Hence this will unfold new horizons day after day about yoga and its benefit. As a result your mind will be curious and will always get motivated.

See how it work. One of my millionaire friend was having a very stressful life and it was due to his business. Life was getting miserable day by day.

He was not getting quality sleep. He always felt weak and lazy. Unhealthy lifestyle and work pressure made him like that. His best friend advised him very a small exercise.

He said, “sit and one place and start taking a deep breath. Hold it in your stomach for 15 seconds and leave it. Do it 30 – 40 times in one set. Do daily 2 times, one before sleeping and also in the morning ”. He took his advice as it was very easy to do.

In a week he started feeling better. He became energetic and lowered his stress levels too. He experienced the magic of yoga.

And today he is the one who motivates me. Think how it changes. Reading daily new benefits of yoga helps your mind getting the feeling of doing it daily.

Understanding pain: Yoga Challenge No-3

we should know one thing while doing yoga. There is good pain and bad pain.

In initial days you will observe that you start getting pain when you stretch. And as you relax pain vanishes in that case It’s good pain.

Sometimes you will also observe that Pain remains and gets worse. It’s bad pain. Bad pain is the result of practicing the wrong way.

Now something interesting.

During practicing yoga, you feel pain as our muscles get stretched. Let’s say today you feel pain in shoulders and next day you feel pain in your thighs.

Do you know? That pain shifts. Pain changes its position while your body muscles get relaxed.

If you are feeling pain at the same point for a longer period? Then my dear friend, you are stuck in one place.

So, pain must shift for good. It shifts when you hold one position for a minute or more. Let’s say you raise your both hands for stretching.

It’s very easy, right? But now hold it for one minute. You will start feeling pain. So it is important to hold in one position for one minute or more.

After putting hands down, you may feel good as your muscles may have relaxed due to stretching. Or you may not get the same feeling rather you may feel out of energy.

In both situations, keep yourself motivated as you know stretching is good for your body. It’s Important to seek proper knowledge as you proceed. Keep learning yoga and do it in the right way as a result you will always experience good pain.

You get pleased and overwhelmed with the results. As a matter of fact you start feeling confident about what you are doing. Yoga is doing miracle to your body. Now your brain has very high perception of yoga.

My dear friend! Please don’t get pleased and be careful because It’s a trap. You may not feel the same very next day.

Sudden fall in your feeling may make the day your last day for yoga.

So, Don’t get pleased with early results or get disappointed with the pain. What is more important is to focus on doing it every day.
