Yoga Benefits Meditation and Time Alone

Most people don't really like spending time on their own. I think that's because they feel somewhat socially rejected if they are often alone. However, solitude and loneliness are not exactly the same thing. Solitude actually means that you choose to spend some time alone because you enjoy it. 

Solitude can make you more self-sufficient, add to your confidence, and help you get to know yourself a lot better. If being alone scares you, bores you, or just isn’t your favorite thing, here’s how you can make your time more productive.

1. You can reboot your brain and unwind.

You certainly need to give your brain a chance to rest and replenish itself. Being by yourself with no distractions gives you the chance to clear your mind, focus, and think more clearly. It's an opportunity to revitalize your mind and body at the same time.

2. You can learn something new.

Learning is the most important aspect of living alone. It gives you something to talk about when you do have to actually enter society. Learning is also incredibly more efficient when you don't have social responsibilities like family to take care of, or a girlfriend or boyfriend to entertain. Learning isn't just exclusive to books (although they are a great source of knowledge). You can learn to do anything by just practicing - such as a new language.

3. You learn to be independent

Self-reliance is a worthy goal. Get closer to reaching it by increasing your time alone. Independence of mind and lifestyle can lead to productivity and fulfillment. Once you have a solid solo approach to things, there's nothing you won't be able to do. You will be able to follow your dreams - even if this means that you will have to do it on your own! You will become your own supporter.

4. You can become more creative

Your creativity flourishes when you are removed from outside influences.
If you want to paint your house, paint a picture, design something, write something, invent something, spend quiet time allowing your imaginative genius freedom to explore possibilities. It can be a most rewarding experience. Explore your abilities and interests. You may come up with something that will change your life.


5. You can set up new goals and see how to achieve them.

During your alone time, you can think about your dreams, set up new goals, see what you really want in your life and make a plan with clear steps to achieve them.

6. You can improve your relationships with others.

By spending time with yourself and gaining a better understanding of who you are and what you desire in life, you're more likely to make better choices about who you want to be around. You also may come to appreciate your relationships more after you've spent some time alone.

7. You will put things in perspective

Put your day, week and year in perspective by reflecting on where your life is headed. In the absence of other people's influence, you are free to reevaluate what's important to you, be it your job, your friends or your loved ones, and set yourself on the appropriate course of action. Think about what you want; then, follow through on your own time.

8. You can listen to your inner voice.

When your mind is calm, when there is no rush, you can hear your inner voice. You have time to listen to yourself, to discover your dreams, to believe in yourself and focus on your beauty.

9. You get to do whatever you want

Some people don’t hate being alone so much as they find it boring. When you’re with others, you have the advantage of multiple minds thinking of an enjoyable activity. When you’re alone, you’re left with the job entirely. Keep eyes and your mind open! ;)

10. Quiet time can help you sort through problems.

Just sitting down and thinking through a problem, thinking about what caused it and how best to resolve it can result in very effective solutions. But even if a solution is not forthcoming, just having taken the time to think things through and to understand the problem more thoroughly can bring peace and a certain courage to carry on.

Organic Athleisure, Yoga, Gym Gear

Why the Change?

For one thing, the expectations for women's bodies has thankfully shifted a bit. In the 1990s, a super-thin, unhealthy body was idealized; now the focus seems to be on healthy toned bodies. Activewear is currently the fastest-growing fashion market, and has become more widely desirable for a number of reasons, including recent celebrity collaborations like Kanye West and Beyoncé. Available at Miami Bikini Shop, the Organic Bamboo Yoga gear is known for comfort and softness. Miami Bikini Shop also has an on-trend leisurewear range including hand painted jumpsuits that are truly amazing. Bamboo is the best material for Yoga and Gym wear by far.


Miami Bikini Shop uses certified organic forest-growing vegan bamboo (OCIA for International standard, NOP for USA standard) to create the beautiful textiles used in Miami Bikini Shop. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth, and unlike many other commercial plants it requires no irrigation, chemical pesticides, or fertilizers. This amazing, sustainable plant grows wild, and most of the time does not need to be replanted because the act of harvesting the raw material for our textiles does not kill it. Most importantly, our bamboo farms provide a positive environmental impact by capturing green house gases to produce abundant supplies of usable oxygen. Additionally, bamboo is also used as a food source, to create medicine, and even in the production of building materials. It is classified as an erosion prevention plant, and the cultivation of bamboo forests on a mass scale could play a major role in the reversal of global warming.


*Bamboo is classified as a tropical grass & grows faster then any other plant on earth *Bamboo regenerates naturally without replanting, eliminating the need for re-forestation *Bamboo can yield 20 times more timber than trees on the same square footage of land *Bamboo can withstand extreme conditions of drought and wetness, and can be grown in soil damaged by overgrazing and poor agriculture *Bamboo is used as a re-builder of soil erosion removes toxins from contaminated soil *Bamboo greatly reduces rain run off and keeps twice as much water in the watershed *Bamboo grows without the need for harmful chemical pesticides and chemical fertilizers. *Bamboo produces a high quality and quantity of oxygen, 30% more than trees *Bamboo will mitigate water pollution with harmful pesticides and an array of other harmful content through high nitrogen consumption *Bamboo fiber is 100% bio-degradable through prolonged sunlight exposure *Bamboo helps reduce carbon dioxide gases blamed for global warning. Some bamboo sequesters up to 12 tons of carbon dioxide per hectare, which makes it an efficient replenisher of fresh air.  


Organic bamboo fiber has a natural anti-bacterial and deodorization effect. This comes from a natural occurring agent called "Bamboo Kun". Test results from the Japanese Textile Inspection Association show over 70% death rate of bacteria after being incubated on bamboo fiber fabric, with no deterioration after repeated washing. This occurs totally naturally without chemical treatment, so bamboo fabrics are ideal for those with skin allergies or who are chemically sensitive.  

Breathability & Thermal Control

Organic bamboo fiber has a unique cross section of micro gaps and micro holes that enable it to give a natural breathability to keep you cooler in the warm months. The reverse effect is created through the cross section of the bamboo fiber. This allows the bamboo fiber to keep you warmer in the cold months trapping warm air next to the skin, thus creating a natural thermal control effect. In addition, with its unique micro-structure, bamboo fiber can absorb and evaporate sweat in a split second, making it the perfect choice for performance athletic apparel.   UVA Protection Long time exposure to UVA rays has been proven to be cancer causing. Bamboo fiber naturally blocks 98% of all harmful UVA rays.  


We are in strict accordance with the international organic standard of OCIA/NOP, so as to ensure each bamboo we select is 100% organically grown in a managed farm. Also, all of our bamboo is 100% Oeko-Tek Certified, which regulates the highest quality of the processing and tests the finished fiber to be free from all harmful chemicals.
