Keeping our energy balanced is critically important to remaining healthy and happy. We can all use tools that help us to stay steady, productive and balanced. Yoga is a wonderful tool that can help you to not only manage but also transmute and shift your energy.
For those of you who may be unsure if you know when you energy is out of balance; here is an example:
Tom is usually high energy, with a positive outlook but the last 2 or 3 days he has been easily irritable, suffering from Poor Sleep, and hasn’t been super motivated. Tom is energetically out of balance. Thankfully, Yoga exists!
Yoga will help you manage your energy with more ease over time. The actions that you take on the mat are nurturing the seeds of self-awareness & self-management which bloom when you are challenged off your mat. The marvelous thing about Yoga is that it can help you learn these skills with out even realizing it.
Here are 3 ways that Yoga will help you manage your energy that are guaranteed to make you a happier human:
Awareness is important. Yoga means to ‘yoke’ thus the philosophy is predicated on the idea that we, each, work towards attaining unity of heart, mind, spirit, and body. When you consistently come to your mat and face the physical challenges of the practice, the by products are plentiful. Someone who has a consistent practice will inevitably come into a deeper understanding of themselves. There is component of personal mastery that comes from the self-discipline required to be consistent with your Yoga practice. Once you are more connected with yourself, you will also begin to key into the various moments in your day when you may be triggered, or may have acted out of character, or behaved in manner that was inappropriate. Yoga will sharpen the picture so you can see yourself more clearly.
2. Yoga will help you become more PATIENT
Things have a way of happening at their own pace. This is one of the greatest lessons Yoga can teach you. When you give your self permission to surrender to this deep truth then you also give yourself permission to be a happier human. Yoga teaches you patience first with your body, then compassion & acceptance of yourself as you are. Then, from a place of empathy and understanding we start to be inevitably become more patient with others. Remember, that the speed with which our Yoga practice increases our capacity to exercise patience is related to our efforts to surrender and simply participate in the process of personal growth.
3. Yoga will help you be more MINDFUL
Yoga helps you learn to live in the present. Being in the Present is what
Mindfulness is all about. We all suffer from becoming distracted and Yoga can help to nip that in the bud. Its hard to be distracted when you are balancing on one foot with your hands in the air. The practice of being mindful on your mat encourages you to be more mindful off the mat. Slowing down to be present, take in the moment and truly live.
