From the last 2 weeks in 2021 and first week of Jan 2022, I was sort of experiencing back pain and muscle spasms .
As it the number of cases are peaking I was looking for solutions from an alternative therapy side . I found some useful physiotherapy / yoga exercises that I started practising and thought It would be useful for you folks too!
Remember to consult your doctor / physician before trying out these exercises if there is severe pain or discomfort. Yoga/Physiotherapy is not a cure but a preventive cure to back pain or escalating the muscle from going soar.
Here are some from my archives : All these exercises need to be done on a flat surface with a comfortable yoga mat spread on the floor or ensure the surface is flat on the bed and you are lying on your back . All exercises can be done thrice ( 3 times )
Tail Bone Lifting
Both legs to chest , Alternate leg to chest lift
Both knees spinal twist ( right and left )
Lying on the Stomach exercises:
Right knee to the side for 5 mins
Cat and Camel Stretch
2 pillows under the hips and bend the knee and lift hip
Lie on the stomach and hands behind & lift chest up

I am grateful for the time and energy of several PFSians who gathered to make our recent Sankranti/Pongal/Lohri session engaging, participative, and vibrant with their positive thoughts and perspectives.
I thoroughly enjoyed delivering a talk session on “Mindset Change” at our apartment complex, PFS (aka Purva Fountain Square) in Bangalore. Every weekend, the group meets up to discuss a topic of common interest, debate a new area inspired by a book or incident, or impart learnings from the real world.
During the harvest season, it was especially rewarding to connect with this community and share insights on the power of mindset. Our conversation was both enlightening and enjoyable.
Attached is a photo of the event. Thanks again to all who attended!
The topic was inspired from the book- ‘Who Moved my cheese?’ a book written by Spencer Johnson and apparently must have been shared multiple times as key learning material for several entrepreneurs and corporate professionals to discuss the Impact of Changes in our lives.

Here are some suggested revisions to improve the readability, grammar, and SEO keywords of your text:
Introduction: In the session, we discussed the main concepts from the book and highlighted its key takeaways. We explored how the book relates to change and adaptability in both personal and professional contexts.
Real-life examples: During the session, participants shared real-life examples of their experiences adapting to change in their roles, companies, or individual capacities. We discussed the lessons learned from these examples.
Interactive exercises: To help participants experience the emotions and challenges of dealing with change, we used props and interactive exercises during the session.
Attitude and mindsets: The group also explored their own attitudes and mindsets towards change, reflecting on how they can be more adaptable and embrace change.
Self-reflection: This session was also used as a self-reflection time for participants to ponder on their next best alternatives and possibilities for their own “cheese stations” (referring to the book’s metaphor of “cheese” as a metaphor for what people want in life).
Conclusion: We emphasized how the session can help participants understand the importance of being adaptable and embracing change in order to thrive in today’s fast-paced, volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world.
These are the key lessons from the book :

Question : How do you see change? What has been your experience with managing change ?
The Digital Influence program had been launched in February 2010, after almost eight months of planning. Seventy-five software subject matter experts (SMEs) were selected to help the firm achieve its desired objectives.
On August 16, 2011, in dialogue with Roshni Sengupta, Digital Strategy and Marketing manager, IBM Software Group, India/South Asia, (see Exhibit 1), Bajaj asserted that IBM’s achievements, though commendable in such a short time, were not unexpected.
However, the objectives of the digital influence strategy—an increase in brand perception and the creation of technology evangelists— remained to be achieved.
Within a year, in 2011, share of reach for all the brands had improved substantially. Lotus had the maximum rate of increase at 1,933 per cent, followed by Information Management (IM) with 421.8 per cent.
Although the percentage increase was as per the projections, Bajaj was hesitant about declaring victory at this point.Was the model sustainable? What challenges did IBM face in the implementation process? Would the current plan of operations help IBM gain market space and create technical evangelists?

Creating a sacred space for your soul power retrieval
Imagine if there is a space in your heart to retrieve your souls vibrational essence or signature power – what could that power be?
Many of us know that we are spiritual beings in a human form , so it is obvious that we have a signature spiritual blueprint of the divine within us!
It is all waiting to sprout and bloom within us and it is upto our own choice and intention that we allow ourselves to realize our own ‘Beingness’ potential.
What difference would that make in the way you live your life and, in particular, the way you see your major life challenges? That new perspective could shift your entire life — for the better. – Rob Schwartz
As our soul is made up of flesh and blood its connected to the five elements or ‘Panchamahabhootas’ namely – Fire, Water, Earth, Ether and Air .
We can do a small invocation prayer to the five elements and pray to these elements to take us into their space that has infinite potential and infinite power to help you express yourself in the truest and most authentic way in this lifetime.
The inner guidance given to me at this point in time is to first create a space that helps you connect to that power and potential in your heart.And you can define the imagery or visualise a form that is best suited for you to grow and develop yourself. This the masters or the light council call it your divine blueprint or sacred innerspace that can manifest in the outer space.
You can make it as beautiful and serene and add play and color to your imagination and bring to life the characters and roles that you might be playing if you were to be in that most authentic version of “U”.
This photograph reminded me of the vision that I had long back about my life’s blueprint and I invite you to envision yours! Let me know how it goes for you!

