Yoga is the epitome of fitness. Since centuries Yogis used to practice this divine art of fitness in India and this gives them the power to survive in the deadliest environment of Himalaya where they pass most of the life practicing Yoga. That’s why I believe yoga can help you fight the chaos of your daily living and give you the boost of energy which will help you to change your life.
For many of us, a strenuous workout routine can drain us of energy. Workouts also take up a lot of time, adding to the stress. Yoga, on the other hand, helps relieve the stress as well as sharing therapeutic values to the body such as in reducing inflammation and promoting sleep quality.
Yoga has life-changing properties and here are a few to help:
1. Helps to Ease Migraine
Yoga therapy has been around for centuries. In recent times, the increase in the harshness of the sun rays and pollution has led to many physical problems. A migraine being one of them slows down our productivity rate. This head-splitting ache gets us to shut our eyes from all bright lights. But daily yoga can help with the migraine-related problems. Yoga therapy soothes our nerves and helps them ease, healing to relieve a headache and reducing its intensity.
2. Helps You to Combat Depression
Our lives are full of stress, be it due to work or personal life. We strive each day to combat the negativities and stay resolute to our goals. But stress after a point gets to us and can lead to feeling numb and depressed. Depression is a common mental health issue which requires time, patience and understanding. Yoga helps relieve the stress hormone in the body, letting us feel free and rejuvenated with daily practice.
3. Make Your Body Strong and More Flexible
Our bodies at times get stiff and achy due to lack of exercise and proper fitness schedules. Yoga helps to bring flexibility and strength to your body. Intermediate and advanced forms of yoga require the body to hold positions which requires bending, twisting and proper flexibility. This aids the body to reduce stiffness that occurs in our muscles and nerves.
4. Helps you Handle the Pain
Our bodies and the bones wear out with age, leading to many diseases such as osteoarthritis and increased muscle sprains. Yoga-therapy brings about an improvement in our bodies by healing the bones, keeping the joints flexible and strengthening it from mere accidents. Bone joint health deteriorating is common amongst women crossing their 50s. Yoga helps them relive their younger days without the pain and caution.
5. Makes You Calm
Yoga is well-known for bringing about mindfulness and greater attention span to our lives. This aids greatly while we consume food. We are always in a rush, eating fast-cooked food or just a chunk of fried eatables. Such things happen when we are not aware of our health and put in junk into our system.
Yoga brings calmness to your mind which helps you to combat negative thoughts in your brain.
Yoga has innumerable advantages and these are but a few. I have met so many people who have changed their life by just adding a 20-minute yoga session in their daily living.
