How to awaken your spiritual self

“All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.”  -Swami Vivekananda, spiritual leader    The concept of spiritual awakening has been around for centuries. Spiritual awakening happens when you start looking at your life from a new perspective. In simple words, it is a journey of living a life with purpose and meaning and embracing yourself exactly as you are. Spiritual awakening is also called nirvana, enlightenment, or bliss. Often when people grow older, spirituality becomes a very important part of life. As one of the leading senior citizen homes in Bangalore, we share with you a few useful insights on spiritual awakening:    Analyse your beliefs: One of the most important things to do is to be conscious of and intentional about what you believe. Explore your spiritual core and analyse your inner thoughts. Doing this is important to consciously acknowledge your yearnings and  curiosity. Reading spiritual books can help you answer some of the most important spiritual questions such as  Who am I?  What is my purpose?  What do I value most?    Answering these questions will lead you down to a road of self-exploration.    Experience inner peace through meditation: Meditation is one of the most effective spiritual practices you can try whenever and wherever you want. Sitting at one place and focusing on your breath can be a bit difficult at first but with regular meditation sessions it can become a habit. The benefits of meditation practice are numerous. Besides helping you calm down and connect with the supreme being, it has been found that meditation can help reduce stress and anxiety.    Try yoga: Yoga can help improve your spiritual wellness. Yoga involves intense asanas, stretching, and deep breathing which promote mindfulness. Experts suggest that mindfulness can cultivate greater awareness, consciousness, and improved quality of life. Making yoga a part of your lifestyle will foster a stronger relationship with your spiritual wellness.    Connect with community: For different people, spiritual wellness can have different meanings. For some, it can be connecting with others. If you are one of them, you can volunteer at a local charity or attend cultural gatherings to improve your spiritual health.    Want to know more about premium community living for seniors in Bangalore?    Explore our premium senior citizen homes in Bangalore that will help seniors lead a fulfilling retirement life.

Tips to sleep better at night

As people age, they tend to sleep less. Also, they tend to wake up in the middle of the night. This not only causes seniors to feel lethargic during the day, it also increases their stress levels. According to a study, not getting adequate sleep can lead to elevated levels of cortisol in the daytime. As one of the leading senior living communities, we share with you a few useful tips to sleep better at night:  Create a sleep routine: A bedtime routine is a set of activities you can perform every night 30 to 60 minutes before you go to bed. You can perform relaxing activities such as taking a warm bath, reading a book, journaling, or listening to soothing music before bedtime. By performing the same activities in the same order every night, the brain comes to see these activities as a precursor to sleep. This can help you sleep more easily. Also, it is important to sleep and wake up at the same time every day. Minimise exposure to light: For better quality sleep, avoid or minimise the amount of light exposure during sleep. Continuous exposure to light can disrupt the circadian rhythm and make it difficult for you to sleep.  Make sure the room is cool: If you have been struggling to sleep during summer months, maybe the temperature is to blame. Sleep is highly regulated by temperature. Hot temperatures make it harder for the body to cool itself. Use air conditioners and fans to keep the room cool. Draw curtains in the daytime to keep rooms cooler during summers.  Give electronics a break: Many seniors hit the bed with their phones watching their favourite shows or scrolling through social media feeds. Many assume that this will help them sleep but it does the exact opposite. According to a study, the blue light emitted by electronic devices trick the brain into thinking it is  daytime, suppressing melatonin production. This can adversely affect the body’s sleep pattern. For better quality sleep, seniors should avoid electronic devices at least 2 hours before bedtime.  Avoid alcohol and caffeine: Intake of alcohol and caffeine can cause seniors to wake up multiple times, reducing their chances of getting deep REM sleep. It has been found that consumption of alcohol and caffeine within 4 hours of bedtime is associated with increased sleep fragmentation.    Looking for premium community living for seniors in India?  As a leading senior living operator, our retirement homes prioritise overall well-being of our residents.
