De-Stress With 3 Amazing Yoga Poses

yoga posesStress is incredibly unhealthy and can make you sick. It is harmful to your mental, emotional and physical well-being, and just makes daily life miserable. To be productive and happy, you need to de-stress. Stress is also an enemy to weight loss.

The good news is you can battle stress and work toward weight loss simultaneously with restorative yoga. Below are some poses to help calm the mind, emotions and body. Remember to take the time to breathe, as well. It’ll help with the stress — and the poses!

Pigeon Pose
We store a lot of emotion, tension, and stress in our hips, so hip openers like pigeon are a wonderful way to release. This pose can be intense and uncomfortable, but just like anything, if you allow yourself to sit with that discomfort and soften into it using the breath as a guide, the sweet release will come eventually, along with all of the benefits of letting go.

Chair Pose
“With your feet on the floor, hip-width and parallel, bend your knees tracking them over your toes. Lengthen your arms ahead of you. Stay there for 5 to 10 deep breaths. Every time you exhale, contract in your lower belly, and on each inhalation, lengthen your side waists,” says Lauren Weisman, mind body director at exhale Santa Monica. Chair pose is excellent for strengthening your legs, glutes and upper back. It is also excellent for fat burning and for focusing your mind.

Forward Twisting Restorative Pose
“Sit with one hip against the short end of a yoga bolster. Bend your knees in front of you, one loosely on top of the other. Slowly walk each hand to either side of the bolster and forward taking deep breaths as you lower your abdomen onto the bolster. When your whole torso is on the bolster, allow your arms to settle about inch above the top end of it with your elbow slightly bent. Turn your head toward your knees and lay the side of your face down. For a deeper twist, turn your face and deepen the rotation of your torso away from your knees. Switch sides. Hold each side for five minutes,” says Wilcox.


Decrease Risk of Heart Attack By Meditation

MeditationMeditation is known to reduce stress, and it follows that it also must lower risk from any stress-related disease. But a rigorous study has shown a strong correlation between meditation practice and a dramatic reduction in risk of debilitating or fatal heart failure.

Previous studies have linked better health outcomes among heart patients who practiced meditation compared to those who did not, but none of those trials could definitively credit the brain-focusing program with the better health results. In the latest trial to address those limitations, however, meditation does appear to have an effect on reducing heart attack, stroke and even early death from heart disease, at least among African-Americans.

“The main finding of the research is that, added on top of usual medical care, intervention with a mind-body technique — transcendental meditation — can have a major effect on cardiovascular events,” says Robert Schneider, lead author on the study published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes and a professor at the Maharishi University of Management, an institution in Iowa that was founded by the creator of transcendental meditation.

He and his colleagues followed 201 African American men and women, who are at higher risk of heart disease than whites, but who also had addition reason to worry about heart attacks and strokes since they were also diagnosed with coronary heart disease. The participants were randomly assigned to participate in either a health education class about heart-friendly diet and exercise, or to attend a transcendental meditation program. Transcendental meditation involves shutting out the outside world and focusing thoughts inward, or resting while remaining alert. All of the participants continued to receive their normal medical care as well, including appropriate medication.

After roughly five years of follow-up, the researchers found a 48% reduction in the overall risk of heart attack, stroke, and death from any cause among members of the meditation group compared to those from the health education group. The meditating group enjoyed an average drop of 4.9 mm Hg in systolic blood pressure compared to the control group and also reported less stress and less anger. “It’s like discovering a whole new class of medications,” Schneider says of the power of meditation in improving the patients’ health.

Yoga Therapy Can Cure Chronic Ailments

Yoga TherapyHealth is not just freedom from disease. For good health, the joints, tissues, muscles, cells, nerves, glands, and each system of the body must be in a state of perfect balance and harmony. Health is the perfect equilibrium of the body and mind, intellect and soul. Health is like the flowing water of a river, always fresh and pure, in a constant state of flux. Humans are a combination of the senses of perception, the organs of action, the mind, the intelligence, the inner consciousness, and the conscience. Each of these is worked on by the practice of yoga.

