Even simple things can do wonders for the quality of our lives.

Know about yourslef

We need to know a little bit about the layers of our existence- body,breath,mind,intellect,memory,ego and the self. It helps one to live in the moment and cope with life. Take a week off every year, like one takes for a car servicing. During that time, align oneself with nature, wake up with the sunrise, practice yoga, eat proper food and spend some time creatively, like singing.

Meditation

Meditation gives one deep rest. the deeper one is able to rest, more dynamic will one be in activity. For holistic health, meditation is the key. Meditation is a mind without agitation,hesitation and anticipation and a mind which is in the present moment.

Learn about breathing

Breathing is life. Yet neither at school nor at home, have we been taught its importance. If we can understand the power of the breath, we can have a say over our thoughts, our feelings. We can control our anger and negative moods.

Eat right

For a healthy body and to control our emotions, thoughts and actions, we need to observe what we eat. It is said that a healthy minds resides in a healthy body. The kind of food we eat has an impact on our body and mind. Fresh foods, fruits and some vegetables have more impact than canned foods.Fresh foods bring ideal nourishment, promote vigor,vitality,endurance and longevity.

Give time to yourself

Everyday, we are engaged in gathering information and we do not take out time for ourselves- to think and reflect. Few quite moments are the source of creativity. Silence heals and rejuvenates and gives one depth and stability. Some time during the day, sit for a few minutes, get into the cave of your heart, eyes closed, and kick the world away like a ball.

Well stated and each of the categories is vital to our lives and development as better humans. And you are very correct about breathing - it needs to be explored more - the uses of various types of breathing adds to our awareness or creates a calming inner space. Thanks for your article. ~Marilyn
