5 satvic food that makes for a perfect yoga diet to balance your body and mind

It is said that ‘when the diet is wrong medicine of no use’ and ‘when the diet is correct medicine is of no need’. Diet plays an important role in the functioning of our body and mind. Even while practicing yoga, diet plays an important role in reaping the benefits. Yoga is one of the most important regimes which when complemented with a healthy diet, works wonders! In fact, eating the right kind of food is an integral part of living a yogic life.It is interesting to see how certain foods have a subtle effect on mind and mood. Ayurveda offers comprehensive information on how various foods affect our mental and physical well-being along with spiritual strength. Yoga does not distinguish food based on proteins, fats or carbohydrates, instead, it classifies them based on the effect they have on our mind and body. The food is classified into satva, tamas, and rajas. Tamas is the type of food which makes us lethargic and sluggish while rajasic food makes us feel restless. Satvic food is considered the best of all which makes us feel energetic, light and enthusiastic. A satvic food diet is recommended while taking yoga teachers training in India.Sattva is the pure quality of equanimity as well as spiritual goodness. It brings intelligence, awareness, joy, and virtue. Satvic diet promotes purity of mind and body and it should be cultivated for a compassionate, clear and calm mind. While pursuing 200 hour yoga teachers training in India, consuming a satvic diet offers physical strength and flexibility to practice various asana and focus on mindful meditation.Including these satvic foods in your diet will promote holistic wellness during 200 YTT in India:GheeGhee is one of the most revered satvic food items whose importance has been mentioned even in ancient Vedas. Rice with ghee and soma juice is considered as the diet of the God. The properties of ghee depend on its source, i.e. the type of milk. The most recommended and beneficial type of ghee is the one which is made from cow milk. Making ghee at home ensures purity and no adulteration. Ghee is also essential to keep your joints lubricated in long-run.Organic fresh fruitsFresh fruits are an important part of satvic diet during yoga teachers training in Dharamsala. However, Avocados and Tomatoes should be avoided as they are rajasic in nature. But you can safely consume rest of the fruits including bananas, apples, grapes, oranges, berries, melons, plums and peaches. These fruits are considered satvic and are consumed especially by yogis. They symbolize generosity and spirituality and increase magnetism.HoneyProcessed white sugar needs to be avoided while consuming a satvic diet. Honey is a natural sweetener which is acceptable in a satvic diet. Other sweeteners such as fruit juice and sugar cane juice can also be used while cooking satvic food while pursuing 200 hour yoga teacher training course.Organic vegetablesYou can consume most of the vegetables while on a satvic diet but refrain from using onions and garlic while cooking. Consuming vegetables with mushrooms, potatoes, and hot pepper is not satvic. Instead go for mild organic vegetables like beets, cucumbers, carrots, green leafies, celery and sweet potatoes.Seeds and NutsSoaking seeds and nuts overnight removes their natural enzyme inhibitors and makes them easy for your body to digest. Choose pure and fresh nuts and seeds instead of roasted or salted nuts as they lose satvic properties. Almonds, sesame seeds, flax seeds and walnuts make for great choices.It is essential to establish a harmony in the way we breathe, live, eat, and drink for a holistic approach. To reap the benefits of best YTT in India, it is best to stick to a satvic diet which will help you cope up with the requirements of your training program.If you are looking for an affordable yoga teacher training in India, Chinmay Yoga is the place to look for! Experienced tutors, comfortable accommodation, tranquil ambience and satvic food are some of the major attractions of the centre. Enrol yourself for a life-changing experience at Chinmay yoga.See More