Yoga is for everyone. The strain of modern life can lead to physical pain and illness, as we neglect our bodies in the race for material success. The stress of modern life can also lead to mental suffering: feelings of inadequacy, isolation, or powerlessness. Yoga helps to integrate the mental and the physical plane, bringing about a sense of inner and outer balance.

The yoga techniques and specific therapeutic sequences can help those with specific ailments. Regular practice builds up the body’s inner strength and natural resistance, helps to alleviate pain, and tackles the root, rather than the symptoms, of the problem. Across the world, there is now a growing awareness that alternative therapies are more conducive to health than conventional ones.

Asanas balance the respiratory, circulatory, nervous, hormonal, digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems perfectly. The equilibrium in the body then brings mental peace and enhances intellectual clarity.

The process of yoga therapy is based on selecting and sequencing asanas which stretch specified parts of the body, and block others. You must remember, however, that in the case of serious or congenital disabilities, yoga asanas may not affect a full recovery, but in many cases can alleviate some of the suffering associated with the condition. Asanas need to be practiced with patience and diligence for a period of time to get relief or cure. Yoga calms the nerves and reduce the pain thus bringing the foremost trouble entity (pain) to the minimum levels. Meditation and pranayam speeds up the healing process. Cure is not forced but allowed the nature to heal on its own pace.

Yoga Therapy has proven to be effective in treating more than 54 chronic diseases and conditions with ample evidence. Yoga is holistic. Diseases manifest only when our body, mind and soul are not in balance with each other. The belief underlying yoga therapy is to enable the human system to function as efficiently, effectively, and naturally as it can. This natural process, however, operates at its own rhythm and pace, and the pace may sometimes be slow. Yoga therapy begins with understanding the entire human body and the way it functions. The origins and development of the ailment in question are carefully studied, particularly the parts of the body most affected. The aim is not simply to cure the specific symptom, but to target the cause.

Yoga addresses every muscle, bone, organ, tissues and cell of the body.  Some of the most common chronic and degenerative diseases successfully treated by yoga are :

  • High & Low Blood Pressure, Hypertension, Cardiac Problems
  • Asthma, Cold Extremities, Allergies, Breathlessness, bronchitis
  • Digestive Disorders: Irritable Bowel Syndrome( IBS), Indigestion, Acid Reflux( GERD), Constipation, Diarrhea, Heartburn, acidity etc
  • Physical fatigue, back problems (Sciatica pain, Slip disc), lower and upper back pain, neck pain, arthritis, osteoporosis etc
  • Mental Disorders like anxiety and stress disorders, depression, insomnia etc
  • Diabetes, skin and blood related ailments etc

Vegetarianism is a plant-based diet by avoiding animal foods, especially meat. A vegetarian diet is divided into four types: first, semi-vegetarians. Second, Lacto Ovo . Third, the type of vegetarian Vegan- pretty tight. Fourth, Fructarian. The question is whether it’s vegetarian one way to live a healthy life? Are they lackluster?

Apparently a lot of vegetarians who claims his life are much healthier than before becoming a vegetarian. Although the type of food consumed is limited but still there are many options and variations as well as important life stay pleasant. Many feel that their immune system more vibrant and smooth bowel movement, even they feel the smell of sweat is not too overpowering.

Dr. Kjeldsen-Kragh jean from Olso, Norway stated that a vegetarian diet can reduce swelling and pain in rheumatoid arthritis common in people aged 40 years. Experts remind me often of heart disease among others obtained from consuming excessive saturated fat and cholesterol from animal foods. While the fiber in plant foods actually can lower blood cholesterol levels, controlling blood sugar levels, as well as loses weight. But even so, the vegetarian if not careful it could be attacked by the disease. Need to know about nutrition because if the lack of knowledge about nutrition and balance of nutrients that need to be absorbed by the body can be bad. Among others; diseases related to malnutrition, especially because of the low quality proteins such as slow growth, kwashi-orkor, malnutrition and so on.

Kerry Gorman, author of Nutrition For Vegetarians mention that on this earth vegetarian number exceeds the number of people eating meat. It may be because they obviously have a long life. German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg prove the vegetarian than achieving a higher level of health has a greater life expectancy due to avoid heart disease, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, cholesterol, kidney or bone disease.

