Benefits of Yoga and Meditation in Everyday Life

“Yoga is a light which once lit will never dim, the better you practice, the brighter your flame.”

Human beings are made up of three components – body, mind and soul corresponding these there are three needs – health, knowledge and inner peace. Health is physical need, knowledge is our psychological needs and inner peace is spiritual need when all three are present then there is harmony. Yoga provides us great relief from all our problems and tensions. The practice of the postures (Asans) strengthen the body and create a feeling of well being. From the psychological view point, yoga sharpens the intellect and aid in concentration; it steadies the emotions and encourages a caring for others.

Yoga is believed to be an ancient art that has been originated in India in the Pre-Vedic Era about sixty thousand years ago! Yoga is considered as the most favourable method to connect the individual to nature by balancing the mind and body connections. This famous exercise called Yoga is the type of activity performed through the balanced body and free mind and the soul of the individual connecting himself with the inner being and beautiful nature. In today’s busy life of tensions and frustrations, practicing yoga daily is like a boon that provides us such a healthy and active body physically and mentally too. Yoga is the most famous exercise for everyone’s life as it helps in balancing the relationship between body and mind and that’s how we stay healthy by doing yoga. The main theme of Yoga is the connection of the individual with himself and the nature. It’s the basic foundation on which the entire meditation of Yoga is built upon. It can become a physical and mental discipline of a person through regular practice. It is a form of exercise that gets better each time you practice it. Earlier, people who lived thousands of years before us were used to practicing yoga and meditation in their daily lives to live healthy and active their whole life. However on the other hand, the practice of yoga was declined day by day in such a crowded and hectic environment in which we are all living now.

Yoga is a very safe kind of ancient practice or meditation that can be practiced by anyone anytime it can even be done by children and old aged people around the globe to take all its benefits for free-of-cost. Yoga is a type of practice which can be performed to maintain a balanced body and to practice it you need to get full control over your diet, breathing, and physical posture. It was originated in India (also known as Bharat in those times), and the word Yoga is initially originated from the Sanskrit word called ‘Yuj’, which has two different meanings one is ‘Union’, and another one is ‘Discipline.’ Practicing a few Yoga steps daily teaches us how to unite or connect both Physically (Body) and Mentally (Mind). The yoga that helps to increase the memory power is called as ‘Raja Yoga’ and the yoga for physical well-being is called ‘Hatya Yoga’.

It is strongly recommended that yoga should be practiced early morning for being close to nature. It is being practiced by Hindus, Buddhas and Jains since the Early Vedic period, and they found it as a fantastic way of exercise that makes life better by controlling the mind and body. And many facts and experiences of great people also show that yoga works as medicine and can gradually treat and cure almost every disease without the need of medicine. Here are some of the great facts of yoga that help to fight many incurable diseases and stay healthy forever:

1.It helps to make any non-functional body part of the patient suffering from a particular disease to getting again functional, which is a massive buff and great help for our Modern Medical Science.

2.It also strengthens the inner and outer bodies of the individual by connecting them to Mother Earth’s natural beauty and it cannot only be said as a physical practice, but it helps humans to get control over their mental, emotional and spiritual thoughts.

3.It is a very easy method which requires only controlled slow and safe movements of the body with normal and controlled breathing.

To make people aware of yoga and its benefits all over the world, an International level event suggested by Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi and has been declared by United Nations General Assembly’s President Sam K.Kutesa to celebrate it annually on 21st June and called it as International Yoga Day.

Yoga is not only an exercise but it is like a medicine that offers a great deal of benefits for our health, body and mind. Here are some of the great health benefits of yoga which have helped people over millions of years:

1.It is very beneficial and helpful in improving the flexibility of muscles.

2.Correcting the posture of our body.

3.It helps to digest the food that we eat by secreting enzymes that help in the breakdown of food.

4.Helps to reduce our body weight by burning the fats.

5.Last but not the least, yoga is a very good exercise to help in connecting you with your inner being and the society around you.

These are just a few of the variety of benefits that yoga gives. Rather than these, there are many other uncountable benefits of yoga.

To conclude, yoga is an ancient art that originated in India during the Pre-Vedic Era for mental and physical well-being. In today’s modern world which is full of stress and confusion, there are a lot of health benefits that yoga and meditation could provide in our day-to-day life.
