    Yes, You Have Impact

    I believe each of us has impact on ALL those people we meet on a daily basis. Does that mean we can control ALL the people we meet? Not at all, but we do have impact. If a stranger opens a door for us to pass and we hurry through without acknowledging their kind act, […]

    Nadi Shodhana and HappyNow…

    How do you feel? Right now, how do you feel? Tired? Excited? Happy? Worried? It’s all about energy. When we are in a restless energetic state, we become manic, agitated and stressed.
