Meditation or Yoga, or Both?
Many people around the world practice some form of yoga or meditate daily, to achieve a variety of things – health, relation, inner peace, etc. There are also many people around the world who don’t buy into the benefits of these techniques, but are these people right or wrong? First of all, everyone has their own opinion about any topic imaginable and it should be respected, but to preach against something, you have to have strong facts and reasonable explanations.
Meditation – What Is It Really?
Breaking down meditation to its core, it is really taking a few minutes per day trying to relax your brain and block any thoughts. Thinking only about breathing. Most people who are opposed to meditation do
not recognize that meditation is simple as breathing to ten and back to release anger and stress. Experts say to achieve the full effect it should be practiced on a daily basis. People say that it is just a new-age trend and that there are no tangible health benefits, but in reality, meditation has been practiced for thousands of years. If you are thinking of starting to meditate, try it for one month from two minutes up to five minutes once a day and see for yourself are there any benefits.
Yoga – Fake Or Real?
On the other hand, yoga is can almost be considered a sport where the goal is to relax your whole body. There are many techniques you can use, and, like meditation, yoga should be practiced on a daily basis for full effect. Start with simple breathing exercises, and if yoga is your cup of tea, then explore the variety of yoga techniques and positions. Yoga could definitely be beneficial for your health if it is practiced with caution. Before to not over stretch if your body is not used to it!
The best thing you can do, if you are thinking if these practices are for you, is to try for them for at least 21 days. Studies have shown that 21 days is optimal time for any new habit to form in your brain. All in all, go for it, you have nothing to lose and many things to gain.
