If you’ve ever been stressed in or from life (and which obviously you have been), you know that stress can accumulate and manifest itself in your body. But most often it originates in the mind. In this fast running world the to-do lists can feel never ending, leaving very little time for self-care. It’s imperative to set aside some time every day to focus on your own health and well-being. This will help you reduce stress, prevent sickness and disease and help slow down the aging process. Try these yoga poses — each one simple enough that anyone can do them — and, with time, you will see your flexibility improve, your stress levels reduce and notice a refreshing feeling of well-being and inner peace.
