Better mental health: Karate and Meditation

hijab-3310184_640.jpg

It’s substantial that the awareness of karate and its in-depth power is being felt by everyone. Karate is nothing but it enlightens you to talk with oneself and give you the authority to defend yourself. It’s an open hand technique which in combinations and perfection is a lethal weapon.

The process of self-realization of what you need is what’s more fundamental. In this race of performance, pressures, compromises, adjustments and stress – we forget our own self! We often tend to loose the focus of ‘who we are’ !  and it is left unattended till we can carry the luggage! We, at www.anandkoti.com  strongly believe “Every Problem has a Solution”

Body wreck’s Mind : Never ending Pain, Heart-break and Trauma

fruit-3074848_640.jpg

Eye to eye ~ Life is beautiful

Whenever the Balance is compromised the consequences are dangerous. Within all are capacity and capabilities we work hard to achieve the respective aim set in life. This can be being an expert in Yoga, Martial Arts, Music, Sports, Work, Business, Cooking, Driving, Swimming, Body building and anything of your respective choice. Apart from the daily chores of life and work.

Mind makes and creates all its way to burn out the body. Everyone once in a while talks about the power of mind and the miracles performed by it. 

However, if the mind is in control, the body is in control!

It’s difficult to maintain a stable, calm and quite mind. The human body has its own way to communicate and if you are well connected with your body you can understand its need. In the pursuit of success, we end up over-doing and exhaust ourselves to the extent that the damage gets deeper and sharper. 

Balance is the law of nature. The Sun and Moon by its nature defines the day and night for us. Based on this all the activities are designed and defined. Similarly, all the things that you are doing in your respective life also need to have a balance. Do not over do it, do not over exhaust yourself! By not addressing your body needs at the right time, you are doing the biggest mistake and are being super rude to yourself. The body needs rest to rejuvenate itself and recover from the depreciation. It needs time to regenerate cells and muscles needs time to grow. Too much of anything is not at all healthy. Sooner or later everyone undergoes its dangerous impact.

Once the threshold is reached, the body will not respond. Despite of doing meditation or yoga! You will experience frequent body pains, irritation, mood swings, muscle cramps, sleepless nights, depression and you can also see the relationships feeling the dent. 

What can possibly help you? 

  • Do not do anything in excess?
  • Work within your schedule and have a daily time-table
  • Learn to say NO
  • Have a balanced diet on TIME 
  • If you are not sure about your workouts regime – find an experienced trainer 
  • Don’t indulge in negative thoughts and don’t get lost in past
  • Everything happens on TIME
  • Hang out with those who help you come out of crisis
  • Don’t punish yourself by always criticizing yourself
  • Meditate and practice yoga
  • Love yourself and practice forgiveness 
  • Trust : The invisible power – God
  • REST your BODY and MIND   

Respect – This body is a rented place 

Human mind is a very powerful tool and it knows how to make you a fool. Try to connect with your body and understand what is its need! Once the mind takes over nothing on this earth can help you. Be brave, strong and practice total acceptance. This will help you give the courage and strength required to control mind. Be kind and humble.    

Cheers,

Love & Luck,

Anand

Power of Mind – Brain हो गया Drain 

Finding peace or say balance in life is the most difficult. Every individual has got a different tuning and perception. It’s not fair to compareWh others.

Why don’t we try to analyze our own self and try to understand how can we be at peace, calm and quite?

fantasy-2824304_640.jpg

Different people Different perception

Perception and reception plays a vital role on how we are going to react. Perception means the ability to see, hear or become aware of something through the senses. However, in the actual reality towards this; even our perception is based on what we really wants to see and hear. 5 senses are involved during the process of perception. We overlook or sometimes just don’t see or accept the reality. Mind creates its own perception, image and visualize drama. It’s capable of creating fantastic sci-fi illusions. Repeatedly we are deceived by our own perception. 

Your mind needs rest and it should be trained to do those task which are fruitful and productive in nature. Training needs practice, dedication, determination and devotion. For me, human mind is the most unpredictable and volatile substance. You need constant remembrance to train it and keep it calm. This is a everyday task, just like breathing and with practice you will auto suggest yourself. 

Do not entertain any negative thoughts, discussion or emotions. Every time you face negativity you have to come up with a positive thought, positive action and be courageous to accept and move ahead.   

Expectations creates heartbreaks; henceforth do not set any kind of expectations from anyone else apart from your own self. Failure to achieve New year resolutions is perfectly okay and acceptable behavior because you never had expectations from yourself. You have accepted that you are weak and you will fail. So there is no disappointments and gradually you have now mastered the art to convince yourself. However, at the same time; we get so furious and irritated when someone else fails to come up with your expectations. This fire is not seen when you keep failing repeatedly i.e quit smoking, exercise, meditation and whatever!!

