A typical week can mean balancing work, kids, school, sports, appointments, family and a lot more! Everyday life is hectic and, amidst this, you are likely to feel frazzled.
Challenging tasks throughout the day stimulate the sympathetic nervous system, evoking the body’s fight-or-flight response. So, while preparing for survival, your body puts a hold on all the other regular routine functions like proper digestion and rejuvenation.
Yoga creates an opposite reaction in the body. It stimulates and activates the parasympathetic nervous system, thus provoking the rest-and-digest response in the body. As a result, all of the body’s organs are restored to normal functioning, and your mind and body are perfectly in sync!
So, to beat the frazzled existence of a busy lifestyle and the resulting health impacts, it’s time you hit the yoga mat!
Don’t worry if you’re a newbie in this field. Everyone’s got to start somewhere. Even if it is your first day, all you have to do is put on some loose-fitting clothes, grab a yoga mat and follow the beginner program with the basic yoga postures.
