Scientifically De-Stress Yourself

Everybody gets stressed out at one time or another. Our modern day busy lifestyle makes sure of that. Some people take stress as a normal thing that we all just have to deal with. But the truth is, we should not just learn to cope or live with stress. We should learn to eliminate it as much as we can because staying in that state can lead to many other complications.

There are many good de-stress methods out there that you can try. Here are 20 scientifically-backed up ways to do just that.

1. Do Breathing Exercises

When we are upset, under pressure, worried or angry our breathing patterns change. We experience shortness of breath and tightening of the muscles. This can greatly reduce the amount of oxygen that is delivered to the brain and can affect your body functions. Breathing deeply or doing breathing exercises when you feel stressed can help restore proper amounts of oxygen to the brain and will help calm you down.

2. Do Muscle Relaxation Techniques

As I mentioned earlier, stress can cause your muscles to be tense and because of this, you may experience different kinds of stress related pain and discomfort. Do some muscle relaxation techniques on the areas where you feel tense. A gentle rubbing motion can do wonders on a tensed area. You may also use a foam roller to relieve tensed muscles.

3. Take A Walk

Sitting down or being immobile for many hours is unhealthy and can cause severe strain physically and mentally. Start your blood pumping again by taking short brisk walks. A ten minute stroll can do wonders to your mood.

4. Go to Your Happy Place

When things in the real world get too stressful, take a short while to close your eyes and visualize something nice. Go to your happy place in your mind and think of things that make you smile. Your imagination can help improve your mood more than you think.

5. Turn Off Your Phone

In times when you feel the world is closing in on you, simply detach yourself from it by turning off your phone.

6. Step Away from the Computer

If it is you work that is causing you stress, then take time away from your screen and look elsewhere. Allow your thoughts to wander off elsewhere for a moment until you feel more relaxed.

7. Eliminate Hunger

Many people eat their stress away. This stress eating is actually effective because eating can make you feel good. But be sure to be mindful of what you eat. Too much junk food can cause more stress than it can remove.

8. Go Green

The color green is scientifically proven to be effective in relaxing the eyes. Stress manifests easily on the eyes, so when they feel strained, stare at a tree outside your window or better yet, get a beautiful plant for your office or home that you can stare at.

9. Get intimate

Touch has a power to heal. When you feel tired and drained, go hug or kiss someone you care about. Scientific tests have proven that a twenty second hug allows the brain to release happy hormones that help us relax.

10. Naam Yoga Hand Trick

Learn the Naam Yoga Hand trick. It is said to help you relax through spiritual connections. But as science explains it, the method actually works with exercising brain functions with hand activity.

11. Eat Candy

Sugar has been known to give you some energy boost and thus can also bring you a slight improvement in your mood. Eat one candy when you feel stressed, just to raise your blood sugar level a bit to help cheer you up.

12. Music Therapy

Music is scientifically proven to affect a person’s mood and over-all physical performance. Improve your mood by listening to some soothing music or your favorite tunes that make you want to dance.

13. Surf the Web

One way to ease stress is to surf the web. With the right choices, the internet can be your ticket to an effective de-stress experience. Visit websites that feature things that you enjoy. Interact with friends on social media. Just make sure you do not over-do it.

14. Laugh

The saying laughter is the best medicine is not just a quote. It is actually true. Laughter is known to lower blood pressure and normalize body functions.

15. Eat high potassium Food

When you are stressed out, your body is telling you that it needs something to improve its state. To manage stress caused by adrenal fatigue, you should eat high-potassium food like asparagus, banana, potato and dried fruits. Potassium is known to relieve muscle tension and thus helps relieve stress.

16. Chew Something

When we are stressed out, we tend to grind or clench our teeth. To prevent this habit, try chewing something that will help relax your jaw. Gum or gummy bears can do the trick.

17. Visit a Good Friend

We all need the support of family or friends especially when we feel down and tired. When you feel depressed and alone, go visit a good friend. It should be someone who makes you feel good about yourself and is willing to listen to your woes.

18. Sing

In times when we cannot verbalize what we want to say, singing it out is said to be a good outlet that will allow you to express yourself in a more positive way.

