Use your body as a tool to build itself, by awakening the senses with simple but effective techniques.
Strengthen your senses
It is now a universally validated scientific fact that breathing is the single most important feature for optimum health, fitness, wellness and well-being. Regulated breath is taught to people when they go to gyms, to swim or to dance, but moreover the breathing disciplines that pranayama offers is far superior to all. Breath becomes the single most important point while discussing tools that the body can use to heal itself. Let me tell you that seven minutes devoted to breathing everyday will make sure that a minimum of 70 years of your life will be disease-free. Breathing awakens your senses, as the nostrils are the gateway to your brain’s health. The more you breathe naturally, consciously and rhythmically, the more your brain gets tuned in and in rhythm with the movements of the sun, the moon, the planets, the stars and synchronicity gets established. It is said that with breathing there is a shift in consciousness, establishing the rhythm of the heart, which further determines the flow of the body. So synchronicity, rhythm and flow, all put together awaken our senses and make our brain alert, improving our cognitive strengths exponentially.
When you sleep and rest in the night, that is the time all repair, revitalization and rejuvenation happen, and this eventually supports and ensures growth. It’s important to remember that growth happens in the night. The day gives rise to catabolic activity while the night is the domain of anabolic activity. All humans grow predominantly at night as our systems get restored and healed while at rest. So please ensure that your rest is deep, sound and alone and by that I mean, that you sleep by yourself. Do not take your office, your boss, your family or your stress to bed. Sleep soundly and get wholesome rest out of it.
Eat Plant Diet
Another key player in building the body is food and I promote plant-based foods which are rich in fibre, wholesome and full of vitality, textures and colours. They have everything it takes to fulfill our nutritional requirements, are easy for our bodies to digest and most importantly we are able to get harmonized and synchronized with the Universe.
Now let’s delve in to further subtleties. Start smelling fragrances such as aromatic oils, flowers, wet earth, green grass, the bark of the tree and the moisture in the air along the seaside. These will heighten your senses because as soon as your body gets in touch with anything that is natural such as the chirping of the birds, the sound of the flow of the rivers and streams, the sound of the wind and waves, your senses are stimulated and awakened and they provide the possibility for you to draw energy out of them. Visually looking at the blue expanse of the sky or the vastness of the ocean or the immensity of lush rainforests, or simply looking at the beautiful animals and all of creation helps us stimulate our senses and experience a dimension, which is beyond the perception of our five senses.
