To live in harmony with oneself and the environment is the wish of every human. However, in modern times, greater physical and emotional demands are constantly placed upon many areas of life.
The word “Yoga” originates from Sanskrit and means “to join, to unite”. Yoga exercises have a holistic effect and bring body, mind, consciousness, and soul into balance.
Yoga in Daily Life is a system of practice consisting of eight levels of development in the areas of physical, mental, social and spiritual health. When the body is physically healthy, the mind is clear, focused and stress is under control.
The main goals of “Yoga in Daily Life” are:
* Physical Health
* Mental Health
* Social Health
* Spiritual Health
* Self-Realization or realization of the Divine within us.
Very Important Message By PM Modi Ji On Yoga Day: – Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. This tradition is 5000 years old. It embodies the unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well being. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.” — Narendra Modi, UN General Assembly, September 2014.
What is Importance of Yoga in Our Daily Life?
Yoga is not a religion; it is a way of living that aims towards ‘a healthy mind in a healthy body’.
Man is a physical, mental and spiritual being; yoga helps promote a balanced development of all the three. Other forms of physical exercises, like aerobics, assure only physical well-being. They have little to do with the development of the spiritual or astral body.
Yogic exercises recharge the body with cosmic energy and facilitate:-
- Attainment of perfect equilibrium and harmony
- Promotes self- healing
- Removes negative blocks from the mind and toxins from the body
- Enhances personal power
- Increases self-awareness
- Helps in attention, focus, and concentration, especially important for children
- Reduces stress and tension in the physical body by activating the parasympathetic nervous system
- The aspirant feels rejuvenated and energized.
Thus, yoga bestows upon every aspirant the powers to control body and mind.