“When I started leading mandala art workshops in the corporate world, I questioned whether it would be effective and what value I could offer to participants in terms of fostering joy and happiness.
Today, I achieved one of my bucket list goals: conducting a workshop with the world’s largest search platform (which was a no-brainer, in my opinion!). The workshop focused on promoting well-being and mindfulness for the company’s India team.
Despite their busy schedules, more than 15 participants took 60 minutes to dive deep and ‘search inside themselves.’ As a result, they found creativity, concentration, focus, and inner peace. This workshop was a collaboration with Ozone Inc.
I’d like to express my gratitude to @ozone_inc for the opportunity.
Through serving audiences and witnessing their ‘Aha’ moments, I discovered that my true purpose is to bring joy into their lives.
What is your soul’s true calling or purpose? What are you currently doing to pursue it?”
The law of attraction is, in some ways, similar to the power of positive thinking. You must think positive thoughts and try to eliminate negative thoughts in order for it to work.
However, instead of working solely based on thinking positive thoughts, it requires you to actually imagine yourself as already having whatever it is you desire.
With the power of positive thinking you would say, “I know I can become wealthy.” With the law of attraction, you would close your eyes and imagine what your life would be like if you were already wealthy. You would picture yourself living in the home of your dreams, taking the vacation you’ve always wanted, or owning everything you’ve always hoped to own.
There are two theories as to why this may work. One group says there are magnetic forces all around us. If you think positive thoughts, you attract things to you like a magnet. If you think negative thoughts, you repel them – pushing them further and further away.
The other group claims that the theory is good in principle, but only because it works on the same principle as the power of positive thinking. If you think positive thoughts, good things naturally happen.
If you’re skeptical about the theories regarding mystical energy flows and magnets, it’s understandable. Many people have a hard time grasping the concept, and for those people, it can sometimes hinder their use of the methods.
However, you don’t have to believe in the mystical side of it to actually take advantage of the techniques. Like the power of positive thinking, the law of attraction can work simply by helping you turn negative thoughts into positive ones.
Let’s say you lost your job and now you are homeless. Most people who are homeless are constantly thinking negative thoughts. It’s natural. Most people in a situation that bad would feel negative.
They think things like:
“This sucks. I will be homeless forever!”
“Man, why is everyone else warm and cozy in a home, and I’m freezing on the streets?”
Those are negative thoughts. They put that person into a constant state of depression. When you are depressed and angry, it’s hard to get anything done. How can you change your situation when you feel hopeless? You can’t. Unless you change your thinking, you’re stuck!
However, if that person would spend some time each day imagining themselves with a good job they really enjoyed, living in a lovely home, their bills paid and food on the table, they would probably feel a little more hope. In fact, the more often they pictured it, the more real it would become to them.
Once their brain finally began to see that situation as “possible”, they would probably become passionate about making it happen. Because their brain finally believes it really is possible to have that kind of life again, they can shift out of their negative mode and into a positive one.
Someone who is depressed and negative cannot function well. Many people who are severely depressed cannot even get out of bed! But when you begin to picture yourself in a better position and your brain begins to believe it could happen, you will work much harder to make it happen.
I don’t know which group is right. What I do know is that the law of attraction certainly does work. Whether there are invisible energy forces at work, or just good old fashioned brain training, the law of attraction can make a difference in your life!

