Calm Body & Mind

To calm your body and mind you need to ground yourself and be in the present moment.

The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.
– James Allen

Movement whether from Yoga or some other movement exercise, promotes circulation, digestion, and helps the respiratory system. Exercising brings attention to the body.

Being Aware of your Breath helps bring you into the present moment. "Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why we call it 'The Present'" -Eleanor Roosevelt
In the present moment we can stop suffering over the past and stressing about the future.

When the body & mind are calm we can achieve physical and emotional relaxation. This helps the body heal by releasing tension that can slow or stop your recovery.

Different forms of Mediation can release tension and quiet the mind.

We want to strive for Equanimity: Calm emotions when dealing with problems or pressure. -Merriam-Webster

A more relaxed body can usually rest better, improving the immune system and settle the nervous system for a more balanced and aligned body and mind, allowing restoration.

Ways to relax the mind and body coming soon!

Happy & Healthy,
Yoga Chuck
