Yoga is a great ally for your body and mind and, if you practice it first thing, even better for your well being.
To start the day well, with mind and body prepared in a state of well being, you should take a few minutes a day to practice yoga.
Then do some movements to warm up your body a little, any movement you feel helps to stretch those tighter areas.
Benefits of yoga in the morning
It activates your muscles and joints, making your body more relaxed for the rest of the day. This is important because body and mind are connected: if your body is tense, your mind will be too.
Conscious breathing will not only awaken your body but also your mind. Being present in the here and now, instead of thinking about all the tasks ahead of you and getting overwhelmed earlier than necessary, will help you to face the day in a positive way.
It relieves stress and anxiety. Practicing yoga releases endorphins, better known as the happiness hormone. And if you do it in the morning instead of in the afternoon, you can enjoy the feeling of relaxation throughout the day.
It increases the body's energy, as well as positive energy and a good mood. The benefits of morning yoga work like a chain that will make you see your day from another perspective and will increase your sense of well-being.
Yoga, like any other sport or discipline, requires constancy and self-knowledge. Practicing in the morning or in the afternoon, yoga will help you grow on a physical and personal level. But doing it in the morning will help you to be much more aware of your body and mind during the practice and will give another color to your day.
In short, with just 10 minutes a day of morning yoga, you will reduce stress and improve your physical and health levels. I encourage you to add this yoga routine to your mornings, which will help you achieve a lifestyle focused on inner peace.
