Your yoga practice provides you with an abundance of health benefits– less stress, an ability to cope with life’s problems. You may even get to live longer. So with this in mind, what’s holding you back from falling in love with yoga? If you are just starting out, there are some benefits you may not know about.
Life can throw a whole series of stressors your way, and when it does, it’s easy to lose the ability to fall asleep and to stay asleep throughout the night. When sleep patterns are interrupted, fatigue quickly sets in and irritability, as well as a lack of focus, quickly follow. Everyday tasks suddenly become a lot more difficult. Even your memory levels will dip at times. If you worry about not sleeping, then guess what? Anxiousness only makes it worse. You’ll find it impossible to wind down or switch off at night. Therefore, your sleep patterns are of the utmost importance.
If you exercise each day, this will help. Yoga, in its gentle format and moving meditative state helps to alleviate inner tension and clears your mind in the process. You will find it so much easier to let go of the stresses and strains of the day. As a result, sleep improves and you’ll feel great in the morning.
