Breathing and Relaxing

You don't need to fall into the stress mode of life. You can use breath to relax, rather than stress, your mind and body. Yoga helps you to relearn that natural state that your body and mind want to be in: relaxation.

Deep breathing is both calming and energizing. The energy you feel from a few minutes of careful breathe is not nervous or hyper, but that calm, steady energy we all need. Slow, steady, and quiet breathing gives a message to your nervous system: Be calm.

Whole books have been written on yoga breathing. Here is one 5-minute Breath Break. (Read through the instructions several times before you try the practice.)

Breathing and Relaxing

  • 1. Sit with your spine as straight as possible. Use a chair if necessary but don't slump into it. Feet flat on the floor with knees directly over the center of your feet. Use a book or cushion under your feet if they do not rest comfortably on the floor. Hands are on the tops of your legs.
  • 2. Close your eyes gently and let them rest behind closed lids.
  • 3. Think about your ribs, at the front, back, and at the sides of your body. Your lungs are behind those ribs.
  • 4. Feel your lungs filling up, your ribs expanding out and up. Feel your lungs emptying, your ribs coming back down and in. Don't push the breath.
  • 5. The first few times you do this, do it for 2 to 3 minutes, then do it for up to 5 to 10 minutes. At first, set aside a time at least once a day to do this. When you learn how good it makes you feel, you'll want to do it at other times as well.
Just as one stressful situation goes into your next challenge, relaxing for a few minutes every day gradually carries over into the rest of your daily life and activities.

The Obvious Benefit of Auto Navigation Systems

If you've been in the market for a car, truck, or SUV recently, then I'm sure you've seen the vast number of vehicles sporting shiny new auto navigation systems as part of this or that package upgrade. These systems are delightfully handy when you find yourself stuck in traffic that is moving slower than the snail that just passed by or that roads are closing due to nasty weather or traffic pile ups. The truth of the matter is that they can come in equally handy when faced with every day driving if you allow them to be.

Many people unfortunately purchase these systems because they seem like a good idea at the time and then never really get their money's worth. Very few investments in technology are worthy if you aren't going to at least get your money's worth. Auto navigation systems are great when you find yourself lost in the woods so to speak, but they can help you find alternate routes when traffic is busy on your traditional drive to the grocery store. They can help you avoid roads that have been closed for maintenance, or even find a quick way around work that is being performed along your route. These devices can also help you find shorter routes to events and such than you may have been aware existed before and they aren't commanding nearly the price they brought in a mere two years ago. In other words, this convenience is becoming much more affordable.

The Obvious Benefit of Auto Navigation Systems

One thing you must keep in mind when considering a new car or a new auto navigation system for an existing car is how much you think you will actually use your system. Even if you save it for emergency use alone, it is quite possible that in an emergency this nifty device will be worth ten times what you originally paid for it because it could save jobs, time, or even lives (particularly if you are lost and searching for a hospital). For me, it is hard to put a price tag on the comfort that owning a device such as this would bring but it is definitely worth the $500-$1,000 that is currently being charged. Keep in mind that when these systems first hit the market $1,000 was on the ultra low end.

If you never use this system and only get it because it looks cool, then you definitely are not getting your money's worth. Technology is only good when it's useful to someone. Sitting there unused it is assisting no one and is essentially a waste of money. On the other end of the spectrum however, you have people like me. By 'like me' I mean those of us who could get helplessly lost and flustered finding our way out of the driveway on dark and moonless nights. I use my auto navigation system like an extra pair of eyes. My system is not the top of the line system that advertises an uncanny ability to help you parallel park your car, but it is nice enough to help me figure out where I am and how to get where I'm going from there. For me, that is exactly enough to be worth every penny.

Beyond that, my navigation system doesn't require tricky folds or my pulling off onto the shoulder in order to read. It talks to me (without losing it's temper) and tells me where to go, I love that about my system. I don't know about the rest of you, but map reading is not something I've ever been gifted at. That fact may have a little to do with the fact that it was not something I was ever terribly interested in. Couple that with my poor attention to landmarks and I was a driving disaster. Literally, I got lost at least once, if not twice a week before making the move into the modern world of navigation. I have absolutely no regrets and while I can't promise that you will love your auto navigation system as much as I love mine (all systems are not created equal), I can pretty much bet that your driving, particularly on long road trips, will go much more smoothly than without one.

