10 Reasons To Try Yoga


Yoga is one of the ancient trends in Hindu culture, which is based on a combination of spiritual, physical, and psychological practices and gives you the opportunity to control the mental and physiological functions of your body. The main task of yoga is to help you gain inner harmony and improve your health. Here are ten reasons for you to try this exotic type of gymnastics. Thanks for the information about our fit and beautiful friends from https://primedating.com/

1) Yoga increases the flexibility of the whole body

Some exercises (asanas) in yoga require a stretchy body. That’s why it may be too difficult for most beginners to perform them. With regular training, this discomfort will eventually go away, and your body will become flexible.

2) Yoga increases muscle tone

Sure, a couple of hours in the gym will help you stay fit, but yoga has a huge advantage over conventional exercises, as it doesn’t involve active physical activity.


3) Yoga fills the entire body with energy

When performing certain asanas, the body completely relaxes, gets rid of energy blocks, freeing up space for the sense of lightness. And after the yoga class, you’ll always be full of energy and ready for new beginnings.

4) Yoga may help you cope with back problems

Yoga can become a relief for those who lead a sedentary lifestyle. A lot of people feel pain in the back after a long working day. Regular yoga classes can help you get rid of this problem easily. Besides, some yoga exercises can also be beneficial for people suffering from constant back pains. In this case, a professional instructor can help develop an individual complex of asanas, aimed at fighting pain.


5) Yoga massages internal organs

When practicing yoga, certain groups of muscles contract and relax, thereby massaging all internal organs from the outside and supporting their normal functioning.

6) Yoga helps in preventing obesity

Yoga exercises stimulate the production of gamma-aminobutyric acid in the body, which is responsible for weight loss. Also, most poses in yoga develop such muscle groups, which usually remain untouched by other kinds of sports activities.


7) Yoga can increase your willpower and endurance

Almost every asana in yoga is aimed at stretching the muscles and joints. If you’re expecting some real help from yoga classes, you’re gonna have to hold some poses for more than a minute. It may seem easy at first sight, but yoga may help you develop willpower and endurance because some poses are very inconvenient.

8) Yoga can increase your IQ

Well, it sounds a bit weird, but it’s really true. The thing is that yoga includes not only static performance of asanas and work with breathing, but also meditation. According to researchers at the University of Illinois, after a couple of hours of yoga, performing complex mathematical tasks becomes a lot easier.

9) Yoga teaches you how to breathe properly

Following such spiritual practice, as yoga involves concentrating on breathing. When you control your breathing, your lungs get filled with oxygen more, and breathing itself becomes deeper, which is another advantage of yoga.

10) Yoga helps in combating stress and depression

After the first class, your body and mind feel a deep relaxation, you feel much better, and stress and depression just recede into the background. Raja Yoga is especially effective in this case. It helps not only cope with stress and depression but also allows you to develop spiritually and improve yourself as a person.

There are many other advantages of yoga. But what impact this Hindu practice will have on you can be seen only after your first yoga class. The only thing that remains is to choose where to exercise: at home or in a group.

Online Test Prep and Homework/ Tutoring

Do you have high school students? My first daughter is nearing the end of her high school career and getting ready for college is so much more stressful than I thought. I have been so worried about her testing and will she score high enough to get into a good college. A scholarship is very important to us.

I have been searching for online help to help with testing and prep programs. I finally found one! Caddell Prep is an online test prep program that has all of the practice our kids need. It's so crazy we have 4 kids that will be in college within the next 6 years. We have lots of practicing to do.

Caddell Prep offers three services  Online Test Prep, Free Web-Based Homework Assignments for Teachers and Students, and One-on-One Tutoring and Small-Class Test Prep (on Staten Island). I love companies show their clients they really care by going that extra mile. Face to face tutoring is so awesome. We don't live in their face to face service area but it would be amazing if we did.

The tests that Caddell Prep helps with include the following.
  • SHSAT (Specialized High School Admissions Tests)
  • TACHS (Test for Admission to Catholic High Schools)
  • SAT
  • SAT: Our Review of Math Fundamentals
Those are all so important. We have been pushing her so hard for the past 11 years to go as far as she can and now we are almost to the finish line!

So, what does it cost? That's a big question. Well, that's the simple part. It's only $9 a month for the subscription. What makes it even better is, there are fee parts too.

There are vocabulary flashcards and quizzes.  I like the vocabulary, it helped me bring a broader selection to my writing. This is an amazing idea to help with tutoring. Our youngest daughter is going to start homeschooling this year and it will be a great resource for her studies!!

There is also flew Web-Based math homework. That's so awesome. I have a picture posted below. Click on it and it will bring you to the Online Prep Test website to their free sample math homework. Check it out.

