We are all familiar with movies and TV shows that make city life look like a ramp walk in the best fashion show of the year; everyone’s confident and smiling. Even in the midst of conflict, the perfect hair flips deliver the punch. We are all also familiar with how different real life is. In between work and social events, there is panic, anxiety, and very often, a lack of self-esteem. Various factors lead to these emotional and bodily reactions, and here are 4 ways yoga can help you overcome them.
1.) Build Awareness
You may find yourself feeling unreasonably low at certain points of the day; a certain remark might make you anxious or very conscious of your perceived shortcomings. Whatever it may be, the first step towards resolving it is becoming aware of the cause and your reaction to it.
Yoga helps you practice better control over your mind, spirit, and body, and makes you aware of your potential as well as limitations. Once you reach a balance, you are able to eliminate all negative thoughts and build your confidence on a strong foundation.
2.)Improve your Body Language
As you indulge in yoga, your mind will expand its horizons and your body will start to feel energized and more at ease with its surroundings. This will reflect in your postures and mannerisms, and you will notice a significant difference in your body language.
