With the rushed lifestyle that we lead today, it’s no surprise that many of us find it difficult to achieve that all-important balance. Balance is the key. It’s that anti-stress medicine that comes for free. When you've got time for yourself, you feel in-control of life. This can positively reduce the effects of stress on your mind and body. However, having said that, not all stress is unhealthy. Humans need stress in order to achieve their many lofty goals; however, it must be in moderation. Too much stress for too long can shorten your lifespan and cause early onset of the woes of aging.

At some point in your life, you've probably experienced that overload of stress as well. You begin to feel startled, irritable, constantly fatigued, and emotionally distraught. Leave it unattended, and it will get worse. It’s not uncommon to experience cold sweats, palpitations, headaches, and even muscle tensions. It all boils down to this intangible disease – stress. So, how do we go about reversing this stress cycle? Surely, you don’t want to end up in THAT situation! That’s where tai chi comes in. Tai chi, also known as qigong or chi kung, is a meditative practise that changes the manner in which your body manages the pressures that your lifestyle imposes on it.

More and more Canadians are today turning to tai chi for a solution to the rising stress. Even learning the mere fundamentals of qigong Mississauga have evidently produced remarkable improvement in customers’ stress tolerances. And, most of us certainly won’t mind the improved fitness that unavoidably results.

Michelle, a personal fitness trainer talks about the benefits of chi kung and tai chi, in her latest article, Energy Healing with Chi Kung (Qigong) . She refers to Irina Benoit, who traines and leads Chi Kung classes in Toronto and Mississauga, Canada.

The discipline mental and physical routines of chi kung disguise many benefits to you besides that as well. It boosts up your immunity, lowers blood pressure, and increases your capacity for creativity and mental focus. Take up qigong today for a stress-free life !
