Yoga has proven its miracle through the ages and in the modern days it has become equally important as it provides mental peace in busy life

The beginning of Yoga dates back to around 5,000 years, which originated in Northern India. Yoga is purely a spiritual discipline, which aims to unite the body and mind. Lord Shiva is known as the first Yogi or Adiyogi and Yoga has been passed down to us from generations since then. My story about inculcating Yoga into my daily routine is quite intriguing. I got an internship in my dream city, where I always wanted to go. Shortly in a while I got sick there and had to return home, due to which I was unable to complete my internship. After a few months, I got a job offer from a company in the same city. I was very happy and very excited to go there. But this time I got sick even before going. I was sick for almost a month and my illness has left me shallow from within and shook my confidence deeply. I planned to take a job in my hometown as I was very weak from within. My doctor uncle who happened to be my Father’s friend advised me to do Yoga. The one month of my illness has tormented me not only physically but emotionally too. I recalled my internship days when I had to leave it because I got sick and now at the threshold of my career another disease toppled me down. I could risk it all for my career but I can’t let anything (which is under my control)come in the way of my career, especially my health, which is completely in my hand. So, that’s when I started practicing Yoga and implanted it in my everyday tasks.

My Yoga journey has taught me many things on the way and has helped me most of the time and made me realize a lot of things. Most of the time Yoga helped me to control my anger. One of the times was when my boss was trying to be a knob-head. It would mostly happen that my boss would shake my confidence and lower my self-esteem but Yoga was the only thing that would give me enough energy for the whole day to tolerate such bullshit people at work. And to mention indispensably, my friend (Shreya) also helped me a lot. We got together really well and ended out of the quagmire together. Anyways, this one month of the job made me more clear on what my dreams are and what I want from life.

So as you can see, that I’ve only benefitted from Yoga, except for the little aches that happen during the initial stage, which vanishes away with consistency. There are numerous benefits of Yoga and I’m going to share some of them in the following points. Some of the points will focus more on feminity, after all being a girl is not an easy job. So, here we go :

  1. 1. BRINGS POSITIVITY AND BOOSTS YOUR CONFIDENCE: Getting up in the morning and gushing in the pure air within your lungs, not only brings positivity to your life but also boosts confidence within. Doing Yoga in the open environment works miracle and also keeps you positive for the day ahead.
  2. 2. BUILDS FLEXIBILITY AND STRENGTH: Certain Yoga poses require quite a bit amount of flexibility and strength. And trust me if you are starting Yoga afresh in your twenties it requires you to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Consistency is the key to achieving flexibility and strength, and it also comes in handy for girls. You can crush the inguen of the goon who eve-teases you, whenever and wherever.
  3. 3. KEEPS THE DISEASES AT BAY: Yoga helps to keep various diseases at bay. It helps in balanced metabolism which is very important for your overall weight. It improves your digestion which in turn saves you from various digestion related problems. Many controlled breathing exercises helps you to tackle with menstruation-related problems like PCOS and PCOD. Many girls have been able to normalize their periods by being ‘Pranayam’ and ‘Anulom Vilom’ have pleasing effects during menstruation. The regular practice of Yoga also helps eliminate the problem of Arthritis, which is a common problem in the later stage of life.
  4. 4. HELPS YOU MAINTAIN A GOOD POSTURE: You may have a wobbly head which is always out of the sequence or a stomach that enters a room before you do, despite being slim. Yoga helps you eliminate all these problems by helping you maintain a good posture. A good posture helps you look good and feel confident under your skin.
  5. 5. HEALTHY LIFESTYLE: When you inculcate Yoga in your daily routine, you’ll always try to eat healthy, keep your space and environment clean. You won’t go over gobbling up junks, after a mindful Yoga session. Yoga helps you to control your cravings and settle for a healthy lifestyle which proves to be a beneficial decision in the long-run.
  6. 6. CONNECTS YOU TO YOUR SOUL: The main purpose of Yoga is to connect you to your soul, so you can understand and know what you are. In the end, you always end up happy after a Yoga session. It is a soulful act.

Coming towards the end, I would like to tell you that Yoga is a slow process and requires a lot of patience and consistency. You won’t notice the change physically from the first day, but you’ll deeply feel it from within, emotionally and mentally. Yoga keeps you fit from your body and your mind too. Yoga doesn’t require you to be perfect, but it only requires you to feel perfect under your skin. After all, beauty lies in imperfection. I hope that my words of wisdom motivate you to get into a good job and help you change your life, your way, towards the betterment of you.
