Yoga has always been associated with focus and flexibility. People who engage in yoga speak of the many benefits that they enjoy by doing it. Not only has it helped them improve their attention, but it has allowed their body to become flexible in so many ways.
The practice of yoga dates back to ancient times. It involves holding one’s body and moving through a series of poses, each one targeting to improve a specific part of the body.

The stretches and the various poses in yoga help in reducing chronic pain, and many of these are weight-bearing postures, which means they help strengthen the bones and...
The foods that you put inside your body says a lot about how healthy or unhealthy you are. The food has a significant impact on the health and structure of the brain too. Eating foods that boost your brain's health can support both short and long-term functions of the brain.
Foods that boost brain power should be a regular part of your daily meals. Little do people know that the brain is an energy-intensive organ, which means that it utilizes about 20% of the calories that you put inside your body. Can you imagine how much calories it needs to help keep your brain focused?
Apart from the total amount of calories that the brain needs to function, it also requires certain nutrients to keep it healthy. For example, consuming Omega-3 fatty acids help in the repair and building of new brain cells. The antioxidants in the food that you eat help reduce cellular inflammation and stress.
All-natural brain enhancers are...
How do you take care of your health? Your everyday mindfulness is the key to keeping yourself healthy inside and out. When you are mindful, you begin to take notice of all the details in your life.
You become more conscious of what you put inside your body. You begin to make healthier choices in terms of food and drinks. In the process, you also start to get more sleep and engage in activities to help you become more active.
While there are many ways to practice mindfulness, being mindful at work is one of the best things you can train yourself to do. After all, you spend almost half of your day at the office, and it means that you need to be in control of what you do and think while you are there to keep a balanced life.
But how do you begin being mindful in the workplace?
In the past, when people went to work, they had this mindset that they were there to slave themselves to do as much work as they...
The experience that many people are having where they desire MORE out of their relationships—intimate, family, friendships, coworkers—is a reflection of wishing more out of life . . . desiring a depth of experience that has been suppressed. We are having the feeling of wanting to love people more—to have a deeper, more authentic connection with our friends and family—because we also desire to connect more within ourselves.
The problem that many people have is that they do not know how to love themselves. Therefore they do not know how to love someone else. That's it. While there is not a right or wrong way to express your love, the more attentive we are to our own emotions, the more ability we have to be careful about that of others. We can find a more in-depth connection with others by connecting more genuinely within ourselves first, or simultaneously.
The practice of working through our ideal self-image and our...
Each of us has what it takes to utilize time most effectively and efficiently as possible. The secret is desire.
There is no arguing that one of the essential variables in fulfilling our desires is our ability to manage our time. There are many methods for time management—and perhaps an even higher number of technological tools. The problem that many people have is that they do not allow themselves to become obsessed with something, to desire it so much that time works for them, not the other way around. The solution is to channel that inner flow state as much as possible in the direction of one's goals and ambitions.
What is it that you desire? How deeply do you want it? Don't look at this desire as something that you must give up other things to achieve, but rather, stay in the wanting of it. This desire to be a better person, to hold a particular title, to maintain a deeper connection with your spouse, to create a more exciting life—these are all strong...

“Chakra” is a term often used to refer to a kind of healing technique. While there may be a tinge of truth in this, chakras are healing points within the body, or points of energy, that keep life’s perfect balance.
Experts believe that when the chakras are not in balance, a person’s life is out of balance. The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit term, which means the wheel. Simply put, it is the wheel of life that runs from the top of your head down to the tailbone.
There are seven different chakras placed along the spine. The sixth chakra, or the brow chakra, is associated with the third eye powers. When functioning properly, the chakras help life unfold smoothly, allowing people to achieve true success and happiness.
But how does the brow chakra work?
This is the chakra that is located in the middle of the two eyebrows. It is right where the big eye of the cyclopes can be found. Because...

And yet, little do people know that there is so much more about yoga than just asanas. It is more than just about twisting the body, toning it, or strengthening the muscles. There are so many other ancient techniques in the practice of yoga that is yet to be discovered. One of them is the meditation mudra.
What is it about the meditation mudra that makes it stand out? This ancient practice began as part of the Pranayama meditation. While newbies may describe this as a form of meditation hand positions, mudras express a psychic, emotional, and aesthetic gestures.
Ancient yoga masters would often describe the mudras as an act of balancing all the energies in the body. Its practice is...

Often in life, we come across some form of blockage, whether it is from tragedy, people not liking us, or not winning the lottery. These blockages embed themselves deep into the mind. The only way to release yourself from these blockages is to uproot them yourself. And the only way to uproot them is to venture deep into the Mariana's Trench.
One of the most overlooked things in meditation is being ready to do the meditation itself. Most will put on their headphones and then think about the ongoing day and other drama. It is time to go into the inner world, not the realm of Cheesecake Riots and Screaming. Trust me; it's a lot more peaceful and fun.
Generally, you will want to be slightly reclined if not sitting up straight. Most people tend to fall asleep when lying down as the human mind is conditioned to sleep because that's what people do when lying down.
