Deep breathing means - Adopting a habit of breathing deeply. From your nostril not from your mouth. That's it ! Normally most people ( i.e. almost 95 % of all of us) who are leading a sedentary life style and working on jobs that requires 'using their heads' all day long, the outcome of a busy, complex and demanding life is somewhat like this:No energy in the end of the day, mental sluggishness, dilapidated bodies, greater susceptibility to germ and infections, wear-and-tear of the entire body, more work for the heart, irregular blood pressure, tensions in body and nerves etc. Remember this important fact: To function properly, our brain needs three times more oxygen than the rest of our organs; and unless this is provided it will try to appropriate its supply by drawing on the over-all allotment! This explains why so many city people, working at sedentary jobs, doing mental work all day long, tend to become dilapidated and have greater susceptibility to germ and infections than persons who lead active outdoor lives. Sedentary individuals are permanently oxygen-starved. Yet this situation can be avoided at will. Air is nourishment to our bodies just as much as food and drink. Air gives our blood the supply of oxygen it must have in order to feed itself so that it may, in turn, feed the tissues, nerves, glands and vital organs. Without it our skin, bones, teeth and hair could not remain in condition. Our digestion-the process of utilizing the food we eat-fails at once without a proper supply of oxygen to the blood. Even our thinking processes are slowed down without intake and exhalation of fresh air-which is the reason mental sluggishness overtakes us in an ill-ventilated room In a single day we breath about 23,000 times. The average volumes of air taken in with a single breath is about 20 cubic inches, depending on a person's size, sex, posture, the nature of the surrounding atmosphere and one's physical and emotional state. However, with proper attention given to the breathing, this volume may be increased to 100 or even 130 cubic inches per breath. Breathing is an activity which is indispensable for our existence. Nobody can live without breathing as the oxygen is the life blood of all organisms on earth.However, most of us breath in a shallow manner. The inhalation and exhalation of air in and out of body occurs on a very superficial level in most of us. People just dont care to inhale deeply since they don't find any compulsive urge to do so.Though not breathing deeply does not harm us directly, it has its own long term negative effects on our body. Let us understand what happens when we do not adopt correct breathing: As the average person reaches middle age, lung tissues tend to grow less and less elastic. Years of improper breathing take their toll. The chest itself has a tendency to grow rigid The consequences is an accumulation of uric acid in the blood stream which often leads to those vague syndromes of pain and discomfort that doctors in general diagnose with a shrug as the miseries of aging, which they can cheerfully advise you to learn to live with since nothing can be done about them. Backaches, headaches, stiffening muscles and joints, neuritis, rheumatism are some of the more common of these complaints. Excess fat is another, for as we begin to grow old and proper circulation is impeded by a sluggish diaphragm or hardening arteries, the red blood corpuscles become distributed unevenly and fat accumulates in spots instead of being burned up. However, all of these complaints may be avoided, or at least considerably retarded, if only we learn to breath scientifically. Deep breathing (along with Deep Contraction) also has a direct salutary effect on Obesity, Since the cleansing, stimulating action of deep breathing improves metabolism and that, in turn, transforms deposits of fat into body fuel, or added energy. In other words, "Careful reorientation of your breathing habits can provide you with 5 times the oxygen and rid you of five times the carbon dioxide, with which you habitually function." Just incorporate a habit of deep breathing in your busy, complex and demanding life and all the above negative outcomes of it will vanish like a magic !
