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.
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.
Anything that anyone can do, I can do it too.
Nothing in this world is impossible. You are beyond the impossible. What has been done earlier, can be done better. There is always room for improvement. Look at the evolution of the electric bulb and other innovations done in the 19th century and even the 18th century. People have improved on them and change the world. That which has not been done is waiting to be done or discover by someone else. Why not do it yourself? Take the leap of faith and do it.
What is hindering you from your success is you. Every is an opportunity but what makes the difference is what you get or make of it.
Reach out and Grasp the opportunity.
Loving yourself is the greatest gift that you can give yourself. I know at times it might be hard especially when you are facing challenges and nothing seems to go right. Don’t be too hard on yourself.
Here are top six reasons to love yourself:
- You are 300% unique. I know I went overboard but you are unique. There is no else who has your smile or your laugh.
- Accepting yourself in your impact skin feels great. Self-love enables you to get a feeling of contentment and boost self-acceptance.
- You have been blessed with your skin, so wear it comfortably.
- Law of attraction is real. If you love yourself, you also attract people who love you as well.
- “Hate is too great of a burden to bear,” Martin Luther King, Jr. said. Lighten up and love you all the way.
- People come in and out of your life, and what are you left with? YOU. Coping alone is best with self –love.
It’s not a requirement that people love you but it is a blessing if they do. Everything springs from self-love.
Love x Love,
Follow your passion. The sky is the limit. The only limitation you have to your dreams is yourself.
There is nothing wrong with following one’s passion. Everyone needs a passion. But we live in a world constantly in flux with circumstances we often cannot control. It is when people conflate passion with purpose that they end up in a situation like my friend. We should live each day with a purpose – doing the best job possible within our human power. A person who lives with a purpose does not live in a fantasy world. They have aspirations, but they take concrete steps each day to realose tehir pasion.That is really living a life with a purpose. i would like to sign off with aquote;

Stop beating your self about the past and ask yourself what I am learning?
Life is a journey, and learning is a journey of life. therefore, life is a journey. Enjoy the journey and not the destination.
I will end the post with a quote:

It has been a year and a couple of months into blogging. Being sort of a ‘newbie’, I have had to learn lots of stuff here and there. It has been a journey of ups and downs. And in this journey I am glad that my posts have touched many and many have also enjoyed. I would also like to appreciate all people who have taken time to advise me on some stuff: both on blogging and living life.
My eyes are on the journey; to enjoy and learn. I am Unfinished I am work in progress.I am glad that my voice matters. Before I say goodbye, here is a quote:
“I’m inspired by so many blogs and the people behind them. I now have a voice.” — Annette’s Place
