All it takes is five minutes in the morning to feel more energized and have a moment of peace and clarity before tackling the day.
According to Timothy Mccall, M.D., you can learn to quiet your mind with yoga as the practicing of yoga helps you slow down the mental loops of frustration, regret, anger, fear, and desire that often causes stress (1).
Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines physical poses, controlled breathing, and meditation and relaxation. Yoga helps reduce stress because it promotes relaxation, which is the opposite of stress.
Buddha once said "What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create."
Our mind is full of power to attract and create what we internally meditate on.
Starting off your morning right with this five-minute yoga sequence will not only make you feel more energized and powered up but also leave a positive effect on your mind and set you out to materialize what you set your mind to create.
That's the power of yoga and its practice.
Let's also not forget yoga is all about breathing. Learn to breathe through different poses and be aware of how it opens up your lungs and circulates your energy.
Yoga is without a doubt a physical practice with its bodily merits. In addition to the yoga benefits mentioned above, this ancient practice bears important health benefits.
