Yoga is good for the mind, the emotions, and the intellect. It is the world's only discipline that acts at the mental level. At the same time, yoga practice teaches us about ourselves. As we gain knowledge, we become more conscious of our limitless abilities. The person who recognizes his limitless potential and energy rises above the competition, strives for perfection, and does not follow in others' footsteps.
Digital Desk: According to Indian texts, the ability to think and contemplate is what distinguishes us as human beings. When it comes to the mind, it is the cause of man's grief (bondage) as well as his delight (nirvana). In other words, an uncontrolled mind leads to grief, whereas a well-controlled mind leads to happiness. Every particle in our universe is ephemeral and fleeting. As a result, attachment-aversion and love-hatred feelings cause agony. To that aim, suffering is intellectual ignorance, which includes, among other things, illusions, erroneous information, bias, and belief.
Working and earning a living entails a certain amount of stress. The pituitary and adrenal glands were built by nature to relieve stress during emergencies and to keep the body and mind in balance. However, if this stress lasts for a long time in our bodies, it becomes a source of unhappiness, gradually hollowing out our personalities.
Young people are concerned about their ability to keep their jobs and careers. Stress results from indiscriminately raising our needs and expectations, pushing past competition, and attempting to persuade others to adopt our viewpoint - all of which are the result of our ignorance. Tiredness, restlessness, insomnia, a lack of interest in work, anger, fear, insecurity, and irritability, despair, and frustration are all stress-related side effects. Diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, digestive problems, constipation, IBS, asthma, arthritis, and cancer are all psychosomatic diseases. In addition, there is an emotional imbalance that destroys relationships.
Understanding and developing the mind according to objective, science, logic, and truth is the only way to cure its ignorance. This is the long-term remedy to all tension and sadness. Only through the praise of yoga is this possible.

Take five long, deep breaths consciously. Now, using the thumb of your right hand, shut the right nostril and take long, deep, and slow breaths in through the left nostril.
