Impact of Physical Activity on Children’s Health

How about we tweak the old proverb to ‘All study and no Play makes Jack a dull boy’’.  Yes, we agree to this statement, and admit even more with the latest trend where we see children busy with their electronic gadgets, iPads, TV, video games.

In the olden days we’ve seen our parents and grandparents walking miles together to fetch groceries, go to work, walk together, doing things themselves rather than depending on help.

How Yoga Turns Your Bad Thoughts Into Good Thoughts

We learn in grade school science class that energy can appear in either the potential or kinetic form. The electricity in the wiring of your home is available for any use you choose. When you turn a light switch to the “on” position, energy appears in the form of light. This is the kinetic state because the energy is being used or expended. However, when you turn the light switch to the “off” position, the energy remains in the potential state – ready to be used at the flick of a switch.

The inherent power of fear, anger, and self-willed desire can also be stored potentially or expended kinetically, and it is your personal attention that determines in which state the energy resides. If the mind’s conscience (known as “buddhi” in Sanskrit) defines a particular thought as a form of energy that will enable you to fulfill the purpose of your life (a shreya), it is suggesting that you transform the state of that thought energy from the potential into the kinetic by taking some appropriate action. In other words, you are encouraged to think about the shreya, speak in service to the shreya, and take some physical action in service to the shreya.
