Be an observer of your flow of thoughts by not resisting them initially and letting them flow. Gradually, keep shifting your awareness to your breathing until you reach a point where your complete focus is on your inhalation and exhalation with your mind almost completely devoid of thoughts.

Anger Management

Anger is an emotion that needs to be channelized by the power of yoga and spirituality. Anger only hurts the person who experiences it. Find positive ways as an outlet for this emotion of anger. The solution to this lies in pursuing the path of yoga and spirituality. Through pranayama, asanas, meditation, and other yogic practices, we can help ourselves out in such situations.

Power of Pranayama

When we add a conscious effort to our breath and do it in a focussed way, it impacts each and every single organ, muscle, and system in the body. When the body becomes balanced; our thoughts, and actions become aligned. The breath relaxes the body and makes the body alert. Our emotions can be brought under control by our breathing.

Stay away from Stress

Yoga holds the key to any stress-related disorder with asanas for the body, pranayama for the breath, and meditation for the mind. Yoga helps you gain better control over your own body, mind, and soul thereby improving your response to challenges and hard times in life.

The practice of Yoga helps you become aware of your own body and breath. Through this strengthened connection to the self, you are better in synch with your mental well-being and this is part of the self-care process.