If you are looking for an easy way to help your kids to be the best that they can be and give them the best advantages possible, Online Test Prep is a great way to go. What our kids do in school will directly affect how their whole life goes. Getting into a good college, obtaining a degree, securing a career, all depends on how they were doing in high school.


Breast Feeding Help and Lactation Experts at AmWell #MomsLoveAmwell

My best friend is expecting. Some of you may know that already. She was the inspiration for this years' baby guide, Womb to Walking where we have reviewed some very amazing product reviews related to pregnancy and baby products throughout baby's first year.

One thing I really wanted to cover was breastfeeding and some awesome good information about that. I had the opportunity to work with AmWell (American Well)- an online based doctors office that you can do from the comfort of your cell phone or laptop/computer. It's amazing. I have gone to them before and I love the privacy and convenience of that.

Amwell Lactation Experts are available to make an appointment all the time and some are available for immediate visits which are great. I scheduled my appointment for this morning and was able to ask some really awesome questions and get professional answers. Some of my ideas were myth busted and I think that's awesome.

I was so excited when I was done with the appointment, I called my friend right away to share the news. It wasn't just a share the awesome info I had written down but, the medical professional I talked to emailed me all of the info I would be able to share for future reference.

What I love about the AmWell Lactation Experts being online in the comfort of my home is there are no surprise visits from a stranger with great intentions. That can be traumatizing to a new mom ( I was so embarrassed when one showed up at my house 16 years ago). I was engorged and a woman wrapped my boob in cabbage leaves and tea bags. It was a great adventure and she meant well but, it was embarrassing.


Some really great reasons to use AmWell include:
*Lactation consultants are not available at every hospital this addresses that issue.
*New mothers have so many questions when it comes to breastfeeding their new babies, however, not every mother is able to see a board-certified lactation consultant to help answer those questions before leaving the hospital
*Video allows the consultants to assist with latching, breast pain due to feeding issues, questions about milk supply or going back work
*Allows new mothers at any stage to get answers to their questions and issues usually within 24 hours of request.

  Interview with a lactation expert

Engorged breasts- what to do?

The most important thing to do is express the milk. Even if you have to do it by hand make sure you have something to express it into. Moving the milk so your breasts can continue to produce.

What are the signs of mastitis?

Mastitis is very painful. Some of the signs to watch out for with mastitis are flu symptoms, fever, soreness in the breasts, swelling, hot patches, redness, nipple discharge. Some of the symptoms are just like a plugged duct.

For producing milk, is food necessary to make more milk?

The expert made some great points. Making milk is one of those amazing things that a mother's body does. It really is a magical thing to me. Eat like normal and you will make the milk that the baby needs pretty much. The more milk you move out of your breasts, the more milk your body will make. 

Her example was in third world countries where women are barely able to feed themselves, they still make enough to feed their baby. It's beautiful.

*Myth Buster* Caffeine does not slow milk production. 

Are there foods that should be avoided for baby's sake?

The baby will let you know if there are things that should be avoided. Watch out for poop to change or fussiness. 

One of the best ideas that she said was to keep a food diary. That way you know which foods you have eaten that may not agree with the baby's tummy. Or other things like fussiness, not sleeping and gas are signs to watch out for.

Is it safe for mom to have a few drinks?

If a mom wants to drink a glass or two of wine, how long does she wait to nurse?

The amount of time it takes to get the alcohol through the blood to the milk is quite awhile. The body filters and cleans so by the time the alcohol gets through the body, it's not going to really affect the milk.

Drinking more alters the question.

Do the pump and dump 3 times to be safe?

If you are taking a night to get drunk or have a few more than just a few drinks, then yes pumping and storing it would be better. Pumping and dumping is a No.

The best time to nurse if you will be drinking is when you first start because of the time it takes to get to the milk. If you had more than a few drinks, you can pump the milk and store it. You can add in the non-alcohol breastmilk to dilute it but it's still safe.

What to do about working and breastfeeding?

There are so many obstacles with breastfeeding and working. It's the balance every mom has to make. But it is possible. Not every job makes it easy to breastfeed. In most places, there aren't rooms to go and sit. You may only have a bathroom to pump in and only a few minutes at that.

A manual pump is the best option for these times. You don't have to worry about the setup time or cleaning it every time like an electric pump. If you have a manual pump, you can store it in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator in between pumps and it is perfectly safe. You can disinfect it when you get home after work.

The most important thing is making sure you take the time to pump even if it is only 5 minutes every hour or so. That keeps the milk production going.

Is nursing good for all ages? Is there an age cut off that moms should be aware of?

If you are able to have a baby, you are able to breastfeed as far as age goes. There isn't any age restrictions or cautions. It's pretty cool how that works.

AmWell is a great place to find a reliable IBCLC to help you along the way. No life is perfect and there are questions. Find your answers at AmWell.
