Meditation Will Transform Your Life

Meditation can wipe away the day's stress, bringing with inner peace. How can easily learn to practice meditation whenever you need it most. The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. We will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness, but if our mind is not peaceful then we find it very difficult to be happy, even if we living in the best condition.

I have been Meditating twice a day, and I enjoy my self. It is may be strange but I fell happiest when sitting in perfect silence. The experience is difficult to express in word. It is peace of mind that you can understand when you have that experience your self. Some time meditation struggle to control the mind but it is fell effortless. You have to do meditation regular to get good result and get your mind peaceful. 

Meditation is an umbrella of the way to relaxed. There are many way, and
different type of meditation and relaxation that have Meditation component. All share that same goal of achieving inner peace meditation, also might be useful if you have medical worsened by stress. 

About fifteen years ago in India, Professor U.C.Rai accomplished some work with technique of Meditation called Sahaja Yoga. He was head of department at medical college in Delhi. He was suffered serious attacks and was surprised to find this technique of meditation seemed to alleviate this medical condition.

Usually we find it difficult to control our mind. It seems as if our mind is like a balloon in the wind blown here and there by external circumstances. If thing go well. our mind is happy, but if they go badly, it immediately becomes unhappy. For example, if we get what we want, such as a new possession or new partner, we become very excited and cling to them tightly.


Effect of Mantra; For thousands years, Yogi have been teaching the value of Mantra in stabilizing and clearing the mind, leading one to deeper spirituals. Modern neuroscience is also beginning to discover the relationship between mental functioning and the way words are used.

Mantra is universal; In reflecting on the relationship between mantra and brain physiology. It is most important to remember that mantra is not a practice solely used by the Eastern traditions. The use of mantra word, compact prayer or affirmation is recommend by virtually all religions and meditative tradition, although they might describe or use them in different ways. You can choose a Mantra or wording you like. 

Remembering the Mantra; In Yoga Meditation science, different means of using mantra are prescribed. The silent, inner remembering way of using mantra use considered a higher, more effective from then hearing, reading, or speaking the mantra. Many benefits come from the proper use of mantra, including dealing with ways of thinking, ability to learn, ways of perceiving, and positive use of emotions collectively, these benefits set the stage for the deeper practices of meditation, contemplation, and prayer. 

Meditation; If we train in meditation systematically, eventually we will able to eradicate from our mind the delusions that causes of all our problems and suffering in this way, we will come to experience a permanent inner peace, know as ''liberation'' or ''nirvana''. Then day and night in life after life, we will experience only peace and happiness.

How to Meditate; Meditation requires a practice to get most from Meditation you need to do it everyday. This requires a place and time you will not to disturbed. 

  • Sit with a straight back. Don't try to meditate lying down because you are likely to fall sleep. Meditation brings relaxation and peace but at the same time this is dynamic. Meditation is quite different then relaxation of sleep. When we really meditate, we are fully alert and conscious. Our sense of awareness is highest, you will have a positive feeling for the world and renewed sense of dynamism.
  • It is not necessary to meditate in lotus posture. It is fine to sit in folded legs or in a chair, as long as your back is straight.
  • Don't eat before meditation. After heavily meal your body will be lethargic with digestion.
  • After meal you have to wait 2 to 3 hours and after meditate you can eat after 20 to 30 min.
  • It is very helpful to take shower before meditation.
  • Burning candle are not necessary, but they can add little extra inspiration.
  • It is good to do meditation early in the morning. It's said the best time 3 am although. I feel is more important to be awake and not sleepy.
  • Meditation will transform your Life.

