Yoga Pose for the Day
By Meghana Pawar – Certified Yoga Trainer
Bhujangasana – The Cobra Pose
Start with 10 minutes of stretching, warm-up and practice yesterday’s yogasana – Tadasana . Now, let’s gear up for today’s simple yet a super effective asana –Bhujangasana. So there are many versions of this posture, we will perform the one that gives us the maximum benefits.
Steps to perform the asana:
Step 1: Lie down on your stomach comfortably. Initial relaxation posture.
Step 2: Bring both your legs in the centre, toes together, heels together, knees together. Keep them together throughout the asana.
Step 3: Bring both your hands beside your chest. Your hands should be extremely close to your body. Elbows and shoulders of both your hands are coming inwards and not outwards.
Step 4: Slowly lift your upper body up with the help of your spine, back and core (stomach) muscles. Neck up fully. Facial muscles relaxed. Close your eyes, don’t strain them while looking up. Note that your body weight is not on the hands at all.
Step 5: Maintain step 4 for 3 to 5 breaths or as per your capacity. To come out, slowly open your eyes and keep your upper body down. Relax your hands and legs.
Severe back ache, neck ache, any acute abdominal issue like ulcers, appendicitis or hernia must avoid. Women who are in their monthly cycle can avoid. Pregnant women must completely avoid this asana.
So there are a lot of benefits of this asana. Consistent practise of Bhujangasana can help:
- To Boost Immunity which is the need of the hour!
- The respiratory, digestive and excretory processes improve.
- It helps improving our digestive system.
- Stretch to the neck and throat improves the blood circulation. It improves the health of thyroid and other glands located there. Balances your hormones thus reduced hormonal issues and even mood swings.
- Back and abdominal muscles are strengthened.
- Blood circulation in the spine region and vertebral region improves.
- Flexibility of the spine is maintained.
- Excessive stooping or slouching causes our back to take an abnormal shape overtime. Performing this asana regularly can help you with the deformities.
- Back pain is reduced and flexibility of your lower back is enhanced.
- Helps relieve stress and fatigue

“Sometimes you need a little crisis to get your adrenaline flowing and help you realise your potential.”
By Jeannette Walls
Book of the Day
Title: 4 Hour Work Week
Author: Timothy Ferriss
Key takeaways from the Book:
• Define our Goals: Tim tells us to define our goals. We must have it extremely clear in our head rather on a paper. He suggested the concept of making a ‘dreamline’ i.e. writing down your dreams from every area of your life and how you plan to achieve them. He gave an example of his dreamline for 6 months. We must jot down clear action steps to achieve them. You can access this sheet sample on www.fourhourblog.com.
• Live today: The concept of the new rich;the ‘new rich’ are those who want their wealth and live a rich life NOW, in the present. He does not believe in working for long hours ‘day in’ and ‘day out’ while saving for retirement and being miserable in the present.
• Eliminate the time wasters: Eliminate people, things and tasks that consume your time and drain your energy. Delegate trivial tasks and focus on important ones. Be effective and not efficient. Being effective is doing things that get you closer to your goals. Being Efficient is doing the task at hand (whether important or not) in the most economical manner.
• Follow the 80/20 rule: Ask these questions: “Which 20% of the sources are causing 80% of my problems and unhappiness?” “Which 20% of sources are resulting in 80% of my desired outcomes and happiness?” And then start working on those 20% sources.
• Automate: Automate your money, your business and your life! Hire virtual assistants, hire employees that can run your business for you and don’t micro-manage.
• Liberate: Don’t be stuck in a cubical. Live a mobile lifestyle, a happy one, one that you always dreamt of! The author brings in the concept of having a free lifestyle and not being bounded by unnecessary things, work, and people. He suggests taking mini-retirements and not worrying about one final retirement scenario. Enjoying life in the present is his mantra.