Knowing About The Laws of Persuasion For Your Insurance Leads Part 1 Whether youre selling health insurance or dental insurance, always the most important thing is to do is closing a lot of sales, because it is the bottomline in sales. Many salespeople spend a lot of their time trying to find out how they can possibly close more sales. They read books and learn from the top sellers, but the only fundamental truth there is to know about sales is that nobody will ever buy from you if you are not persuasive enough. The art of persuasion, thankfully, is not that difficult to master if you only know the laws governing it. Theres a science behind these laws the psychologist Robert Cialdini wrote about the laws of persuasion in his book Influence: The Psychology Of Persuasion. Law of ReciprocationThis law is another way to state the law of karma. It states that if we give something to a person, that person will feel indebted to us and, in return, will give something in return. Cialdini experimented on the validity of this law when he sent out Christmas card to some people he didnt know personally, but he found in the white pages of the telephone directory. He reported that at least 30% of those who received his cards sent a card back to him. The Law of Reciprocation is always at work in business salespeople give gifts to their clients, while power-dressed sales executives treat their clients to lunch. Somehow, giving creates an obligation in another person to give something back. All of these free things are setting up an obligation. Using this approach, salespeople will make you feel obligated to give something back by buying their product or service. Insurance websites too apply the Law of Reciprocation by giving out free health insurance leads to freelance agents with the end of mind of generating more sales. Law of ContrastThis law indicates that whatever information is volunteered to us, we always tend to compare it with similar information that we already know or that is presented to us at a given time. If we track this in insurance sales, it really doesnt matter if someone is selling you the cheapest no-exam life insurance program, if you are presented with an exam-required life insurance program that is priced lower, you will only be looking at the price. A very good insurance agent will point out to you that no-exam life insurance and exam-required life insurance are apples and oranges in comparison. Law of Social Proof This law states that humans are basically no different from sheep. They tend to follow each other. This law becomes very apparent in two conditions: (a)Uncertainty or when a person does not know what to do or even sure what he or she wants. In this case, a person becomes easily influenced by people surrounding him or her. (b)Similarity or when people identify with a person. This situation can be effectively seen in a testimonial housewives are more easily influenced by a testimonial featuring a housewife.
If youve listened to the buzz around the fitness world lately or perused the latest workout books, youve probably heard the experts referencing core fitness in some shape or form. Traditionally, strength training has been dominated by exercises focused on isolating the muscles of the arms and legs. In fact, if you look at many of the weight machines that have become popular in modern gyms, youll notice that they require you to sit or recline while you use them.While these machines will effectively help you build the muscles that they target, the problem is that, in real life, we dont use our muscles that way. We lift a box from the floor to a shelf, swing a golf club, push our children on the swing set, or climb a rock wall. In fact, the vast majority of the things we do require all of the muscles in our bodies to function together and be coordinated through our mid-sections, or our core.While those activities may make the use of core muscles seem very obvious, this area, made up of the muscles of our midsection, are actually responsible for quite a few of the more subtle functions as well, including posture, balance and stability.A weakened core will often result in poor posture and stability, yet we dont necessarily feel the results of it in areas that show us a direct cause and effect correlation. For example, poor posture, due to a weakened core, might allow our hips to slip out of alignment resulting in knee pain. In fact, quite a few of the chronic muscle and joint pain issues thatAmericans are suffering with today stem from a weakened core.It is no wonder, then, that exercise science has taken a dramatic shift in recent years to include the core in strength training regimes. Now, rather than using a machine to first exercise your legs and then your arms, trainers are suggesting that their clients use free weights or bands to combine exercises such as a squat to overhead press. By linking the two, people are forced to transition the exercise movement through their core, and the "core muscles" in turn help to maintain good posture throughout the exercise. The end result is that we are exercising in a fashion that mimics the movements that we use in everyday life, while creating better posture and increasing our stability and balance.

West Nile Virus, the disease transported by infected mosquitos, continues to remain a threat to the American populace. Already this year, California has recorded over 200 cases resulting in the deaths of five of her residents. With August and September being peak months for this ailment, people across the country are being encouraged to take the necessary steps to protect themselves. Please read on for four helpful tips.1. Destroy Potential Breeding Sites. Standing water is an invitation for mosquitoes to set up home in your yard. If you have a birdbath, bucket, or any other container in your yard make sure that it is free of water, otherwise it becomes a welcome mat for mosquitoes to hatch their larvae. You dont want to get rid of your birdbath? Install a device to keep the water moving [such as a fountain] and the mosquitoes will not set up home.2. Wear Repellent. DEET and Permithin are proven repellants for mosquitoes; products containing these ingredients are sold by most retailers. The Centers for Disease Control [CDC] is also reporting that repellents containing picaridin and oil of lemon eucalyptus have been found to provide reliable and long-lasting protection from mosquito bites.3. Home Maintenance. If your home has screens, examine them for tears that permit mosquitoes to enter your house. Install screens if you do not have them and you want to keep your windows open.4. Spray, Spray, Spray. Not everyone likes the idea of pesticides being sprayed in their neighborhoods, but it has become a necessity in some communities where the mosquito population is out of control. Visit the Environmental Protection Agency web site for information on various spraying programs available. "West Nile Virus" remains a scourge, but it need not affect your outdoor plans completely. Peak mosquito activity is in the early morning as well as in the evening; wear long sleeve shirts and pants to lessen the opportunity of attracting mosquitoes to your yummy skin.
