Hatha Yoga and its Benefits

Image
HATHA Yoga Ha refers to “ Sun " and Tha refers to “ M oon ”   It is the uniting of sun and moon - the Masculine and Feminine .  It simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures.  HATHA YOGA has been practiced for at least 5000 years, its actual origin is difficult to determine. But the term ‘ Hatha ' was first recorded in the 11th century and it wasn't until the late 19th century that it came to America, gaining mainstream popularity in the 1960s.  The 8 limbs of Hatha Yoga are defined as Yama (abstinences), Niyama (observances), Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing), Pratyahara (withdrawal), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (absorption).  The eight limbs form a sequence from the outer to the inner.  Hatha Yoga is considered a gentle yoga that focuses on static poses and is great for beginners.  A traditional Hatha Yoga practice will incorporate breathing, meditation and basic postures.  Now we will start with Hatha Yoga postu

Happiness is the key of living a Healthy Life

HAPPINESS   When I was a kid I had a doll. Her name was Betty. I took her wherever I used to go. She stayed with me all the time. I used to talk to her, do her hair, gave her a bath, take her to swings to garden, played with her all the time, share her secrets and whatnot. We were like best buddies. Whenever I talked to her the feeling I had was amazing. It is not something I can’t put into words. It was like I was happiest with her. Isn’t it strange that I was happy with what you call is merely a “doll”? Well back then when we were young when we were kids we all used to be happy in small things. My dad would bring me chocolate on his way back home from the office. My mom would make me my favorite dish. Granny would tell me my favorite fairytale.  Grandpa played with me and taught me coloring. And I felt like I am the happiest person alive on this planet or even in the universe. Small things would make me happy, very small. And not just me every kid would be happy if he or she had thos

Meditation and its effects

Meditation What is Meditation :-   In simple language, Meditation means focus – focus on one particular or specific thing.  It could be anything, listening to music or working on something but it's just that there should be a focus on one particular activity. One can start by closing the eyes with gently breathing (Inhaling and exhaling) and focusing between the eyebrows. We should try to stop the activities going on in the mind and body. When we focus, our brain stops doing its work and stops processing the information as actively as it normally does.  Meditation reduces the flow of incoming information coming in the brain on and off.  There are 3 types of lobes in our brain.  1- Frontal lobe  2- Parietal lobe  3- Occipital lobe  Frontal lobe :- This lobe is responsible for emotions, planning, memory, judgments, acts as a control panel. Meditation  stops all the processes of the frontal lobe.  Parietal lobe :- It is the middle part of the brain. All sensory information is done by

Satisfaction, Meaning and its Nature

Image
Satisfaction I guess this is the toughest 12 letter word you could ever understand in your life. You know what the word means, it means the feeling of pleasure and joy that you get when you have achieved something that you wanted. It’s pretty simple this way because it’s simple English that you gotta understand but when you look deep into the word you realize you never got the actual meaning of the word. In life, you are never satisfied with what you have. You sure maybe grateful and thankful for what you have but you are NEVER satisfied. You always have that urge or the desire to achieve more and more in life, which is good partly because you want good things to happen to you and you want to achieve your dreams but if you look at it from another point of view, it's worst. All you do is run for the things which you want in life. You never just sit and think and appreciate what all you have. Appreciating something when you have it is way better than regretting it when you

Failure is not the end but a new beginning

Failures What is that which keeps you away from your dreams? What is that which lets you down every time? What is that which stops you from achieving something? The questions that you can ask from yourself Your dreams are unattainable? NO! You don’t have resources? NO! You aren’t worth it? NO! The reason is really simple. It is because you are afraid. You are afraid to fail. This is the worst fear you could ever have. Every other fear only stops you to do a certain thing but fear of failure stops you from the most important thing in life, which is winning. When you are afraid to fail, you never try things. All you have in your head is what if I fail? Don’t let that question come in your head, not even just for once and if does comes in your mind just avoid that question and give it a try. It is really no big deal if you fail because you will have an experience at least. If that question is still there in your head then do some basic analysis.  Answer your question yoursel

Simple Guidance to have a strong Will Power

WILL POWER Imagine you are a doctor. You have got two patients with the same illness I repeat EXACT SAME  ILLNESS .   You performed surgery on both of them and they have a recovery period of say 30 days. You leave them with nurses. Nurses check upon them regularly and you are updated. Now after two weeks a nurse came to you and said that it is an emergency with the two patients. You run to them and check and realize that one of them is doing great, really really great and he was going to be okay soon but the other, he just grew weaker and weaker. You checked up on him, as per his reports he was okay. Their reports were the same. But still, he was miserably weak. And probably he was going to die soon. Do you know the reason why this would happen? The answer is really simple. It is the WILL POWER . The first person was strong mentally and he had the desire to live and enjoy the rest of his life. He wanted this for his family and close ones. He knew that it wasn’t the end. He

Acceptance is the key towards a better life

ACCEPTANCE Have you ever sat peacefully and thought about your faults?             Are you ever in solace and think of all the mistakes you have done unknowingly? When you are alone, do you think of the sins you have committed? Do you ever think of your actions which might have hurt others? Most of us don’t do that because we think we are always right. We never realize that what wrong we had done or even if we do realize we are wrong, we are just not ready to accept our mistakes. Everyone is wrong sometimes, everyone commits mistakes. It is not only you or me, sometimes high-rank holders do. See, we are humans and no machines. We are designed in a way in which errors and mistakes are normal. It is really okay if you are not perfect because no one really is. Steve jobs and bill gates are college dropouts. Walt Disney was told by his editor that he lacked imagination. Albert Einstein was mentally retarded until he was 10.   Now you will interrupt me saying that they are big

The Modern Rules Of being a Winner

Being a Winner                        Is it easy ? Can everyone be one ?  Can I do it ?   Am I worth it ?   If you ask yourself these questions before starting something you wanted to do so lemme tell you that you are never going to be one for sure.  Being a winner ,  first thing you have to do is have faith in yourself.  You should tell  YOURSELF  that I’m worth it and I can do it no matter how hard things get.  You should stand by yourself when no one else does.  What if  Thomas Edison  would have gave up 10th time or 50th time or 100th time or 500th time when he was trying to invent bulb.  Might we would still be doing our work under lamppost and with lanterns.  We would still be depending on sun for light as our ultimate and only source.  But no, we are using lights and bulbs only because of one reason, which is  perseverance .  Edison  did not gave up on himself and his dreams though he failed  999  times but he still was not ready to give up.  He had determination and had faith i
