All You Should Know About Glaucoma: Risk Factors and Testing!

Posted on

If it is diagnosed soon, glaucoma can be taken care of to avoid greater decline in eyesight or sight loss. Although, because they are experienced in a gradual manner, the indications of glaucoma can be hard to spot without a test carried out by an eye doctor. If glaucoma hits a late phase without being diagnosed, it may cause severe vision loss.
Glaucoma results from damage to the optic nerve, caused by a boost of fluid pressure in the eye or a problem in the optic nerve itself.
The eye requires a specific amount of pressure to permit the eye to maintain its shape, because it is made up of liquid, called aqueous humour. In a strong eye, this liquid moves throughout the eyeball at a consistent pace. If the drainage tubes which carry the liquid away from the eyeball become clogged, strain starts to develop within the eye. This increase in pressure can cause harm to the optic nerve.
Specific characteristics make an individual more disposed to having glaucoma:
– The main consideration is age. The older someone becomes, the greater the chance of glaucoma developing.
– Someone suffering from short-sightedness or myopia also has a greater chance to … Read the rest

Positive Psychology in Yoga Posture Practice

Posted on

Positive psychology is a new paradigm in the fields of psychology and sociology. This branch of psychology differs from traditional approaches to psychology because it emphasizes what is going right in an individual’s life, instead of what is going wrong. In other words, there is a strong emphasis on the cup being half-full, instead of half-empty. The “cup,” in this case, may represent a client’s health, a student’s skill and talent in a particular field of study, or the strong points of a practitioner’s Yoga practice. Two of the core elements of positive psychology are mindful awareness and a sense of flow. The application and practice of these positive psychological principals, both “on and off the mat,” can have a profoundly uplifting effect on a Yoga practitioner.
Mindful awareness is essentially the ability to be completely present in the moment without anxiety, expectation, or any attachment to the outcome. This practice can be similar to walking the proverbial razor’s edge. In order to mindfully move through the asana segment of your Yoga session, it is necessary to practice the postures without any kind of story attached to your momentary ability to practice a variety of asanas, on any specific day. … Read the rest
