1. Yoga creates a healthy mindset, helping you become more mindful and connected to your body
Every time you practice yoga, you practice not only for your physical being, but for your mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being. Through this journey, you become more aware of what is good for you and what’s not. You align with your body and discover what foods make you feel energetic and what foods make you feel tired. Yoga will show you that you can do anything if you set your mind to it. You will begin to notice that the cleaner you eat, the better you feel as you go through your day and the stronger your yoga practice will be. If you can nourish your body with natures raw medicine (plants, veggies, fruits, grains, and natural substances) you will feel the healthiest and most energetic that you have ever felt.
2. Yoga promotes healthy habits
Yoga teaches you to connect with your breath. As you connect to your breath, you can use your breath to help get you through any difficult times. Yoga also promotes healthy eating habits by encouraging connection, stillness, and silence. Through the yoga practice, you have moments of stillness and silence. It is within these moments, that your body will subtly speak to you and you will discover how to properly and effectively nourish your temple.
3. Yoga cures addictions and bad habits
As you go through your yoga practice, you hold challenging postures, and through this you learn to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Each posture makes new connections which shapes your brain making you more likely to repeat that action in the future; that’s how habits are created.
As you start doing yoga more regularly, a brand new pattern in your brain is created. This pattern becomes immensely stronger than the old patterns that are in charge of any bad habits. Practicing yoga on a daily basis is a habit that brings a range of other healthy habits, which makes you feel so much happier and content. The more you practice yoga, the quicker you release your bad habits and start treating your body the way it should truly be treated.
If you are wanting to change your eating habits, as well as your overall life style; the first step to success is to make it to your yoga mat! The benefits of yoga will naturally blossom into your life; creating a healthy mind, body, spirit.
