Weekly News in Health & Wellness

Weekly News in Health & Wellness

This week in wellness news, looking ahead, when we are not mindful, we speak without thinking. We allow our emotions to get out of control. We are worrying about the future or regretting the past. We feel the victim of circumstances, events, and others. Without mindfulness, we are a two-year-old child. We cry when our needs are not met. We don’t understand cause and effect. We expect others to take care of us. We can’t see past obstacles. We are powerless and overly emotional.

Read that and these other great stories yoga, health & wellness stories from around the web.

  • Essay: Using yoga to find the same freedom I took from ballet: “Somehow, over the years, I’d lost touch. I’d made a decision that last year’s obstacles would bear fruit. This year, I would work to be centered. This year, I would find my way back into a space of calm resistance.”
  • Yoga Beats Drugs for Depression: Study: “There are multiple studies that suggest the benefits of yoga in people suffering from depression,” she says. “Exercise has also shown to have significant benefit in alleviating depression as well as meditative practices. Since the practice of yoga combines both physical exercise and meditation, in my opinion, it should be considered as an adjunct treatment for depression.”
  • What does it mean to be mindful?: Mindfulness is being aware in each and every moment. How often do you go about your day without really being present? Have you ever driven to work and not realized how you got there? Have you found words coming out of your mouth without realizing it? When you are mindful each action, word, and thought are conscious. Being mindful means taking responsibility for what we are thinking, saying, and doing – and if it is not the experience we want, we change it.
