The practice of meditation gives the psychological edge necessary to remain calm and non-reactive under challenging situations. Its daily practice creates the clarity for greater self-control needed to overcome behavioral addictions.
Although each meditation has specific benefits, the application is all-encompassing. Some added benefits of its practice are discipline, peace of mind, self esteem and a greater awareness or higher consciousness.

Conscious breathing is an important part of living. Increased breath capacity developed through long deep breathing exercises carries more oxygen to the brain, which in turn helps to create a heightened sense of awareness.
Science has shown that conscious controlled breathing can also elevate your mood, create relaxation and shield you from the effects of stress, aid in pain control, and alleviate a wide range of symptoms like headaches or indigestion.
The most beneficial way of breathing is to inhale completely by filling your lungs with the breath and then exhale and completely empty them. By intentionally focusing attention on your breath, you are practicing conscious breathing.
By changing the rhythm and depth of your breath one can begin to change addictive behavioral patterns.
In today’s modern times of behavioral addictions, the sacred science of Kundalini Yoga and meditation brings solutions for the concerns and problems of our modern world.