What they need and they should be doing to be fit and healthy at any age? There are hundreds and thousands of articles, books, media sources and materials available in the world that tell us how to stay healthy. How many of us have time to research, read and scour this multitude of information? Further, how do we trust all the information available out there? This article has done all the work for you. Of course, not every tip or piece of worldly advice can be put on these few pages but the most important information is here. Keep a copy and hand this out to all the women you know, it is for every female aged 1-100.
From age 1-10
Young women undergo many changes during this time, and it’s important to focus on their health. Here are some tips for women aged 11-20:
Get enough nutrition and vitamins to ensure healthy development.
Exercise regularly to maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of diseases.
Make sure to have regular check-ups with a gynecologist for reproductive health.
Perform self-breast exams and get a mammogram at age 39.
This age group is often busy with careers and/or having children, and it’s easy to neglect personal health. Here are some tips to stay healthy:
Eat healthy, balanced meals and watch portion sizes.
Exercise regularly to maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of diseases.
Take a daily multivitamin and other supplements such as calcium, Fish Oil, Vitamin C, and folic acid to prevent birth defects and maintain overall health.
Find a spiritual path or connection to maintain mental health and wellbeing.
i Eat healthy foods. Avoiding unhealthy fats and consuming raw fruits and vegetables go a long way in staying nutritionally stable. ii Watch your dieting habits. While there are many diet plans out there, the simplest is almost always more effective. Watching portion size and the ingredients (fat, calories and sugar) in foods will often net the best weight loss results. It is wise to note that losing or maintaining your desired weight means one thing, there needs to be more calories burned than what has been consumed. This can be accomplished with: iii Exercise. Whether you are a regular attendee at the local gym or you workout at home, there are certain types of exercise that will benefit you the most. One exercise routine must raise your heart rate (cardiovascular health). Another should include free-weights or weight lifting in some form (bone health and strengthening). Additionally, walking, dancing and swimming can tone the body. Weight loss in pounds alone will make you happy when you step on the scales but most women want that loose skin (abdomen, underarms, and thighs) to tighten up as well. If you just can’t find the time to exercise, try these activities: iv Park in the last open parking space far away from the storefront and walk. v At home, grab some large juice bottles that have the indented areas for carrying or milk jugs and do some curls. vi Take the stairs instead of elevators in public places vii Take a stroll through your neighbourhood every night after dinner viii Visit your gynaecologist every year for a PAP test (more often if your doctor suggests or your last one came back with an abnormal result). PAP tests are essential towards maintaining a healthy reproductive system. They are used to detect cervical cancer and infections among other things. x Perform your own self-breast exams. xi Make an appointment at age 39 for your first mammogram. xii Take regular multi vitamins every day. Add other supplements including calcium, Fish Oil and Vitamin C. Do some research on the types and amounts of vitamins and/or supplements you could be taking. I found vitanetonline.com to be very helpful for this kind of information. Also, it has been found that women in these childbearing years are lacking in the amount of folic acid they need. Insufficient amounts of folic acid have been linked to birth defects of the brain in newborns. These birth defects can be avoided if a woman takes sufficient amounts of folic acid before she conceives and during the early, first trimester of pregnancy. xiii Not least of all, are these tips to good health that most informational sources rarely mention. xiv Find a spiritual path or connection. These are highly personal so I won’t offer any suggestions. Women have chosen a religion, nature, prayer, rituals, a quiet room and many others to find that place within self where they can be at peace. xv Keep your mental health a priority. Talk to a professional therapist if you need some guidance or direction. xvi Avoid unhealthy relationships. If you are being abused in any manner by anyone, seek help
While all these tips for the age 20-39 group will keep a woman in optimum health, most of these need to be implemented and continued into the later years as well.
These are the years that many women claim that they become wiser. Some even claim that it is the best time of life they ever experienced. The tips for the 20-39 age groups hold true for women beyond 40; some exceptions would include the advice on folic acid intake, the amount of weight carried in the free-weight exercise routines, the limitations of exercise that may create falls, accidents or injuries and the PAP tests. Regular PAP test examinations usually ceases around 80 years of age but ask your doctor first.
From ages 40-50 a woman can expect pre-menopausal symptoms. Again, the changes that occur in any woman’s life can never be set at a certain age. There are women that may never have any disrupting symptoms of menopause. Other women may begin menopause at age 40 others might be near 50. Some women may become post-menopausal at age 45 and others at age 52-55. No matter what the age of onset or completion, menopause happens. Be sure to talk to your doctor about remedies for the symptoms of menopause. There are hormone replacement therapies (HRT) as well as some natural supplements to ease menopause. Taking soy isoflavones, in capsule form, have recently been regarded by some women as helpful in decreasing their hot flashes.
While awareness of the importance of calcium and its consumption should be well established by age 15, many older women still don’t find it a concern. Osteoporosis (bone weakness) can begin to occur as early as age 35. By the time you get into this age group of 40+ and you haven’t been caring for your calcium needs, you might expect by age 60 to see the results in your body. We have all seen the women with humps below their neck at the spine. We have seen the stooped walks and heard of women in this age group having falls that break their hips and other bone structures. This is a result of weak bones. There are also hereditary factors that play into whether or not we get osteoporosis. Take your calcium !
1. Keep exercising but know your limitations 2. Continue getting mammograms 3. Keep eating healthy. If you like gardening, that’s light exercise and you can eat healthy too. 4. Stay socially active
Women are living longer. We are living longer because the importance of diet, exercise, vitamin and supplement intakes and other information has become easily available. But living longer is not necessarily a good thing if the QUALITY of our lives is not taken into account.
If you follow these tips and commit yourself to making healthy lifestyle choices then all your years can be filled with happiness, peace and good health.
