The working day can be very stressful. From working long hours to coping with personal problems, a lot of stress can build up, even if you're only a few hours at work.
From a company's point of view, being at work will not be so productive when employees are stressed and unhappy. If the employees are not productive at work, the company does not get what to do and will not make as much profit as possible. From the point of view of employees, stress will burden your mental health throughout the day. Your boss can recognize that you are not in a good mood. which could lead to a problem between you and your boss.
One way to combat stress in your life is yoga. Yoga is a great way to relax, regain the composition, and relieve the pain of previous experiences in your day. The great thing about yoga is that there are many different levels, from beginner to advanced. Beginner yoga is at the heart of improving morale and reducing stress during the day. A basic yoga lesson does not take long. In just 20-30 minutes, you can perform all the yoga poses, strains, and meditations required to be more relaxed and stress-free for the rest of your working day.
Starting a basic yoga session would start with a bit of stretching and breathing. You would sit on your yoga mat, with your feet in front of you and slowly reaching for your toes. Breathing is the key component. Even if you are not flexible, you want to breathe in the stretch. Inhale very slowly, count one, two, three, four and exhale slowly, counting one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. You want to perform this stretching and breathing for about 45 seconds. Your breath relaxes you, it keeps you calm and makes you walk at a slow, relaxed pace. You want to concentrate on this breathing pattern with each exercise.
The next part of the yoga session consists of basic poses. An excellent start is the pose of the child. In this posture, you want to sit on your knees on the mat and then stretch your arms as far in front of you as possible. Lay your palms flat on the floor, making sure your knees are on the mat and your back is straight. This posture extends over the back, a place where much stress and anxiety are stored. This pose should be done for about 2-3 minutes. Another great entry-level yoga pose is the downward and upward dog pose. These two poses stretch your hips and lower back. These should be done for about a minute each while you inhale and exhale slowly.
The final pose of a typical yoga session is the corpse pose. The corpse keeping is done by lying flat on your back and laying your hands flat on each side. This pose serves to completely relax the body and mind of everything. You want to free your mind of any pressure or anxiety you have had before. The goal is to think about nothing. This pose is very unique, because not many people do not think about their day. This should be done 5-7 minutes or more, if desired.
Taking a break from the work day is cruel. I recommend a 20-minute yoga class after lunch. The yoga will relax you and make you less stressed and feel better and better during the day. Encourage the management in your job to get involved too. Management will want higher morale and better productivity. It's a win-win situation for both sides.
