Yoga is a perfect way to refresh your body and mind
Yoga, in addition to the physical benefits we have already mentioned, gives us many emotional benefits. As we know that the human being is not only body, but also mind and there is a deep interconnection between mind and body.
It is through yoga and meditation that we get the knowledge of the mind and knowing our mind we can then, get to recognize ourselves as essence, as part of the supreme and universal being that we are.
One of the main reasons why more and more people join the practice of yoga is to find spiritual perfection or union with the Supreme Being through the postures that are performed with the body to unite with nature. This union helps us relax the soul and meditate in an indescribable way, a physical path of transformation.
Yoga can lead us to the spiritual connection and open our eyes to a philosophy of life that will lead us to make stress something that we can break and focus on positive energy, or perhaps, rid ourselves of vices or discomforts that imply grudges, anger and negativity that Prevent evolution as people. In this way yoga helps stress relief from our daily life.
Everything is based on balance; in addition we must complement this process of connection with an adequate diet and healthy mind.
There is a scientific term to describe the interaction between mind and body, it is called psychoneuroimmunology and refers to the study of how the mind affects the nervous system and immunity.
The impact of our thoughts and moods on our physical well-being is profound, and we all experience this intimate connection on a daily basis. Therefore, it should not surprise us that depressed people are more prone to respiratory tract infections.
Mental and emotional health not only affects us in being more susceptible to some diseases, but it affects our longevity. That is to say, it is possible to live longer if we have an absolute desire, for example, if an older person wishes with all his soul to live an important event and to live it no longer has another event that he wants with the same intensity, his desire to continue living can dissolve and die.
Yoga also helps us to develop the capacity for relaxation. We can give ourselves time to disconnect from the rhythm of life to protect our health and prevent the mental exhaustion we expose ourselves when we spend too much time doing what we “have to do.”
To nourish the soul we can:
- Decide to reduce stress
- Simplify our tasks and set priorities
- Have a positive attitude
- Play and have fun
- Do something for others
- Cultivate relationships
Your intention is very simple. So, just like meditation to get numerous benefits. Your mind will rest and you will get a delicious freshness, besides it is an exquisite moment to listen to the very sound of your voice and what you feel.
