Posted by Administrator on 2/27/2011
Despite the fact that Yoga has immeasurable health benefits, it would be difficult to convince a businessman to take Yoga classes. This is due to the complexity of the nature of his work. That not withstanding lets look at three major benefits of Yoga and how suitable they are to a businessperson.
First of all, take a moment and reflect about how your health affects your business bearing in mind that good health influences how you concentrate at work, gives you the energy to work harder and increases your productive hours. Yoga benefits one's physical health immensely.
The simplest way to cater to your physical well being as a businessperson is through Yoga. This is because the exercises are effortless and anyone can take them regardless of their shape and size. Yoga's health benefits are both short term and far reaching. As a businessman, you must admit that daily chores leave the body tensed and worked out. Practicing Yoga regularly helps release tension and stress automatically by stretching the muscles hence creating a good blood circulation through all body parts.
Far reaching benefits include; assisting the body's lymphatic system to be able to handle waste products effectively, assisting the digestive system to function effectively and finally, one is able to achieve a general body coordination and balance not forgetting flexibility.
The second benefit you reap from Yoga is having a stable mental health. Things as simple as breathing are taken for granted, thanks to the busy schedules businessmen have. Conversely, when you attend Yoga, you will have all the time in the world to breathe properly which is very vital in one's mental health.
By and large, each Yoga class starts with an upright breathing exercise. Yogis inhale and exhale air slowly hence drawing all their attention to the single act of breathing. With all the attention focused on breathing, one is able to appreciate the life giving benefit of breathe hence achieving an optimal level of calmness that busy schedules don't allow businessmen to seek out. The calmness, in its own right is a stepping stone for one to achieve a common focus.
Due to the intricacy of a businessman's daily life, it becomes next to impossible for them to focus properly one any single thing. Attending Yoga regularly, you will learn how to swiftly clear off all distracting thoughts and be able to draw all your mental efforts on a single task at hand. Most importantly, you learn the self discipline of focusing which is vital to achieving a stable mental health.
Finally, Yoga gives an individual immeasurable happiness; naturally, people normally postpone short term happiness for some numinous point in future when they predict that everything will blend in together and be okay.
Important to note is that Yoga does not, by any means move you closer to that mystical point in the future, on the contrary, it teaches and trains one to accept their current situation and be content. Contentment translates to happiness.
