Many of us are living an over scheduled existence. Week to week we juggle work, family, commitments and responsibilities. Often self-care is the last priority because we think we can go without. Yet statistics of sick days due to illness or stress attest to the opposite. A life without balance is not sustainable. The concept of wellness is becoming more prevalent in social discourse as we recognize the necessity and long term benefits of incorporating well-being practices into our lives.
Yoga offers a holistic approach. This ancient practice takes into account the whole person- physical and mental wellness. The physical benefits of yoga are numerous including increased flexibility, energy, muscular strength, a stronger immune system, pain relief and improved sleep. The mental benefits of yoga may be less known. Yoga was created as a philosophy for living to our fullest potential. Hatha yoga, the physical practice, was created as a means of quieting the mind in preparation for meditation. The science community is learning how meditation has lasting effects on our brain function. The physical practice on the mat is dedicated to breath and movement and being present. We give our minds a vacation from the constant noise of our inner voice, the replaying of past events and the planning of future what ifs. Connecting to the body can redirect our attention to the present moment clearing the mind and creating space in what may feel like a cluttered existence. Practicing mindfulness promotes mental clarity which affects all aspects of our lives. A well rested body and mind will function at a higher level of efficiency. There’s no quick fix for a stressed out tired body and mind. There is no substitute for wellness practices. A regular discipline of physical movement and mindful practices can help to create more of a balance.
