5 Things to remember when everything goes wrong

We expect something in life but it turns out to be something else unexpected and problematic.However the troubles we face will lead us to better path in life by teaching us valuable lessons of life.There is always always always something to be thankful for. One must wake up every day feeling thankful for life because somebody somewhere else is fighting for theirs.

“Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together.” – Marilyn Monroe

Few things to remember when everything goes wrong:

1) Everything happens for a reason;Learn to appreciate the good in bad things :

When I lost my job I realized the importance of having one. When I believed a liar I learnt not to trust anyone other than myself. When I went bankrupt I learnt the value of savings.When I had to live away from family I realized the love of my family.Everything happens for a good reason. Learn to see the good in every bad thing that happens and keep going.

2) Pain is Temporary: if things are bad, don’t worry. It wont last forever. It’s just a phase of life but not your whole life. This phase will pass by soon and good things will happen sooner. Afterall life is full of ups and down. Be happy when good things happen but remember to smile even when life brings you down because you know it will not last permanently.

3) Struggle makes you stronger: When you were a baby you struggled to crawl , walk and talk but at the end this struggle only made walking and talking easy for you. Similarly to achieve anything in life you have to go through various struggles. These struggles will help you  to be successful

4) Worrying or complaining changes nothing: Time spent worrying is the time wasted. Worrying will only suppress you. Have faith in you and the positivity that surrounds you and stop worrying.It’s always better to attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed.  It’s not over if you’ve lost; it’s over when you do nothing but complain about it.  If you believe in something, keep trying.

5) Other people’s problem is not your problem: 

Smile when others try to bring you down.  It’s an easy way to maintain your enthusiasm and focus.  When other people treat you poorly, keep being you.  Don’t ever let someone else’s bitterness change the person you are.  You can’t take things too personally, even if it seems personal. Rarely do people do things because of you.  They do things because of them.

Above all, don’t ever change just to impress someone who says you’re not good enough.  Change because it makes you a better person and leads you to a brighter future.  People are going to talk regardless of what you do or how well you do it.  So worry about yourself before you worry about what others think.  If you believe strongly in something, don’t be afraid to fight for it.  Great strength comes from overcoming what others think is impossible.

Do whatever makes you happy and be with whoever makes you happy. Life is all about living happy and peaceful.

Surya namaskar for radical transformation of your body and mind

Surya Namaskar which is also known as Sun Salutation is a combination of various yoga postures that consists of 12 steps. Practicing Surya Namaskar or Sun Salutation regularly helps to keep your internal system strong and improves immunity.

Sun Salutation is a complete body workout. Yoga experts say that doing 12 sets of Surya Namaskar translates into doing 288 powerful yoga poses in a span of 10 to 15 minutes. Regular practise of surya namaskar bring lot of health benefit to every part of your body from top to toe as these poses regulate the supply of blood flow to every organ in your body and makes it healthy.

Surya namaskar brings radical transformation to your body and mind. An Amazing fact is that 30 minutes of surya namaskar burns as much calories as 30 mimutes of running does . Isn’t a good idea to burn so much calories at your home just by stretching on your mat.

Phenomenal benefits of surya namaskar are :

Doing sun salutation for 12 times takes somewhere between 10 to 15 mins a day which is great for those who have busy schedules and can’t spare much time for daily exercise.

4) Ensures Regular menstrual cycles and easy child-birth: Surya namaskar is highly beneficial for women as it regulates irregular menstrual cycle and if practised daily before pregnancy (do not perform surya namaskar during pregnancy) , it helps greatly for easy child-birth as it strengthens the abdomen muscles that helps for natural birth.

5) Detoxify your Body: As it involves inhalation and exhalation , it improves the oxygen supply for blood streams removing carbon dioxide and other toxic gases from your body which in turn detoxify your body

6) Better functioning Digestive System: Sun salutation helps in smooth functioning of digestive system. As these yoga asanas increases blood flow to the digestive tracts resulting in better functioning of intestines.

8) Gives you overall mental health: it improves memory and nervous system and helps you get rid of anxiety. It normalizes the activity of endocrine glands especially thyroid gland.

I highly recommend to learn surya namaskar from yoga practitioner as  there are chances of doing it wrong and hurting yourself. Practise sun salutation under supervision of your yoga master till you get a hold on it.

Initially you may find it tough to do but believe me it becomes very easy and becomes a part of your routine if you do these 12 postures for 12 times continuously for 7 days.
