Find out today’s trending health news with Stacey Chillemi that will improve your life and your overall health.

Everyone strives to be happy but the mistake that everyone makes is that they think that happiness is some kind of finishing line in a race. Once you crossed that line, you will live happily ever after. That is not true. Happiness is a choice! You can choose to make your life happy. So here are a few ways you could try.

Let go of past memories

Everyone has both sad and happy moments. So forget about your painful memories. What’s in the past stays in the past. Instead, focus on your good memories and move on.

Be optimistic

Always try looking on the bright side of things. Look for the silver lining behind each dark cloud. For example, if you had an unfortunate accident and your car is badly dented, but on the bright side is that nobody got hurt and that dent in your car can be repaired. There is always a bright side to look on so be optimistic!

Be close to your family

Try and maintain a close relationship with your family and friends. Our relationships with them have a greater impact on our happiness than anything else. Human beings are made to be social creatures. So appreciate the existing relationships that you have.

Try finding a job that gives you happiness

If you are feeling stressed out in your current job and not getting the job satisfaction that you want, perhaps it’s time for a career change. Job satisfaction plays an important part in your happiness. So give your job a chance. Try having a positive attitude in your job. If that doesn’t work, it may be time for a change of jobs.

Make friends

You need to make friends with people who share a common interest. Find something that you are deeply passionate about. It could be a hobby or an organization you can volunteer in. There you could meet people who have the same interest and passions as you.

Exercise

Exercising releases endorphins. So, not only you are taking care of your body but you will automatically start to feel good about yourself.

Change your thinking

You have to start living life to the fullest. Don’t delay your life a second longer. Try something new every day or pick up a new skill!

Don’t let the small stuff bug you

Remember all the small petty stuff that used to bother you? Forget all about it and focus on the bigger picture. Life is too short to worry about trivial stuff.

Live your life for yourself

Stop trying to live your life up to other people’s expectations. You are your own person. So start living it for yourself!

Lastly, remember to love with all your heart

You have all this love to give so give your love to something and start feeling happy today!

 

Any of us may make adjustments to become a more powerful woman and, as a result, feel pleased and content. You, too!

We often assume that if others get the things we want, it is because they were lucky, had more chances, or were prettier or smarter.

We delay and postpone because we create excuses like “I’m too old to accomplish those things,” “it’s not the time,” “I’m too busy,” “I don’t have enough money,” or any other rationale that comes to mind.

Whatever we believe or say is only a set of ideas that confine us and keep us from achieving our actual potential, stopping us from living a richer life.

True, some circumstances may make the journey easier or more difficult, but it is not impossible.

It will be mostly determined by your attitude toward life and your desire or effort to train your “mindset” (a more positive style of thinking) to acquire the required habits and behaviors to help you accomplish whatever you set out to do.

Habits and actions that will make you an empowered woman:

Work on your self-knowledge and invest in your personal growth

Being an empowered woman requires a high level of self-awareness. Knowing our talents and limitations offers us an edge in many life situations.

On the other hand, knowing oneself well allows us to reinforce or accentuate the areas in which we stand out.

We may also enhance or delegate all of the other areas where we aren’t as good or strong.

This way, you’ll always know how to develop and push yourself to new heights.

empower

Develop your self-esteem and strengthen your self-confidence

When you have a good understanding of yourself, you can concentrate on all of the abilities, skills, traits, and values that make you unique and remarkable.

Focusing on all of this can help you love and cherish yourself more and gain the confidence you need to accomplish your goals.

Define your purpose or mission in life

Having a clear purpose, a well-defined target, and a clear understanding of why and how you want to attain your goals will be the driving force behind achieving them. It will provide you with the drive and inspiration you need to keep the north.

You may accomplish a lot by doing a lot, working a lot, and achieving a lot, but if you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll never know whether you’ve arrived.

What is the significance of having a mission or a purpose? Simply because it is what gives our existence a spiritual significance.

Assume the commitment to achieve your purpose and take action

We have a finite amount of time on this planet. It’s pointless to declare your goal if you don’t take steps to accomplish it.

After you’ve decided what you want to accomplish, you’ll need to figure out how to get there.

Break down your purpose into smaller objectives and work on them one at a time!

Concentrate on the vital things, on what you really want, and avoid distractions!