Healthy Eating Everyday

Eating a healthy, balanced diet is an important part of maintaining good health, and can help you feel your best. It doesn't have to be difficult either. Just follow these diet tips.
Eat the right number of calories for how active you are, so that you balance the energy you consume with the energy you use. If you eat or drink too much, you’ll put on weight. If you eat and drink too little, you’ll lose weight. The average man needs around 2,500 calories a day. The average woman needs 2,000 calories. Most adults are eating more calories than they need, and should eat fewer calories.
Eat a wide range of foods to ensure that you’re getting a balanced diet and that your body is receiving all the nutrients it needs.
Eat lots of fruits and veg.
It’s recommended that we eat at least five portions of different types of fruit and veg a day. It’s easier than it sounds. A glass of 100% unsweetened fruit juice can count as one portion, and vegetables cooked into dishes also count. Why not chop a banana over your breakfast cereal, or swap your usual mid-morning snack for some dried fruit? 
Eat more fish
Fish is a good source of protein and contains many vitamins and minerals. Aim to eat at least two portions a week, including at least one portion of oily fish. Oily fish is high in omega-3 fats, which may help to prevent heart disease. You can choose from fresh, frozen and canned; but remember that canned and smoked fish can be high in salt. Oily fish include salmon, mackerel, trout, herring, fresh tuna, sardines and pilchards. Non-oily fish include haddock, plaice, coley, cod, tinned tuna, skate and hake. Anyone who regularly eats a lot of fish should try to choose as wide a variety as possible.
Cut down on saturated fat and sugar
We all need some fat in our diet. But it’s important to pay attention to the amount and type of fat we’re eating. There are two main types of fat: saturated and unsaturated. Too much saturated fat can increase the amount of cholesterol in the blood, which increases your risk of developing heart disease. Saturated fat is found in many foods, such as hard cheese, cakes, biscuits, sausages, cream, butter, lard and pies. Try to cut down, and choose foods that contain unsaturated rather than saturated fats, such as vegetable oils, oily fish and avocados. For a healthier choice, use a just a small amount of vegetable oil or reduced fat spread instead of butter, lard or ghee. When you're having meat, choose lean cuts and cut off any visible fat. Learn more, and get tips on cutting down.
Eat less salt
Even if you don’t add salt to your food, you may still be eating too much. About three-quarters of the salt we eat is already in the food we buy, such as breakfast cereals, soups, breads and sauces. Eating too much salt can raise your blood pressure. People with high blood pressure are more likely to develop heart disease or have a stroke. Use food labels to help you cut down. More than 1.5g of salt per 100g means the food is high in salt. Adults and children over 11 should eat no more than 6g of salt a day. Younger children should have even less. Learn more in Salt: the facts.
Get active and healthy weight
Eating a healthy, balanced diet plays an essential role in maintaining a healthy weight, which is an important part of overall good health. Being overweight or obese can lead to health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, heart disease and stroke. Being underweight could also affect your health. Check whether you’re a healthy weight or not. Most adults need to lose weight, and need to eat fewer calories in order to do this. If you're trying to lose weight, aim to eat less and be more active. Eating a healthy, balanced diet will help: aim to cut down on foods that are high in fat and sugar, and eat plenty of fruit and vegetables. Don't forget that alcohol is also high in calories, so cutting down can help you to control your weight. If you're worried about your weight, ask your GP or a dietitian for advice. Physical activity can help you to maintain weight loss or be a healthy weight. Being active doesn't have to mean hours at the gym: you can find ways to fit more activity into your daily life. For example, try getting off the bus one stop early on the way home from work, and walking. Being physically active may help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. For more ideas, If you feel hungry after activity, choose foods or drinks that are lower in calories but still filling good.
Don't skip breakfast
Some people skip breakfast because they think it will help them lose weight. In fact, research shows that eating breakfast can help people control their weight. A healthy breakfast is an important part of a balanced diet, and provides some of the vitamins and minerals we need for good health. Wholemeal cereal, with fruit sliced over the top is a tasty and nutritious breakfast.
Don't get thirsty
We need to drink about 1.2 liters of fluid every day to stop us getting dehydrated. This is in addition to the fluid we get from the food we eat. All non-alcoholic drinks count, but water, milk and fruit juices are the most healthy. Try to avoid sugary soft and fizzy drinks that are high in added sugars and can be high in calories and bad for teeth. When the weather is warm, or when we get active, we may need more drink.

