Yoga may be just the thing you need to break out of your funk! Keep reading to find out how yoga can help.
Yoga can help you break out of your funk! Here’s how…
Yoga Activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System
This is an important fact to know because the parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for slowing us down and it encourages our bodies to relax, boost our immune systems, and it is also responsible for helping us sleep better. Many times when we feel sick, tired, and fatigued, we just need to give our body time to relax, de-stress, and we need sleep.
Yoga Can Help to Detoxify Your Body
The various poses used in yoga were designed for specific functions. The different stretches and twists are good for lengthening and strengthening your body but they may also be a natural way to encourage detoxification, especially as blood flow increases. Detoxifying your body may help you feel healthier and less sluggish.
Yoga May Help Release Happy Hormones
Like most exercise, when you begin moving, your body begins to produce and release endorphins which are the “happy” hormones that cause you to feel calm and happy. Endorphins may also help to regulate pain.
Kick sickness, fatigues, and sadness to the curb. Do everything you can to lift your mood and your spirits including yoga. Yoga is an ideal exercise because anyone can do it! Every pose has modifications making it a versatile exercise regardless of your athletic abilities.
