As wonderful and merry as they are, the holidays can be a stressful time, but a yoga practice can help drastically during this time.
We have listed below the top three reasons to do yoga in the midst of the busy holiday season:
- Stay healthy: Winter is a time when it is easy for people to fall victim to whatever happens to be ‘going around.’ All of the stressors of the holidays only add to a person’s ability (or inability) to stay healthy. Yoga provides a good opportunity for people to take care of their minds and bodies, improving the body’s immune system and one’s mental health. It is also very easy to fall prey to all the holiday treats. Practicing yoga can help the body stay in shape and focused on staying healthy.
- Get some me-time: With family being in for the holidays and countless holiday parties, it is important to take a moment for yourself. Yoga can be the perfect time to refocus. Whether it is starting or ending the day with a yoga practice – or even a lunchtime flow – regular time to oneself is invaluable, especially during such a crazy time.
- Reduce some stress: All the family gatherings and events throughout the holidays can be wonderful, but they can also be stressful. Yoga offers a chance for bodies and minds to take a moment to relax from the stress of everyday life. It can also be an opportunity to de-stress as a family. Schedule a time the entire family can practice together and make de-stressing a new tradition!
