to keep yourselves fit and sound, physically and mentally balanced. However, it might take a good bit of time and thus, not compatible with our everyday routine, right?

I’m a typical person in the world with normal and typical everyday routine with tight schedules of everyday works. I didn’t enjoy a good health and most of the time was anxious about my future, my career and my life deep inside. I found that exercise would be the perfect remedy for me, but it couldn’t fit into my routine.

That’s when I started searching all over the internet and my community. Surprisingly, I found yoga the best thing for me. Yoga is one of the oldest types of physical exercise that involve a number of physical and mental condition that rejuvenates you physically and mentally. Yoga was invented around 5000 years ago, in the middle of Asia. Over days, it has evolved into one of the best assets of anyone’s life.

With yoga, I not only enjoy myself, but I was also able to change my entire life! Yes, yoga can tap you into a number of advantages and controls over yourself that can be really life-changing.

I was always fond of physical exercises because of their benefits. I went to the gym (a few times) and did yoga here and there, but didn’t grow up a habit of doing those regularly. I had a part-time job during my free time. My memory isn’t good at all, so I had to invest a lot more times in my studies. So, going to gym regularly was a hard goal to accomplish for me. About a year ago, my friend told me about yoga – how it could help me in my career. I thought, “Alright, I could afford a few moments to do some stretching!” The term “some stretching” was the most understatement of the year for me.

At first, I stormed the internet, watched YouTube videos and found a few good poses to do. It was tough at first, but as time went on, I started gaining more flexibility and all the other benefits yoga has given to me.

  • Physical Improvement

Yoga is a very old form of exercise that’s being refined and getting better day by day. It is one of the best forms to keep your body fit and healthy in every criteria. We might think of numerous types of workouts, but nothing is so easily sustainable like yoga.

For example, you start doing some simple, free hand workouts and determined to do it the rest of your life. In most cases, you hardly can continue it for a couple weeks! I tried doing so and the result is exactly what I told just now.

But in the case of yoga, I didn’t feel too tiring or boring. It was a very interesting feeling when I first did yoga and when I started continuing it. It’s a really good workout that can work on your fatigue, muscles, and flexibility at the same time. You’ll be able to enjoy the improved physical strength with a better, wider range of motion within a few weeks!

It may sound surprising, but yogaa can actually help you out with your skin! There are several poses in yoga that works on glowing skin. If you’re interested in yoga or doing yoga regularly, you might need these poses to enhance your skin care. Some of the poses are – Padmasana, Adho Mukha Svanasana, Dhanurasana, Halasana etc.

The main mechanism here is to supply more blood to your skin and stabilize your blood pressure under your skins’ vessels. That’s why I recommend doing yoga in an open place where there’s more oxygen density. For example, a garden, a park would be the perfect choice for these poses.

This is, perhaps, the most important fact of yoga that it can improve your mental condition very easily. Yoga specializes in mental conditions and that’s the main reason yoga is so popular amongst people.

Yoga increases your body awareness, reduce muscle tension, strain, and controls over your uncontrolled emotions. Yoga consists of breathing exercises, poses, and meditation that are practically proved to be related to mental wellness.

In my case, I was always worried and stressed about my whole life – my career, my job and my family. If you’re a grown-up person, you already know how much pressuring these factors might be.

Specifically being reduced from most types of recreations was gradually increasing the mental pressure on me. Fortunately, I found yoga to release all my bad emotions. Within 1-2 weeks, I started to feel completely fresh and happy about myself. I’m now completely free from all types of depressions of my life! 

Yogaa can also work as one of the natural remedies as well. Our body mechanism is very complex and yoga helps it to get stronger and more flexible. That way, you’re less prone to diseases, especially related to heart and blood circulation. With yoga, your control over yourself will get you rid of all other types of mental disorders as well.

Since I started a regular yoga practice, I’m leading a better, more organized lifestyle. As my mind is always fresh, I’m even finding my studies a lot easier. For a better expertise on yoga, I’m currently training under a yoga club with my instructor. She’s teaching me a lot more new poses and ways to ease myself and my mind.

I’ve also earned some fans! A number of my friends were surprised to see my positive changes and wanted to learn the techniques from me. At first, I felt a little shy. But gradually, I felt confident about myself and expressed the effect of yoga on me. Many of them now do yoga regularly and none of them suffer from the burdens of life anymore.