Yoga exercises strengthen your body and make it more flexible

Exercises. Yoga exercises strengthen your body and make it more flexible. Yoga also calms your mind and gives you energy. In active sports or strenuous exercises, you use up energy. In yoga classes, students report that they feel tranquil after a class, yet have more energy. Slow and steady motion is the key to going into or coming out of the postures. You hold a yoga pose for several seconds or even minutes and give attention to full, quiet breath. Your yoga instructor will always encourage you to relax as the exercises are being done.

Yoga exercises strengthen your body and make it more flexible

You gently place your body into yoga postures. Done correctly, there's very little chance of injury or muscle stress. A particular asana is not repeated dozens of times, nor are you ever encouraged to push yourself too much.

A yoga session is designed for balance. You stretch to the right and then to the left. You bend back and then forward. You learn to recognize when one side is stronger or more flexible than the other. Thus harmony and balance are achieved with yoga practice.

People of all ages can practice yoga exercises. They are easily modified to meet your needs and physical condition. Don't be put off by the difficult looking postures you may see in a yoga book. A skilled teacher can adapt most asanas by using chairs, cushions, even a wall or other props. A yoga practice can be tailor-made just for you. If something is really impossible for you to do, just forget it. Never compete with yourself or others. Yoga is a stress-free but powerful way to exercise.

Yoga is good for increasing your flexibility and relieving stress, but it doesn't take the place of aerobic exercise. You should still do regular, aerobic exercise, which increases your cardiovascular fitness, helps you lose weight, and, for people with non-insulin-dependent (type II) diabetes at least, improves blood glucose control.

Hatha Yoga

Hatha yoga is an ancient hindu system of working with the human nervous system. Because it releases tension and endows one with renewed energy, far too many 20th century people, yoga teachers included, have come to look upon the venerable Indian physical science as solely an exercise for health and vitality of mind and body. It is that, but it is also much more. Hatha yoga practices are more spiritual than physical, more subtle than gross, more a means of understanding than an exotic way to relieve stress or limber up the body.

Hatha Yoga

The sages who developed hatha yoga designed it as a way to gain conscious control of our life energies, a way to go within, to harmonize the external so the innermost Self could be encountered. To them, it was about states of consciousness, about living a divine life, and it was a preparation for meditation.

As you perform the asanas, concentrate on feeling the energies within the nerve currents. Sensitize yourself to knowing when the body has been in each position long enough to tune the nerve currents involved. Then shift smoothly into the next asana. It's like a dance, a deliberate, fluid dance. During all postures, inhale using the diaphragm, not the chest muscles. Do not stretch unduly or force the body. Relax into the poses. Don't worry if you can't perform them all perfectly. In time, you will find the body becoming more flexible and supple. Free the mind of thoughts and tensions. You will be more aware, more alive, more serene.

While there are many more complex hatha yoga routines, these twenty-four asanas provide a balanced system for daily use. For the simple purpose of quieting the mind in preparation for meditation, this is all you will ever need. For best results, hatha yoga should be taught personally by a qualified teacher. These instructions and drawings are meant only as a rudimentary aid. For more elaborate regimens, inquire at a recognized school specializing in hatha yoga.

The scene of hatha yoga has a spiritual purpose - to balance physical and physic energies in preparation for meditation. It is not only meant to make us young, beautiful or creative, but to aid us in quieting the mind, body and emotions that we may awaken enlightened consciousness & know the Self within.

Dealing with Asperger Syndrome

Asperger Syndrome is a relatively mild form of autism that effects people in different ways than regular autism. Because it usually does not affect language, many people with Asperger Syndrome go undiagnosed. This is the one form of autism that is usually not caught at an early age and is instead a disorder that develops later in life. Asperger Syndrome, however, can be a very difficult condition to have, so as soon as you suspect yourself or your child of having communication and social behavior problems, see your family doctor.

Asperger Syndrome

Many famous and successful people were diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. Historians even suggest that Einstein and Mozart each suffered from this disorder. It is important to note that no form of autism is a form of mental retardation. In fact, most people with Asperger Syndrome are very intelligent. Asperger Syndrome does not dictate mental ability, but rather makes it difficult for people to communicate in social settings, much in the same way a typical autistic child has trouble with behavior in groups. When this disorder goes undiagnosed, children do not get the help they need, leading to problems in school such as bullying. Most children are relieved to find out they have Asperger Syndrome instead of just thinking they are less of a person. By getting diagnosed, not only can you or your child put a name to the problems, but it is then also possible to get treated to improve your overall situation.

