Ahlan!'s Lifestyle Masterclass with A-list Guru Deepak Chopra

10 Sep 2013

Stressed? Angry? Knackered? Spiritual guru to the stars Deepak Chopra shares his top 10 tips for chilling out ahead of his visit to the UAE

1 Listen to Your Inner Voice
“Listen to your body’s wisdom, which expresses itself through signals of comfort and discomfort,” says Deepak. “When choosing a certain behaviour, ask your body, ‘How do you feel about this?’ If your body sends a signal of physical or emotional distress, watch out. If your body sends a signal of comfort or eagerness, proceed.”

2 Live in the Present
“It’s the only moment you have,” says Deepak, who insists we should not hold onto the past. “Keep your attention on what is here and now; look for the fullness in every moment. Accept what comes to you totally and completely so that you can appreciate it, learn from it, and then let it go. Don’t struggle against the infinite scheme of things, instead, be at one with it.”

3 Meditate Every Day
Deepak’s a big fan of meditation and has taught it to celebs, including Michael Jackson. He says: “Take time to be silent, to meditate, to quiet the internal dialogue. Do it every day. That’s the only thing. Spend at least 15 to 20 minutes every day with your eyes closed and no agenda.”
