Yoga Made me a Better Person
My first yoga was when I was in the 3rd year of engineering vacation and I was going through difficult times. One of my friends suggested me to do yoga that helps to keep a calm mind and relieve from all the stress. I joined yoga classes during the vacation of two months. This is when I could appreciate what yoga could do to us. Yoga taught me how to control my emotions, mind and keep up with the stress. We can’t change the situation, but we can choose how to deal with it.
My day starts at 5.30am every day and ends at 11:30 pm. If I am not going to spend any time on my health, I guess it would be a disaster in the long run. I do yoga alternate days with the running/gym. I make sure somehow my day as an hour for my physical fitness. That keeps my spirits high and also energy to perform at my best. Yoga is not about being able to perform complicated movements and postures. It is a comprehensive approach to mental and physical health, as well as individual well-being and personal growth. Yoga is the extended concept of working peacefully in the midst of hectic work life in a corporate environment.