Some symptoms to watch out for if you suspect Asperger Syndrome are some of the same symptoms that people with full-blown autism experience. This includes social confusion, first and foremost. Many people with Asperger Syndrome find it very difficult to deal with transition or change, wanting everything to stay the same. A quickly changing environment is especially confusing. People with Asperger Syndrome also may say rude or inappropriate things when they don't mean to do so, and may not be able to understand others' thought processes. Another common trait they share with autistic individuals is fixation, although people with Asperger Syndrome usually have more control over their fixations, which take the form of highly focused interests. If you suspect yourself or a loved one of this disorder, these are just a few of the signs for which you should be watching. You doctor should be able to answer further questions and provide both reading material and treatment for this disorder.

Doctors and Diagnosing Autism

When a doctor first suggests that your child has autism, your immediate reaction might be disbelief and the urge to seek a second, third, or even fourth opinion. Because autism is so different in every child, it is a tricky disorder to diagnose. However, there are a few key ways in which doctors can efficiently identify autism in children, and if your infant or toddler is showing any of these signs of autism, you should visit your pediatrician immediately to express your concerns.

Doctors and Diagnosing Autism

Autism occurs at a young age, rather than being a disorder an older child might develop. It is usually detected before the age of three, and many times much earlier. The first signs or autism are usually delays or regression in speech communication. Another early sign is abnormal behavior in group play situations and other social situations. The first step to diagnosing autism is a thorough physical examination as well as a review of family history by a specialist. Although your regular pediatrician will be able to spot unusual behavior, you'll want your child to be examined by a professional who specializes in autism and other similar diseases to make sure your child is properly diagnosed.

The next step includes hearing tests. Sine language and social skill delays could be due to inadequate auditory sensations. There are two types of auditory tests, one of which records the tones a child can hear and the other of which requires sedation and measures the brain response to certain tones. Of course, the first method is preferred, since it does not require any use of a sedative. After auditory testing, your doctor may encourage testing your child for Fragile X syndrome, which often times goes hand in hand with autism. Metabolism can also be evaluated. To do this, your doctor will need a blood or urine sample to analyze DNA.

An MRI or CAT scan can also be helpful in diagnosing autism. The important thing is to work with doctors you trust. Second opinions can be very helpful, but when your child has been diagnosed, stick with one doctor so that treatment is uniform and so that your child will get used to this person. Autism is difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to treat, so remember that you should begin to learn as much as possible about the disorder as soon as your doctor identifies it. If you have yet to speak with your doctor about abnormal behavior in your child, do so immediately. By detecting autism early, you give your child a better chance at becoming a high-functioning individual with much more opportunities in life.

Seperti yang terjadi pada seorang pria yang rumah tangganya hampir rusak akibat sihir. pemicunya ternyata si pria menolak cinta wanita yang menjadi rekan kerjanya.

Ini kisahnya

Cinta Ditolak Dukun Bertindak

Berawal dari SMS

Saya sudah menikah selama hampir 15 tahun dan dikaruniai 4 anak. Pada suatu pagi saya menerima SMS dari seorang karyawati di tempat kerja saya menanyakan kabar saya yang tidak sehat. Saya memang tidak pernah menyimpan setiap nomor telepon perempuan lain kecuali karyawati lain untuk memudahkan urusan kerja.

Istri saya memang kuat indera keenamnya. Dia bisa tahu bahwa karyawati itu bukan teman perempuan yang dia kenal. Saya pun memberitahu dia saya juga tak kenal. Sebab memang saya tak kenal. Namun istri saya diam saja.

Ketika saya masuk kerja, si karyawati ini tanya kenapa tak balas SMS dia. Saya hanya bilang saya tak tahu karena nomornya tidak ada dalam kontak saya.

Selalu Cerita Kebaikan Istri

Hubungan saya dan istri memang baik. Selain ramah, istri saya memang seorang yang periang. Tanggung jawab dia pada saya dan anak-anak memang tak perlu diragukan. Dan saya selalu menceritakan pada kawan-kawan saya bahwa istri saya memang tiada gantinya. Jika ditakdirkan beristri lagi, saya akan melakukannya jika istri saya sudah meninggal dunia. Itupun saya merasa mustahil ada wanita yang bisa menggantikan tempatnya. Rupanya pernyataan saya telah menimbulkan rasa tak senang pada karyawati tersebut.