That’s why I always inspire everyone to do yoga regularly. My story with yoga was to inspire you as well. It doesn’t take a lot of time and it’s a lot easier than you could ever imagine. Just get started. One day, you’ll have the feeling like me – a positive look towards the world.

When Eating Healthy ISN’T Enough

Have you ever felt this way–you make a ton of dietary changes, but you still. don’t. feel. well.
You’ve gone gluten-free, or even paleo, you’ve gone on a candida diet, and gone sugar-free, you’re taking probiotics, but you’re still sick.
Hannah Hepworth is sharing with us some healthy living tips for When Eating Healthy Isn’t Enough.What to Do When Eating Healthy Isn’t Enough.

POSITIVE THINKING:

This has been a toughie for me in the past. You can eat really healthy foods, but if you have a negative mind and are constantly thinking about your huge “to do” list, and that person that cut you off, and your annoying coworker, and how stressful it is to be a mom, then you know what?
You’re going to feel like junk.
You can’t feel good with a negative mind, you just can’t! I’ve written about starting your day with positive affirmations. This can be a great way to set the tone for your day. Another thing you can do is to start a gratitude journal and write down 3 things you are grateful for, first thing in the morning. Try it out! These 2 tips only take a couple minutes but they could really change the tone of your day. Mindfulness OrganicIsBeautiful

STRESS MANAGEMENT:

The thing about stress is that we can’t avoid it. Stress is a normal part of our life. The thing we can do is manage our stress so that it doesn’t rule our lives. One thing that I’m REEEEALLY really good at is worrying which just adds to stress levels. I’ve been able to stop a lot of worry by using this simple exercise that I write about in this post.

Another thing to do to manage stress is to notice when you’re body starts revving up, and take a 1 minute pause to just breathe.

TIPS: One breathing technique I use a lot is deep belly breathing. Lay down if you can, if not do it wherever you are. Breathe in for 5 counts through your nose and concentrate on filling up your stomach with air. (Put your hand on your tummy).

Don’t breathe with your chest, breathe with your belly. Hold the breath for 5 counts and the release through your mouth, slowly for 5 counts. Repeat this until you bring your stress levels down a few notches. This belly breathing technique helps to lower cortisol (stress hormone) levels and really gets you breathing back into your stomach rather than in your chest which is what we do naturally when we are stressed!
SLEEP AND EXERCISE:

Sleep and exercise are so important to our health. I used to exercise so I could eat junk foods. I believed in my teenage years that this was “healthy.” The exercise definitely helped keep my anxiety at bay growing up but I didn’t do my body any service eating all the sweets!

Exercise is extremely important for our emotional well being. It also, like deep belly breathing, lowers our stress levels and produces good mood hormones and endorphins.

  • Sleep is also important in regulating mood, stress and energy levels. If exercise wipes you out, like it does me lately, try pilates, yoga or walking. You don’t need to run a full sprint and bust your buns. Light exercise will do the trick and you can always work up to more.
  • Sleep greatly determines how we feel. It’s generally better to go to bed earlier and wake up early if you can. Staying up late and sleeping in just doesn’t do the trick and is not nearly as restful. If you can’t go to bed early because of your work then try to catch a cat nap when you can to keep energy levels up and stress hormones down.

Here are some tips for getting to sleep and staying asleep:

RELAXATION AND RELATIONSHIPS:

This part of health is greatly overlooked. We spend way too much time running around trying to accomplish as much as we can during the day and forget to take time to breathe and just chill.
Take time each day to do things that help you feel relaxed.

– Is it reading a book?
– Playing a game with your kids?
– Fishing?
– Taking a drive?
– Going to the grocery store alone!?
– Knitting?
Whatever it is make sure you do it, every day.
Also who do you love spending time with?
A spouse, children, family member, best friend?

Don’t forget about those around you that you love and that make you feel good. A feeling of connectedness with others makes you happy and thus strengthens your health.
I could go on and on about other things that impact your health that aren’t food related but for times sake these are the top and most easily accomplished things you can do to increase your health. As I’ve placed more and more focus on the non food sources of health I’ve seen my health increase so much more. Food is still important I won’t ever discount that but you’ve got to think outside of food as well for true vibrant health!
