Regular practice of yoga can improve self-esteem, boost energy, increase concentration, and improve heart condition. People are drawn to yoga as a way to keep lean, fit, and flexible. They discover yoga offers benefits on a spiritual and mental level.

The word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit term yuj meaning “Union” of mind, body, breath, spirit and most importantly of the self to the divine. This practice will provide you true self-realization and inner peace. If you can bring your mind and thoughts under control there are no limits. In fact, by practicing yoga you can slow down your aging process by keeping your body part well lubricated and reducing the catabolic process of cell deterioration. As you age, the ailments that lie submerged in your genes, like hypertension and diabetes start showing up, you can fight these forces by doing yoga. Yoga keeps your body happy. It improves your mood, improves blood circulation, enables deep concentration that promotes thinking and it enhances self-awareness. Yoga provides a constant source of energy. I believe it can make you feel younger.

Yoga breathing cleans the system, energizes the body, increases strength, and brings out the full potential of the person.

Before beginning ant yoga postures it is essential to warm up the muscles and joints for at least five minutes.
A well-balanced diet along with yoga is a match made in heaven!
In order to achieve good health, proper nutrition and exercise are necessary. For those still looking for that pill to achieve these goals, it simply does not exist.

The practice of yoga will promote mental well being and physical health. Many people also use yoga to fulfill the spiritual gap in their lives. Yoga can provide control of the body and the mind for attaining oneness with the universe and GOD. Yoga provides a higher state, a gradual rise of consciousness and quieting of the mind. Yoga brings more compassion and caring. The ultimate message of yoga is that happiness comes through control of the mind.

For me, living my life with purpose has been the key to my inner happiness. I have been blessed with the gift to heal, and it gives me great joy and satisfaction to relieve those who suffer. It also gives me great joy and satisfaction to make someone laugh, and relieve them of pain. My greatest satisfaction would be to look back on my life and know that I gave my all unselfishly to make a difference in the lives of those who suffered and struggled in their lives.
Studies have shown that purpose-driven people experience more contentment, and have more success than most other people. I believe, that, until you find your purpose and begin fulfilling it. You will never be truly happy. By taking the time to understand, your purpose in life. You will have more satisfaction, energy, and be more focused to achieve that purpose. Finding true purpose makes life more enjoyable. And more importantly, the mind and the spirit are infused with a mission and a direction. Creating a purposeful life begins with changing your attitude and thought. Give thanks to GOD for what you have, giving on to others without expecting anything in return brings me pure joy and happiness. It is such a shame that I can’t be with someone who shares these values of mine.

There is truth in the old saying, “Money can not buy happiness.”
Materialistic items and pleasurable activities may deliver happiness but over time it will fade. Happy people realize that they don’t get to be happy all the time. They can appreciate the brief moments, the small miracles, and the time to count their blessings. Happy people live longer, are healthier, are more successful, and are liked and respected more.

So start each day thinking of all the things you have to be thankful for and make a conscious effort to be happy!

This Is My Favorite Time Of The Year

I love this time of the year because from now on, I will be the only jet skier on the lake.  Aside from a few fishing boats, it will just be me!!!!!!  This is the time when I bring my huge surf board and attempt to master my yoga poses out on the lake on my board.  But I do miss living by the ocean.  At the end of my routine, as I would ride my ski in to have it hoisted up and put on the back of my truck.  A group of sea animals would follow me in and I would swim around with them for a bit.  I have some kind of connection with them that is  wonderfully blissful .  Well, I must go, I will be heading off to the lake in a few.  Hope you all have a wonderful day.  Sending out a big ball of life force energy.  Take from it if you want.  Hugzzzzzzz yogadeb

Let’s Have A Look At The Well-Known Types Of Yoga
