Self-Care and Wellness
One of the most important lessons we learned in 2020 is to take care of ourselves and prioritize the health and wellness in our daily life. Not only we are talking about strengthen muscles and bones, but also the mental clarity, emotional health and spiritual balance.
Yoga has been scientifically approved to reduce stress, help relieve anxiety and manage depression. However, the mindfulness yoga experience may be very different from going to the gyms for a workout because you get so much more than lifting weights and sweats, for instance.
Firstly, yoga stimulates all the sense in our body by integrating the poses with controlled breathing. Secondly, one of the ways that yoga is different from traditional exercise is that we strive to turn our senses inward instead of searching for information from the outside world. Moreover, we can increase our ability to perceive and learn where we put our energy, leading the senses towards the self by turning our awareness inward.
Here are 8 benefits of Mindfulness:
