Transcendental Meditation

It is more customizable than mantra meditation, using a mantra or series of words that are specific to each practitioner.

This practice is for those who like structure and are serious about maintaining a meditation practice.

How to Use Essential Oils for Aromatherapy
  • 15 to 60 minutes is the ideal limit—never breathe in essential oils for more than one hour at a time.
  • Always follow the instructions on the bottle.
  • If you’re taking any medications or suffer from a chronic health condition, ask your doctor first.
  • Essential oils must be used correctly to yield health rewards.
  • A diffuser is the most effective way to disperse essential oils into the air. Use one or two drops of one oil at a time.

If you stick within the safe time limit and open a window when you're done, you can practice aromatherapy every day.

The Science of Cybersickness

Cybersickness is caused by a mismatch in sensory input involving the:

  • visual system (what your eyes tell your brain)
  • vestibular system (what your inner ear senses regarding head movement and balance)
  • proprioceptive system (what sensory receptors throughout your body feel)

When you look at a screen, your eyes signal your brain that there’s a lot of movement. But your vestibular and proprioceptive systems tell your brain that all is steady.

It can make you lightheaded and sick to your stomach.
