Surely you have heard about yoga or mindfulness at some time. Maybe you have heard the famous expression “We are the connection between body and mind”. Or “a healthy spirit in a healthy body”. In any case, these are just some of the phrases that are related to ancient practices that work to achieve the individual inner well-being.
Nowadays, some disciplines such as yoga and meditation have gained strength and have become methods to work on inner development and promote people’s physical, psychological and emotional wellbeing.
Likewise, both yoga and mindfulness represent the union between body, mind and soul and make up a whole lifestyle for those who practice them, since both practices go much further than, at first glance, it might seem.
Do you want to know the benefits of implementing these practices in your daily life? Let’s start!
Benefits of practicing yoga and mindfulness
As we were saying, both yoga and mindfulness have become very popular in the western world. This is because, in a society that is used to live fast and stressed, we are all looking for ways to feel better and to achieve this state of peace, harmony and well-being that we hear so much about everywhere.
Several studies have shown that yoga has beneficial effects on our health, since beyond working on physical postures, called asanas, it also works on breathing as an essential starting point.
Yoga teaches us to breathe correctly through various techniques that channel energy and establish a connection between body, mind and soul. These techniques focus attention on inspiration, exhalation and air retention and help us to connect with the present moment, increasing concentration levels and maintaining a conscious breath capable of balancing our emotions.
In addition to working to improve posture and increase flexibility, yoga can improve balance and coordination, strengthen bones, facilitate the digestion process, relax muscles and help us sleep better, as well as reduce anxiety and control stress levels, among others.
On the other hand, mindfulness, which is a meditation technique that consists of observing reality in the present moment, without judgment, also contributes to the proper management of stress and anxiety, since practicing it brings us closer to a state of calm and well-being that helps us to manage emotions and situations that occupy us with more confidence, temperance and security.
In addition, mindfulness helps to improve insomnia problems, promotes creativity, improves memory and concentration, increases relaxation and contributes to a state of well-being that encourages us to better enjoy the little things in life. It is what we know as “here and now”.
