Headaches can be caused by eyestrain, indigestion, allergies, sinusitis, exhaustion or poor posture. Types of headaches vary according to the cause and so do the remedies. Migraines and cluster headaches can be helped with yoga. To learn more check out this week's article on Yoga for headache management.

Tennis is not only a fun sport, but also a great way to exercise. You do not have to be a Venus Williams to play; in fact, you do not even have to be good. Just running after the ball alone will help get you into shape. This is a great way to strengthen your cardiovascular system and lose weight. You can find tennis courts in just about every city and if you would like to play but have no idea how, lessons are reasonable.



Believe in your dreams!

A winner is neither made nor finished in one try

This holds true except under one circumstance. That is as long as we don't give up or never try. There have been a number of situations where persistence has won out. Remember, there is no rule that says we have to already be an expert before moving towards our dreams.

Life will show us the way towards achievement if we only allow ourselves to remain focused on that which we want to see manifest in our lives.

Believe in the power of your dreams even if no one else does because when you make them a reality it won't matter who doubted you.