So depending on your own whether it will be an eater of vegetables and fruits or meat eaters. I think the most important thing in creating a healthy life is to know the nutrients contained in the food, knowing the benefits and disadvantages of different types of foods that can set our own diet.

Become Age Proof With Omega 3

Omega 3 supplements and foods enriched with them have a long history of being beneficial to the human body. Some people even argue that this supplement essentially serves as a modern day fountain of youth because of the multitude of benefits that effectively fend off signs of aging. Omega 3’s are the healthy and fatty acids that are found in many foods such as some fish, nuts and oils. There are three main contributors that make up the reason as to why omega 3’s are so healthy: alpha-linolenic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

Alpha-linolenic acid is one fatty acid that is considered to be essential to good health and is the counterpart to the other essential acid linoleic acid. Essential acids are classified as such because they are acids that the human body does not produce on its own, but are vital to good health and well functioning immune systems. Having a deficit of these essential acids can lead to poorer health and possibly the onset of many diseases and illnesses.

There are a few sources from which we can obtain these necessary acids, but historically people do not ingest nearly the amount of them that is recommended by physicians and researchers. These essential acids are found in things like flaxseed, soybeans and some green vegetables such as spinach.

For those searching for ways to incorporate more Linoleic acid into their diets subtle changes in the oil one cooks with is a great way to do so as safflower, sunflower and corn oil are all vital sources of this acid.

Alpha-linolenic acid plays a crucial role in our physiological health and well being and research shows that many Americans do not consume nearly enough of it to reap the benefits. The main source of this acid would come from fish like tuna and salmon.

How Omega 3’s Work

As much as 90% or more of Americans do not get their daily recommended dose of omega 3’; this is disturbing to many physicians and researchers since it is a vital source for the body. Those who do not intake enough of the omega 3’s may experience fatigue, brittle nails, thinning or dry hair, joint pain and muscle aches and difficulty concentrating.

Omega 3 and Better Health

Proper amounts of omega 3 have been linked to many studies which conclude that by taking the right amount of this fatty acid, those who suffer from ailments such as rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus, cancer, depression and cardiovascular disease report less severe symptoms. At the same time researchers believe that taking omega 3 may ward off many of these illnesses in the first place.

Other health ailments that may improve or not develop at all with the proper intake of omega 3’s include but are not limited to:

Multiple sclerosis





Some research also reveals that omega 3 may very much increase our psychological well being particularly in people who suffer with depression and bipolar disorder. Those who were involved in studies who were diagnosed with bipolar and or depression reported feeling better overall relating to their moods and less instances of feeling moody, irrational and anxious.

Best Sources of Omega 3

Cold water fish are excellent sources of omega 3 and include salmon, tuna, shrimp and cod. Nuts are also a prime source of omega 3 such as walnuts and almonds. Leafy and green veggies such as kale, spinach, and collard greens also offer high amounts of this beneficial fatty acid. Green beans and soybeans are also perfect ways to get your daily dose of omega 3.

How Much Omega 3 is Enough?

The Institute of Medicine at the National Academy of Sciences regulates such acids and recommends that one’s daily intake of omega 3 should be 1.6 grams per day for men (teenagers as well) and 1.1 grams for teenage and adult women based on the recommended 2,000 caloric intake per day.

Other regulators suggest that for 2,000 caloric diets per day the amount of omega 3 can actually be increased to 4 grams per day for males and females.

Omega 3 Supplements

Other doctors encourage getting the omega 3 intake from food sources if possible, the supplements sold on the market and in stores is still a good option particularly if you don’t like the foods that are enriched with them.

Since it takes the body more time to metabolize omega 3 in pill form, taking a higher dose is usually recommended (up to 4 grams) but if you are taking at least the minimal as listed above, you are on the right track.

Yoga is a type of physical exercise consisting of various poses that build muscle strength and endurance. Yoga originated in India as a way to discipline the mind and body, and eventually gained popularity throughout the Western world as an effective method of exercising and staying in shape.

