Anxiety and Yoga
You can control your body
The most popular anti-insomnia remedy used by the Austrians is yoga, a controlled breathing technique that can stimulate the production of GABA, a hormone responsible for well-being, calmness and relaxation.
According to Pennsylvania University researchers, practicing yoga for 20 minutes a day, over a two-week period, can drive insomnia as effectively as sleeping pills, but it also alleviates anxiety, chronic stress and depression.
Yoga is an excellent substitute for medication but, first of all, it is important to remember that yoga is not simple. But a study published by the Indian Journal of Psychiatry explains the following benefits of yoga exercises when it comes to depression:
- To reduce anxiety and stress;
- Provides contact with mood;
- You can manage emotions more effectively;
- You will face difficult situations more easily from a psychological point of view.
At least one hour of yoga will improve mental and physical state. Normally, a yoga session can be 15 minutes to a maximum of 45 minutes.
By practising yoga you can treat many diseases, but it is particularly beneficial for those who suffer from mental disorders.
Migraines, stomach pains, heart palpitations, etc., all these symptoms can be caused by depression. By practicing yoga you improve respiratory and digestive problems, which are basically those that warn when the body is experiencing health problems.
There is nothing more than a wake-up call to the fact that there is a problem to be solved.
In addition to all this, yoga involves interacting with other people and leaving the house, things that do well and do not fuel depression. When depression occurs, everything suddenly turns into darkness and pessimism. In fact, this is not the case - it's just the way the mind decides to see the world. If you are sad, everything around will look bad and you will think that bad things happen to you always.
Yoga can make you aware that it is up to you to change this attitude. You will learn to read emotions better and be conscious of what you feel. The only way you can begin to eliminate these negative thoughts is by understanding your feelings. Yoga is sometimes combined in low doses of meditation, which undoubtedly makes this practice even more effective
