Today’s Holiday: Birthday of Guru Har Krishan

Today’s Holiday:
Birthday of Guru Har Krishan

Har Krishan (1656-64) was the eighth of the ten Sikh gurus or prophets on whose teaching the religion is based. He is often referred to as the “Child Guru” because he was only five years old when he succeeded his father, Guru Har Rai, who died in 1661. Har Krishan himself died of smallpox at the age of eight, so he remained a child throughout his brief time as guru. The anniversary of his birth is celebrated by Sikhs around the world with special services in the gurdwaras (houses of worship) and with readings from the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh scriptures.

Article of the Day:
John Dowland

Dowland was an English composer who was unsurpassed in his day as a lutenist. Refused a court position in 1594 and believing his adoptive Catholicism to have been the cause, he left for the Continent and took a position at the Danish court. Having made a name for himself in the music world, he was finally appointed lutenist to the English court in 1612. He published three collections of songs, including about 90 works for solo lute and some 80 lute songs. Why do some suspect that he was a spy?

This 3-Minute Exercise Will Actually Fix Your Posture

Now that we’re all settled into the new year, it may be time to address an issue that many of us have but tend to ignore: our posture. This issue is especially important for those of us who sit at the computer all day, whether for work, study, or leisure.

What many people don’t realize is that sitting up straight is actually bad for you, mainly because it puts stress on your spine. What’s even worse is that bad posture can lead to trouble falling asleep and “forward head carriage” (also known as a hunchback).

Fortunately, the 3-minute exercise in the video above is an easy and pain-free way to rectify the problem. Believe me, I tried it… and immediately stood up straighter, felt better, and had more confidence. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but it really does work.

Do note that even though the exercise has immediate results, they are temporary. In order to undo years of bad posture, you’ll have to do this exercise twice a day — once in the morning, once at night — for about a month. Only then will you start to reap longer-term results.

One last thing: this should NOT be seen as a remedy for actual spinal problems. Do not misconstrue this exercise, video, or article as medical advice. If you experience any pain or discomfort, contact your doctor right away.