Be persistent, disciplined, and resilient

Three irrefutable qualities can help you achieve your goals and become a powerful woman.

This implies that the ability to sustain the resolve and patience required not to give up when challenges or crises arise is critical.

It is unavoidable that you will face several challenges along the road.

Don’t let them stop you when you come up against them; they’re meant to teach you something. Make the necessary modifications and try again. Never dismiss the possibility of obtaining assistance!

 

 

yoga

In choosing the perfect yoga clothes, of course, they should be comfortable and made to give you a relaxing effect.

The best yoga clothes are those that allow you to freely move and prevent instances of distraction and disturbance when you are having your practice. They need to feel good on your skin so that you will be free from irritations.

Yoga clothes are an important accessory because it sets you in the mood. If you don’t have the perfect set of yoga clothes, your day of practicing will not be good.

During heavy practice, it is expected that you will sweat too much. Some people don’t really sweat too hard but if you do, you should wear absorbent clothes so that the sweat in your body will be minimized and give you a dry feeling.

When you are all covered by sweat, you will have that sticky feel which keeps you uncomfortable and sometimes feel scratchy.

Although yoga clothes don’t need to look that good, it is still important that you wear attractive ones so that you will have a good look and feel. Confidence is also an affecting factor in practicing. If you wear good yoga clothes, then you will not feel discriminated against. So choose the best clothes that will match your personality.

In practicing yoga, there is no requirement in choosing your clothes. If you want to show off some skin, it’s up to you. If you have a body in good shape, you can wear fitting shirts and pants.

If you don’t have that figure, but think that you have the guts, no one will scold you. After all, you’re the one who carries your body as long as you can handle it.
Here are the common things you need when looking for yoga clothing.

Yoga Tops – the first thing you should consider in choosing a yoga top is that it should not fall on your face. Tops are designed to let you move freely and not be distracted when doing the exercise. If you are going to wear tee-shirts, they should not be that long and should not cover the lower part of your body.

This is important in checking the alignment of your lower body because you can see whether your knees and ankles are aligned properly. Most women wear sports bras so that in doing some movements, they are sure that it holds them securely and prevents chances of falling out when stretching.

Yoga Pants – Choosing your yoga pants is quite delicate. The texture and surface of some pants may not give you a comfortable feel. The length of the pants is one of the things to consider in choosing them. Some pants are long that it reaches your ankles. If this is not comfortable for you, you should wear pants that are below your knees. This allows you to move freely.

Yoga Shorts – this is a good choice if you are practicing hot yoga or known as Bikram Yoga. This type of yoga is done in a room at a high temperature. Wearing shorts will let go of the heat inside your body.

Choosing your yoga clothes doesn’t mean that it has to be expensive. What is important is that you feel good and comfortable deep inside.

 

depression

You can live life around supportive friends and family, individuals who are there for you no matter how busy their lives may be.  You feel their love and you receive their ongoing support, however, living life with an illness can feel  like a “life of  loneliness.”

Despite all the support, all the love you may receive’ life with limitations, pain, and suffering can be very draining and depressing.  Many people with illnesses walk around hiding the pain they feel inside both emotionally and physically.

Many hide their pain with the false grinning faces that they wear on a daily basis.  Including myself.  And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter.  They are so rustic, so ugly, so meaningless, and feeble from being kept inside your small dark soul.  These are the ones you created inside yourself.  In a space in your heart where the painful emotions have lingered for so long.

Yes, there is joy, love, laughter fulfillment, and companionship in your life– however, the dreary emotions that have built up inside your soul for so long have caused you to experience the pain and loneliness caused by your illness.  It’s become horrible and overpowering.

I know because I battle with the invisible illness known as epilepsy.  On the outside, I look so normal.  No one would ever expect that I battle a chronic illness that has taken over my body and over time has begun to emotionally destroy me on the inside.

Battling depression with an illness

Depression is a condition that can slowly make its way into your life, especially when a chronic illness begins to take over causing you to have to stop doing what you love and live life with limitations.  Limitations can help you physically, but emotionally the depression secretly makes its way into your soul because you are unable to become the person you once dreamed of becoming.

Your pathway of life has changed and your dreams are niched. So what now?

So how do you overcome the depressed feelings inside?  What do you do?  Some days you want to move on and change your life for the better and other days you feel like just giving up because of the emotional pain you’re feeling on the inside. Your illness is draining you.

