Top 5 Benefits of Yoga

In pursuit of living a healthy lifestyle, there more to it than just food. With the international yoga day just around the corner, let’s talk about the contributions of yoga to your healthy well-being. Mine too.

The main aim of the international yoga day is to create or raise awareness of the many benefits of practicing yoga. Yoga is said to unify the body and the soul.
1. Builds Strength
Yoga involves you being a still posture for a certain period of time. Over time, it helps the body build strength on certain muscles.
2. Reduce stress levels
The breathing techniques involved in yoga, help in releasing body stress and tension in the body.
3. Improve flexibility
In addition to building muscle strength, yoga also helps with body flexibility. as the body changes into various position, the joints become more flexibility with no pressures applied.
4. Keeps your weight in check
This is dependent on the type and intensity level of level. The higher the intensity level, the higher your heartbeat and more calories you burn.
5. Mental wellness
Regular yoga enables you to be calmer, have a clear mind. It also relaxes the mind and improves your concentration span.

Caution
If you are pregnant or have any complications such as heart issues or diabetes, consult with your health physician and your instructor as well. This way you avoid extra damage to your vital body organs.

Thanksgiving 2016

It is that time of the year again. I have already begun this season of thanksgiving on a different note. Though I don’t live in the US, my family and I still celebrate it.

Yesterday my work day was outdoors. It was chilly and a bit of rain now and then. That is custom weather around November and December in Nairobi, Kenya. While at work, I reflect on the Thanksgiving and took note of this beautiful flower. Springing out of the bud to the beautiful flawless petals. It must be happy. Enjoying the beautiful sunshine. Like the flower, I am grateful to God, my family, friends and to all that I have met on the ‘blogsphere’.

I pray for peace and good health for all of you.

Happy Thanksgiving!
