Dear Friends,

This newsletter is aimed at creating awareness on a chosen health issue or medical condition. We wish to educate people on the condition and its prevention. Also, how the different Systems of Medicine and Complementary Therapies help in treating the condition.

This month we have focused on Stress which is relevant to all. Even if we cannot avoid it in our daily lives, we need to help ourselves cope with it better.

Meditation Spot at SOUKYA

Sit with the back straight and eyes closed, in any comfortable posture. Detach from the chain of thoughts; detach from the external sound. Slowly focus on the breaths. Follow the inhalations and exhalations. Observe the air passing in through the nostril, as you inhale and the air passing out through the nostrils with exhalation. Simply follow this without interfering with the pattern. Gradually you will notice the breaths getting deeper, slower and rhythmic, filling you with calmness. Your mind is focussed fully on the breaths and there are no other thoughts in the mind. Enjoy this state of total calmness!!!

A health drink for the monsoon:

Monsoon is the time when the atmospheric temperature dips suddenly after the hot summer months. This reflects in the body too. We could keep the body warm with this simple recipe.

Til juice:

Soak 2 tablespoons of black sesame seeds for 3-4 hours. Add 2 tablespoons of grated jaggery( molasses), or jaggery syrup and grind it with water or diluted skim milk. Filter, and drink a glass of this juice either mid morning or mid after- noon. Sesame keeps the body warm and lubricates the joints. You get the added benefit of iron from the molasses too!


Stress Management at SOUKYA

Stress is defined as 'bodily or mental tension'. It may result from unpleasant events, like death or loss of a job or pleasant events like marriage or birth of a baby. The control we have over the stress in our lives is the key. For those who feel they are in control of their lives, the stress is minimal as compared to those who feel helpless often leading to depression. Read More...
