Stress is a huge factor in life that can contribute to moodiness, anxiety, memory problems, changes in your sleep habits and many more emotional and physical symptoms. A way to curb the stress in your life and the resulting effects that it has on your daily habits is to practice yoga.
Beginning each morning with some form of yoga sets up the day to begin relaxed and at peace. Yoga will help you feel centered and will momentarily reprieve the stresses of everyday life. Meditating, breathing exercises and relaxing yoga poses are the key to empowering your day.
By focusing on yourself for a few minutes at the start of the day, you are providing yourself with more energy and resilience to take on the activities of the day with confidence and a clear mind. Meditation and yoga are great tools to open your mind to begin juggling the pressures and responsibility that each new day brings and also to plant you firmly in the present moment so that you can face moments of chaos with clarity.
