  1. Yoga The Method of Kundalini Jagran The Method of Kundalini Jagran The Kundalini Jagran (release of the dormant energy) is achieved via physical and mental exercise. Physical fitness is achieved by the Yoga Asanas. They are a series of postures for exercising and stretching the body. Mental balance is achieved by Pranayama (Breathing Exercise) and Dhyana (Meditation). The Jagran of Kundalini is just the process towards the goal of self-enlightenment. The Bhagwad Gita the ancient book of knowledge and spirituality defines yoga as a means to achieve union with self. When the state of union with self is achieved the mind gets freedom from all desires and becomes absorbed in self. This helps to understand the true nature of life and the environment around. A way of life Yoga is generally related to the Hindu religion and the yogis but it is not the fact. In fact, it is a way of life with the aim of healthy mind and body. As per Yogic texts man is a combination of physical self, mental self and spiritual self and yoga-practice is a way to develop all the three aspects. Other exercises are only for the body and do not have any connection to the spiritual aspect of life. Yogic practices, on the other hand, help to regulate physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Here are some of the benefits of this ancient technique: • Promotes equilibrium and harmony of mind, body and spirit. • Helps the body in healing itself. There have been many instances of an ill person getting well without consuming any external medicine, just following the yoga-Asanas and other practices. • Detoxifies body by removing toxins and the mind by removing negative thoughts. • Empowers the individual, and the energy can be felt from within. • Reduction of stress in life is one of the many benefits of yoga-practice. • Self-awareness is achieved which can help realize true potential. 1. You Need to Be fit to Practice Yogic Poses - People generally believe that they cannot perform yoga-asana, as they are very complex. This myth has arisen from seeing advance yogis in extreme yogic positions. But unfit people can practice it and the asana can be modulated as per the need. 2. Weekly Exercise - In fact, the ancient texts prescribe yoga be done daily, even if it is just 20 minutes. 3. Yoga is a Religion - Yoga is not a religion, but a philosophy which helps us live a better and responsible life.
  2. The health and motivation for shift work have been known to have its own peculiar demands. This has set it apart from jobs that have traditional hours of work. Shift work has its own health merits. The shift work has been created to aid workflow processes between employer, employee and tasks at hand. Over the years, it has been noticed that workers identified in shift work often receive better health plans, health products, and remuneration and by this, give shift workers time to do other tasks or personal chores while being watchful of individual mental health. However, the scientific and medical communities report continually that shift workers concerned stand an increased risk of certain health disorders and mental health challenges that have severe negative impact on the general well-being of work shift staff which may not be achieved until the right health products are used. There is a concern for the 9 to 5ers, as one sees a case of the health of those who barely get by with the hard life of routine which most times is viewed to compensate only the boss at the top. Furthermore, we sought to consider those who work less conventional hours that include working shifts at night. Any way it is looked at, an adequate welfare plan should be in place for them while introducing supplements of health products. Researchers have discovered that those more at risk of suffering certain mental health challenges and chronic ailments ordiseases, are shift workers, such as flight attendants, police officers, doctors, bartenders, nurses, and the like. Shift work can be classified as any type of work schedule that involves hours that are uncommon, or unusual when comparing this type of work schedule with the traditional work schedule that occurs within the day between 6 am and 6 pm. For clarity, the term shift work can refer to rotating shifts, working overnight, evening shifts and other flexible shift patterns desired or arranged by the employer that also addresses the challenge of mental health in shift work platforms. In other to assist shift workers, first aid boxes can be kept handy and filled with health products for shift workers. It's been recorded by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), that over 16.8% salary workers and full-time wage workers are employed to work alternative shifts. Another interesting discovery made is that evening shifts are the most common alternative shifts, which have their working hours starting at between 2 pm and midnight. Work schedules may also constantly change as a result of irregular work shifts that also result in mental health and hormonal imbalances. In this article, we take a look at what the resultant effects of what shift work are, what shift workers can potentially do in other to lower their risks of diverse health problems and what salient reasons could possibly be behind these findings. The mental health and prescribed health products of shift workers should not be left unaddressed as this plays an important role in the health and total well-being of the workers. At first glance, it appears as though shift workers have and work different hours compared to the regular workers' typical 9-to-5 routine. Reports also show that this is not the only underlying factor, as one key factor also is an increased risk of some diseases. Some medical associations such as the Medical News Today have reported on studies that relate the lack of usage of health products and increased risk of certain health problems with shift work. These relationships have seen discoveries ranging from the predictable to the most amazing jaw-dropping situations. A reputable medical journal published a meta-analysis in 2014 which suggested that shift workers face an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. This is a red flag. Taking into consideration, shift workers rotating shifts also face an increased risk of 42%. So we see a need for the inclusion of health products as ready supplements for shift workers. Interestingly, shift workers who rotate night shifts for 15 years and above were found to potentially increase the health risk of lung cancer mortality and poor mental health.
