The continuous demands of daily life are enough to make anyone feel stressed and tired. One feels so exhausted that the desire to just sit back and relax becomes overwhelming. Women feel like this quite a few times – to have someone else cook and clean for them, atleast only for a few days – while you can spend some time with your friends or just stay at home and relax until you have regained your energy and strength. A woman is too busy to find time for herself. Family and society with their commitments responsibilities and obligations are always the top priorities. There is simply no time left for you. However, difficult as it may seem, it is imperative that you find time for yourself everyday in order to take care of your health and spirits. Neglecting to pamper yourself and just letting things go will ruin your mood at the end of the day. There is much more to life than going to work, coming back home, eating, having a shower and going to bed. Perhaps you have heard about yoga from your friend or acquaintances. If you feel that you are having the above mentioned problems then yoga is definitely a good thing for you. It keeps you fit physically as well as helps in relaxing your body and mind at the end of a busy schedule. There are three ways in which yoga can help you get rid of stress and give you the feeling of a more controlled and satisfied life. 1. It stretches your body and releases the tension that accumulates after spending the whole day sitting on a chair and working on a computer. Only a few minutes of attaining yoga postures before going to bed will help your body unwind and release all the tension. 2 Breathing patterns offered by yoga will calm your mind and keep it focused. At the same time it will relax all the muscles in your body. One of the fundamental concepts of yoga is to breathe properly. Yoga helps you to breathe deeply and slowly. Such breathing lets you use all the breathing organs in your body. You can also use this breathing technique in your office while you are busy in a project or a presentation. Just take two to three minutes alone and breathe deeply with your nose. This will clear your mind and help you concentrate on the job at at hand. 3 The meditation technique offered by Yoga helps you in attaining inner peace and emotional balance. Meditation involves concentrating your thoughts on a single positive thought. This helps you get rid of physical as well as emotional stress. Generally, when you are in a jam, your mind is focusing on the negative aspects of the issue. Practicing meditation helps you shift your focus to the positive aspects. Meditation can be performed in any quiet place by closing your eyes and observing you breathe. With yoga, it is possible to get rid of your daily tensions and experience a stress free and healthy life everyday.