Auto Insurance: How to Find the Best Deal for Your Car

Car insurance can get fairly expensive, regardless of where you live. You can easily find yourself paying too much and if you’re a fairly safe driver, you have every reason to be concerned. While it is possible to get a better deal, you might need some advice on how to go about it. Here are some tips on finding the best deal on car insurance. Do Your ResearchThere’s no shortage of commercials trying to convince you that they’re the best deal in town. Unfortunately, rates can vary among different companies, even for the same driver. Your best bet is to shop around and look for discounts. Bundling auto insurance with other types of policies, owning a vehicle with certain safety features and agreeing to receive statements online (paperless) could qualify you for discounts. Note that you might also get lower rates from local and regional insurers like Rob Jackson Insurance. Maintain Good CreditOne of the most important things you can do to ensure a better rate is to take care of your credit. Your credit score is taken into account in most states, with the exception of California, Massachusetts and Hawaii, when receiving auto insurance quotes. Having poor credit can actually cost you hundreds of dollars more each year, compared to someone with good credit. Be sure to pay your bills on time, pay down your debts and keep track of your credit score to ensure there are no errors on it. Downsize Your VehicleSome vehicles will cost more to insure than others, regardless of the owner’s driving record. Whether you get a discount or a surcharge doesn’t necessarily indicate the quality of the vehicle. On the other hand, it’s likely to reflect factors like accident frequency, repair costs and likelihood of theft. Certain websites can provide you with a rating that should give you some idea where your vehicle stands. Be sure to take this into consideration when purchasing a new or used vehicle. Drive SafelyOne of the most common ways to qualify for a discount is to maintain a safe driving record. You might for discounts of 5 to 10 percent, depending on how many years you’ve gone without tickets or accidents. Lawyers, doctors and senior citizens are among the groups of people who are thought to be less accident-prone. If you fit this profile, you could potentially save some money. You might also get a discount for attending a defensive driving course. Raise Your DeductibleChoosing the highest deductible you can handle signals that you’ll likely use your policy only for losses that are worth the trouble. If the damage is small and affordable, you would be better off paying for it yourself. This allows you to qualify for a lower premium, since you’re accepting a larger portion of the risk. The higher your deductible is, the larger the discount you can expect. Just be sure to set some of the money you’re saving aside for potential expenses. Insure Multiple Cars with One PolicyIf you have multiple cars in your household, consider putting them all on the same policy. Most insurance companies will cut you a discount for additional vehicles under the same coverage. Since more experienced drivers can qualify for better rates, if you’re under 25, it makes sense to get someone like that on your policy. On a similar note, you may also qualify for a discount if you’re willing to take out other types of policies with the company, such as for home insurance. Remember to reevaluate your policy at least twice a year. There’s lots of competition in the insurance market and rates have a way of creeping up gradually. Fortunately, there will always be another company out there with lower rates that’s willing to give you a better deal.See More

100+ Used Car Dealers per Week Listing on New Classified Site at No Charge for Listings or Leads!

The concept is quite simple; give used car dealers a place to list their inventory, send them free leads, and get someone else to pay for it! Seems simple enough right?www.UsedCarsForSale.com staff is signing 100+ dealers per week to their state-of-the-art automotive classified site that they espouse as being “free for life” to any and all car dealers with used car inventory. For any dealers with doubts as to the expected veracity of this classified site, consider the fact that Lithia Motors, Group 1 Automotive, and Larry H. Miller are now listing their used car inventory on it as well. Truth be told, it’s only free to dealers with used car inventory.Yes, used car dealers get free listings and leads, but someone is definitely picking up the tab. If it’s not dealers, then who is it? Turns out there is a huge need for testing platforms, specifically, for marketing technology.Technologists from a variety of companies are paying to beta-test their technology and services to see what is best suited to drive high-quality traffic (with a high-intent to buy) to dealership sites, and how to process them once they get to the site.For used car dealers who are looking to list inventory and receive free leads, the site is a “gift horse” in the making. For companies with promising technology that need a means to beta-test, a relationship with the folks at UsedCarsForSale.com makes a lot of sense. Not to be confused with any other automotive classified site with “car” in it, this site is just a great, old-school, free referral site, with a consumer friendly design, and high-tech backend where dealers can expect to receive first-generation, solid leads from.As inventory builds, and dealers from all 50 states and Canada continue to join at the rate they currently are, www.UsedCarsForSale.com is poised to become a major provider of revenue for tens of thousands of car dealers with used car inventory of all shapes and sizes.www.dealershipnews.com for more blog pieces and dealer interviews!See More

