5 Mindful Tips To Achieve a Balanced Life

By newblog | October 18th, 2018 | LEAVE A COMMENT

We are living in an era where everything moves at the speed of light and creating a balance is a difficult task. We are bounded with strict deadlines and never-ending chaos that drags us down from a healthy and balanced well being. ‘Health is Wealth’ is a golden phrase and a healthy mind, body, and soul can achieve anything. But with the distractions present in our inner and exterior environment, preserving our health takes a back seat. This is where we lack and great care must be extended. Our well being is our real asset and must be protected to a healthy future.

A balanced life is not a myth and can be achieved merely by subtracting the distractions and multiplying the joyous moments that we cherish. Mindfulness is a state of being alert and living in the present which in turns help create a balanced living pattern.

Let us have a look at some simple and handy tips to achieve a more balanced life-

1. Set your intentions right-  

Intentions have a great deal of impact on us. Planting a thought and then feasting on it is harder than it sounds. Balance can be restored by merely manifesting it in our day to day activities. Voice your needs and don’t be shy to speak out your mind. Chant statements like “Everything in moderation” and make it your mantra for a successful and balanced life.

2. Check your breath-

This might sound simple and abrupt to you at first, but pressing our attention on minute things is not easy. Monitor your breath, be mindful of your thoughts and actions and live in present for a more mindful and balanced lifestyle. Equilibrium can be achieved by simply being vigilant about your breath and exhale out all the tensions and stress causing thoughts.

3. Respect your energy and get inspired-

Fatigue and exhaustion are the signs of imbalanced and unhealthy lifestyle. Look out for such symptoms, point it on immediately and take appropriate actions. When we feel fatigued and worn out; it is our body speaking to us. It is telling us to stop and have a good look at our self and invest in remedies. Counterattack your needs of caffeinated products, unjustified naps, and laziness with meditation, yoga or just a morning walk.  This will help restore a balance in your body-mind relationship and enrich our senses.

4. Yoga it out-

Yoga is a proven way to help relieve us from all kinds of mental and physical stress. It is a scientific way to achieve balance and restore a mutual relationship between your mind, body, and breath. Some great asanas for balance restoration are Child pose, Tree pose, Surya Namaskar, Half Moon pose, Warrior poses, and of course the Headstand.

5. Work on the lines of moderation-

In the end, it’s all about on who and on what you utilize your energy on. Be stingy when it comes to lending your energy and rethink before committing yourself to anything or anybody. Make it your mission to find that sweet spot where gratification comes naturally. Hear what is not being said and look out for signs that might bring you peace and quiet.

Our body talks a lot, it just takes time to listen to it. It is our job to listen, analyze, act on it and enjoy the blissful balance that unfolds with it.

5 Yoga Poses to Undo the Damage of your Desk Job

By newblog | October 14th, 2018 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Your job might be killing you?

 

This statement can actually turn out to be true in the recent working structure we have got yourself into.

Strict schedules and job-induced stress seems like a significant plot breaker when it comes to our well-being and our career. One dangerous colleague that is always present around in our working space is Sitting.

After smoking, sitting is the most common thing that is hampering our well being and killing yourself slowly but steadily. Researchers have given it a more scientific touch and linked the ill effects of long sitting hours to deskbound routines which in turns lead to heart diseases, diabetes, acute backache and studies that revealed that shorter lifespan is due to our sitting culture.

People who are involved in sitting jobs have revealed that sitting over a system for hours contributes to uncommon tightness in the hip area and legs, acute discomfort to neck and shoulder region along with severe spine issues.

Here are some easy Yoga poses that can help you combat the work stress and provide a physical flexibility-

Mountain Pose (Tadasana)

Allow yourself some moments of relief and combat the stress of the long working day with Tadasana. This is a powerful exercise that focuses on your back and chest. Mountain pose is an excellent pose to free up the tight chest muscles and provide flexibility.

Fish Pose (Matsyasana)

Fish pose is an excellent pose to reduce tension and is a therapeutic asana that helps fight fatigue, stress, and anxiety. Long working hours might satisfy your financial needs and gives a footstool for a sustainable lifestyle but depletes one from their well being if ignored. Matsyasana is practiced to release tension in the most functional areas like the neck, throat, and head and opens up the lungs for unresisted breathing.

