SAY NO TO GMO!
“If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.
The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.
If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign- body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on- alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction.”"

Since I was 13 years old I have been going to yoga classes and practicing at home. I am 20 years old now and I have recently committed myself to an Iyengar Yoga Studio near my place. I have only been going for 6 weeks to this new studio and it is hands down the best yoga I have ever done in my life!! Iyengar Yoga is all about breathe control, alignment in postures and building strength by holding poses longer. Every class I attend and when I practice at home, I learn something new about yoga and myself, and in 6 weeks, my flexibility has improved, I can hold poses for longer and overall my body and mind is feeling great. I am finding my yoga practice challenging because I am learning so much about myself. Every time I do my yoga I ask myself who am I becoming through this practice? I am loving every moment and being completely present and accepting of everything that will come of it. I highly encourage everyone to roll out their yoga mats and start practicing yoga at home, at a gym or a yoga studio. Even if you practice and stretch for 20 mins a day you will notice a difference in all aspects of your life! Happy yoga practice!
Apple Cider Vinegar:
A great way to use Apple Cider Vinegar is in your hair as this helps balance the PH levels. Rinse with a small amount ACV after shampooing, and the build up of chemicals and dryness in your hair will reduce. Avoid cheap supermarket shampoos as they contain dangerous chemicals.
- Epson salt is full of magnesium and sulphate: helps flush toxins and assists in the absorption of nutrients in the body and keeps enzymes activity regular.
- Use for a body detox: Put 1 cup of epson salts in a hot bath (add some lavender essential oils also) and soak for 30 mins. Epson salt baths soothe sore muscles, relieves stress, prevents heart diseases, relieves constipation and much more.
- Also reduces period pain as period pain is caused by lack of magnesium in the body.
Here are some useful tips for yoga:
- The time most suitable for Yoga is in the morning before breakfast when the mind is calm and fresh and the movements can be done with ease and vitality
- The most important things you’ll need to get started - as they say - are a big heart and a small ego.
- A person must seek a place of quietude, which is well ventilated, free from dust, insects, unpleasant smell, draught, and moisture. There should be no distraction whatsoever.
- You must empty your bowels and bladder, clean your nostrils and throat of all mucus, consume a glass of lukewarm water and then begin the exercises after 15 minutes
- Always remember that you should begin with the easy postures and then proceed to the difficult ones. One must follow the graded steps of Yoga
- In the beginning, all movements should be practiced lightly and you must cease to go further if fatigue shows.
- Yoga trainers recommend a balanced diet (sattwik). There should be an interval of 4 hours between meals
- The clothing should be loose and as scanty as possible, because maximum amount of the skin should be exposed to air.
- Form-fitting cotton/Lycra pants and shirts are the best.
- The breathing should be long and deep. The mouth should be closed and inhale and exhale only through the nose.
- You can check out some other commercial Yoga accessories, like Yoga belt, foam blocks, Yoga pillows and rubber mats.