This is the power of mind – which belongs to you; but never listens to you. Hmmm btw who are you? Give a thought!

Love & Luck,

Anand

Women in business and home| Don’t mess

nature-3106213_640.jpg

She is ultimate: accept her presence and power

Women’s day is at the corner and everyone is gearing up! With series of events lined up to cheer up the existence of womanhood. Appreciate! Why can’t this respect and cheer be alive forever? The craze will be alive for month and then fade out. Department wise people would be busy to make and come with creative games, themes, workshops and treats. We have also conducted many self-defense workshops on this occasion and would be doing it again. To respect someone it needs courage and specially if its a woman in your team. They bring in energy and enhance the lively environment around you. There are so many organization which have high respect and regards to the women staff. She creates a great deal of difference in a family, institute, organization and nation at large. 

A woman completes you [you=man]! Literally she does! What are you looking for?

However at the same time, there are so many who disrespect them, their brith, their success and their presence. Sometime we need confirmation to ears, to mind and to heart. Ego kills and will destroy you one day. We need the society to be more mature and open minded. Recently I came across a post on The Guardian. It asked its readers for their views and thoughts about what difference a women can make in the economic development? You should definitely read for yourself to believe the importance of investing in women and respecting them. Women and business: the heart of economic value creation.

If the women creates such great value to an organization, think hard and realize how important she is in our society, families and in your own life! 

Appreciate the presence of women around you. Celebrate it every now and then. A day is less to celebrate her…. her greatness, kindness and love. 

Cheers and Love,

Anand

Passion in Everyday Life!

live-511556_640.png

Are you Living your life for real?

Self-Defense – Martial Arts is not so popular as it should be. Is this a case of poor  marketing for Martial Arts or the Self-Defense or human mind-games? Whatever may be the reason; this sport has got tremendous power to change the person in training! There is a long list of Self-Defense courses available. However at this point of time – I would be talking about our program!

The kind of training that is being provided by us [www.anandkoti.com] is unique in its own way. We focus on many areas which are required to make you physically as well psychologically strong. Self-defense is a package of many things, which is required to be learnt by the individual. The posture, form, power, technique, presence of mind, eye-contact and  many more. Dedication is mandatory to master this art. Let me remind you, this is no rocket-science. It’s just how strong your mind is to learn Self-Defense!

Our habit of taking things for granted and being unmindful is the root cause of our self created blockage. Leading to poor time-management, failure to identify the right opportunity, loosing out on best deals and not the least frequent tensions in relationships. Most of us are not enjoying their personal life, maximum time is being spent doing things which are our responsibilities. Is there a passion in your everyday life, ALIVE!!!

We have been working on a possible solution. Since quite sometime and over the years we have developed a special curriculum ‘SELF Confidence Booster’ Module that particularly addresses the most common issues that are surfacing around. i.e stress, confidence, motivation, self-esteem and more. We have a fusion of Karate, meditation, music and the magic of ‘self’. This fusion truly uplifts you with surprise, will bring into your notice the areas that was being neglected by your good self. Until you try for couple of days you can’t understand the difference or positivity felt inside. You can’t even feel it by reading reviews, or blogs or watching YouTube or even reading this article. The gush needs to be real to be felt by the body, mind and soul. You will thereafter start enjoying your life. You will then start living your life, for sure. No matter what you do, you will live for real. 

Don’t learn or train Self-defense with an eye that you might need it! Just learn it because you should know how powerful your empty hands are! You should know your value, you should upgrade yourself with the necessary techniques which would help you succeed in life. This is something that you should include in your life-style.  Online or Offline. Contact us if you need to be trained!

Stay healthy,

Cheers

Balance Mind = Healthy Mind = Happy Soul

coins-1015125_640.jpg

It is all about Balance!

सुख है तोह दुःख है
दिन है तोह रात्रि है
धूप है तोह छाव है
जीवन है तोह मृत्यु है
मानो तोह है वरना नहीं है
 
ईनके बीच ही तोह रहना है
 
अपनालो, जो आता है जैसे आता है
स्थिर करो चंचल मन को
 
क्योंकि हर रात्रि के बाद सुन्हेरा सबेरा है।

Happiness exists so does sadness,
Day exists so does night,
Bright sunlight exists so does shadow,
Life exists so does Death!
If you believe, it is; else its not,
We have to stay among them
Accept whatever comes in whatever form,
Stabilize your flickering mind,
“caz after every night there is a beautiful day!