The Golden Rule for Change and Improvement

The automotive industry as we know it is undergoing a transition. From electric cars, to ride sharing, to autonomous cars, the landscape is rapidly changing. With consumers demanding convenience, and technology that radically changes the customer experience, we should brace for a decade of disruptive change. All this change sometimes makes it difficult to wrap our minds around how to identify problem areas and create solutions that solve them. I recently read about an interesting concept in the New York Times. The author suggests that it’s not only the automotive industry that’s undergoing this change, but our society overall. He posits that once upon a time society had a plan for each of us. We went to school, perhaps to college, learned a trade and then worked at that trade. However, with many jobs now automated, and humans supplanted by machines, there’s no longer a set path for some individuals. The article suggests that we, both as individuals and a society, need to become changemakers. What’s a changemaker? According to the article, “Changemakers are people who can see the patterns around them, identify the problems in any situation, figure out ways to solve the problem, organize fluid teams, lead collective action and then continually adapt as situations change.” Sounds like a tall order, right? My guess, however, is that your dealership already has employees with this desire, but it may not have been harnessed. It could be a manager, salesperson, technician, service advisor, or even the porter. To harness this latent talent pool, you need to build a bottom-up culture.  Remember, your employees want to see you “walk the talk.”  If you are serious about improvement, everyone should be empowered to make suggestions and initiative should be rewarded.   Toyota’s famous continuous improvement philosophy relies on practitioners identifying “Muda,” otherwise known as waste, and then “kaizen-ing,” or improving the process. The trick is to get everyone at your dealership to become Kaizen agents. Empowering everyone is simply a matter of accepting ideas, executing them and then recognizing the improvement through visual means that others notice. Your employees are your most valuable assets. Every employee has a drive inside them to make a difference. Engaging them in this way will get them to be more committed and they will stay longer. Take the leap and change the culture of your company so that everyone becomes a change agent! See More

Making a Better Mousetrap: Leverage Consumer Behavior to Increase Conversions

As I have mentioned in past blogs, few customers complete lead forms, making it very difficult for dealers to track the source of their sales. Without this information, it’s virtually impossible to make educated decisions about how to spend your marketing dollars. It’s time to build a better mousetrap so that dealers get insight into the behavior of online shoppers, even those who never fill out a lead form, ultimately increasing conversions. The first thing we need to know to build a better solution is why consumers aren’t filling out lead forms. I think some of the reasons include: 1)   Information Availability – There is more information available online than ever before. Consumers can gather this information 24 hours a day and obtain instant results. They don’t need to fill out a form and wait for a response to get what they need when most of it is at their fingertips. 2)   Trust factor - This information is not only convenient, but they also trust that it’s accurate. Frequently, consumers report that a dealer they contacted online is unresponsive, doesn’t answer their questions, or simply invites them for a test drive without helping them first. 3)   Time investment – In general, consumers don’t like the traditional car buying process. The perception is that buying a car is an all-day task and they simply don’t have the time to invest. Filling out a lead form, in their mind, is the first step of a time-consuming process they may not be ready to start.  Obviously, if you can increase the number of lead-form submissions, you would have access to more accurate information about your consumer’s behavior. Today it’s crucial to know which sites influence the consumers’ decisions and which ones don’t. Knowing the answer to that question can easily give your dealership a competitive digital advantage. But while there are lots of tools on the market today that give you access to some of this data, not many can help you fill in the activity of those anonymous buyers. If you’re only relying on the straight line between a click and a conversion for someone that filled out a lead form, there’s no way to know what’s really influencing consumers and producing ROI. You need to know all the influencers for all your customers. You can’t build a better mousetrap if you don’t know how that mouse will react to different stimuli -- a little cheese here and a little cheese there can easily motivate the mouse to follow the path that you want it to. Without taking all the mouse’s behavior into account, however, you’ll never know which things are moving it closer to the desired destination and which are moving it farther away. Remove cheese at this place and perhaps the mouse takes a different path… put some cheese in this spot and perhaps they make a beeline to the destination. Don’t make your marketing decisions solely based on where the mouse was when he ate the cheese. Rather, figure out what led the mouse from the entrance to that point.See More
