Yoga: A Lifelong Habit for Health

Fighting off feelings like stress, exhaustion, and sadness is an ongoing process. Don’t expect to do yoga once and feel better forever. Instead, get into the mindset of making your practice a regular habit. We recommend performing at least three sessions per week. Luckily, yoga is challenging enough to make a difference in your mind and body but gentle enough to be performed frequently.

In addition to yoga, maintaining a healthy diet can have a major impact on your mind, body, and soul. Eating plenty of nutritious foods, and eliminating unhealthy ones, will no doubt make you feel better and sleep better.
