Organic Living

Kids live active, stressful lives. They attend school, do homework, participate in competitive sports, play video games, and meet their friends at the mall. In addition, they deal with divorce, new schools, tough neighborhoods, illnesses, bullying, and pressure to get excellent grades...


Editor's Note: Several studies show that children who practice yoga have less stress. This article describes one such students where students learn how to breath their way through difficult situations, how to refocus their thoughts and look at difficult situations differently, how to have better overall health from practicing asanas (poses) as well, and more. This looks like a vialbe alternative/addition to school curriculum. Namaste!

Eighty percent of STRESS illnesses can be managed just with autogenic training...

With the recent spate of mass shootings, people have begun to ask what it will take to reduce violence, especially among kids or in places where they spend time. We know that violence does not just occur in random places sparked by uncertain things. It also takes place daily in schools or on street corners...


Editor's Note: Violence is a result of many things, including mental illness and feelings of loss, anger, loneliness, and powerlessness.
