Zen wisdom for dealing with life’s inevitable delays and difficulties.

If you’re regularly leaving your front door these days you will face delays. While we all know that, less understood is the emotional price tag of congestion - reported as the biggest cause of day-to-day stress. I know this first hand. For a year or so I had a job where I was driving a thousand miles a week on top of an eight-hour office day. The condition of the roads determined whether my week was impossible or simply insane. When you’re behind the wheel it’s trickier than, for example, being stuck in an airport or on a train. You’re still driving, even if only intermittently. There’s no way you can snooze or have a little walk or lose yourself in a good book. Some drivers get so stressed behind the wheel that it leads to homicidal fury. Just in the USA alone, there are around 1,200 (and rising) road rage incidents each year. So, learning to handle this source of stress might even become a matter of life and death.

About OM Yoga Magazine

Welcome to the August issue of OM Yoga & Lifestyle magazine. We hope you’re having a great summer so far. In this issue we’ve got a couple of special reports, including a look at naked yoga and why people are loving it. Are you brave enough to try it? Liberating or exhibitionist: we’d love to know your thoughts! We’ve also got a yoga for back care report inside, as well as plenty of other goodies too. For starters, we’re kicking off a new five part series - A Brief History of Yoga in the West - where you can discover how the yoga you now enjoy reached your home town all the way from India. There’s lots of practical yoga as well, including our regular 360º Yoga anatomy academy and a great sequence for a head, neck and shoulders release. There’s something for everyone in this issue to keep you inspired on and off the mat throughout the month. Happy reading!
