All of us know that Life and Death are universal. Nothing is substantial, solid and permanent in the world. Health and disease, hope and despair, happiness and sorrow are two ends of the same continuum.
Every day is a second choice.
No one has forgotten about the COVID-19. The second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic sinisterly, gloomily felled lives, livelihood and normalcy. Terrified by this outbreak, more and more of us have become conscious about our health. Many of us started prayers in the sacred puja rooms for the safety of all. Some of them started Yoga practice using lungs as a pneumatic tool to remove intoxicants, stimulants and distractions and also to enhance their lung breathing capacities. With breath inhalation and exhalation, the release of toxins happens effortlessly.
Researchers also state that controlling breath can change the response of the body’s autonomic nervous system that controls unconscious processes such as heart rate and digestion as well as the body’s stress response. Many mental illnesses such as stress and anxiety as well as depression are aggravated or triggered by stress hormones. When we take slow and steady breaths, the brain gets the message that all is well and activates the parasympathetic response. While, when we take shallow rapid breaths or hold our breaths for a few seconds, the sympathetic response is activated. So, if we breathe correctly, the mind will calm down.
I will breathe. I will think of solutions. I will not let my worry control me. I will not let my stress levels break me. I will simply breathe. And it will be okay. Because I don’t quit.
Remember, deep breathing also gradually increases efficiency and helps the immune system regenerate to fight infections and other ailments.
Meditation helps in decreasing the metabolic rate.Lower the metabolic rate, longer the life span, higher the metabolic rate, shorter the life span.
Panic can cause overestimating of the pandemic threat and underestimating our coping abilities, whereas confidence and tranquillity act as an elixir to overcome. Everything has a beginning and an end. The future is expected to be once again bright with the same bustling activity as it would be.
Train Your Mind to see the good in every situation.
Never, never lose hope, we will breathe freely and win over this situation.
Worrying doesn’t take away tomorrow’s troubles. It takes away today’s peace.
