Yoga as a phenomenon and a trend gained popularity in the early 20th century, when its positive effects on the state of the human organism, in terms of both physical and emotional/psychosocial health, were practically and theoretically determined. Modern medicine today mentions in all studies that natural and alternative treatments in a huge percentage of cases can have very noticeable effects, both respecting the prevention and the treatment of various diseases. Medical yoga is extremely appreciated in this context among doctors, especially as it helps to develop a positive state in the individual not only by treating the disease but also by eliminating psycho-emotional blockages that are often the main causes of a disease.

The advanced state of the pharmaceutical industry has led to the fact that we can find drugs on the market today that can eliminate most disorders. Precisely because we are accustomed to eliminating all our discomforts by swallowing tablets, in recent years the number of drug addicts has grown enormously. In order to prevent this scenario, alternative methods of treatment are increasingly popular, of which music therapy is particularly important.

Meditation, according to its wider definition, can be considered a technique that relaxes the body and calms the thoughts to make the practitioner feel more comfortable, pleasant, and relaxed. In its narrower definition, meditation is a spiritual discipline that through the acquired skill of controlling the mind and body allows a deeper and closer contact with the practitioner’s mental state and his soul. It is a program by which the body and soul are aligned, connected, and merged with the goal of achieving a sense of freedom, joy, satisfaction, self-confidence, and happiness.

Essential to the maturation and development of every human being is the individual’s innate desire to progress, to accomplish his own goals, and constantly renew himself, to become happy and satisfied. Most people on the way to their goals encounter a series of challenges and problems, which some successfully overcome, while others do not. In such cases, people agree on the need for a script to determine why they cannot, but they do not know how to proceed, and they do not know how to accomplish what they want and simultaneously improve the lives of those around them. The question is why that is so. If both the successful and the unsuccessful man had the same conditions, the same 24 hours for achieving a goal, what is the difference between the one who is successful and the one who is not?

Today, the Internet is the foundation of every communication, learning process, or business. Every other inhabitant of the planet is an active internet user. Since its appearance in the second half of the twentieth century, this virtuous medium has brought many positive – but also many negative – effects. Do you feel nervous when there is no Internet available so you cannot access Instagram or send an email or watch a favorite movie or series? If you have an affirmative answer to this question, believe it or not you have some of the symptoms of Internet addiction.

You've heard often that it's important to think positively, right? Have you wondered why this is important? Has it ever occurred to you that the focus of modern popular psychology is concentrated on positive thoughts? The main reason lies in the discovery that positive thoughts act to stimulate the brain, soul, and body and contribute to progressive personal development and business success, maintaining the health of the whole organism, and especially the immune system. Additionally, it is fascinating to consider that scientific studies have found that people with positive thoughts have long lives. It seems to me that these are sufficient reasons to deal seriously with education about positive thoughts ... and let's start in order.

Statistics show that 95% of the population at least once in their lives (especially at young age) will sense that what is currently observed has been seen already, experienced somewhere. The biggest problem is that déjà vu lasts only a few seconds and can not possibly be revisited in a laboratory and experimentally studied. Regardless of the very rugged standards that scientists have, there are theories that can explain what's going on with our brains in time to link them with anything experienced in the past.

Scientists are always searching for a discovery that will provide a quick and easy way to increase intelligence. That music has an effect on systemic memory and learning has been known since the time of Plato, but how and why does his happen?

Most people live in the belief that dreams are something unimportant, irrelevant, and useless. No matter that ordinary dreams are recipients of important messages and lessons that often we do not take seriously. Is it possible that a special world opens in our minds during sleep, a world that finds solutions in our dreams to the problems of our waking hours? Stephen LaBerge, founder of the Lucidity Institute, holds that it is a scientifically proven fact that people find solutions to their problems in controlled dreams, the dreams that LaBerge also refers to as lucid dreams.

In the psychological literature it is possible to find more than sixty different definitions of creativity. Probably the most widespread concept is that creativity is manifested in the creation of any new work that is both original and useful. Creativity is a mental process that involves the discovery of new ideas, concepts, solutions to problems, or establishing links between existing concepts and ideas. Creativity is a skill that is practiced and developed like any other. Where and how do we find "creativity"?
