Age- old mantra to retain beauty of body and mind
Have you ever wondered ‘Why our ancestors have had such a long, healthy life’? How come they were so fit? What are we missing on? Well, let me tell you honestly; we’re missing on a lot! The food we eat, the kind of environment we reside in, our habits, our lifestyle all contributes to degrade our health. True, we can’t change everything but surely we can alter bad habits and replace them with good ones, avoid munching junk food and grab on some fresh fruits and veggies, incorporate yoga and other forms of physical activities in our routine. Now, a question might have popped up; which one should we consider – gym or yoga asana? Let me make it clear, each one has its own benefits. But I would prefer yoga asana rather than gym. You may be thinking, why am I preferring yoga asana? Here’s an answer. Yoga asana brings harmony in mind, body and soul.
It soothes our body; whereas, gym focuses on getting our body in shape. A gym workout may leave you feel exhausted and tired but practicing yoga asana may instantly boost energy. You’ll feel rejuvenated. Yoga asana will ease my aches and pains; whereas, gym workout may cause strain which may lead to injuries and soreness.
