To keep things simple, every single moment of our life is connected with yoga. Be it breathing, sleeping, sitting, standing, eating and drinking, emotions or thoughts.
New Delhi: In 2022, one does not need to be given an introduction about yoga. More so, when the world today is celebrating International Yoga Day and both profitable and non-profitable institutions are trying their best to propagate yoga for better understanding among people.
However, it is important to know how exactly does yoga help us. To keep things simple, every single moment of our life is connected with yoga. Be it breathing, sleeping, sitting, standing, eating and drinking, emotions or thoughts, everything is directly or indirectly related to yoga as it is a way of life.
Let’s have a look at how yoga can help us.
Sleep disorder and how yoga can help
These days every other individual has trouble sleeping and it is needless to say that sleeplessness invites many diseases like physical and organ disorders and even mental illnesses. Sleeplessness affects the stomach too with all the chemical reactions happening in our alimentary system getting affected which leads to organic disbalances. Practicing yoga on a daily basis can bring back harmony in the body. Yoga also revitalises the nervous system, blood and lymphatic circulations. Also helps in not developing bone joint disorders.
