Silent meditation retreats are excellent to re-connect with your inner self. They allow you to detox your mind and body with the help of mindfulness activities, a healthy diet, and deep meditation sessions. They also give you the time to connect with nature and to understand yourself intimately. By offering time away from the chaotic life of the modern age and gadgets, silent meditation retreats allow you to re-evaluate yourself, gain a sense of purpose, calm your mind, and give re-direction to life. Thus, it is extremely beneficial for someone who is suffering from high stress, relationship issues, lack of motivation and purpose, and feeling directionless. It is also beneficial for those who are recovering from a recent trauma whether it is physical or mental. However, it may not be a good idea for someone who is an active patient of a mental health condition and is undergoing medication and therapy. This is because the diet may hamper the special requirements of the individual and also because he or she may not get the active attention from retreat leaders and other retreat members at all times.
Hi everyone, I have always avoided any form of cardio other than swimming due to my asthma. Whilst I have always wanted to run it has always left me gasping for air with a burning sensation in my lungs. My wife suggested I try C25K and now I am hooked. I have just finished W2D3 of C25K. The first few runs were quite difficult, I was gasping for air but by adjusting my speed and concentrating on my breathing I have pushed through. I am a little nervous about W3D1 up next which includes the 3 minute runs. I have been doing Yin Yoga for several years now (another recommendation from my wife). This practice has really helped me with my stretches and sorting out any aches and pains. Yogic breathing techniques have also helped me a great deal. I am hoping to be in the best shape of my life by the time my 40th birthday arrives in October. I will keep you all updated!
I have found since I took up running & especially since I managed the 5K mark that my leg muscles seem uncomfortably tight, I am guessing some of you find this too. I found this yoga video on YouTube & it really helped, even after just the one session which given my muscles were tight was not easy, lol! Check it out https://youtu.be/of2spyCtUkw Hope it helps
