Over the years, researchers have developed many ideas behind how certain activities can improve mental health along with mental health.
One tactic is that when you focus your mind on something hard enough, you forget the things around you along with the immediate thoughts going through your mind.
When you practice yoga, you are supposed to concentrate on breathing correctly, as well as trying to correctly do the movements that are needed.
Therefor, you are focusing on something and not your immediate problems or stressors and any sort of stress reliever is beneficial for your mental health.
Stress relief can add years onto your lifespan, plus the longevity added by practicing yoga in general. Practicing yoga can literally make you live a longer and HAPPIER life.
With these brief points being brought into focus, the question to ask yourself is...why am I not doing yoga? Why haven't I began improving my life one step at a time? I may not have the answer for you specifically, but what I can say is we make excuses for ourselves especially when we are in a lower state of mental health. So I urge you to begin practicing yoga today, and as you improve and your mental health improves, those thoughts will melt away.
