Do you have an I shaped or C shaped posture?

i or c 1
Some days back, I laid eyes on a girl sitting in my office bus. The girl was sitting so straight that was really catching my eyes. You may be wondering what is unusual in that. Now just try to sit or stand in the right posture for at least ten minutes. If you are able to maintain your posture for the ten minutes, then you can skip further reading. Otherwise you will understand why that girl caught my attention with her right position. And after noticing her, I just looked at other people sitting in the bus. I could see none sitting so straight as she was. Majority of people were either sleeping or in a relaxed position, totally sunk into their chairs. I analysed myself – anyway I was not sleeping then 🙂 . But was slightly in a ‘C’ shaped posture. I tried to sit in correct posture and determined to maintain that posture. And after sometime I lost in thoughts and again found myself in ‘C’ shaped posture. Then I understood that it’s not a simple task to maintain a good posture. And that girl was maintaining her position till the end of her journey.

Later on I met her in meeting rooms, in some coffee shops, in the lobby etc. Everywhere she was maintaining her good posture, with her heads up reflecting her confidentiality. I don’t know much about her personality and all. But I ‘m quite sure that ‘I’ position instead of ‘C’ position reveals her INDIVIDUALITY.

Good posture is nothing more than keeping our body in proper alignment. In fact posture is far more than looking confident and graceful. Sitting or standing or walking in the right position ensures that our body functions adequately.

Now it’s our turn.. Just think whether we want to have an ‘I’ posture or ‘C’ posture

Please Note: I simply used the alphabets ‘I’ and ‘C’ just to indicate right and curved positions respectively. There is nothing beyond that. In fact spine is said to have an ‘S’ shape and definitely not ‘I’ shape. Hence before practicing, need adequate knowledge on the proper posture as a good posture does not mean keeping our spine fully straight. We will become exhausted when we simply try to maintain our body straight and it will damage our spine. Instead need to understand that ‘S’ shape and practice accordingly.

Our body is the first wonder in the world

We have time to learn the 7 wonders in the world. But hardly have we appreciated the real wonders in a living body. I have senses to perceive the world, legs to walk, hands to hold you and so many miracles. Above all I have a mind too, which science can answer the mind processing in the perfect way?

How wonderful our body is! While living in a technologically miraculous world, rarely we recognise the real miracle, the birth. Hats off to the great creator.

Half of February is done. I hope the high tide of love that knocked at our doors hasn’t turned low after the conclusion of Valentine’s day.

I was just checking through my news feed on Facebook and I came across a video which showed the development of a child fromFecundationtill birth. Amazing video.

I don’t know how many of us actually know how sophisticated our bodies are. We spend time studying the software and hardware around us, but we don’t realise that the best technology actually exists in our very own body.

For instance, eating food. Such an easy process, just chew and swallow. However, it’s not that simple. There is so many mechanisms and processes involved in the background. One step goes wrong and that’s when we even notice. We call it disease.

During our development in our mother’s womb, there are so many things that need…

Love your body

Beauty standards… People spend a lot of time, effort and patience to keep up with the standards, the so called “standards” imposed by the different means including media. And more often end up with desperate results.

Do we girls, need to be slim, fair and tall to meet the definition of “beauty”? (And similarly with a different set of definition for boys too)

Why are we going behind these unrealistic expectations as asked by Rashmi, Do You Wish For A Perfect Body?

I am not totally against makeovers. But it becomes dangerously obsessive when we can’t even believe in our own body. Just love our body as it is.

Walking barefooted

Walking in nature is one of the natural prescriptions for better health.

Now what about walking barefooted..?

Why can’t we take a step back and synchronize with the mother earth by taking the shoes off at least for five minutes daily?

With the advancements in technology, we are missing the pampering of mother earth from where we all evolved. So why can’t we take a cautious move to feel her love..?

Walk barefooted on grass, sand or soil and feel the earth’s natural electric charge.

Don’t feel it to be a anti-culture trend.  There is a scientific reason behind this. Walking barefoot means we have a connection with the earth and its magnetic field. And it seems better when our body comes in direct contact with the natural charges of earth.

You are guaranteed to stand out in a crowd while walking barefooted. But don’t be ashamed while running against technology. Definitely it will improve the physical fitness. Grounding enhances your awareness on the body and posture. And moreover there is a balancing of electrons happening while grounded, and it helps to increase our senses. You are much conscious and present at the moment as you have to watch where you are walking.

And finally don’t miss to wash your feet thoroughly after walking barefooted..;)

Healthy mind and Body

I did an exercise last day. A simple exercise to know my daily time stamps.

Interestingly I observed that on working days I spend
• 25 % – for office
• 10 % – for myself
• 35 % – for family and remaining time for sleeping.

Then on holidays, I spend
• 15 % – for myself
• 50 % – for family and remaining time for sleeping.

It was interesting to observe that I spend a lot of time for sleeping and very little time for myself. Some change is required, especially in these two.

Every individual must have some time reserved for oneself.

Just check whether you are spending at least 10 minutes in a day to thank God for the beautiful life.

How bad it is if we cannot reserve at least 10 mnts with God?

How bad it is if we are not spending atleast half an hour for our health?

Yoga /meditation make our soul strong enough to keep the presence of mind in any adverse situations. A restless mind will actually make the situations much worse. Similarly if we don’t have a healthy body, our actions also will be limited.

Health of mind and body is the most important things in life with which we can achieve anything life.
