Start Meditating

By: | Tags: , , , , , , ,

Meditation can be intimidating largely because there is confusion regarding what meditation really is. A more accurate question to start with is actually what meditation isn’t. There really are not strict limits on the practice of meditation and it certainly isn’t limited to sitting cross-legged on the floor, perfectly at peace. However, if that is the form of meditation that works for you, then have at it! See how it can be confusing? Meditation is different for everyone depending on your lifestyle, your preferred way of sitting, lying down, relaxing […]

Exercise is great for us in a variety of ways. We reduce the odds of developing heart disease, reduce the chances of a stroke, help prevent depression, lower blood pressure, and even keep diabetes at bay. It also makes us feel and look better.

According to Tiffany Field, Ph.D., the director of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, when the vagus nerve is […]

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

You’ve probably heard the phrase “keep your head up” or “keep your chin up,” meaning to maintain high spirits in the face of something difficult and to persevere. Well, guess what? It’s backed by science: maintaining erect posture (sitting up or standing straight, chin raised, shoulders back) actually helps your body respond to stress and manage your moods.  Many studies have been performed based on the hypothesis that muscular states relate to emotions, but these studies have mostly focused on facial expressions (smiling does make you happier, by the way!).
