Meditation – The Perfect Aide to a Weight Loss Program

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 68% of Americans are overweight, and more than a third are obese. That is a lot of people who are potentially looking for solutions to lose weight and get fitter.

  • Having obesity increases the risk of severe illness from COVID-19. People who are overweight may also be at increased risk.
  • Having obesity may triple the risk of hospitalization due to a COVID-19 infection

Meditation scores heavily in subtler areas along with scientifically backed research supporting its role in the primary weight loss facets or levers. It can be the central guiding force that makes a weight loss program successful.

Let’s see how.

Dealing with colds and the flu season

Today I’ll start off a little bit about meditation and how it can help with colds and allergies but then move on to share my learnings and experiences on effective ways to deal with winter colds and the flu season. While there are so many different solutions and remedies, I’ve listed some of the most potent remedies which have worked very well for me.
