The Happiness Factor: How Yoga can change your life
The things we think and the things we do can have a powerful impact on our brain, on our attitude and on our reality. It all starts with the things we tell ourselves and the way we handle these things. This is the power of positive thinking. Yoga has been proven to have a direct relationship to happiness and a positive attitude.
Our thoughts and actions actually change the chemical composition of the brain. When we practice deep breathing, relax our muscles and think positive thoughts we are actually rewiring the brain.
Yoga is all about taking what we learn on the mat...deep breathing, softening muscles, clearing the mind, living in the present moment and applying it into our daily lives. Studies have found that these techniques break bad habits, eliminate negativity and diminish stress.
Big changes don't happen overnight or change right away. Commit to a consistent yoga practice and then watch the transformation happen. Think positive thoughts, breathe deep and relax. Be patient and let the process unfold.