Balance keeps you stable. Balance keeps the family strong, motivated and in a positive frame of mind. Balance avoids you to fall down while walking/running. Balance lets you do multiple task at a time. Balance helps you solve complex problems. When your body achieves the appropriate balance then it balances your mind. When your mind is balanced then it connects you with your soul. The more you practice, the more connected you are! It’s a daily process, you can’t achieve or feel it if you do it once in a while. The more you are involved and balanced; the more you can feel the difference. For sustaining this earth the Sun has to rise and then has to set. This is the universal law and henceforth the balance is maintained in the environment, which sustains you, me and other living beings.

The same applies on us as well, if we deviate in any direction we would imbalance ourselves. Balanced mind is crucial to help everyone around and to take appropriate decisions. Understand this clearly, at any given point of time; you are not controlling the situation or the happenings around. Your state of happiness or grief is purely based on your attachment to the particular situation/person.

When I say, balance! You need to be in a normal state of expression towards the surroundings. Not too happy nor too sad. This does’t mean that you are supposed to be inhumane or  be heartless. It also does’t mean that you should forget grief or happiness. It’s more about how to respect the happenings around you. Be a witness to the good and bad. Respect them, be a part of it, feel it and at the same time stay composed. Nothing is permanent. If you practice being neutral, you will be able to take appropriate decisions in crucial time. You have to be a leader of your own life. No-one can help you, unless you take the charge. You have the capacity to be happy or sad or depressed. Raise yourself for others and for being a reason to show others the right path.

Attachment is the root cause of pain and agony. Attachment is when you start depending on someone. Their day to day things are more important to you than anything else. You tend to get hurt every time when the person with-whom you are attached is not doing good. This builds up frustration inside you and at some-point of time it irritates the other.. Realize how you are getting confused at a conscious or unconscious level. You are getting trapped in your mind and within your thoughts. You are trying to capture what is not yours! You are trying to have the ownership of someone else’s life. To be free and to have balance; you have to let go on attachments, you have to set free, you have to respect the other individuals and at the same time start focusing on your own-self. You need to love yourself and face your fears. Understand you need to have a balance in life.

You have to evaluate and improve yourself. This is an everyday task [I have recently started working on this.] You have to get better with time. If you are dependent and weak; you are making things very difficult for your ownself and for your loved ones.. Don’t find reasons to justify your situation. Stop being judgmental and look inside yourself. It’s always about your mental health; the moment you are balanced and composed. You will be in a position to handle all the situations gracefully.

I often encourage people around me to learn life lessons from animals and birds. They are someone who can help us learn how to deal life situations. Birds with their beaks make nest for their family, they struggle to find the right set of stalk to make the nest. Tirelessly they put all the efforts. After the egg is laid, the bird protects and then takes care of the hatchling. Tirelessly feeds it and teaches all the required skills for survival. When baby bird is ready to leave the nest. The mother bird leaves them alone and never returns back. They don’t get worried about their nest nor about the hard work they had put in to raise the baby bird.  Its only the pure unconditional love – nature-nurture.

Acceptance is what we need to learn. Every individual has his/her share of up’s and downs. We have to acknowledge, respect, accept and give freedom so that they grow with confidence, with more power and the gap is filled. Give them space to grow and learn their own mechanism. You are the best judge of your situation to understand when and how to have a balance! Learn it and follow it.

Cheers,

Kindness = Heart – Mind

incense-2042096_640.jpg

LOVE IS LIFE

Change is constant and the impact is not seen immediately; with time the impact is seen. One act of kindness everyday will help you withstand all the pressure, stress and tensions of life, job, relationship and the ultimate to sustain your good self.

There is a magical twinkle of doing something good for others. The content that you would receive just by doing one act of kindness will help and protect you from the negative impacts of change. Your emotions would be controlled, your thoughts would be tamed and you would feel happy about yourself.

We, are ruled by our mind. It only puts us in a situation and a condition which never lets us sleep in peace. We are always in pain, bothered, pressurized, jealous and never feel proud about our-self. Kids are an outstanding example of how to live life. They are happy, sad, cry and innocent – but the very next moment they are again happy and enjoy themselves. Kids don’t have ego, its not developed and it doesn’t allow its mind to take control of its life. Kids think from heart, they do everything from their heart and the heart is always pure and unbiased.

Your one act of kindness, touches your heart and this is the place which should be nurtured. Just feel that moment of time; when someone had touched your heart! Stay in that emotion, enjoy it and share this emotions with others who can enjoy the emotions of being loved.

The only truth deep down your heart: is to be loved and to be loved!

Your one act of kindness everyday will help you end your day in style, in content and will protect you. Sounds stupid! Yes, it is! Listen to your heart and let it flow.

Be loved and give love,
For Love,
Cheers.
