What do you do when overstressed, tensed and tired?? Not able to find a reliable solution??  Well! there’s a perfect remedy for these problems. Just take a deep breath, close your eyes and sit down and start a Meditation…



Researches have proved that there is no medicine in comparison to Meditation that can overcome stress. Stress occurs in our mind, and slowly and steadily starts interfering in our life. Meditation is the only key to remove it in a far better way, to lend us with relaxed, calm, focused, sensible, and peaceful mind and soul.

The practice of Spiritual meditation regularly helps a person to dig deep into the inner self in order to achieve peace and tranquility that lies within us all. Many meditation techniques and practices have been developed since ancient times to help people experience a transcendental meditation which have a goal to clear the mind of distractions and focusing mainly on self, and to be one with all things around you in nature and in your lives.

Meditate frequently and you’ll gain a deeper understanding of yourself through the observation of what occurs in your mind and who you really are!

Lord Buddha has very well said “Meditation brings wisdom; and its lack leads ignorance. Know well what leads you ahead and what holds you back, and choose path that leads to wisdom.”

Plant the seed of meditation, and reap the fruit of peaceful mind and spirit!

There is an old saying; If we eat to live, there’s no problem; but if we live to eat then that’s when the problem starts.

Hunger is an incurable illness right from the day we are born till the day we die. We all need the food to stay alive and to prevent illness that could arise from malnutrition. But eating the food in a huge quantity at lower intervals, without hunger is one of the major problems of the world leading to a number of diseases like obesity, diabetes, heart attacks and other irritations such as greed, hatred, delusion, attachment, envy, etc.

Therefore, we need to understand the concept of eating which says, “Eating just what the body requires”. We can maintain a healthy life by knowing our own moderation in eating, learning why we have to eat and what to eat. There are some suggestions which can help you to overcome your unnecessary diet.

*Chop up your eating into smaller portions, rather than eating gigantic meals throughout the day.

*Replace your sugared soft drinks with water or fruit juices.

*Don’t eat just right before going to bed.

*Keep yourself engaged in some work. It will not remind of hunger again and again.

*Take in fresh vegetables and fruits salad as a meal for atleast once a day.

*Eat your food slowly and chew it until it becomes softer. It will also make you feel satisfied.

*Deduct starchy and oily snacks from your snack-list.

*Drink lots of water as it keeps you hydrated and definitely helps you in fighting hunger.

* Last but not least, don’t let the hunger overpower you. Only your strong determination and will-power can fight against this devil. Remember, if you’ll yourselves overwhelmed by it, then it will bring hindrances to the progress in your life.

At the physical level, yoga and its cleansing practices have proven to be extremely effective for various disorders. More importantly, yoga is extremely effective in: 

> Increasing Flexibility – yoga has positions that act upon the various joints of the body including those joints that are never really on the ‘radar screen’ let alone exercised.
> Increasing lubrication of the joints, ligaments and tendons – likewise, the well-researched yoga positions exercise the different tendons and ligaments of the body.

In a culture that idolizes and promotes food as instant gratification, it’s no surprise that obesity is out of control. We swim upstream against an overwhelming current of continuous media messages that implore us to, “eat, eat, and eat!” – and then to eat some more. No wonder so many dieters fail, or fail to maintain their weight after losing pounds. If you’re one of those frustrated dieters, it’s time to stop “dieting” and start “diet-sizing.”

“Diet-sizing” is what I call the simple habits that enable you to lose weight gradually and keep it off. It’s about developing a routine of sensible eating and moderate exercise tailored to fit you – one you can comfortably live with for the rest of your life.

Here are ten tips for helping to develop a diet-sizing plan right for you. I implemented and refined these ideas while losing 40 pounds in five months – and most importantly, while maintaining my target weight of 155 to 160 pounds for the past five years. Not only do I look and feel younger, I’ve also significantly reduced my cholesterol and blood pressure to the point that I’ve been able to discontinue medications.  >> read more
