Yoga Can Help Treat Depression

First, if you opened this article, you are wondering if you can treat some issues in your life by practicing yoga. Well, if you came here for a short answer- you can.

You do not have to be clinically depressed to feel symptoms of depression or just stress induced burnout. Let's look at ways and reasons yoga can help you:

-quiet the mind

-soothe the body

-feeling a sense of release

-increasing blood circulation to the brain to allow for the production of mood-elevating hormones


When you incorporate practicing yoga in your day-to-day life, you feel a sense of self mastery. You feel more in control of your mind, body, life.

Isn't the idea that everyone is chasing to be in control and feel a sense of good handling on their life?

Imagine this, after practicing for enough time to feel like you have a good grasp on how to do yoga, you wake up and go through your routine, once you finish you make some breakfast and start planning your day..do you see that? By incorporating yoga, you already have introduced the sensation of productivity. When we are productive, we feel more into hope and resilience than depression and worry.

If nothing else, how can you sit and worry about the things in your life that cause some sort of discomfort when you're busy concentrating on positions and breathing through the motions while practicing? The tactic of distraction can be a very powerful coping mechanism.

Take these statements into consideration while deciding if yoga would be beneficial for you.