Cat & Cow Pose (Marjaryasana & Gomukhasana)

The Marjaryasana & Bitilasana are one of the useful yoga asanas of all times and are a great stress busters. These asanas is an effective headache reliever and improves immunity. It also helps bring relief to your always strained back and painful neck. Cat and Cow pose brings great comfort to the neck area and brings the vertebrae back to homeostasis if practiced continuously.

Slow Neck Stretches

To combat neck ache with constant sitting hours and staring down at your system, yoga practitioners recommend a few rounds of yogic slow neck stretches. Our neck is the most sensitive part and is exposed to constant damage while we sit and work for long hours.  This is a simple exercise and can be practiced while standing in your cubicle.

Brahmari Asana

This breathing technique is a perfect antidote after a long, stressful day at work. Sitali breathing is practiced to release tensions out of the body and bring in positive vibes for our mind to feed on it. Breathing exercises are recommended to people who are easily distorted and have a hard time managing their temper.

Career is important and financial security is essential but as the old phrase goes- “Health is Wealth”. A healthy being is more vulnerable to catching the opportunities and acting on it. So get ready and live it out!

Let your Mood Swings Take a Walk with Yoga

By newblog | October 3rd, 2018 | LEAVE A COMMENT

With the recent changes in our living patterns, our health has been dramatically affected. A healthy person is one who has a sound mind, body, and soul, but with the adverse effects of changed living patterns, we are now faced with stressful events, unclear mind and state of distortion most of the time. This is just because we overlook the health hazards of stressful living.

Yoga is one of the proven ways that help people in rejuvenating to one’s senses and creating a balance between reality and illusions that are manifested by our mind. With an unsteady equilibrium, no individual can perform their functions effectively and thus loses control over their persona. Yoga is one such way to preserve the energies within and restoration of the balance is maintained.

Mood swings and distorted sense of living is the by-product of an unhealthy life and can tarnish our social and personal life if not tamed at the initial stage. Yoga is said to be the most natural and instant cure for uneven mood swings.

Here are few yoga poses that are scientifically proven to relieve one from unnatural mood swings-

1. Nadi Shodhana Pranayam– Alternate nostril breathing

Inhale the positive energies and breathe out the ones that create negativity. This simple breathing exercise is one of the most powerful technique to unblock the channels and acts as a natural mood stabilizer. This asana tends to unlock the chained energies thus calming the mind and eliminating mood swings.

2. Uttanasana- Standing forward bend

Man Yoga Practice Pose Training Concept

The asana is illustrated as bending in the forward direction and touching your foot. Uttanasana is believed to work on your hamstrings and calm your mind. Yoga professionals instruct individuals with hypertension and depression to practice this asana as it helps in restoration of the peace of mind and lowers the chances of mood swings.

3. Shishuasana- Child’s pose

The illustration of this asana is depicted as a relaxing child pose. This asana is beneficial for people suffering from backache, constipation and is very good for curbing the ill effects of mood swings as it calms the nervous system. However, a pregnant woman must avoid this pose.

4. Bhujhangasan- Cobra Pose



Commonly known as cobra pose, this asana is crucial in eliminating stress and fatigue. This asana enhances flexibility and strengthens muscles while restoring calmness and minimizing mood swings.

5. Shavasana -Corpse Pose

Corpse pose is the one asana that relaxes the whole body and mind without moving a single muscle in the body and with a blank mind. This makes it the most challenging asana as we humans tend to think and act on the actions of our mind.
This asana is administered as lying flat on the ground like a corpse and helps in reducing headaches, mild depression and calms the mind, body and the inner spirit.

Yoga is a centuries-old methodology and a proven scientific way that helps us restoring the imbalances in our lifestyle caused by various internal and environmental factors. Mood swings and losing the sense of self-realization can be treated effectively by practicing Yoga.

So, let us focus on eating healthy, meditating and relishing each day of our life!

The Global Rise of Yoga

By newblog | September 23rd, 2018 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Introduction to Yoga

The presence of Yoga goes beyond more than 5000 years in India when it was carried out by hermits to attain oneness with the universe. Yoga in Indian tradition is a combination of 8 branches in Ashtanga Yoga namely Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi. The overall practice of yoga has potential benefits to the mind and body in the present world with rising treatments sought for stress management, weight management and body ache due to solitary desk jobs.

