Stay Safe, Relaxed & Healthy
We don’t yet know how long our lives will be impacted by coronavirus. Because for now it is an unavoidable part of our lives, the world around us might be starting to feel a little bit crazy.
But there is another world, an inner world, where we can find peace. So let’s be sure to take time for inner cultivation and to explore the many benefits yoga has to offer.
Although practicing social distancing is good, don’t let it get in the way of your getting enough exercise. Depending on where you live, exercising outdoors where there are not many people around, like going for a hike or a bike ride, might be good options for you.
And of course, yoga asanas are an excellent exercise, and are something you can practice anytime on your own. So don’t just hide indoors. Get out and get some sun and vitamin D. It will boost your mood and your immune system!
Just because we’re apart, doesn’t mean we can’t experience togetherness. Caring about others is something that can unite us all.
Rather than being sad about what you can’t do right now, take the time to appreciate all the things you took for granted just a month ago.
In the winter months, when it’s always overcast outside, it’s easy to start feeling sluggish and a little depressed.
But when springtime comes and the sun shines brightly, we naturally cheer up. Likewise, if we’re experiencing anxiety, fear, or loneliness, we can find internal sunshine in our yoga practice.
One of the nice things about yoga is that it’s a personal practice. So if we’re not able to go to work, or go out and socialize with others, that doesn’t interfere with us practicing yoga. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Often,
we don’t make time to meditate because we’re so busy spending time with friends or with other engagements.
So having extra time can be a really good thing if we use it wisely.
