Nature provides us with products that have a special and beneficial effect on our health. Coconut is one of those products that have unique health properties and a number of nutrients. In the process of heating and pressing the pulp of its walnut we get a wonderful coconut oil, which is one of the greatest known superfoods widely used in both kitchen and cosmetics.
“Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower and draws all good things towards you.” Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
It would be wrong for anyone who would think that happiness in life guarantees us the pleasure of fulfilling it. Meeting temptations brings instant content, but in the long run does not give long-term satisfaction. No wonder the most important things in life are not things. From my observations and many researches I made, the biggest impact on lasting and stable happiness are good relationships with people, engaging in life, good sleep, gratitude, appreciation of small things, exercise, mindfulness and meditation.
Mindfulness can bring us liberation from automatism, the need for immediate response, and it allows us to experience what we experience at a different level of consciousness. From a certain perspective one could conclude that without mindfulness set at the present moment, it is difficult to live and act consciously. There are many exercises to deepen attendance, and among them all the most fundamental is the practice of deep relaxation.
Superfoods are foods packed with nutrients, antioxidants, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, proteins, enzymes that can improve the condition and ability of the body almost overnight. It is not a great deal to eat the worthless food, the true art is to provide the body with a meal that nourishes it, regenerates, improves immunity, provides energy, and is quickly and easily digested. Of course, it is not about giving up our dietary habits and starting to eat radically, using only superfoods. A good diet is a well-balanced diet where superfood takes an important but not exclusive place.
Yoga is commonly associated with stretching exercises, as if it were merely a form of stretching or some other flexibility practice. However, there are few who knows that this is an extremely effective system of working with the mind, and the increased range of movements in the joints is somehow a "side effect" of this practice. By practicing yoga, we learn to use our mind in a conscious way, exerting it with the desired effect on the body and shaping the constructive perception of the world. Of course, the effects of this work are also felt in the physical body, that to my mind experiences the sensation of ease and release. After some time, we also notice the change in the way we perceive reality, ourselves and the surrounding world.
Depression, melancholy, lethargy, apathy, fatigue or disorientated states of mood can affect anyone of us. In order to treat this symptoms medicine offers a variety of psychotropic drugs that are about to cure these diseases. Yoga poses on the other hand are said to be a natural way of returning to the emotional balance - through the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises). The practice of yoga, like any other physical activity, increases the level of serotonin (hormone of happiness) and allows us to find the purpose in life and giving it a meaning by creating a desire to experience life more.
