How Yoga And Meditation Can Help Relieve Stress

July 18, 2016 – 2:55 pm | No Comment

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s no surprise that the number of people suffering from anxiety and stress is steadily on the increase. Work and home commitments, financial worries, watching current world events and the stress and pressure of everyday life can soon add up, causing people to feel overrun with stress and worry. Keeping on top of stress and anxiety is absolutely imperative, in order to manage it and not allow it to take over your life. However, this can often be more difficult than it sounds. One of the most popular methods for managing stress and anxiety is through yoga and meditation – two practices which hold a number of further health benefits.

Relaxation
The act of meditation is well-known for its ability to encourage relaxation and help you to feel more centered and in control. Mindfulness meditation is often prescribed by doctors and other health practitioners as a method of treatment for mental health conditions, such as anxiety disorder and depression due to its high effectivity in helping those who practice it to feel more grounded and better able to manage their stress levels. If you are feeling stressed out more often than usual and find it hard to unwind and relax, practicing meditation and yoga can definitely help you to regain control. If you get the chance to take a break, a yoga and meditation retreat can be a great choice. There are some truly great places to visit. For example, if you are in the Miami area, you can check Inhale Miami for a ton of great yoga studios.

Better Health

Stress and anxiety can be directly linked to your physical health. If you are not in the best shape physically, it can put you at a higher risk of developing problems with anxiety, worry and stress. Keeping yourself fit and healthy helps to release ‘feel good’ hormones into your bloodstream, relieving feelings of depression and stress. Practicing yoga is an awesome way to stay in shape and good health, and can definitely help you to feel better both physically and emotionally. The health benefits of yoga include relief from joint and muscle pain and better sleep, both of which can help you to feel more refreshed throughout the day and give you better control over your stress levels.

Focusing on Inner Strength

Both yoga and meditation go hand in hand when it comes to focusing on your inner strength. Practicing meditation allows you to access your ‘chakra’, an inner strength which allows you to face past fears and trauma, overwhelming phobias, frustrations, stress, and the challenges of everyday life. Meditation and yoga both encourage deep breathing and relaxation exercises to help regulate your body and mind and put you back in control over the stress and worry in your life. Simply practicing yoga or meditation for a short period each day can help to regulate your breathing and relax the body. Not only that, but the techniques that you learn from yoga and meditation can come in handy in particularly stressful situations, allowing you to regain control.

Stress and anxiety can be serious problems for many people. If you’re feeling particularly stressed, yoga and meditation can be an amazing remedy.
