Regular yoga practice helps to reduce stress responses in your body, according to a study in the 2010 issue of “Psychosomatic Medicine.” Reducing the inflammatory response to stressors on your body will help reduce your chance of stress-related conditions such as high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. Meditation is also an effective stress reducer that is used to help reduce anxiety, panic disorders and agoraphobia, an anxiety disorder.
Your Vitality or Your Possessions?
Your health or your reputation, Which do you invest in?
Your vitality or your possessions, Which is dearer?
Gain or loss, which is more detrimental? That which you fear to lose
will cost you dearly in the end.
Saving up great stores prepares you for heavy loss. Be content and you will never be disappointed.
If you know when to stop,
You won’t find yourself in trouble. Then, you can experience peace.
