What is Yoga?
Well, yoga is the ultimate medium to bridge the gap between you and your true self. It’s time to meet the true ‘You’ and book a ticket to your real nature that is happiness and bliss. If there is a form of exercise that can make you happy while doing it, that’s Yoga.
Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t realize that they are in a depressed state until depression pulls their souls out of them.
Sometimes it gets very difficult to understand one’s life’s circumstances. Depression, lack of motivation, insomnia, and poor relationships with people start to affect your personal health also. They can also make you run desperately after money, happiness, career, and success.
And when you tell people about your mental health issues, generally they laugh it off with silly comments.
Then what is the solution to all this mess, you might ask?
“How can I strike a balance between my responsibilities and goals, stay relaxed or in short, live the life of my dreams?”
The answer is a four-letter word ‘YOGA’!
Yoga helps you to focus on what you have rather than what you don’t have. Most importantly with yoga, you learn how to embrace your competitive side and utilize it in a way that inspires you to become a happier person.
It teaches you that instead of wasting your life hopelessly running after success and comparing yourself to others, you should let life take its natural course. The success and happiness will follow you instead of you following them.
Let’s go through some great benefits of Yoga that can get the best out of you if you do it regularly with dedication and love:
Yoga is a Great Problem Solver
Yoga works amazingly when challenges and problems come in your way as it is a natural focus and patience enhancer. Your ability to deal with any kind of emotional, mental, physical and spiritual challenges is greatly increased.
It Reduces your Stress and Anxiety
Healing with yoga doesn’t happen overnight but constant practice can surely do wonders for you. Simple breathing and moving exercises release your anxiety and tension like no other. The physical movements stretch and relax your muscles while the breathing exercises increase the blood flow which eventually refreshes your mind and body.
A Focus Enhancer
The breathing you do while performing Yoga postures (Asanas) makes your focus like a laser. A relaxed body and mind will let you think clearly, concentrate in a much better way and stay stress-free. An energized parasympathetic nervous system will also let you sleep well at night.
It Unlocks your True Potential
Real success can only come when you use your abilities to the fullest. It doesn’t matter what position you acquire or how much you earn but whether you are living your life to the fullest or not. Yoga lets you see things as they are and live more joyfully.
Sky Rockets your Health
If you’ve got your mental health sorted, your physical health will automatically be top notch which means fewer leaves and more completed tasks at your workplace. Yoga can treat any illness which exists by increasing the flow of blood and oxygen and improving your circulatory system.
Fixes you in the ‘Present Moment’
Being in the present moment is one of the most important things that anybody can do. Yoga helps to be more conscious and aware of inner feelings, thoughts, and emotions and lets us control our actions towards circumstances with a better approach.
A Balanced Life
If you want to live a balanced life then Yoga is must for you. Meditation, mindfulness and breathing exercises make you aware and conscious of yourself. Moreover, it will open endless possibilities for you to explore.
The only person who is standing between you and an extraordinary life filled with joy, wealth and success is ‘You’.
