Huge Benefits Of Maintaining Yin-Yang Balance

Huge Benefits Of Maintaining Yin-Yang Balance

These days, many people are looking for ways to optimize their health and lead more fulfilling lives. If this is your objective, it’s important to know that learning how to maintain the yin-yang balance can help you realize your objective. Although defined broadly, the yin-yang principle incorporates the idea that every being is comprised of opposing yet complementary energies.

The feminine form of energy is referred to as yin, while the masculine form is called yang. The yin is the intuitive, emotive aspect of our nature. It strives for realization through creative endeavors. On the other hand, the yang is the aspect of our being that places primacy on analyzing, planning, and thinking. These two entities represent two parts of a whole that can never be divided. In conjunction, they represent our circle of life.

Although yin and yang work wonders when they are kept in balance, misalignment of these energies can result in a sense of inner conflict and disease. On the other hand, maintaining the yin-yang balance can result in extraordinary productivity and holistic health. Luckily, there are many ways to attain or maintain this delicate balance. A couple of ways are yoga and meditation, which are discussed below.

1. Yoga

Yoga helps maintain the yin-yang balance. On one hand, yoga requires participants to surrender the mind to the body and connect with the physical aspect of self in an intuitive and emotive way. At the same time, yoga requires participants to think in a logical and structured manner in order to complete the physical movements with poise and precision.

In addition to balancing the yin and yang, yoga can also have a plethora of other health benefits. As noted by MayoClinic, some of these benefits include:

• stress reduction
• improved fitness
• reduced risk for chronic diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, depression, etc.

If you are interested in using yoga to help balance the yin and yang, it is important to note that getting the right clothes is important. To obtain the best yoga pants available, you may want to try shopping in an online store that provides you with a wide selection to choose from. The best pants will provide comfort while also enabling you to move freely enough to perform all of the positions necessary to induce a calm state and enhance fitness.

2. Meditation

In addition to using yoga to maintain the yin-yang balance, you may find that meditation is effective in helping you realize this objective. Many expert practitioners believe that the mind is yang, meaning that this form of energy has a proclivity for rising to the head. On the other hand, the body is perceived as yin, which results in this type of energy descending to the feet. The energies must always remain connected to induce a healthy state of mind, body, and spirit.

Meditation helps with the enterprise of maintaining connectivity between the mind and body by having individuals consciously think about their physical form through activities like regulated breathing. Many people believe that meditation is the fastest and most effective way to balance yin and yang. Free Meditation notes that there is much research suggesting that meditation is an effective medium through which to reduce stress.

Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

Science Says A Glass Of Red Wine Can Replace 1 Hour Exercising

Are you a red wine drinker? What if I tell you sipping in a glass of wine can equate to an hour of exercise? Yup, it’s tried and tested. A new scientific study has just confirmed this wonderful news. So next time you hold a glass of Merlot, you can brag about one hour of hard workout. Rejoice, drinkers!

What the study found out

“I think resveratrol could help patient populations who want to exercise but are physically incapable. Resveratrol could mimic exercise for the more improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that they can do.”

(applauds)

I’m not saying this, but the study’s principal investigator Jason Dyck who got it published in the Journal of Physiology in May.

In a statement to ScienceDaily, Dyck pointed out that resveratrol is your magic “natural compound” which lavishes you with the same benefits as you would earn from working out in the gym.

And where do you find it? Fruits, nuts and of course, red wine!

Did I forget to mention Dyck also researched resveratrol can “enhance exercise training and performance”?

There are limits, of course

But, all is not gold as they say. If you’re a lady who likes to flaunt holding a glass of white wine in the club or simply a Chardonnay-lover,you have a bad (sad) news. The “one hour workout” formula only works with red wine, not non red wines. And don’t be mistaken and think you’ve managed 4 to 6 hours of workout sessions if you happen to gulp down a bottle of red wine.

And what can replace the golden lifetime benefits of exercise?Exercise is just as important as you age. Period! But hey, don’t be discouraged; look at the bigger picture here. A glass of red wine is not a bad deal after all!

The health benefits of red wine

But just how beneficial is the red alcoholic beverage to your body? As we all know red wine is a healthier choice youc an make when boozing.

Let’s hear it from a registered dietitian. Leah Kaufman lists red wine as the “most calorie friendly” alcoholic beverage. Sure, you won’t mind adding up to a mere 100 calories per 5-ounce glass of red wine after you realize it contains antioxidants, lowers risk of heart disease and stroke, reduces risk of diabetes-related diseases, helps avoid formation of blood clots and lowers bad cholesterol level.

Wantmore? Wine could also replace your mouthwash because the flavan-3-ols in red wines can control the “bad bacteria” in your mouth.To add to that list of benefits, moderate wine drinking may be beneficial for your eyes too – a recent study mentions.

Be aware of the risks, too

Having mentioned all the ‘goods’ about red wine, you cannot underplay the fact that it is still an alcohol, which isn’t the best stuff to pour into your body. What is excessive drinking going to do to your body? Know the risks and you should be a good drinker at the end of the day.

However, you don’t want to discard the red vino from your “right eating”regimen just because it stains your teeth blue. M-o-d-e-r-a-t-i-o-n. Did you read that? That’s the operative word when it comes to booze.

By the way, when chocolate is paired with wine, particularly red, they can bring you some exceptional benefits towards your health.But again, if you tend to go overboard and booze down bottles after bottles, you are up for the negative side of alcohol, and we all know what too much of sweetness (sugar) can do to our body (open invitation to diabetes and heart diseases if you aren’t aware).

Folks, the red grape beverage is certainly a good buy to have a good hour’s worth of cardio, provided you keep the ‘M’ word in mind. Cheers!
