Ashwagandha for Stress Relief, Weight Loss & Wellness
Ashwagandha is an ancient Ayurvedic healing herb that has been used for centuries to heal a wide variety of conditions. This powerful herb is best known for its restorative benefits. In the Sanskrit language, Ashwagandha translates to “the smell of a horse”. This translation indicates that the herb conveys the agility and strength of a stallion. Traditionally, this herb has been administered to people to help them strengthen their immune systems following an illness.
This herb belongs to the same family as the tomato plant does. It bears red fruit that is close to the size of a raisin, which grows inside of its yellow oval-shaped leaves and flowers. The Ashwagandha plant can be found in drier regions of India, the Middle East, and Northern Africa. Today, you can also find it going in milder climates, including some places across the United States.
There are many applications of Ashwagandha in the modern world. It is still used to boost and strengthen immune systems, but can also be used for a variety of other reasons. If you tend to struggle with symptoms such as stress, fatigue, lack of energy, or difficulty concentrating, adding Ashwagandha to your diet can help alleviate these symptoms and refresh your sense of wellbeing.

Creating a Balanced Lifestyle with Yoga (Yoga Motivation and Success)
A lot of people today have become health-conscious. With the many activities one does daily, from home to work, keeping one’s health in tip-top shape can be a challenge. This, of course, is not limited to one’s physical fitness. It also includes their mental and spiritual fitness. People try to keep these three aspects in optimum condition and strive to balance them properly. One way that most people are able to succeed in balancing physical, mental, and spiritual needs is through yoga. Since I recommend yoga and meditation as one of “wellness tools” in my book “Holistic Relaxation” I decided to create a short blog post dedicated to yoga, or to be more precise, to yoga motivation.