Si Karyawati Mulai Panggil Sayang

Pada suatu hari si karyawati tersebut dapat pindah kerja di kota lain. Karena saya memang tipe orang yang ramah, saya suka menanyakan kabar kawan-kawan, baik laki-laki atau perempuan, tua atau muda. Saya pun mengirim SMS untuk menanyakan kabar dia. Demi Allah, tidak ada sekelumit pun rasa saya suka atau mencintai karyawati tersebut. Sejak itu, karyawati itu selalu menghubungi saya dan tanpa saya sadari dia memanggil saya dengan panggilan 'sayang'.

Saya pun terhenyak pada awalnya. Kalau orang sudah panggil kita sayang, apalagi maknanya. Tetapi hubungan dengan istri masih baik. Ketika Lebaran tiba, karyawati tersebut menghubungi saya dan menanyakan apakah saya ingin berkunjung ke rumahnya. Saya tak tahu seperti ada sesuatu yang mendesak saya untuk pergi. Saya pun pergi ditemani dengan anak saya.

Ketaatan Istri Membongkar Rahasia

Lama kelamaan istri mencium perbuatan saya. Istri suruh saya tukar nomor telepon. Saya pun menggantinya. Saya ikut segala permintaan istri sebab saya sayang dia. Dan yang anehnya saya tak tahu kekuatan dari mana saya bisa beli nomor dan ponsel lain. Tapi tak lama. Betul juga kata orang, naluri seorang istri itu jangan dibuat main-main.

Saya tahu istri saya selalu berdoa dan saya selalu mendengar dalam doanya ada tangisan. Hati saya pilu mendengar isak istri saya, tapi ada sesuatu yang berbisik agar membiarkan saja istri saya. Solat hajat dan bacaan yasin terus dilakukan oleh istri dan anak-anak. Dan tak lama setelah itu rahasia pun terbongkar.

Ketika istri tahu, dia mengajak saya menemui karyawati tersebut. Saya ikut. Dalam mobil istri menyuruh saya melepaskan karyawati itu. Tapi demi Allah, saya sangat sayang istri saya. Saya takkan melepaskan dia kecuali maut memisahkan kami. Istri saya memang cerdik. Segala doa dia Allah kabulkan. Kami bisa ketemu dengan karyawati tersebut tapi dia lari ketika saya menghampiri istri saya. Seperti ada sesuatu yang membuat karyawati itu takut. Kami kemudian pulang. Dan sejak itu kepercayaan istri pada saya mulai berkurang. Walau berkali-kali saya bilang saya tidak ada hubungan apa-apa dengan karyawati tersebut.

Mencuci Piring Dengan Tangan Dapat Menurunkan Resiko Berbagai Gangguan Kesehatan

Sebuah penelitian baru menemukan bahwa mencuci piring dengan tangan ternyata memiliki dampak positif terhadap kesehatan anak Anda dibandingkan dengan mencuci piring dengan menggunakan mesin.

Mencuci piring dengan menggunakan tangan dapat menurunkan resiko terjadinya berbagai gangguan kesehatan akibat alergi seperti asma atau eksim pada anak.

Hasil penelitian ini mendukung sebuah teori higienitas yang menyatakan bahwa semakin dini seorang anak terpapar oleh berbagai jenis kuman maka semakin baiklah fungsi sistem kekebalan tubuhnya.

Mencuci Piring Dengan Tangan

Jadi, bila seorang anak memiliki sistem kekebalan tubuh yang berfungsi dengan baik, maka sistem kekebalan tubuh tersebut tidak akan salah “mengenali” suatu zat tidak berbahaya sebagai zat berbahaya, yang biasa terjadi pada reaksi alergi.

Selain itu, para peneliti menduga karena mencuci piring dengan tangan tidaklah seefektif mencuci piring dengan mesin dalam hal menghilangkan kuman.

Lebih banyak kuman yang tertinggal yang membuat paparan terhadap kuman pun menjadi lebih banyak. Hal ini dapat menstimulasi sistem kekebalan tubuh untuk bekerja dengan lebih baik, yang juga menyebabkan lebih sedikit alergi.

