There’s a saying: “If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place” that kind of sums up practicing, but also living yoga lifestyle. Yoga focuses on a perfect balance between body, mind, and spirit and this balance is essential in every aspect of your life to achieve your goals, but also to make sure your goals truly reflect you and your wishes. In other words, to live your life for real and to make sure your life is truly your authentic creation, you need to have these three aspects balanced. If you want to integrate yoga philosophy and style into your life really, you should bring yoga outside the practicing studio. Here are some ideas on how to apply yoga to various routine activities.
Start eating in the yoga way
Proper diet truly is the best way to be healthy in the long run. As for everything else in life, yoga promotes physical and mental balance when it comes to food too. Liste to your body carefully and eat only when the body says so. Analyze your daily meals and the quality of your routine food. Always bring more leafy vegetables and sufficient amount of proteins. Don’t forget about the high importance of hydration. Fast food and soft drinks are directly opposite to the basic idea of yoga lifestyle, so skip them. Take your time to eat meals in the piece, with patience, to chew your food, to enjoy the flavor and to focus onto the eating process.
Yoga improves the quality of sleeping
Stick to the disciplined daily schedule and go to bed at the pretty much same time of a day. Spare 10 to 15 minutes before going to bed to practice several yoga poses and postures designed to calm your metabolism and thinking and to prepare you for a restful night. These poses are particularly focused on breathing, so the quality of your sleep will be improved.
Take yoga with you into office
Since modern lifestyle often includes 8 hours of hard and stressful working, sometimes, even more, taking short breaks during work to practice yoga will bring dozens of benefits. It will keep your body energized, especially if you spend your working hours sitting in front of the screen. It will keep you focused, concentrated and fully awake. It will also decrease daily levels of stress, protecting your overall health and enabling you to come home not feeling drained after work.
