5G stands for Fifth Generation of wireless technologies. And it will add up to - not replace - our current technologies. So why is 4G not enough? 4G has been designed to meet the needs of people. But 5G has been created with the machines’ needs in mind. 5G will offer transmission speeds powerful enough to accomodate The Internet Of Things. All the devices you can think of that can be switched on and off will be connected to the internet. It’s estimated that over 24 billion devices will be connected to the internet of things by 2020. The idea behind 5G is to use untapped bandwidth of extremely high-frequency millimeter waves, between 30GHz and 300GHz in addition to what’s already being used. High frequency millimeter waves travel a short distance, and don’t travel well through buildings, and tend to get absorbed by plants and rain. To counter this problem 5G will utilize smaller cell stations. This means thousands of wireless antennas in our neighbourhoods. They will be placed on street lamps, houses, schools, churches, shops and even trees. There has been very little research done on the effects of millimeter waves on our health and environment. “5G technology is a very real danger,” warns Dr. Moskowitz, a public health professor at the University of California. “The deployment of 5G, or fifth generation cellular technology, constitutes a massive experiment on the health of all species,” he said. In September 2017 the EU 5G Appeal, signed by more than 180 scientists and doctors from 35 nations was submitted to the European Commission demanding a moratorium on the increase of cell/mobile antennas for planned 5G expansion.
Risks from 5G include:
Damage to the eyes – cataracts, retinal damage
Immune system disruption
Leakage of blood brain barrier
Damage to sperm
Increased risk of cancers
Depression and suicide
Collapse of insect populations, the base of food for birds and bats

Here we go! Second Vlog is out. :) Today I would like to introduce you to my skincare routine and tell you more about what I use and why. This is such a broad topic! I decided to focus on the first step of my skincare routine: cleansing. Let me share with you a skincare tip that I have been using with a great success for the past few years. Check it out!
My first Welness Vlog inpired by the #tenyearchallenge. This is an introduction where I talk about my own journey to a better health. It has been over ten years since I made a choice to take a good care of my physical, mental and emotional health. Simply, by paying attention and being mindful, I've begun to realize what benefits me and what doesn't. I acknowledged the importance of everything that I feed my body, mind and soul. Everything I eat, read, listen to, watch, think, who I choose to spend my time with, etc, is contributing to who I am. Who do I want to be? What do I care about? Quality. So I started with myself, knowing that in order to serve my community and people I care about, I need to take a good care of myself. I wanted to be a quality person and have a quality life. I know that being healthy and comfortable with myself is essential to be able to help people in my community achieve exactly the same: a quality life.
Where do we start?
With our temple: the body. How is your posture? And how much attention do you pay to how you carry yourself through each day? Begin by reducing bad habits and watch healthy ones developing naturally when you create space by letting go of what doesn't serve you. :)

Feeling anxious, worried or overwhelmed? Having emotions is part of our human existence. There is nothing wrong with feeling sad, anxious and worried, as long as we can process those feelings in a healthy way. Everyone feels anxious from time to time, but the effects of anxiety over a long period of time can negatively impact your physical and emotional health. Meditation can help in finding inner place of comfort and peace. Regardless of circumstances you can turn inward to find a place inside yourself that you can trust as your home.
Everything is slowly waking up from winter hibernation. Energy is rising. We are transitioning into Spring. Time of renewal and growth.
We begin with spinal movements and breath awareness. Slowly awakening the body and progressing into more dynamic practice.
Join me for the practice of conscious breathing. We begin simply by bringing soft focus to the breath. Observing the flow of the breath, movement of the body, and becoming aware of the quality of the breath. Attuning with one's breath helps to control it. We will focus on keeping inhale and exhale equal in length to calm the nervous system and relax the body. We will then concentrate on the space between the breaths. Space of stillness. Noticing where the breath originates and where it ends. We will then gently expand that space. Breath retention, kumbhaka in sanscrit, helps us to bring the mind into a state of stillness.
