Yoga For Health

We celebrated the 4th International Yoga Day yesterday. Many events were organized in different parts of the world to practice Yoga on this day. One gathering at Kota in Rajasthan registered a thumping participation of 105,000 people creating a Guinness record of performing yoga at a single platform in a single day.

But, Yoga is not for a simple display of events. It should be a part of your life. Regular performance of yoga or fitness exercise is good for one’s health.

You need not indulge in rigid formats of it. Choose some simple exercises for the movements and motion of your limbs and the complete body.

Some simple exercises are:

  • Moving your neck left and right, and, up and down rhythmically.
  • Stretching your arms sideways and up and down just like it used to be taught in primary schools.
  • Jumping while stretching the arms is also good.
  • Bending your body without bending your legs and touching the tips of your feet. This can be done both front and to your sideways also. When bending towards the front, you will keep your legs in attention position. When doing it sideways, you shall keep your legs in the stand-at-ease position.
  • If you can do it, you can try to bend towards your back also. But is very hard and risky. So, I do not advise it.
  • Lay on your stomach and lift your head forward along with your entire body, balancing your weight on your hands and toes. You will stretch forward slowly and bring your front portion up keeping the backside lower. Then again, slowly bring back your back body up keeping your front portion lower. You will not be touching the floor except with your hands and toes while doing the entire process.

 

The above are some of those simple exercises for your body to keep yourself fit always. Do each exercise for 5 times before proceeding to the next one.

Wish you all a Healthy Life.

Need for The Code of Conduct or Morality

We live in a society. No one can live aloof from society unless he has taken reclusion and goes to live in a deserted land, forest, or a hill-top.

And, you can see that one has to perform different actions to meet his daily requirements of life. Without action, there is no life. Just like I act, the other also may be acting in his own way. Thus, the entire society is the collection of various activities of various people.

Further, each of us often needs to interact with other people around us. We may have to take help from the other or need to help the other at times. Thereby, our actions affect the people around us and their actions, in turn, affect our lives.

Now, you may be realizing the concept of how each person’s actions can impact others’ lives.

We need to develop a code of conduct for all of our actions that shall be acceptable to all the members of the society. This code of conduct is known as Morality or Moral values of a society.

Each one of our actions should be performed in such a way that it does not impact a bad effect on your neighbor’s existence or life. If everybody tries to act in his own way, without caring for the existence of the other, it will be a chaos. The society can become tense and very difficult to live peacefully.

So, the need for some moral values and ethics of society arise. Our present society is lacking these moral values and gradually becoming very unruly and uncontrollable. That is why we are witnessing so many rapes, terror attacks, fraud cases, criminal activities, etc.

Our Governments and Judiciaries have become very weak to protect people.

If only each person understands his moral obligations and tries to differentiate between what is right and wrong, or good and bad, and tries to correct himself, then only can our humanity survive and lead a peaceful life.

Be Honest to Your Self

We need to be honest in all our actions and thoughts for achieving something. Honesty always leads to success.

If one is honest in his actions, he will not be worried. He enjoys the satisfaction that he has done his duty without evading or skipping anything. It will provide him with a nice feeling of joy and happiness. He can sleep well. He need not be afraid of anyone. Because he had done his duty perfectly well.

Otherwise, when he would have evaded his duty or responsibilities, he would be always feeling tense and be worried about being spotted and questioned. He would be unable to face his own self which will be pointed towards his guilt acts. He can’t be happy or enjoy his life peacefully.

So, we need to be honest always for our own sake. For our own happiness and our family’s happiness.

Worrying Does Not Solve Your Problems

I can’t understand why people keep worrying all through their life.

If you keep worrying, does your problems vanish? Or, do you think you can find solutions by keeping tense all through your life? No. You can never solve like that.

You will simply become tenser and frightened at your problems. That way, you can lose your stamina and the abilities to tackle problems.

You need to keep calm and strong to be able to face your problems and tackle them successfully. You cannot solve it if you are tense and disturbed.

You need to analyze the problem and its causes. Study the problem carefully to find ways of remedies in order to sort it out. This requires your presence of mind and some wisdom which is possible only if you are cool and strong.

So, try to be always cool, brave, and strong in order to solve your problems. You can take the help of your friends and others also while doing so.

Passing Your Days Pleasantly

via dVerse Poets Pub: Silly Fashion

By reading the above-linked poetry, I got this thought about many people finding it difficult to pass their time.

There are many people I come across who complain that days are longer and they find it very difficult with such long periods getting passed peacefully or pleasantly. They find nothing to do except sitting idle or sleeping in their rooms.

This idle and vacant period gives birth to unnecessary thoughts and worries disturbing their mental peace and even their sleep also. They always remain tense and anxious about their life.

So, it becomes necessary for any person to spend his time ideally and fruitfully in a positive way.

Plan yourself and create some daily routine to fill the gaps of idleness.

You can concentrate on things like exercise, meditation, prayer, house-cleaning, gardening, reading, writing, marketing, attending to temples or worship places and other/or other public events, etc. You can even spend some time in parks, playfields, libraries, etc.

Get engaged in something or other and you will never find any spare time or idle time when you indulge in such activities.

Your health will improve and you can live happily and fully satisfied with your life.

The Powers of Patience and Self-Control

Did you ever experience it?

The astonishing benefits of Patience and Self-Control!

Most people may regard your patience as a weakness and negative quality. But, it’s not like that in reality. Your patience gives you an opportunity and some extra time so that you can judge things more accurately. You can perceive everything more clearly and then plan for your proper response and action.

The same applies to Self-Control also.

Self-Control refers to the quality of being able to control your self from being responding in a violent or tense atmosphere. It makes you calm for the time being; so that you do not get carried over by your spontaneous emotions of tension, anger, despair, or depression, etc.

By practicing control over your instant emotions or feelings, you are able to calm yourself and, then, look after circumstances in a more clear and rational manner. You can perceive things and form a clear picture of the events so as to be able to judge them more accurately and wisely. Then, you can plan a course of action to tackle the problems by finding some reasonable and practical means of solving them more successfully.

So, both Patience and Self-Control are very important qualities of a successful person.

They provide you the cool and peaceful atmosphere that is required in order to access problems more properly and search for the meaningful ways of tackling or overcoming those issues hindering your progress in the life.

Let us succeed in our life by practicing these good qualities.
