Yoga is Good For Stress
Yoga is good for stress and reduces inflammation. This is a super article by Huffington Post. I found it interesting another article the same day was “Your Stressful Job Might be Making You Age Faster” so we all definitely need to make yoga a must do in our lives!
Past research has shown how yoga could help to lower depression and improve cognitive functioning among caregivers — and now, a new study is showing exactlywhat is responsible for that effect.
University of California, Los Angeles, researchers found that participating in Kirtan Kriya Meditation — a kind of yoga practice — is linked with a decrease in inflammation.
“This is encouraging news,” study researcher Dr. Helen Lavretsky, a professor of psychiatry at UCLA, said in a statement . “Caregivers often don’t have the time, energy, or contacts that could bring them a little relief from the stress of taking care of a loved one with dementia, so practicing a brief form of yogic meditation, which is easy to learn, is a useful too.”
