As age progresses, one should focus on HOW YOU DO rather than how much you can do.

 
 

The basic principle in yoga is the union of the various aspects of our existence such as breath, body and mind. 

Of course, elderly can do yoga asanas - provided they keep some guidelines in mind.

Yoga for Sehalifs

Posted by K K THAM on Sunday, October 4, 2009, In : Fitness 
It is generally accepted that weight or resistance training is good for the bones whereas Tai Chi and Yoga are suitable for building balance. 

It is dangerous for Sehalifs (Second Half Lifers) to fall because their bones are not as strong as they used to be.  It can be observed that Sehalifs who break their hips falling generally have little chance of recovery.    You must have seen babies or children falling down, and noticed that more often than not, they pick themselves up and are not hurt...

Notes on Brick Walls

When clearing my bookshelf, I came across an old book published in 2010, The Last Lecture, which was an International Bestseller at that time, having sold five million copies.  Flipping through the pages that had turned yellow, this quote struck a chord in me because only recently I was discussing with a friend how to handle brick walls that attempt to stop us.

Flee 9 to 5

Whether you are retired, retrenched or re-organizing your career choice, the book Flee 9 to 5, Get 6 - 7 figures and do what you love by Ben Angel provides plenty of suggestions.

I particularly like the Six publicity formulas you can use to help you get more media coverage at page 143.

It happens. It happens every day. People grow apart. Friends walk hand in hand until they find that their parts no longer intertwine. Lovers kiss to notice that this kiss that once meant weak knees and beating hearts no longer tastes of sweet love but of bitter goodbye. You once poured your heart out to the boy who was your best friend but when you see him again, it’s like the silence swallows you whole and you can’t think of one word to say. So you stare and stare and try to figure out what happened to create this chasm, this black abyss that opened up between you. And most of the time it’s not an argument that tore you apart but life itself. It’s you and it’s them. You changed. You grew up. You made decisions. You moved on. Things that used to mean the world now mean nothing and people that used to make you feel like you could climb the highest mountain now make you feel like drowning at the bottom of the sea. And that’s okay. Because people come and people go and it happens for a reason. Some friendships aren’t meant to last a lifetime, some people can’t be kept, some relationships aren’t worth holding on to. So let go. If they don’t make you happy anymore, let them go.