Overcoming depression with an illness

Honestly, I’ll be the first to admit life has not been a bowl of cherries.  But it was back in the 1990s when they couldn’t find a drug to control my seizures.  They sent me to a trial group to try medications that were still in the research and were getting ready to be approved by the FDA.  At this point in my life, I was tired.  Tired of taking seizures. I was frustrated with the cards I was dealt with and angry that I had no control.  That my illness controlled me.

That day I walked into the waiting room with the other patients like myself, who were hoping to find that miracle drug that would control their seizures and make them live a life that was normal in their eyes.

There were patients that were strapped down because their seizures were so traumatic that they needed to be held down so they wouldn’t hurt themselves.  Patients that had 90 to over 100 seizures daily. People who had brain damage and others who could barely talk.

It was then that I realized that the cards that I was dealt with weren’t so bad after all.  They were others much worse than me.  Yes, I developed epilepsy at the age of five through a virus known as encephalitis that had traveled throughout my brain and life has definitely been a rollercoaster, to say the least, however, they are others who have it a lot worse than me.

At that moment the light bulb turned on and after working years on myself I concluded:

Denial and acceptance

Our illness is not going to go away.  It is a part of us.  You need to accept that it is a part of you.  Once you come to terms with your illness you will start to see the anger you have built inside you for so long start to disappear.

Love yourself

For so long I hated who I was, but as you know hate destroys.  Once I learned to love myself my life changed for the better.  I focused on my positive qualities.  It was then that I stopped thinking about what I couldn’t do and started paying attention to the things in life that I could do.  I put all my energy into my positive qualities and created a life that would make me happy based on the things I could do.

A quote that always stuck with me was…

“To find extraordinary happiness and success, pursue your passion, work with your intuition, learn as a child, and adapt as water.” – Pushpendra Mehta, Observe to Unmask

Self-Esteem

I slowly began to feel good about myself.  I realized over time that everyone has something in life.  No one is perfect.  We all have obstacles to overcome.  You are not alone.  Everyone has something in life.  There is no need to feel like you’re on the bottom of the totem pole.  Everyone has something special about themselves.  Take some time to figure out what makes you special then use those special qualities about yourself to help others.  There is no better feeling in the world than helping someone else in life.  It will make you feel better as a person and it will improve your self-esteem.

Overcome the loneliness

I have so many people in my life who would listen to me when I need to share my pain, however, it is very difficult to open up and let others know the pain that we carry inside our hearts.  Not letting others know how you feel inside can cause you to feel lonely and depressed.  The best way to overcome this is to open up to others experiencing the same situation that can relate to you and what you are going through dealing with your invisible illness.  You’re not alone.

Tip #1: Go into a forum or chat group anonymously and share what you’re going through.  You’ll see that there are millions of people going through the same thoughts and emotions.  Sharing your emotions will make you feel better.  However, the trick to overcoming your loneliness and depression is to move forward and overcome these negative emotions.

You can’t control your illness, but you can control how you deal with your illness.

Tip#2: Create a journal with short and long-term goals.  Think positive.

Waking up each day not knowing what to expect can be frustrating and depressing. Even living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t guarantee a better life. However, in order to survive and overcome the depression, you feel inside, you must learn to fight back.

The Bottom Line

“That we cannot change the past.  We can only focus on the present and create positive changes to improve our future.”  You never know what the next day will bring.  Make the best of your life by appreciating what you have, not what you don’t have in life.

Chakras In The Human Body

Chakra is actually the Sanskrit word that would mean wheel. The human body includes seven important chakras and also many minor chakras. These 7 chakras start from the bottom of the backbone and finish on the top of the head. Basically, those chakras possess the wheel of continuous revolving and rotating energy.

Chakra

The root (1st chakra) has the slowest revolving speed while the crown (7th chakra) rotates the fastest. As soon as these chakras are unhealthy, unbalanced, or clogged up, one’s lifestyle tends to be out of sync. Weariness, stress, and other health issues may set in. In such cases, it’s important to unclog the affected chakras and restore their balance.

Chakra Stimulation

Stimulation for each chakra comes from its individual and complimentary color as well as a range of gemstones. Basically, these chakra colors consist of the 7 colors of the rainbow:

  • red
  • orange
  • yellow
  • green
  • blue
  • indigo
  • violet.
