Live each day as if tomorrow is uncertain—because it is.

All you have is right here on front of you. Stop waiting for better days. Don’t hold back. Walk this earth with bare feet and eyes wide open – beauty is all around. Don’t blink… It might pass you by. Love wildly, passionately, without caution. Let the joy of being alive fill you to the tips of your fingers and your toes. Dance to the rhythm of your heart.

Be free.

About Rachel Brathen

Rachel is a yogi on a world tour. Born and raised in Sweden, she currently resides in the beautiful island of Aruba where she is busy teaching yoga at a resort in the mornings, coordinating retreats at noon, taking her three somewhat crazy dogs to the beach to keep up with the surf in the afternoon and trying to survive as a vegan (where no vegetables grow!) in the evenings. She firmly believes that life is not black or white – it’s black and white and blue and yellow with rays of pink and sparkle in between. You can teach yoga and still be a party animal. Meditate and ignore your spending problems. Be vegan and eat too much chocolate. Have a Swedish passport and live in the Caribbean. You can do anything, as long as it’s you! You can find Rachel on the beach, probably practicing her Astavakrasana, or on

    Yoga helps people regain their inner balance via meditation and there is an impressive number of people practicing it. But, as this helps as a remedy to relax, there are some other things that work just as fine as this one, too. There are people yachting a lot. This may be quite an expensive hobby at times, but nothing compares to the days when discount marine parts are on sale.

    This is actually a noble initiative coming from such a big music star, practically a legend. And this is how, apparently, legends teach us a lesson about how to love music above the material perspective of it. This is why people must love too, because they basically do the same thing.

    Based on the premise that inner balance, mental health and a good mood are the most important aspects people should take care, recreational activities are also very important in one`s lifestyle. Reviews on have shown the benefits of having golf as a hobby from an overall point of view. Of course, it depends on preference and taste, others may choose another sport or activity. The important thing is to invest time in one`s hobbies.

    Communities that encourage practicing sports and acknowledging the importance of sports supplies like are the communities who host the healthiest and the happiest people. Once and for all, people must raise awareness that sedentary life has nothing good to bring along on a long term.

    Alternative health care methods are the safest ways to keep everyone away from Santiam Hospital, but everybody knows, however, that this is the safest place when it comes to traditional medical practice and interventions.

  7. greenfog says:

    Sports events gather people from all across the country or even from abroad, sometimes. The Harvest Fest 1/2 marathon in Lake Michigan was a success this year, as people stayed around for like a week, to know these places better.

    A healthy mind is the perfect setup for a healthy body. Even the doctors from sometimes notice severe dentition problems in people that are apparently in a good general health state. This is why the pure health comes from within, and yoga is the utmost practice to make this happen.

    From all forms of entertainment, some people may choose pure fun, festivals, parties, wedding sparklers, cruises, holidays. Whereas others may choose spiritual paths like yoga, that would guarantee them peace of mind and total relaxation.

  10. fred09red says:

    Some may go to take yoga classes from experts, others may choose to travel all across the country, just to be in a comedy club in Medford, OR for the big show. People have an unlimited freedom of choice when it comes to what makes them happy. Entertaining methods are everywhere.

    Sportsmen usually practice yoga as a morale booster, to keep them in the game from a mindset point of view. Judging from this perspective, yoga is indeed necessary for them. One sees all those athletes, equipped in professional items, on the field and can`t help at not wondering where all that self-confidence and inner balance come from. Well, yoga would be one of the answers.
