Happier, stronger, more connected, healthier and free are examples of the fundamental reasons most of us practice yoga. However, no matter how beneficial a practice is in each and every aspect of your life, you can get stuck. Sometimes you may end up slacking off from doing yoga completely or just practicing once in week.
If I am talking about you, then you already know what I am about to say; you need a boost to get into the yoga groove now! You have to check yourself before you completely wreck yourself! Let’s briefly take a look at some signs that show that you really need yoga ASAP:
You’re having a poor posture
Most of us have office jobs which require us to sit for hours, hunched over a computer screen. You can find yourself having some back pains and a sore neck since you lack the ability to keep your spine properly aligned. Yoga will cultivate flexibility and strength and this will make way for proper alignment.
You’re unable to control your emotions
Are you overreacting over everything? Are your responses completely out of proportion and you sometimes find yourself crying, yelling or just not able to handle your emotions? Responses such as these occur when you lack inner peace. Yoga works to release tension while helping you to calm your nerves. This helps you to handle different situations appropriately.
You are experiencing irregular breathing
You could find yourself breathing very shallow or even not breathing for moments at times. Yoga will help you to pay close attention to your breath. You will be able to take deep inhales and exhales. Our lungs are like balloons so the more you breathe deeply, the more you expand them and hold more air. Increased lung capacity equals to deeper breaths that yield a calmer mind.
You are opting for coping mechanisms that are unhealthy
Its normal for the going to get tough and let’s be real, this happens to everyone at some point in life. People react in different ways, for instance, there are those who turn to booze or food to mask their imbalances. If you find yourself in such habits, just ask yourself if you are helping your body. Unlike these practices, yoga is a lifelong practice that will assist you to be happy while you stay healthy. What journey is more important than this?
Your body is stiff
From the moment you wake up, nothing is capable of shaking the stiffness that is encapsulating your body. Turning quickly, bending over or reaching for things can sound painful. Yoga poses will stretch your muscles and assist you to move with grace, more flexibility and agility.
