2 We on 27 th August 2009

3 What is Stress? Stress is a state of Mind and it is a mind- body reaction/response to a situation

4 Why Stress Happens? When a situation/condition is not Acceptable to us When we want to do something but can not When ego is hurt (feedback, comments, criticism…) When we loose something which we feel as important Stress is mostly due to –Fear (of Future) –Worry (about Past) It is always due to the perception of Mind –Different people have different threshold for the same situations

5 What Happens when Stressed? Psychology of Stress: Emotional impact –Anxiety –Fear –Anger –Sadness Physiology of Stress –Acidity Heart ailments –Blood Pressure Diabetes

6 Some Impacts of Sustained and Unmanaged Stress Brain –EEG shows beta activity which is abnormal –Continues to trigger the rest of the body and create stress Blood Pressure remains high –High blood pressures can lead to Heart failure, paralysis –Acidity, Ulcer and other digestive problems Diabetes Reduces immunity and makes body susceptible to diseases

7 Why Allopathic Medicines and Stimulants are not good for managing Stress Allopathic medicines directly add chemical to the body and interfere with the internal chemical factories –E.g. Taking Antacids for Acidity neutralizes the acid in the stomach. Then body thinks that the acid is not sufficient and starts producing more. –E.g. Anti-depressants suppress the ability of brain cells to generate electric impulses People taking such drugs for prolonged time become dull and drug dependant Stimulants like Tobacco, Coffee, Tea, Coco etc. temporarily trigger higher activities –Subsequently body craves for more & more stimulants and later may have withdrawal symptoms

8 how to manage stress? Turn it into a Positive Spiral –Break the negative cycle at each point Some amount of Stress is healthy – it triggers and energizes the system and males you achieve the goals

9 Manage Stress Root Cause: Manage Mind –Positive Thinking and Attitude –Larger view of life –Meditation Build capability to face stressful situations and reduce the impact of stress at physiological level –Yoga –Pranayama Healthy lifestyle and food habits Have multiple positive energy sources –Hobbies, interests …

10 Yogasanas Combine with breathing Postures: Stretch & hold, Compress & hold Creates flexibility and hollowness, lightness Helps in flow of water, food, oxygen, electrical signals and flow of energy in the body Isometric exercises As against Isotonic exercises of aerobics, gym exercises which help to build muscles which reduce the flexibility & become blockers over a period Exercise different parts of the body

11 Pranayama – Bastrika pranayama: i.Increases the removal of carbon dioxide from the blood plasma by creating exhale pressure in lungs for osmosis ii.Increases oxidation and liberation of energy in every cell of the body Air filter analogy in automobiles iii.Stimulates nerve tips in lungs which have connection to the brain area where Pituitary Gland is situated Pituitary Gland is the master gland in the endocrine system and has a strong influence on rest of the endocrine glands

12 Meditation –Takes the brain to Alpha state: electrical impulses of 8 to 14 cycles per second –At deep meditation level brain goes to Theta state: electrical impulses of 4 to 8 cycles per second Leads to deep relaxation Sudarshana Kriya of Art of Living –Takes the brain to higher beta state –Then takes the brain to deep relaxation –Thus exercises and expands the brain/mind capacity

13 Human Body as the Energy System Ancient Indian & Eastern Spiritual Sciences consider it as an Energy System –Universal Cosmic Energy (everything is common at atomic level) –Yoga – union of body, mind and spirit –Raja Yoga – Chakras –Thai Chi, Acupressure, Acupuncture (originated in China) –Homeopathy (Started by Dr. Hahnemann a doctor in Germany during 1800s) Modern Science & Medicine consider human body as merely electro-chemical, electro-mechanical and physical phenomena

14 Chakras: Energy Centers Chakras are situated near the key endocrine glands and nerve groups Wireless connection to brain; Connection to Cosmic universal energy

15 Chakras and Naadis: Wireless Connection to Brain World seen through the 5 sensors (wired connection) is narrow band: gross, inert, matter world World seen through Chakras & Nadis (wireless connection) is broad band: subtle, dynamic, energy world

16 Science of Homeopathy: Medicine of Energy System Basic principle: what causes disease cures the disease also when given in the potenticised form Homeopathic medicine preparation –Potencization through the process of tritration –Transfer of atomic vibrations to the base substance. Not even a single molecule of medicinal material will be present according to Avogadro number Curing principle –Right medicine creates energy vibrations in the human system (resonance principle) –This increase the energy level to improve the health conditions –Typically causes initial aggravation and subsequently cures with oscillations –Cures inside-out: Mind  Emotional level  Physical level Mind & Emotional symptoms are the key for diagnosis

17 So What is “Success”? The definition I liked most: –“The measure of Success is the number of joyful smiles per day every day” – Shri Shri Ravishankar Life is full of choices; The choices one makes determine one’s life – they are like cross-roads Manage Mind –Healthy mind FOR a healthy body –It is mind, and not body, that differentiates the leader from the rest Positive Energy is most fundamental to any Leader

18 The Vicious Cycle People spend half of their life in making money and loose health in that process. In the remaining half they spend that money trying to regain the health Priority 1) Pursue money 2) Pursue fame Loose healthLoose joyLess creativeLess AccomplishmentLess RecognitionLess Money More stress on the priorities

19 Make it a Virtuous Cycle Pursue health (mind+body) and knowledge (universal knowledge) then money & fame will follow as a byproduct Priority 1) Pursue health 2) Pursue knowledge More joyMore creativeMore AccomplishmentMore RecognitionMore Money Continue stress on the priorities

20 Conclusion: The Simple Prescription Practice Yoga & Pranayama everyday * –Life will change at the most fundamental level –Art Of Living workshop is one of the best Combines Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga (Service: Jesus), Bhakti Yoga (Devotion: Narada, Chaitanya…), Jnana Yoga Practical for family & social life, professional life and spiritual life Use Homeopathy for chronic or hereditary health problems to strengthen the positive spiral Become better individuals and better leaders
