Yoga and High Blood Pressure

Have  a read of this article recently published in the Mail on-line …. 7 in 10 adults suffer from high blood pressure.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2100747/Seven-British-adults-high-blood-pressure.html

Of course there are many causes, but leading a healthy lifestyle – incorporating yoga that triggers the parasymathetic nervous system and reduces blood pressure – could be a good idea.

Time

Love this wonderful poem by W H Davies .. take a moment to read it ….. and then breathe ….

What is this life if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad day light,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