Traditionally, yoga practitioners in India relied on the exercise to help them attain Moksha, a type of spiritual and mental enlightenment.

Physical Benefits

The various poses of yoga are extremely demanding, and over time result in increased flexibility in all the muscles of the body. The majority of yoga poses demand that the body support its own weight for long periods of time, which results in increased strength in the abdominal, leg, back, chest and arm muscles. Yoga helps shape long and lean muscles, resulting in visible muscle tone. The practice of yoga also promotes better breathing habits, resulting in deeper breathing that strengthens the lungs. Finally, yoga also aids in pain prevention in the back by increasing a person’s flexibility and general strength. All of these aspects also result in promoting better health.

Mental Benefits

The mental health benefits of yoga include stress reduction and a general sense of calmness. Yoga involves many meditation techniques that help to bring a certain calmness to the mind. This calming effect also promotes greater concentration. Moreover, the calm meditative techniques of yoga contribute greatly to stress relief. The great concentration necessary to perform the majority of yoga poses is great for relieving stress by helping the person forget about past troubles and stress-causing daily anxieties.

Tips to Stay Healthy & Clean At The Gym

Clean at the gym

Clean at the gym


It seems strange that gyms would be considered a place where you could potentially get really sick, but the evidence definitely points that way. Whether it’s common colds or staph infections, gyms by their nature can be a supermarket of germs for the unsuspecting exerciser. That being said, here are a few tips to keep yourself safe and clean at the gym so that you don’t pick up what others left on the bench, and so that you don’t leave anything there yourself!

Join a Gym that’s Clean

Before you ever hit the weights or the elliptical, make sure that the gym that you are part of has cleanliness as a strong value. If you have not yet joined a gym, make sure to sign up for a trial period before joining so that you can survey the landscape and make sure the staff is doing its job. First off, look to see if the fitness staff is wiping down machines if a patron forgets to. Many places just let this important practice slip. If your fellow gym rats aren’t going to be clean, its essential to know that the staff will be clean for them! Make sure the staff are carrying around bottles of cleaner if they are working the floor and ask about the necessary certifications and standards for cleanliness your gym’s employees are required to have.

Next, be sure to check the bathrooms! This isn’t the sort of thing that most people think about, but the status of the bathrooms can determine the cleanliness of the whole building. If the place is a pig sty and smells like something worse, you can be that the place is crawling with germs that patrons (who, let’s be honest, don’t all wash their hands) are taking with them to the dumbbells and mats.

Finally, find out what your gym’s policy on open wounds is. Staph infections run rampant when wounds are exposed, so a responsible gym will have standards regarding infection prevention.

Wipe Down All the Machines You Touch

Expecting your gym staff to be hygienic goes hand in hand with being hygienic yourself. Carry a sweat rag (or two!) and a bottle of hand sanitizer with you wherever you go in the gym. Your sweat rag is to be used to wipe your sweat from the machines you use and to wipe sweat off of yourself without touching your face with your hands. This is why it’s good to have two rags: one for your machines and one for you. The gym can only be as clean as the most irresponsible member!

Clean Yourself

Most gyms offer showers in the locker rooms. Take advantage of these! It may be a hassle, especially if you only live 2 minutes away, but by using the gym’s shower you make sure that what you pick up at the gym stays there. By the way, make sure to bring some cheap flip flops for the shower!

Wash Your Clothes

Look, I basically living in the locker room in high school and I know that there are a ton of you out there who are convinced that you can get away with wearing the same clothes day in and day out when you exercise since you’re going to get them sweat anyways. Wrong. Unless you want to extend an open-armed friend invitation to a staph infection, don’t do that. Staph loves moist, electrolyte-loaded cloth that sits in musty gym bags. It’s like staph’s Beverly Hills. That’s where it wants to be. Make sure to wash your clothes and wear fresh shorts/shirts every time you exercise.

If you do get sick, abstain from going to the gym and see a doctor or medical testing facility to ensure that you haven’t caught anything serious when working out. This should be unlikely though if you follow the above instructions. So, follow a few basic instructions and benefit from a healthy gym experience!
