With COVID-19 being declared a pandemic, a state of fear and panic has gripped the world. Governments are advising people to work from home and stay indoors to avoid catching the virus and the idea of social distancing is being promoted as one of the most effective ways to keep it at bay. In this tough time, Yoga & Meditation are no lesser than a medicine for your mental health.
Constantly being bombarded with news of new cases and the shutting down of borders, millions of people around the world are experiencing anxiety because of the disease as well as uncertainty regarding what the future holds for them. All these pent-up negative emotions and feelings are exacerbated by the fact that people are getting any healthy outlets to release them. Remaining indoors and not hitting the gym on a daily basis, though necessary during a pandemic, can have detrimental effects on your physical and mental well-being. This is where yoga can come to your rescue.
Yoga in the time of Coronavirus
Instead of going to the gym, consider giving yoga a try at your home. Not only will it help to give your body a much needed workout, but it will also calm your mind that’s been aggravated because of the present state of events. In addition to this, yogic practice will also strengthen the immune system thus rendering you less likely to suffer from the disease.
