Yoga and Yogis Lifestyle

You have a very busy schedule, work hard and take care of your family as well as meet your schedule. Then you wake up on the morning and need several cups of coffee to wake up. Sound familiar? We all look for a new and exciting way to make ourselves healthier and live a natural lifestyle. Yoga offers the view of the body and mind being one where you can find the harmony in your life. The benefits to the Yoga lifestyle are feeling better, more active, happier and serene.

Biological Profits

Let’s look at the biological profits of the yoga lifestyle. In today’s busy work and home environment you have stressful environments. Due to these environments you may have the following.

High pulse rates

High blood pressure

Gastrointestinal malfunctions

Bad eye and hand coordination

No grip strength

Flexibility in joints

These are all results of the body taking stress and delivering them to you in a way that may be subtle but impedes your ability to perform the basic functions in a day. Although Yoga can be performed in many forms, poses, practices, exercises, and meditation it is a way to produce peace and harmony to your body and mind.

Yoga has been done for what is believed to be thousands of years. Many cultures have used the system and performed wonders without medication to live long and fruitful lives. Although Yoga did not originate in countries such as the United States it is well-practiced. Yogis in the United States practice mostly poses, called asanas. The other main practice in the west is meditation and breathing techniques which are great forms of relaxation. These are also coupled with ways to move and stretch your body in new ways developing your flexibility, balance and strength.

See a Doctor First

For most people entering in the Yoga lifestyle it is a safe non-aerobic method of exercise however is not without risks. You should consult a physician before you start any form of lifestyle change. Many professionals, such as the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, state that most of the injuries from Yoga include over-stretching and strain to joints and muscles. So seeing a physician before entering a Yoga lifestyle is highly recommended.

Stress in Your Life

If you are looking to relieve stress in your life Yoga is an excellent choice. A form of Yoga known as Hatha Yoga is a great choice for stress management and is a very common form of Yoga. It is also highly recommended for beginners due to its slow pace and easier movements which is a great place to start since we can all get rid of some stress.

If you want to pursue even a small form of Yoga I suggest you search for terms such as Yoga reviews, training, and meditation. There are many sincere blogs and websites which offer valued information for the beginner and expert to excel at peace of mind and body.

Optimizing Your Video for SEO

If you’ve spent some time researching how to market your business online, you’ve probably heard about video marketing. And maybe you’ve even gotten so far as to create one or two videos and uploaded them to YouTube. But creating and uploading a video are only a small part of video marketing. Before you even upload that video, you need to be thinking about how to best optimize your video so that it will be seen by more people.

Here’s some quick tips to keep in mind to make your video more visible on YouTube.

Of course, the number one tip I can give you is to create a quality video, one that is interesting, informational, and will catch people’s attention. If your video is all promotion, isn’t well put together, doesn’t engage people, it won’t matter how much you optimize. You’re just not going to get good results.

Before you start filling in your title, description, tags, etc. – you need to do some keyword research to find keywords that people are searching for on YouTube. I recommend you use the YouTube keyword analyzer found at YouTube, because when you use keyword research tools like WordTracker or Market Samurai, you’re not going to get accurate information that’s relevant to YouTube searches. Once you’ve done your research, take the keywords you find and include them in the title, description and tags for your video, which will help increase the visibility (views) of your video.

If you don’t know where to start your keyword research, here’s another tip. Search for videos related to the topic of your video and see what tags are used in the top videos that come up. This will give you some good keywords and keyword phrases to get you started.

Once you’ve gotten your keywords down, you’ll want to use those appropriately when uploading your video to YouTube.

Your video’s title and description.
This is one of the most overlooked ways to getting traffic to your video. Your title needs to contain a good keyword phrase which will also fit within the limits YouTube sets for the length of your title.

One simple way many people don’t think of to get people back to your website from your video, is to always begin the “description” of your video with the full URL ( This way people can click directly to your website from the description. Make it simple and easy to get even more people to click over to where you really want them – on your website. And again, after the URL, be sure to use your keywords in the rest of your description.

You want to set up highly searched and relevant keywords as tags for the videos you upload. By using the right tags, your video is more likely to come up as an associated video. What this means is that when someone is watching another video, your video can then show up as one of those related videos that come up on the right side of your screen. By making sure your video has the right tags to show up next to similar videos, you can get even more people to see your video.

Inbound Links/Embeds
With YouTube, when someone embeds your video, it counts as an inbound link. If you know anything about SEO, you know that inbound links can really bump up your SEO power. So by getting more people and more websites to not only link to your video, but also to embed it, your video will rank higher in search engine results, again increasing how many people see that video. So you want to be sure you not only let people know about your video, but that you also ask people to link back to it and to embed it. You can help with the inbound links yourself by making sure you embed your own video on your Facebook profile, Facebook business page, Twitter, your website, your blog and anywhere else you can think of.

Ratings & Comments
The better ratings and more comments your video has, the more people are likely to view it. So again, proactively work on getting people to interact with your video. The number one way to do this is like I mentioned earlier – making quality, impactful, informational videos. But you can go even further with this, by reminding your blog readers, your Facebook friends and fans, your Twitter followers, and anyone else you’re connected with, to not only view your video – but to take it a step further, and rate it and comment on it.

By taking into account the many different ways you can actively impact how many people view your video, you’ll take your video marketing to a whole other level that many small business owners don’t even think about.

Who Could Use a Part Time Work From Home Job?

As you sift through various opportunities on the web you might notice several part time work from home opportunities or jobs available. It might seem a little out of place but for many people this is the perfect solution for bringing in a little extra money week after week. Working part time from home doesn’t mean you aren’t working hard. It only means that you are working fewer than 40 hours a week. This is great for many people who want to make a little extra money but do not want the hassles or the hours a full time position would require.Who needs Part Time Work from Home?1) Stay at home moms with children in school. Many stay at home moms know that a full time job is just not in the cards but would love to work to bring in a little additional income during the work week. Whether this is just fun money for the family or they need to support lost income due to the current state of the economy, a part time work at home job leaves them free to be at home (in case needed for sick school children) during the day but also bringing home a little extra money for the household budget during that time as well.2) College students. Not all college students have easy transportation to get to and from work day after day. Many of them may have little extra time to commute to a job downtown or even several miles away. Part time work that they can do from home or the comfort of a dorm room might be the perfect choice.3) Professionals who have been recently unemployed. You might know that you don’t want to work from home for good. You want to invest time every day to your job search efforts. Unfortunately you need to start bringing in money to contribute to the family budget right away. Working from home on a part time basis allows you to continue your efforts to find a job but also allows you to generate some income while you wait.4) Retired people looking to supplement retirement incomes. Many people have found themselves faced with the reality of more bills than money at the end of the month upon retiring. This leaves them without the comfortable retirement they had planned on and facing the possibility of going back out into the work force. Not all of them need a full time income and many of them would rather not get out and drive to and from work each day. This makes a part time work from home job very attractive as it eliminates the need for commuting in all kinds of weather while providing a modest income that will help them make ends meet month after month.Sincere RegardsWilliam StreetMoments of Grace articles
