As a student, teacher and/or parent, you need to find ways to keep yourself physically and mentally healthy. Today we are sitting most of the times either in front of laptops or televisions or we are using mobiles/tablets/ipads while seated. We travel by car to most places. Hence the lack of physical mobility has resulted in poor muscle health, brain fatigue and tired bodies. One way of keeping yourself active is by doing regular exercise like yoga.
Yoga has been one of my favorite ways to unwind and relax. It has taught me patience and balance and equipped me with strategies to calm myself during stressful situations. From weight loss to controlling my blood pressure, it has been quite a blessing for me!
