Yoga: The Best Way to Manage Your Stress

Stress can grow to high levels and slowly devour your health bit by bit. Many young people are nowadays a victim of this damaging condition. People belonging to all major occupations are going through stress of various kinds in their life. In this article, we will be looking into what exactly causes stress and how you can cure it naturally through the use of Yoga. However, before we hit upon the subject of dealing with stress with yoga, it's important to clearly understand what exactly stress is and how it impacts our life.

Stress is nothing but a mental pressure created due to excessive work or fatigue of any kind. Another major cause for stress is by thinking heavily about the past, present or future or even worrying about work. For example, a businessman who exports his products to different countries might go through a number of ups and downs in business, many of which are short lived. However, this leads him to develop a large amount of stress that can eventually lead to severe problems to his mental health.

In today's world, we go through stress in every part of our life, whether it's offices, schools, colleges or any place where there is a pressure to perform and give results. Students tend to face stress during exam times, 9-5 workers face the stress because of the pending work that needs to be done on time etc. This generally results in people consuming medications such as narcotics, sedatives and tranquilizers (which cure anxiety). Such medicines may calm the mind of a person but when taken on a long-term basis, they can give rise to other serious maladies.

Given all this, there is still a way to naturally combat stress and can be called a lethal weapon against this disorder - yes, I'm talking about yoga. Yoga is the ancient practice that can give you good health and help you rejuvenate your inner self to a high extent. It has been practiced over time by many experienced yogis in ancient India and now has turned out to be a major health revolution in the modern age.

Coming back to stress management, yoga gives you a unique way to manage stress through the use of controlled breathing, which is called Prayanama. During this technique a person breathes in a slow and steady manner, like inhaling through one of this nostrils and exhaling through the other. Besides this, there are also fast paced breathing techniques, like inhaling air via the nostrils and exhaling it through the mouth. Doing this makes sure that the air is passed through the blood capillaries properly and the practitioner himself feels lighter, meaning he or she feels that there is absolutely no burden on their soul or mind.

Finally, Yoga has proved to be the best stress management tool that's natural without any side effects. The western world is adopting it fast for a reason and that is getting the most of your inner self, while avoiding the use of offensive allopathic drugs that do long term damage. Make a wise decision today, and start on your road to a better, healthier well-being.

What's next for Microsoft?

In the past few weeks there has been speculation that Microsoft will be releasing the Windows 7 OS completely new from scratch. Microsoft has rejected these claims.

It seems they are heading in a different direction. While keeping Windows 7 on the old platform they are working on another project called “Midori". Sources say it's in “incubation," which means it's on a fast track to being turned into a product.

Does this mean that “Midori" will replace the Windows platform any time soon? No. If and when Microsoft does make this project into a commercial product, it will run parallel or alongside Windows for several years.

Why? Well looking back at history, in 1993 Microsoft came out with Windows NT. NT was abbreviated from New Technology and for almost for a decade Microsoft built and ran the consumer OS and business OS (Windows NT) in parallel. In 2001 when Windows XP was launched the old line (consumer OS) was stopped and the “New Technology" was made mainstream for all Windows users.

It took a while before Windows NT was considered acceptable for desktop use and it took even longer before Windows 2000 achieved widespread acceptance by users. In that time Microsoft kept on shipping millions of Windows licenses using its “old technology" OS.

So Midori has the potential to coexist alongside Vista, Server 2008 and Windows 7 for at least 5 years. Just like with NT there will be customers willing to use the new OS for specialized reasons such as a powerful workstation or personalized hub for home entertainment.

It is unlikely that the new platform will achieve any critical mass until the early adopters have used it for years and identified the shortfalls. It is also unlikely that retailers will want to accept the burden of selling and supporting a completely new platform until early adopters give it the seal of approval.

Computer viruses are small software programs that are designed to spread from one computer to another and to interfere with computer operation.

A virus might corrupt or delete data on your computer, use your e-mail program to spread itself to other computers, or even erase everything on your hard disk.

Viruses are often spread by attachments in e-mail messages or instant messaging messages. That is why it is essential that you never open e-mail attachments unless you know who it's from and you are expecting it.

Viruses can be disguised as attachments of funny images, greeting cards, or audio and video files.

Viruses also spread through downloads on the Internet. They can be hidden in illicit software or other files or programs you might download.

To help avoid viruses, it's essential that you keep your computer current with the latest updates and antivirus tools, stay informed about recent threats, and that you follow a few basic rules when you surf the Internet, download files, and open attachments.

Once a virus is on your computer, its type or the method it used to get there is not as important as removing it and preventing further infection.
