Stress has become an integral part of our lives these days but life will indeed be a fantastic journey if we positively take charge of our health. So, you can do various things starting from Yoga, Meditation, Prayanama, Gym, and a healthy lifestyle.

During ancient times people used to give loads of emphasis on Yoga and meditation, but nowadays they want quick results with Gym and HIIT Trainings. Yoga is not gender-specific; it is for both males and females, but few specific poses will give extraordinary results to females.

Every day they juggling between the family and the work. Running after the kids, preparing the meals, to-do list, activities for the kids, and so many never-ending tasks left them with no energy but stress only.

Being a mother of a kid, I would highly recommend you take care of yourself because if we are not fit and active, then who will take care of the family and the children. I find Yoga and Meditation as my best pals for stress relief.

Try to take out time from your busy schedule, and Yoga will be the easiest and less time-consuming option for you. Firstly, yoga gives flexibility and balance by strengthening the muscles and stretching tight ones. Secondly, meditation helps in reducing stress and brings more calmness to your mind and nerves.

Therefore, I will share the details of a few Yoga poses which will help you reduce the day to day stress, revive your senses and provides you flexibility and strength.

Nowadays, due to Coveid19 most of the working females can work from home and in that way hey can save a little extra time for themselves. I completely relate to the situation when you have kids around and a husband to look after. However, It is sometimes not easy to take out time for our priorities but to look after your family, and you have to first take care of yourself. 

You only need a water bottle and a mat to begin your yoga regime in comfortable clothes. Above all, no special instructions required, and any person can do it with little care and understanding of the poses.

For instance, take out some time for yourself and ask help from husband or anyone in the home to get 30mins for yourself. In short, once you will include Yoga and Meditation in your life, it will become an essential part. Yoga helps to reduce stress but a great way to feel light and healthy. No matter what, you will not be able to leave it or forget it in your life. Likewise, you can do it with your kids as well as it is beneficial for there development as well. Therefore, give a few minutes to yourself and see the change in your life.
