Yoga. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear that word? Is it something like hippie or maybe relaxation?
Yoga can be defined as “a system of exercises for attaining bodily or mental control and well-being.”1 It’s a time where one can focus on breathing and relaxation while also getting a workout in. I personally love to do yoga when starting my morning. I’ve seen that it puts me in a better mood and gives me a more positive outlook on my day.
There’s different ways one can get involved in yoga. A free way is watching some clips on Youtube like…
(Yoga with Adriene is one of my favorites)
You can also attend yoga classes at local gyms and search for specific yoga centers in your area. However, both of these options will most likely include a fee of some sort.
Yoga can be so beneficial for your mental and physical health. I challenge you to just try 10 minutes of yoga a couple days a week and even keep a personal journal to see if your mood, outlook on life, and physical well-being changes.
