When I am anxious or stressed, I drink a litre of . . . air.
Yoga is a technique to become present. I don’t know about everyone else, but my brain constantly leaves this moment and drifts to tomorrow, a year from now, thirty years from now and it gives me a headache! Yoga really brings me back to ‘now’. What a relief.
This morning I felt uneasy. Yoga practice (sadhana) brought me back to rational thinking. The body can help or hinder the brain, just like the brain can better or worsen the body. It’s all inter connected. When you have mental stress it will transfer to your immune system and hormonal system etc.
When my body feels decompressed and strong, my brain follows.
We all have mental stress don’t we, maybe just a thread of it, or maybe a ginormous mass. What will you do with it?
