Avoid eye problems caused by T.V. and Monitors

The eye was not made to be constantly focused on close objects. If your work requires that you stare at  a computer screen all day long or if yor watch a lot of televisoin, stop from time to time to do a few eye exercises.

For example, roll your eyes in large circles in both directions: look over to each side as  far as ossible and then go from up to down; or scan an  imaginary text on the wall from left to right; or look out hte window as far as you can following the horizon then return to a point right in front of you and begin again.

In this way, you will avoid long term eye problems, you will enlarge your inner space, and relax both your eyes and your mind.

Care for your Heart while you sleep!

In which position do you sleep?

If you sleep on your stomach or on your left side, you are putting pressure on your heart with the extra body weight, while th heart has to continue pumping blood as usual.
The additional burden wears the heart out more quickly.

Thing about it - you spent more than one third of your life sleeping!
To reduce the strain on your heart, sleep on your right side, or on your back. This simple technique will add years to your life.:-)

Are you anxious?

Is worrying one of your characteristics?
Well, stop! It is okay to worry, but at the right time. Psychologists at the University of Pennsylvania tell patients who suffer from anxiety to regularly do a daily twenty minute “worry session,” always at the same time and in the same place. Collect your head full of worries during the day (don’t suppress them!) and then pour them out during your daily worry session. Exaggerate your worries to the point of absurdity - knit your brows, make faces, let the sweat flow, shake and cower as much as
you like. In other words, make a caricature of the part of yourself that is always worried, and in so doing exorcise it. Eliminating worry will help prevent numerous psychosomatic illnesses, which result from living in a state of permanent anxiety.

How to fight aging

Did you know that just walking for 30 minutes, 3 or 4 times a week is enough to combat aging?

According to researchers at the University of California, one of the principle causes of deterioration of the human organism’s physical faculties is its diminished ability to metabolize glucose. And they showed that even leisurely exercise, like taking a walk, plays an important role in keeping glucose metabolism functioning smoothly.
Do you spend the whole day sitting at your desk or in front of a computer screen?
Why not get up occasionally and do a few minutes of physical exercise? Don’t worry about what other people think. In some Japanese companies, it is even become a collectivehabit. Every twenty minutes a bell sounds, and everybody gets up to do some stretching exercises, after which they sit down again as if nothing had happened. Japanese managers are convinced that their employees are more productive when they are relaxed.
