The Buzz: Embracing Mindfulness + A New Giveaway!August 18, 2018
This week, we’ve talked a lot about wellness, from keeping the romance alive and well to National Relaxation Day and how to give yourself the self-care you deserve.
And while it’s easy to talk about these topics, it can be harder to truly be mindful of their presence in our daily lives. How many of you actually make diligent self-care a part of your routine or take the time to make sure your significant other is feeling needed?
Sometimes, we must take a step back and embrace mindfulness in order to strengthen our mind, and furthermore, our actions. One way I’ve found to do this is through the practice of yoga. Yoga allows me to escape everyday life and become one with my thoughts. It is only then that I am more mindful of where I am on my journey, where I’d like to go, and who I want by my side through it all.
The Many Benefits of Yoga
Did you know that yoga isn’t just a form of meditation? It also has the ability to improve balance, stave off age-related mental decline and even prevent inflammation. These are immense health benefits, on top of the fact that yoga gives us each the opportunity to slow down and take some time for ourselves.
However, you may think this age-old practice is intimidating or that the poses are too complicated. But think again! Yoga really is for everyone, and this article from the New York Times proves it! So indulge in a little self-care, roll out your yoga mat (you can find some great, fairly inexpensive ones here and here) and embrace the beautiful combination of physical and mental benefits this practice provides.
