Yoga in Our Daily Life
Whether it is good physical health, mental alacrity, emotional balance, freedom from stress or good interpersonal relations, Yoga has almost everything on offer. In today’s fast life Yoga has become all the more important because of our exposure to various stresses and hazards with very little or no time to recuperate from its after-effects. Some of the benefits of Yoga in our daily life are:
health is the greatest wealth. Good physical and mental health is indispensable for fulfillment of worldly desires and achievement of goals. One also needs good health for spiritual orientation. Thus, on the plank of perfect health one balances the two dimensions of life i.e. spiritual and secular.
various Yoga techniques like asana, pranayama, meditation, boost immunity by improving the blood circulation and flushing out the toxins from the body. Yoga improves assimilation of nutrients, elimination of wastes and invokes vital energy. All contributes to the improvement in immunity, helping us to stay healthy.
one of the greatest contributions of Yoga in modern life is its concrete solutions to the problem of stress. Yoga equips an individual with ready to use skills to fight stress through its holistic knowledge of mind and body. In the absence of stress an individual is relaxed at body and alert at mind.
Yoga is essentially a spiritual discipline which improves our power of intuition. Yoga checks our predisposition on left brain hemisphere for solving life problems and activates the right brain hemisphere for intuitive ability. With intuition comes the spontaneity in thought and action, which reduces constraints and tensions.
Yoga broadens one’s outlook in life to better deal with ever-changing external situations. It breaks the rigid intellectual boundaries and makes one more receptive to new ideas. A broad outlook in life helps a person to adapt to new situations and cope better with unfamiliar circumstances.