19. Do Some Arts & Crafts

When your mind is too tired to think, let your fingers get busy. Pick a project you can work on. Make it something you truly enjoy. Psychologists say that having a hobby is a good way to de-stress.

20. Meditate

Meditation is a method used by the religious and psychologists alike. Meditation helps you stay in control of your thoughts and emotions. Taking time to do so will help relieve stress and anxiety.

Unity in Diversity in Ancient India

A remarkable feature of ancient Indian culture has been the comming­ling of cultural elements from the north and south, and from the east and west. The Aryan elements are equated with the Vedic and Puranic culture of the north and the pre-Aryan with the Dravidian and Tamil culture of the south. However, many Munda, Dravidian and oilier non-Sanskritic terms occur in the Vedic texts ascribed to 1500-500 BC.

They indicate ideas, institutions, products, and settlements associated with peninsular and non- Vedic India. Similarly, many Pali and Sanskrit terms, signifying ideas and institutions, developed in the Gangetic plains, appear in the earliest Tamil texts called the Sangam literature which is roughly used for the period 300 BC-AD 600. The eastern region inhabited by the pre-Aryan tribals made its own contribution.

The people of this area spoke the Munda or Kolarian languages. Several terms that signify the use of cotton, navigation, digging stick, etc., in the Indo-Aryan languages have been traced to the Munda languages by linguists. Although there are many Munda pockets in Chhotanagpur plateau, the remnants of Munda culture in the Indo-Aryan culture are fairly strong. Many Dravidian terms too are to be found in the Indo-Aryan languages. It is held that changes in the phonetics and vocabulary of the Vedic language can be explained as much on the basis of the Dravidian influence as that of the Munda.

India has since ancient times been a land of several religions. Ancient India saw the birth of Brahmanism or Hinduism, jainism, and Buddhism, but all these cultures and religions intermingled and interacted. Thus, though Indians speak different languages, practise different religions, and observe different social customs, they follow certain common styles of life. Our country shows a deep underlying unity despite great diversity.

 

The ancients strove for unity. The Indian subcontinent was geographi­cally well defined and its geographical unity was supplemented by cultural integration. Though there existed many states, languages, cultures, and communities, gradually people developed territorial identity. The states or territorial units, called janapadas, were named after different tribes.

However, the country as a whole came to be named Aryavarta after the dominant cultural community called the Aryans. Aryavarta denoted northern and central India and extended from the eastern to the western sea coasts. The other name by which India was better known was Bharatavarsha or the land of the Bharatas.

Bharata, in the sense of tribe or family, figures in the Rig Veda and Mahabharata, but the name Bharatavarsha occurs in the Mahabharata and post-Gupta Sanskrit texts. This name was applied to one of the nine divisions of the earth, and in the post-Gupta period it denoted India. The term Bharati or an inhabitant of India occurs in post-Gupta texts.

Iranian inscriptions are important for the origin of the term Hindu. The term Hindu occurs in the inscriptions of fifth-sixth centuries BC. It is derived from the Sanskrit term Sindhu. Linguistically s becomes h in Iranian, The Iranian inscriptions first mention Hindu as a district on the Indus. Therefore, in the earliest stage, the term Hindu means a territorial unit. It neither indicates a religion nor a community.

 

The Relevance of the Past to the Present:

The study of India’s past assumes special significance in the context of the problems we currently face. Some people clamour for the restoration of ancient culture and civilization, and a substantial number are sentimentally swayed by what they consider to be the past glories of India. This is different from a concern for the preservation of ancient heritage in art and architecture.

What they really want to bring back is the old pattern of society and culture. This demands a clear and correct understanding of the past. There is no doubt that Indians of old made remarkable progress in a variety of fields, but these advances alone cannot enable us to compete with the achievements of modern science and technology. We cannot ignore the fact that ancient Indian society was marked by gross social injustice.

The lower orders, particularly the shudras and untouchables, were encumbered with disabilities which are shocking to the modern mind. Similarly, law and custom discriminate against women in favour of men. The restoration of the old way of life will naturally revive and strengthen all these inequities.

