I Eat ..therefore I am / Nutrition

We are what we eat. We are what we speak. We are what we see. We are what we hear. We are what we touch. We are what we think. We are….

Descartes said “I think, therefore I am” and “I am, I exist,” mean the same thing. That’s Descartes philosophy and thinking is our being. ..a non-stop activity. Essentially according to the philosophy thinking was the foundation for knowledge but how each one of us thinks depends on our perceptions.

With thinking as the core of human intelligence all our actions are inter-linked based on our thought processes and the stimulus we receive.

Food and diet apply the same psychology. Nutrition is the study of nutrients in food, how the body uses nutrients, and the relationship between diet, health, and disease Based on our perception of taste we eat mindlessly (often times!) giving in to our wants, desires and temptations. We never pause to think how and where the ingredients are sourced from, the behavior of the person cooking, how the food is served, how palatable it is. Ultimately the equation of the food we eat is the sum total from the soil to the cooked dish to the digestion process.

Some things maybe in our control and some not. The choice of foods, to the way we perceive food and our relationship with food matter for health and wellness .How we address our food to the process of chewing plays an important role.  Nowadays it has become a fad and a matter of convenience to eat out or food bought from outside kitchens.  To the extent food porn is gaining popularity to entice our senses!.

Yoga is a way of Life –Life Coaching

Yoga is a way of life. Yoga is being one with the divine.

Yoga is being promoted and marketed in different names and forms from power, hydro, air, rope, hot, Iyengar , Bikram, Vini, Yin, Kundalini yoga, etc.  Any genre of exercise   is a good way to start till it is formed into a habit and the seeds are sown to make it a controlled behavior. Gradually, subtle shifts in the mind and   increased energy levels, is witnessed besides changes in perspective.   Receptivity is improved considerably and resistance vanishes.

It has become a norm nowadays to enroll in yoga classes which are packaged in different names based on the style, techniques and agility of the teacher. Rolling out the mat for an hour for stretches and breathing exercises may lay the foundation for reaching a state of yoga.  However it needs to become a discipline and way of life to become a yogi.

To realize the divinity within us the practice becomes the modus operandi. There are many saints and sages who have written volumes on yoga however the most commonly known is the yoga sutras of Saint Patanjali.

Yoga, as mentioned, is to become aware or realize that we are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but spiritual beings having a human experience.
Practice makes perfect. A steadfast approach and discipline of practicing the asanas and pranayamas is a way for pratyahara and dharana.  However this is not a linear process but subtly inter twined and inter linked. To be able to withdraw our sense perceptions from the outside world to the inner leads to conservation of energy. A concentrated effort results in sustaining and maintaining our demeanor.

Discipline, dedication, determination, devotion will lead to discernment. Being composed, calm relating with clarity, moderation and the ability to restore balance are the results of continued practice.

Yamas and niyamas are tools that pave the way for grace to flow.  These are ethical guidelines for a moral code of conduct. Effectively a to-do and not- to- do pointers

Our  view,s opinions, negative thinking ,strong belief  patterns ,sense perceptions, walls ,barriers ,fortresses that we build around ourselves slowly crumble and collapse.

Technology has become an essential part of our daily lives , in all spheres from entertainment, education , medical field, travel, lifestyle etc, to the extent life without technology has become unimaginable. There seems to be no bar to the age groups and gender accessing technology.

Symptoms of addiction –

Compulsive checking of text messages

Frequent use of facebook

A feeling of euphoria while on the Web

Social withdrawal

Loss of interest in activities that don’t involve a computer, phone or gadget

Feelings of restlessness when unable to go online

Ignoring the real world and more interested in virtual reality

Technology addiction is an umbrella term that may include addictive behavior to cybersex and online porn; video gaming; gambling; eBay and other online auctions or shopping; social media; excessive texting; or smartphone overuse as well as information overload.

Children who suffer from internet addiction have an increased risk of depression, problems at school, obesity and carpel tunnel syndrome.

Social media and networking have become a playground to release emotions, spread unwanted information, create fear psychosis, boost egos, cause unnecessary flutter, and directly or indirectly this works on the self-esteem of an individual .

Online shopping apps and sites have resulted in many shopaholics to purchase from the comfort of their phones and homes. This has resulted in a compulsive buying disorder with all the temptations online from different portals.

Similarly eating disorders  is on the rise through food porn. The different yummyilicious and exotic visual treats posted by restaurants literally makes one drool!. The food and delivery portals aid with quick delivery of orders to enable customers succumb to their temptations.!

Well this is a trap …caught in a web of sights, lights and colours that work on your mind and make you live in an imaginary world of deception .

कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन । मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भुर्मा ते संगोऽस्त्वकर्मणि ॥

You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself to be the cause of the results of your activities, nor be attached to not doing your duty. – Bhagavad Gita, Chapter II, Verse 47

Expectations lead to disappointments but suffering is optional. Act without expectation and what you get is a bonus!

It is not possible to lead a saintly life in mainstream world but it is beneficial to understand the ways of human behavior and the workings of our own minds to sail through life. Each one of us acts based on our learning experiences and perceptions we have formed. These may or may not resonate with the personnel and members who we interact with on a daily basis.. However inter-personal relation is a skill that is learnt. Positive interpersonal relationships will allow effective communication

An interpersonal relationship is a strong, deep, or close association or acquaintance between two or more people that may range in duration from brief to enduring. This association may be based on inference, love, solidarity, regular business interactions, or some other type of social commitment.. Communication serves as an  inter personal tool. They are like the spokes of a cycle wheel all inter connected.

We are taught about reward and punishment in our school days or through our parents and these form strong thought patterns in us and get registered in our minds. These form the seeds for our expectations as we proceed through our lives.

An exposure to the study of human behaviour through our psychologists in Chennai can clear your queries and doubts and train you in inter personal skills . A meeting with Praveen Saanker , Life Coach, will infuse you with conviction.

What does growing up really mean?

“Man is born to achieve life, but it all depends on him. He can miss it. He can go on breathing, he can go on eating, he can go on growing old, he can go on moving towards the grave – but this is not life. This is gradual death from the cradle to the grave, a seventy-year-long gradual death. And because millions of people around you are dying in this gradual, slow death, you also start imitating them. Children learn everything from those who are around them; and we are surrounded by the dead.

“So first we have to understand what I mean by life. It must not be simply growing old; it must be growing up. And these are two different things. Any animal is capable of growing old. Growing up is the prerogative of human beings. Only a few claim the right.

“Growing up means moving deeper into the principle of life every moment; it means going farther away from death – not towards death. The deeper you go into life, the more you understand the immortality within you. You are going away from death; a moment comes when you can see that death is nothing but changing clothes, or changing houses, changing forms – nothing dies, nothing can die; death is the greatest illusion there is.”

Osho, Beyond Enlightenment, Talk #28

To experience and understand the difference between growing up and growing old the psychologists in chennai will explain and train you in how to keep the element of joy, fun , laughter and the child-like nature in you alive. Life as its said is not short but finite.

Through visualization and meditation techniques the youthfulness in us can be nurtured and nourished.

To see a silver lining in every cloud or the proverbial pot of gold at the end of a rainbow meet Mr Praveen Saanker for a change in views, opinions and perceptions.
