My anti-stress yoga practice

18 JANUARY 2018

Good intentions abound, and more than ever in the first few days of the new year. But there is a big gap between theory and practice, and I can see that there is no way of channelling these intentions to establish habits that reduce my stress, which we all know is one of the main problems in the society in which we live.

If you had the opportunity to read the post “My Own Worst Enemy” on this blog, you might remember that I told you how I use the philosophy and practice of yoga to deal with those dynamics of my personality that lead me to unhealthy states of mind, such as stress. To reduce it, I have come up with a 10-minute-long personal practice based on yoga asanas and on two key aspects: synchronising the breath with movement and counting the repetitions.

It is a short but intense practice that helps me to reduce stress through physical exertion and by focusing the mind. This helps me to clear my head and stop the whirlpool of thoughts and tasks that builds up during the day and the week and ends up exhausting me. In short, with this practice, I seek to give my head a break and find peace of mind.

I hope that you find this tool useful and that you observe the mental and physical benefits. Look after every part of you!
