The key to your health

After every tiring day we all need to relax and enjoy the life. I started looking for the best way to relax and feel the life around me, because the life isn’t only work, work and again work… If you think I’m right, So you have your own way to enjoy life or you’re like me and are still looking for other options to feel good.

Do you want to know what I found ? I’m sure you want :) So here are some tips to help you feel at ease and make you feel better.

You can start with practice breathing techniques: Slow down your breathing and actively concentrate on it. This is always the easiest way to self-calm, provided you remember to resort to it.
Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.
Inhale deeply as you count to five, hold your breath for five seconds, then exhale slowly, counting to five. Do this ten times to relax your muscles and nerves. As you breathe out, visualize the stress and tension leaving your body through your breath.

Play some relaxing music like this song:


Start practice positive thinking: Positive thinking isn’t about wishful or dreamer thinking; it’s about making the most of the situations that you find yourself in and avoiding any tendency to add negative overlays. Use visualization techniques. While you might not feel calm and relaxed, imagining a calm and relaxed scene in your mind can do wonders to improve your outlook. Picture beaches, lying down resting, going for a hike, etc., to help you stay relaxed.

Use affirmations to change your outlook on life and stop yourself from always jumping to negative conclusions. Affirmations are short, powerful statements that build you up and increase your confidence, helping you to expect positive outcomes. Be careful about the words you choose – the things you say about yourself over and over again will ensure that you believe your own rhetoric. Use positive, believable, and caring words about yourself.
Teach yourself to step back and see the “big picture” when you’re in the thick of things that don’t seem to be going well. Recognize that most problems are temporary, and minor setbacks on the path to achieving larger goals.

You can try to Meditate: Find a quiet place and focus on calming your mind. There are several different forms of meditation, such as mantras, labyrinths, Sahaja Yoga and Buddhist meditation, among others. Remember that meditation requires practice – the more you practice, the better you’ll get. The internet has a lot of information about this.

If you have leg pain  or they are just very tired you can try this : Close your eyes. Begin to breathe deeply in through your nose, and out through your mouth. Do this for a few moments, until you feel “settled in”. Just focus on your breathing. When you are ready, tighten every muscle in your feet as hard as you can until it just begins to hurt (or count to ten, whichever you prefer), then immediately relax all of those muscles at the same time. After a few seconds, clench your calf and shin muscles as tightly as possible until they just start to hurt, and then instantly relax them.

If you use some other techniques, share them with us  :)


Hope, love, faith or just a movie…

In this post, I want to meet you with someone who is something like a guru for me and I have so much respect for him. Some of you might know more than me about him, but I want to tell you about one film that I watched. There, the 14th Dalai Lama will have to answer on 10 questions.

First, let me tell you something about Dalai Lama:

dalai-lama-quotes
The Dalai Lama is a high lama in the Gelug or “Yellow Hat” school of Tibetan Buddhism, founded by Tsongkhapa (1357–1419). The name is a combination of the Mongolian word dalai meaning “Ocean” and the Tibetan word bla-ma (with a silent “b”) meaning “guru, teacher”.

The 14th Dalai Lama (religious name: Tenzin Gyatso, shortened from Jetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso, born Lhamo Dondrub, 6 July 1935) is the 14th and current Dalai Lama, as well as the longest lived incumbent. Dalai Lamas are the head monks of the Gelugpa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, and is also well known for his lifelong advocacy for Tibetans inside and outside Tibet.
His story of life is staggering and will touch your soul surely. In one of my next posts I will talk more about his life.

The name of the Film that I want to talk right now is “10 Questions For The Dalai Lama” :
The film begins as a chronicle of Rick Ray’s journey through India to interview Tenzin Gyatso. The film switches between present and recent past, with stages of the trip introducing sections on the personal history of Tenzin Gyatso, the process used to select a Dalai Lama and Gyatso’s journey into exile.
The interview with Tenzin Gyatso begins midway through the film. This section is inter-cut between sections addressing philosophical questions and current affairs. The film also features the daily life of Tenzin Gyatso, his international peace efforts and his work with Tibetan refugees. The film features interviews with a Buddhist monk who fled violence in Tibet and Tenzin Tethong, who has served in the Tibetan Government in Exile for 20 years. Towards the end, the film touches on the issues of internet censorship in China, changes in Tibetan culture, and the 11th Panchen Lama controversy.

And remember “Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”

For me its a great Honor to talk about The Dalai Lama.

IMAX at HOME

Do you like the big screen of IMAX? Every time when I watch movie at this huge screen its awesome, I always want to come back into the theater. Last time when i was there I watched “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in 3D. I felt like the hobbit hits me to the head :D
Now we can watch movies at the big screen of IMAX, at Home! Yes it’s realistic, maybe it will cost a little bit.

I’m sure it will be Amazing !

And remember to be happy :)

Where to surf ?

Where is the best spot in the world to ride the waves? We all love the big waves, I started getting interested in Surfing, when once I saw “Baywatch” and in one of the episodes, a beauty girl rode the waves and she was amazing!
In the next rows i want to share with you some of the best places where you can go to surf and to have a great time with your friends to ride the waves.


1.Tamarindo, Costa Rica

After the popular surfing film The Endless Summer 2 showcased Tamarindo’s goods, tourists were tripping over themselves trying to get to this Central American hotspot. Now developed into a full-fledged resort, Tamarindo has not lost its edge as an exclusive surfing spot. Spots like Little Hawaii and Witch’s Rock are among the most legendary, thanks to aggressive swells and almost perfect weather.

2.Jeffrey’s Bay, South Africa

A notorious surfing destination thanks to its six superb breakpoints and consistently great weather all year, Jeffrey’s Bay sees some picture-perfect waves roll onto its beaches, including “Kitchen Windows,” “Magna Tubes” and “Albatross.” It is no wonder the popular Billabong Surfing Festival attracts the world’s best surfers here every July — the conditions are ideal.

3.Pipeline, Hawaii

Here it is — the daddy of all waves. It’s the site most surfers will never be good enough to surf, but dream of riding its perfect crest. Aptly, it’s located at the island that created surfing, and is one of the heaviest waves in the world, scaling over six meters over a shallow base of razor blade table reef. If you’ve got the balls, charge this flawless water tube and experience one of nature’s finest creations.

Any surfer will tell you: once you’ve hopped on a board once, you just can’t stop. So even the inexperienced wave lovers who want to catch some big breaks and add “dude,” “tubular” and “awesome” to their everyday lingo should seriously check out these 10 destinations. Each one offers great surfing conditions in an idyllic setting where you can hit the water hard during the day and then experience a resort at night. So, are you ready to ride?

Smile ! (:
