Balancing The Line Between Work And Home Through Yoga

Yoga is thought to be the most effective therapy for achieving balance

Fast-paced, stressful, overwhelming - these are a few repetitive words that have become a part of our lexicon today. In such an environment, striking a balance between work and our personal lives has never been more important. Creating a harmonious work-life balance or work-life integration is critical to improving our physical, mental and emotional health and it can have cascading positive effects on all aspects of our lives.

Yoga is thought to be the most effective therapy for achieving this balance. Exuding stress-relieving and calming properties, Yoga's breathing and mental techniques allow you to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Interestingly, yoga science is essentially a mind-body medical method with a curative effect on all aspects of life. Yoga helps in achieving equilibrium and improving psychological well-being, by focusing on neurophysiological and neurocognitive systems.

Daily Yoga practice not only keeps you active and burns calories, but it also has a spiritual and emotional component that can help you deal with other life challenges that may be interfering with your work-life balance.

Yoga practitioners can achieve a state of clarity regarding their body and mind's expectations. It is believed that if you can balance your mind, you will be able to power through the obstacles or inevitable stress in an efficient and peaceful manner.

There may be days when you may be experiencing anxiety and unhappiness because you are incapable of dealing with tough situations. Why not sit in the Lotus position or perform a backbend? According to several studies, persistent yoga practice alleviates sadness and leads to a considerable rise in serotonin levels, i.e. it helps you feel happier. Reflecting an ideal way of life, yoga is a holistic practice that focuses on restoring balance to one's existence. The word Yoga in itself means “yuj” or Connections. It works on connecting the mind and body so as to bring a total balance in life. So it is important that along with physical yoga one also focused on mental yoga. Yoga practitioners will attest that this form of mind-body exercise inspires a life of balance, flexibility, and change, as opposed to one of stasis or symmetry.

It is important to remember that yoga postures are defined by the concept of sthira (stability and strength) and sukha (ease, openness, and comfort). In order to find a sense of balance in your life and in your yoga poses, it is important to examine these two notions. For example, working is excellent and necessary, but building a fulfilling life is just as crucial. A person's work as sthira, stability, and other aspects of their life might be viewed in this way.

Yoga also improves concentration and reduces anxiety by synchronising your thoughts with your surroundings. Concentration increases productivity and inspires perfection. Mental alacrity allows you to identify problems faster, do things correctly, and come up with creative solutions. Yoga can thus be a viable option for gently and smoothly achieving work-life balance and enjoying the best of both worlds.
