Many of our clients are complaining of a sore neck and back with disturbed sleep patterns from working at the dining room table. To relieve aches and pains while refreshing your pineal gland try our Chair Yoga lunchtime class. Making a commitment to attend this class encourages you to stop in the middle of the day. It is not unusual for people to sit on a chair for up to eight hours in front of a screen.
Prolonged sitting is a health risk
Sitting for prolonged periods of time is a risk to your health. It is often accompanied by poor posture and inappropriate ergonomics. In view of this, it is important to understand how to keep your spine, breathing, circulation and muscles tension free.
Ensure you have the correct desk and chair height, lighting and that laptops are inline with your eyes. Because sitting with poor ergonomics for hours at a time locks the body into abnormal positions creating pain and strain.
Are you one of those people with a sore neck, shoulders or back?
The pineal gland is for creativity and intuition
We want to share with you the how the glow of a digital screen suppresses the endocrine and pineal gland in the brain.
By the way, melatonin produced in the pineal gland is activated by darkness and is suppressed by light.
(Read here about Time Drunkenness with Technology?)
Electromagnetic fields released by mobile phones and other wireless devices suppress the pineal gland. Also the happy chemicals in the brain are transformed into melatonin in the pineal gland.
Melatonin affects the stress hormone levels called cortisol. Low melatonin levels increase cortisol which disrupts our sleep patterns. Sleep disturbance occur after a busy day in front of a screen. A healthy pineal gland is crucial to healthy cell growth.
Effects of an impaired pineal gland are:-
- Mood swings, depression and seasonal disorders
- A decrease against free radicals.
- Triggering the ageing process
- Disturbed sleep patterns
Ancient art traditions depicted the pineal gland as associated with enlightenment and mortality. It is a chakra energy centre, source of intuition and clairvoyance. The pineal gland provides perceptions beyond plain sight.
Whether we look at the pineal gland from a philosophical or scientific point of view it plays a vital role in mental, physical and spiritual health.
