Who said stress is an adult thing? In today’s time, it seems to be more millennial-friendly. Social violence, political turmoil, personal problems, cut-throat competition are some of the major causes of stress among teenagers and young adults. In fact, according to studies, the young generation seems to be far more stressed than their adults.
The American Psychological Association says college students are more anxious than before. And, more than half of the generation reports that they have lain awake at night due to stress. Accompanying the stress are physical, psychical, and emotional problems along with unhealthy behaviors, high level of anger, addiction to alcohol and smoking.
Of all the catastrophe associated with stress, depression is the deadliest. It affects a person on all the three levels– body, mind, and soul.
Mindfulness is a path to fight stress and ordeals. It is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence to prevent depression. Mindfulness is getting to know ourselves moment by moment and learning to live in the present.
Yoga is the millennium science of mindfulness. It includes body postures, breathing exercises, and meditation that help the racing mind to slow down, to relax the tired body, and reconnect us with our senses. Incorporating yoga into daily life can protect the young generation from the detrimental health effects of stress and anxiety. Practicing yoga every single day can influence the way you think, feel, and behave in a positive manner.
The stressed generation can step into a new world with yoga.
In a life of stress, live a moment of peace and become the happier, healthiest, best version of yourself with Yoga.