Akan tetapi, perlu diingat bahwa hasil penelitian ini hanya menunjukkan adanya hubungan antara cara mencuci piring dengan tangan dengan menurunnya resiko terjadinya berbagai reaksi alergi dan bukannya suatu hubungan sebab akibat.

Pada penelitian ini, para peneliti bertanya pada orang tua dari sekitar 1.000 anak berusia 7 atau 8 tahun di Swedia mengenai riwayat kesehatan anak mereka, termasuk mengenai riwayat asma, eksim, dan alergi musiman.

Para peneliti juga bertanya mengenai bagaimana cara keluarga tersebut membersihkan piringnya dan seberapa sering keluarga tersebut mengkonsumsi makanan fermentasi dan makanan yang diperoleh langsung dari sebuah pertanian.

Selain berbagai faktor lain yang juga mempengaruhi reaksi alergi seorang anak seperti yang telah disebutkan di atas.

Para peneliti juga menyingkirkan berbagai faktor resiko lainnya yang telah dipercaya dapat menurunkan resiko terjadinya berbagai reaksi alergi seperti pemberian ASI dan ada tidaknya hewan peliharaan.

Sekitar 12 persen keluarga yang ditanyai para peneliti ini mencuci piringnya dengan menggunakan tangan.

Para peneliti kemudian menemukan bahwa anak-anak pada keluarga tersebut memiliki resiko alergi yang lebih rendah (sekitar 50 persen) dibandingkan dengan anak-anak dari keluarga lain yang mencuci piring dengan menggunakan mesin pencuci piring.

Para peneliti menemukan bahwa di antara anak-anak dari keluarga yang mencuci piringnya dengan tangan, sekitar 23 persen nya menderita eksim dan 1.7 persen nya menderita asma.

Sementara itu, anak-anak dari keluarga yang mencuci piringnya dengan mesin cuci piring, sekitar 38 persennya menderita eksim dan 7.3 persen nya menderita asma.

Para peneliti juga menemukan bahwa anak-anak juga lebih jarang memiliki alergi bila mereka mengkonsumsi makanan atau sayuran yang telah difermentasi setidaknya 1 kali sebulan atau bila mereka sering mengkonsumsi makanan yang berasal dari pertanian setempat.

Visual Perception Treatment for Autistic Children

Autism effects every child differently, so it is difficult to find the exact treatments your child needs to cope with his or her symptoms. One thing that effects some autistic children (though, not all) is problems with visual perception. By using some standardized methods to help improve visual perception, you can give your child the ability to see the world more clearly, making learning and comprehension easier and possibly curbing some behavior problems as well.

Autistic children mainly have problems with sensory overload and distortion. These are some of the same problems many people not suffering from the disorder develop, and so many treatment options have become available. Individuals with autism often find, however, that the sensory overload of the world due to light, colors, contrast, shapes, and patterns, is too much to handle, causing them to act out or shut down in general. This is sometimes a genetic condition that is simply enhanced by the autism, so if the child's parents have trouble with reading or have been otherwise treated for visual perceptive problems, there is a good chance that the child needs help as well.

Visual Perception Treatment for Autistic Children

The Irene Method is one effective way to treat visual perception disorders. This method uses color to create a more harmonized world. You may have heard of these methods if anyone has ever suggested using a color filter over the page when reading to be able to read better and more quickly. This method is proven to work, and if your autistic child is at the maturity level of reading, you may want to try these color filters to see if there is a difference in speed and comprehension. However, it is more likely that your autistic child will benefit from color filters during the entire day, not just when reading. Special glasses have been made using colored lenses to conquer this problem. Not every child responds the same way to every color, so it is a process of trial and error to find out which color is the one blocking the harmful light. You can also choose to use colored light bulbs in your home to help autistic individuals with their visual perception problems.

This method mainly helps children in 4 areas: depth perception, social interaction, learning, and physical well being. The colors help the child determine how far he or she is from an object, and the world becomes more three-dimensional, helping depth perception. Social interaction also improves because the child feels as though he or she is in a calmer world and can more clearly see and interpret facial expressions. The colors make it possible to learn, especially when reading, and overall, the child will feel better, because it helps reduce headaches and dizziness. By testing this technique and others to help visual perception problems, you can help your child better cope with the world and his or her autism.