The success of the ancients in surmounting the difficulties presented by nature and human factors can build our hope and confidence in the future but any attempt to bring back the past will mean a perpetuation of the social inequity that afflicted India. All this makes it essential for us to understand what the past means.

We have many survivals of ancient, medieval, and later times persisting in the present. The old norms, values, social customs, and ritualistic practices are so deeply ingrained in the minds of the people that they cannot easily themselves get rid of them. Unfortunately, these survivals inhibit the development of the individual and the country, and were deliberately fostered in colonial times.

India cannot develop rapidly unless such vestiges of the past are eradicated from its society. The caste system and sectarianism hinder the democratic integration and development of India. Caste barriers and prejudices do not allow even educated individuals to appreciate the dignity of manual labour and hamper our unification for a common cause. Though women have been enfranchised, their age-old social subordination prevents them from playing their due role in society, and this is true too of the lower orders of society.

Studying the ancient past helps us to deeply examine the roots of these prejudices and discover the causes that sustain the caste system, subordinate women, and promote narrow religious sectarianism. The study of ancient Indian history is, therefore, relevant not only to those who want to understand the true nature of the past but also to those who seek to understand the nature of the obstacles that hamper India’s progress as a nation.

Inner Soul Jai Hind

Desh ke liye na kaam aya jab tu toh kis kam ka hai tu,

Jab apno ke kam na aya tu toh teri zindagi kis matlab ki hai,

Apno ka apnapan aur prayo ka sapna dhan,

Tune banaye apne sapne yeh bhi na socha ki yeh honge kabhi kisi aur ke bhi,

Desh ke har chape chape mein teri ruh hai samai ,

Har jagah mein teri azadi ki kahani hai samai,

Ghar per sunapan apno se rukhapan,

Kya yahin tha jiska tujhe moh tha.

Apna desh keh raha tha jisko,

Uski kabhi yad na ayi,

Jis waqt bhi apnapan sath laya ,

Tabhi tune peth dikhai,

Kab kholega tera khoon,

Kab milegi teri atma ko azadi,

Teri kimat har wo sakhsh janta hai,

Jisne azadi ke liye apne khoon se hai kheli holi,

Mujhe chahiye dil se azadi ,

us dar se azadi jis dar se mein ghabrata hu ,

Har din yahin dar satata hai ki na jane aaj kya hoga,

Mujhe chahiye azadi aise ki har aurat ghum sake aaram se, kam kar sake din raat.

Aam admi jaisa dikhta hu mein lekin meri umide bahut hai,

Kam karta hu har din aisa ki desh ko garv ho,

Garv dusre ko ho na ho lekin mujhe meri antaratma pe garv hai.

Jis din dil mein aa gaya mere karna hai kuch bada us din aee maa sunle tu , tujhe hoga garv itna ki teri santan bani hai desh ki shaan .

Vande matram , Jai hind , Bharat Mata ki Jai

Be with me flow with me

What you want to do ?

Are you alone ?

Do u really want a company ?

These are just simple set of words and questions which will swirl your mind and can change your life and the way you live your life.

Every person is so limited to there boundaries now a days they are not bothered about the other persons also living in their neighbourhood.

What will happen if you are locked in a room with all facilities, with mobile phone etc and mind it with no other person in room . You may be feel good for this isolation for two days may be 5 days but i think after 7 days you will feel to see other person who may be your friend, your husband , or may be any other person but you will definitely need a person for the activity because human being is social animal and we can not be a stone which is just belongs to a building or just highway.

Friend is just a word but it is a very big meaning word and feeling in real life. We have one life to live just be fire in your dreams and in reality with your feelings.

We can hide our feelings from other persons but we can not hide our feelings from our heart.

Heart always follows your feelings and always follows you because heart is innocent and dont know how to play politics. Its mind who is clever and differentiate love, feelings and ofcourse it play games with relations and friendship in different conditions.

Mainly in a nutshell we need a friend or companion so that we can live our life in just now and here not in a future clouds which may burst or disappear with time.

So Stay now, because in another lifetime you couldn’t!
