6 Reasons Why Yoga is the Answer
06 Jun 2016
WITH ONGOING HYPE AND ENDLESS PRAISE, IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY JUMPED ON THE BANDWAGON, HERE ARE 6 REASONS WHY YOGA IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER.
1. MORE FLEXIBILITY
Achieving fine results takes time, hard work and perseverance, and yoga will teach you no different. If you consider yourself uncoordinated and barely flexible then fear not, because the more you yoga you do, the more flexible you will become. Over time, your joints will loosen further as your muscles tighten, allowing for your potential to increase.
2. A STRONGER MIND
Leave your worries at the door, accept that you can't change the past and look toward the future. When the mind is heavily occupied by the stress, questioning and replaying of issues and moments it cannot change, it becomes incredibly difficult for the individual to cope when a new problem arises. As yoga incorporates meditative elements, the individual in turn, attains the peace of mind required for greater focus.
3. HAPPIER LIVING
One of the greatest outcomes to eventuate when a strong body and mind are in sync, comes having a balanced parasympathetic nervous system, which explains your ability to better relax and focus. Yoga motivates each person to focus on their breathing and to take notice of how their body responds and it's due to such that the individual achieves a restorative state, where breathing is slowed down and blood pressure is lowered.
4. BETTER POSTURE
With more flexibility and stronger muscles from regular yoga sessions, your posture too, gradually becomes better. As poor posture can lead to fatigue, back and neck pain among a wide variety of problems, strengthening and conditioning your muscles not only improves your posture, but can also prevent these various health issues.
5. A HEALTHIER DIET
If you often turn to fast food as a quick fix to your bad day, then find a new solution which your health can actually benefit from. The answer is simply yoga, because this Hindu ascetic and spiritual discipline, which amplifies your immune system's performance, may be what stops you from having that extra cookie you don't need or from choosing chips over greens. When you exert control over your body and mind, that includes making better health and lifestyle choices too.
6. DEEPER SLEEP
As it's widely known, yoga is a highly effective exercise for greater blood circulation. Yoga incorporates a wide range of poses, specifically the inverted, which motivate greater blood flow. As a result of increased blood circulation and greater relaxation for your body and mind, yoga provides an escape from the pressure of everyday life and thus, an opportunity to recharge and renew. It is here, that recent studies have indicated that the continual practice of yoga results in improved sleep. And as you should know, adequate sleep is a vital factor in any healthy life.