 

Global Awareness of Yoga

According to the Yoga Guru BKS Iyengar “Yoga allows you to find an inner peace that is not ruffled and riled by the endless stresses and struggles of life.” Yoga as a concept has been in practice since over the millennia and the only written record of present-day practiced yoga is Yoga Sutra by Sage Patanjali. It is 2000 years old treaty devised for gaining mastery over the mind and body. Yoga became more relevant in India and abroad in the early 19th century through varied saints like Saint Vivekananda, Paramahamsa Yogananda, Osho etc. Each of these saints made Yoga prevalent in India as well as in the West through their speeches and self-involvement in the science of Yoga.

 

Yoga and Science

The word yoga has been derived from the Sanskrit word Yuji which means “to yoke or join together”, which means the union of mind and body. Yoga is a science in itself where the physical activation of the body through asanas, Surya namaskars blended in with breath control and meditation. In the present fast life where people are competing every day with machines, Yoga aids in slowing down and relieves the stress caused due to it.

This has been supported by science in varied researches. For example, in a research conducted in US where 64 women with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) underwent Yoga sessions for a month and 52% of the group who continued to practice the same no longer felt the symptoms.  This shows that Yoga aids in reducing stress and brings peace of mind.

 

Yoga and Lifestyle

In studies and researches, it has been found that Yoga in the present day situation is the best way to lead a happy and contented lifestyle. We all aspire to have a quality life and for this purpose, we go to great lengths. After all of this toil, at the end of the day, often we find ourselves exhausted and tired but not satisfied at all. It is due to the lack of attention to self-care. In search of happiness outside, we tend to lose our innate energies to anxiety, fear, anger, jealousy and greed.

In one of the studies conducted in a big corporate organisation, where 135 senior managers were asked to Practice Yoga for 6 months – they claimed that the practice of Yoga brought in significant changes in the quality of life, moods, fatigue levels and their management style including both their personal and professional front.

The acceptance of Yoga is increasing in the world at large. With a lot of studies and researches done in the field has authenticated the benefits of the same. Wellzee.com has been set up to address health, stress and diet-related goals and challenges and to contribute to individuals at various stages of their lives.

There are multiple illnesses these days which strike sooner or later. These are mostly non-communicable in nature, like high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, asthma, stress related diseases and cancers. Most of these are caused by lifestyle issues, pollution and wrong eating habits. Many a times, one may not get these diseases but get minor things cold, flu, fever, falling ill frequently and so on. The other problem faced are orthopedic in nature, ranging from mild aches and pains to arthritis and more severe bone and joint problems.

THE SOLUTION

YOGA FOR ARTHRITIS

By Team Wellzee | August 3rd, 2016 | LEAVE A COMMENT

arthritis is preventable or manageable

Arthritis is no longer a problem associated with advancing age. It is now impacting people even in their 30s and 40s. However, arthritis is not really a disease. A majority of people with pathology of arthritis do not get any pain. Most of them also do not find their daily activities being impacted.

There is a small proportion of people who do get affected by it in a minor or major way. Many of them manage it well. Many are unable to manage or bear the pain and opt for surgery.

However, if one has mild symptoms of arthritis or is in the resolving phase, Yoga asanas can help. In many cases, the condition does not deteriorate at all.

YOGA FOR DIABETES

By Team Wellzee | August 1st, 2016 | LEAVE A COMMENT

 

Diabetes Background

Diabetes is fast set to become a major health problem with millions of people across the World who will get this problem. It was previously thought to be genetic in nature. This was especially thought to be true in USA, India, South Asia and some Mediterranean countries. But Diabetes is no longer restricted to those who have a genetic predisposition. It is now a full-fledged ‘lifestyle disease’ and can happen to anyone even if you do not have it in your genes. What this means is that even though one does not have a genetic tendency, you can easily get it if you do not take care of your health, lifestyle, exercise and eating habits. Diabetes was diagnosed and understood in ancient India and was known as ‘madhumeha’ in ancient Indian texts. It affected a relatively smaller proportion of the population. However, in today’s times, it has already impacted millions of people and millions more are at risk. It is estimated that over the next two or three decades, close to ten percent or more of the World’s population will have Diabetes.

