When we have too many things to do, too little time and no energy, stress is natural. In today’s world, we cannot reduce our needs, what we have to do is increase our energy level. Energy level increases when we change our habits.
- Eat proper and healthy food.
- Make time for rest.
- Think positive.
Meditation Warning It’s preferable to meditate before meals since during meditation our metabolism slows down whereas after food our metabolism goes up.
What are Chakras and what do they do? Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, Ayurveda is a term that refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head. To visualize a chakra in the body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy where matter and consciousness meet.
Awareness to which of your chakras are out of balance is key to aligning them. Our bodies are in constant flux between balance and imbalance.