Yoga For Healthy Life

1. Find a Yoga Type

A little research will be required on your part. Many yoga classes are out there, and you may be turned off if you pick one that does not suit your personality and state of physical fitness. If going to a yoga studio for the first time gives you knots in your stomach, don’t worry, you can easily familiarize yourself with yoga at home before trying out a class. Starting a yoga practice doesn't have to be an anxiety producing experience for yoga beginners. Quite the opposite! By doing a little research and preparation, you can start Yoga at home quite comfortably.
In order to do yoga at home safely and avoid injury, it is essential to prepare properly. Practicing yoga at home is a time to gain a gradual understanding of how your body moves and become familiar with yoga postures. As a yoga beginner it is important to approach your practice systematically. Whether you are an athlete or new to physical activity, yoga will move your body in unfamiliar ways so it is imperative to start your yoga practice at home gradually. If you want to learn more about the anatomy of the body in relation to yoga. I got Simply Yoga DVD, you can search on line and have a look.

2. Find a Class

Online resources will help you find a yoga class in your area. You can also check local alternative newspapers or wellness magazines for listings or search online for "yoga" and the name of your town. You can do Yoga at home as well. Next, it is very helpful to have the appropriate tools to begin yoga at home. Yoga beginners can feel mystified when looking at all the props used to support a yoga practice. How can you possibly know what you need? Making a few simple investments up front will help you stay safe while doing yoga at home and allow you to enjoy your practice more. While it is ideal to practice on a hard floor, don’t let carpet stop you. A kitchen floor or outside area can work beautifully too. Just be sure you have enough space around you to stretch out fully.
3. Find Out What to Were

On the first day, you will not need to bring much except yourself and some comfortable, breathable clothing. Most studios have yoga mats that can be rented. Wearing  comfortable clothing that allows for a full range of motion is very important. A yoga mat will keep you from slipping and is a great investment for yoga beginners. Having two yoga blocks allows you to extend your reach in postures where your hands don’t quite touch the floor. This lets you experience a posture fully without compromising your alignment and risking injury. A  meditation cushion is not only for meditation! When sitting cross-legged on the floor, the knees should be at or below the level of the hips. Most yoga beginners knees are higher than the hips which creates a strain on the joints. Having a cushion will bring more ease into your seat allowing you to sit longer and they are fun home furnishings as well!  Yoga blanket are great tools to allow the body to relax into certain postures by taking strain off of tight muscles. These blankets are a firm weave and give sturdy support unlike bedding blankets. They are excellent for staying warm during final relaxation too.
4. Learn What to Expect

In a typical yoga class, the students place their mats facing the front of the room (often identifiable by a small altar or by the teacher's mat) in a loose grid. It's best not to line up your mat exactly with the one next to it because you and your neighbor will need some space in certain poses. Now that you have some basic supplies for your home yoga practice, it’s time to get started. Many yoga practitioners, including beginners, forget about the most important tool of all, water! Being well hydrated before you start yoga is vital. Having a water bottle lets you drink all you need and saves money over the disposable plastic bottles in the store. Ideally you won’t drink water during your yoga practice but only before and after. Yoga will build a purifying heat inside the body which is a good thing. As a yoga beginner, it is essential to know that this heat is a crucial part of the practice and drinking water during your yoga at home will only dampen this fire. Let it be!
There are many wonderful books to support you  in your home yoga journey. Simply Yoga key to building a solid foundation from which to grow. Simply Yoga by Yolanda Pettinato is a wonderful read about yoga and how to apply the principles to a modern life. Mark Ansari’s book, Yoga beginners  is a unique spiral bound book that you can set up like tent while practicing yoga at home. This makes it easy to see the pictures as you try the postures. A perfect companion for yoga beginners. Astanga Yoga & Meditation by Jean Hall And Doriel Hall Is very good for learn Yoga.

6. Dos and Don'ts

  • Have a big meal right before class. Try Eating lightly a few hours before class starts.
  • Drink Water during class, but have some before and after.
  • Wear shoes or socks during class.
  • Check out our Yoga Tips on line for more information.
  • Tell the teacher it's your first class (you probably won't be the only one).
  • Ask the teacher for help if you need it.
