Yoga for a Peaceful Mind

 Yoga can contribute to bringing in more awareness, reduces stress, and increase concentration. It is also known to improve mood and behaviour. Simple practices of breathing and meditation can have a profound impact on UR mental well-being.

A simple chant of ‘OM’ can release the negative vibes off the body. Studies prove that the chant of OM reduces stress and brings blood pressure down. Meditation releases nitric oxide in the body which in turn relaxes the blood vessels and increases the blood flow to different parts.

Ensure to meditate every day. To begin with, sit in a calm, undistracted place. Close UR eyes gently. Inhale slow. And exhale deep with the hymn ‘om’. Take one step at a time and increase the period of your meditation day by day. You feel better and calm.

Incorporate these practices of yoga and boost UR physical and mental health.