Children are also no longer immune to this lifestyle disease. Now we have many children below the age of thirteen who get Type 2 Diabetes or lifestyle related diabetes. There are many babies born with diabetes which is non-genetic or non -Type A diabetes. This has now been linked to lifestyle causes of the mother. Since this is one of the major health challenges of our times, let us look at the causes of Diabetes

Causes of Diabetes

There is a misconception that diabetes is linked to your weight or obesity. Obesity is a trigger for diabetes. However, diabetes is not linked to your weight at all. Even thin people can and do get diabetes. Apart from genetics and weight gain, there are many reasons for diabetes. Some of them have been listed below:

  • Incorrect eating and sleeping habits and overeating. Eating or drinking the wrong things at the wrong times and eating a lot of quantity is a problem.
  • Lack of physical activity and exercise of some form. Most of our lives are sedentary which causes glucose imbalances in the blood.
  • Air pollution is now established as a major cause which can cause metabolic changes and cause diabetes. This is something we cannot do anything about but we can at least make sure we take care of the other causes and minimize the impact of pollution.
  • Pollutants and hormones in foods, especially in processed non-vegetarian foods and vegetables grown using chemicals. Most of the food across the World is only prepared with pesticides, hormones, chemicals and preservatives. This causes diabetes.
  • Combining certain food groups causes diabetes. A prime example is combining beef or red meat with dairy products, milk or yogurt. We also mix fruits with vegetables or have fruits with meals. This also can lead to diabetes.
  • Stress is a major game changer and can cause blood sugar imbalances. In fact, this is one of the main causes for glucose / insulin ratio imbalances leading to chronic and lifetime diabetes.
  • Alcohol even in moderation and substance abuse cause insulin imbalances. There are lobbies which ‘tom tom’ the benefits of alcohol. They conveniently forget that alcohol causes diabetes and damages the liver as well as the isle of Langerhans which produce insulin.

Why Worry About Diabetes

Diabetes by itself is not a disease in that sense. It is actually a symptom that the there is an imbalance created in the body. There is something which has gone wrong and we need to correct it. If we do not take action to change our lifestyles or eating habits, then a lot of other diseases can occur. Diabetes is the gateway to ill health. Therefore, controlling your sugar or correcting the Insulin – glucose imbalance is important. In fact, it has been found that people who become aware that they have diabetes, start improving their health and lifestyle. The problem is that at least half of all people who have diabetes (estimates) do not know that they have it, as they are not tested.

Diabetes Is Curable or Reversible

Till now the popular belief was that once you get diabetes, it remains with you forever. However, this is not the case. There are many interventions available in conjunction with your regular medications that help to correct or improve diabetes. Three of the most important interventions are changing food habits, Yoga and stress management.

In many cases, effective management of the condition ensures there is no deterioration of health at all and in fact, many diabetics are healthier than even non-diabetics. This is because they take corrective action and become more disciplined. A lot of diabetics do not get cardiac problems or cholesterol as they become aware earlier on and take good care of themselves.

Yoga and Diabetes Research

There has been a large amount of research done now on Yoga and its impact on Diabetes. There have been multiple studies done in India which show that most diabetics manage to reduce their blood sugar in just six months of regular practice. Most of them reduce blood sugar by half and more than a third reach normal sugar levels. The HBA1C tests become normal and urine sugar also goes down or disappears. This implies that severe diabetics are able to go off insulin or reduce their medication by half or more. Yoga also helps other co-morbid conditions like high blood pressure, stress and cholesterol. So if these also reduce or disappear, diabetes starts reducing or also gets totally reversed.

There has been a recent cohort study concluded by Jaslok Hospital in Mumbai with astounding results. Persons with borderline diabetes or pre-diabetics reverted to normal or did not deteriorate for as long as ten to fifteen years; without any medication! They were only taken through a Yoga program and had to practice it regularly. Some of them were just advised some herbs or meditation and none of them were given insulin. None of these patients developed heart or cholesterol problems. This clearly proves the efficacy of Yoga in prevention and reversal of diabetes.

All of this clearly underscores the importance of Yoga for Diabetes. There are many teachers who give different asanas and techniques which one can practice for diabetes. Each one of them claims that their practices are the best. However, there are two practices derived from the Upanishads and from traditional Hatha Yoga scriptures which provide astounding results for diabetes and all other cardio metabolic diseases also. Both of these techniques and be viewed and followed at the links given below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbZCPNiouHM&feature=youtu.be

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttqyOw9xgCk&feature=youtu.be

Of course you need to practice a proper Yoga for Diabetes program for a few months. If you like the videos above, then you may opt for the online yoga for diabetes program given on the link below, to take charge of your sugar levels.
