Mudras for health & Cure for reducing Belly fat: Sun Mudra: Bend the ring finger on to the palm and press the second fold with the thumb. This helps digestion, increase heat in the body and reduce fat of the body. Bhajarava Mudra (Gesture of Shiva): Sit in sidhasana, and do this mudra. In this rest your right hand on your left. Rest your hands in your lap, with your palms facing up and let the tips of the thumbs touch. This mudra increases both resistance against cold, changes in weather and also against bronchial infection, fever due to cold. It makes lungs create heat in the body and burn up accumulated phlegm and fat. Retaining air by interlocking index finger and thumb: If the middle of the thumb No. 2 is pressed by the index finger, the retention of air increases. If the base of the thumb No. 3 is pressed, the retention is maximum. Precautions: 1. While doing this mudra, one must drink plenty of green vegetable juices and fruit juices and water- minimum 8 glasses. 2. With Pranayama they give better results. a) While doing pranayama, after inhaling air press the upper part of the thumb with the index finger, this will help to retain air easily in the lungs for longer time than without such locking. b) If the middle of the thumb no. 2 is pressed, the retention increases. Now, if base of the thumb no. 3 is pressed, the retention is maximum. Health Tips: Big hips are good for health. British Scientists claimed that carrying extra weight on your hips, bum and thighs is good for one’s health, protecting against heart and metabolic problems. Hip fat mops up harmful fatty acids and contains an anti-inflammatory agent that stops arteries clogging. Big bums are preferable to extra fat around the waistline which gives no such protection. Having too little fat round the hips can lead to serious metabolic problems because there is evidence that fat around the thighs and backside is harder to shift than fat around the waist. It is broken down quickly and it releases a lot of cytokines, which trigger inflammation in the body, linked to heart disease and diabetes
The Effortlessly thin people. Learn something from forever slim people and steal their habits to remain slim like them. My Co-lecturer Swaran (lecturer in Chemistry) was very slim, but at the dining table she used to eat lots of food, which we could not afford to eat. We all staff members used to wonder how she could eat so much, yet remain slim. May be she was just doing right things without realizing it, things that you can do too. The Consultant Nutritionist, Pooja Mukhija, shows you how it goes: *Choose Satisfaction: Satiating hunger is not the same as feeling stuffed, if degrees of hunger are set on a scale of 1-10 – 10 being the most full – most skinny people stop at about 6 or 7. This habit is not difficult to inculcate as the brain takes about 20 minutes to receive the signal that it is full. Eating slowly helps you to receive that signal. *Make Peace with Occasional Hunger: Slim people don’t fear hunger or panic when there’s no food around. It does you no harm to skip a meal a few times in your life to see how it feels to go without food, and how it’s okay to feel hunger at times. Also cognitive behavioral therapist Judith Beck recommends skipping a meal – lunch preferably, never breakfast – is the best way to train yourself to lessen anxiety during spurts of hunger. It ensures that you control your hunger as opposed to your hunger controlling you. PS: This particular practice is only meant for those who won’t have any health conditions that require regular nutritional intake, like diabetes. *Focus Elsewhere: The most effortlessly thin people I know focus on things other than food. They take their time making conversation over dinner or direct their passions to places other than the dining table. Not centering your life on food, and developing other hobbies, will really help you realize that joy can be found in so many other things. Move their Bodies: Slim people are light on their feet because they use their feet. Ten thousand steps a day is a great number to get your health parameters improving. Use a pedometer to bump up your level of activity.
