About Me and Why I Blog

I am a free-lance writer, blogger and student living in Canada. My education includes degrees in journalism and psychology. I have been published in several on-line magazines such as the Mystik Way and Strathcona Connect as well as in an Anthology in 2011. My future aspirations include completing a self-help book and completing my studies in herbology and (w)holistic therapies. Belong to a poet group, writer's group and an artists collective in my community.

Blogging at Little Bursts of Inspiration is one of my passions and I write what strikes me at the moment.

What I Write About in My Blog

I write about herbology, mental health, psychology related issues, yoga, acupuncture, alternative therapies, massage therapy, diet, etc.

Self fulfilling prophecy applies equally to our own expectations of ourselves. If we believe that the situation will lead to failure we might not try hard enough and fulfill that prediction. On the other hand, if we expect ourselves to do well in certain tasks, we will often rise to the occasion.

This concept once again shows us the importance of self awareness. Being aware of our thoughts and attitudes towards certain people or situations allows us to examine the validity of those thoughts, and to adjust them appropriately to get the desired results. Mindfulness brings this unconscious mental habit into conscious awareness, thus providing an opportunity to change it.

Yoga Benefits

Increased energy. Do you feel completely drained out by the end of the day? Shuttling between multiple tasks through the day can sometimes be quite exhausting. A few minutes of yoga everyday provides the secret to feeling fresh and energetic even after a long day. A 10-minute online guided meditation benefits you immensely, leaving you refreshed and recharged in the middle of a hectic day.

All-round fitness. You are truly healthy when you are not just physically fit but also mentally and emotionally balanced. As Sri Sri Ravi Shankar puts it, “Health is not a mere absence of disease. It is a dynamic expression of life – in terms of how joyful, loving and enthusiastic you are.” This is where yoga helps: postures, pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation are a holistic package.

Stress relief. A few minutes of yoga during the day can be a great way to get rid of stress that accumulates daily – in both the body and mind. Yoga postures, pranayama and meditation are effective techniques to release stress. You can also experience how yoga helps de-tox the body and de-stress the mind at a Sri Sri Yoga Level 2 Course.

Inner peace. We all love to visit peaceful, serene spots, rich in natural beauty. Little do we realize that peace can be found right within us and we can take a mini-vacation to experience this any time of the day! Benefit from a small holiday every day with yoga and meditation. Yoga is also one of the best ways to calm a disturbed mind.

Yoga and Creativity: Catch the wave!

Dawn marks a new day’s creation. Morning is a great time to start the day.
