I am writing a blog post after more than a month. Actually, I was gathering knowledge about how to boost immunity. Can it be done? While researching, I found an interesting thing. You can boost immunity other than eating, too.
In one of my previous blog posts, we have discussed how to stay physically and mentally healthy during the pandemic time.
Today let’s stress on one of the points discussed in that post, that is, the importance of exercise.
Recently, as I said, I was researching on how to boost immunity and came to know about the importance of Yoga for boosting immunity. We mostly stress on reducing weight while doing exercise but often many of us miss one important aspect of exercise, and that is, a wholesome benefit of connecting body and mind. Yoga helps us to achieve that along with providing many other health benefits.
So, let’s discuss how Yoga can help us stay healthy, especially during this difficult time, and help us fight with the pandemic. If we can boost our immunity, it can help us throughout our lives and not only to combat the CoronaVirus pandemic.
How yoga asanas can help us
Doing correct yoga asanas can help you reduce your stress level and improve the quality of sleep. We all know that sleep is an important factor to boost immunity. Proper sleep helps to heal the body and mind.
Yoga helps to reduce toxin levels in our body that can improve the quality of sleep and overall health condition.
What yoga asanas should we do?
You can start with 4 yoga asanas that you should practice regularly. They are the Tree Pose, the Bridge Pose, the Cobra Pose, and the Bow Pose. These asanas can help cut down degeneration and inflammation and supply more oxygen to your body.
I am not describing the asanas here since you can easily get that while browsing online. You should always learn to do the postures correctly with correct breathing techniques.
What is the best time to practice yoga?
The experienced people say that the best time to practice yoga is early morning or early evening. And, always finish your exercise routine with the Corpse Pose. You can do yoga 3-5 times a week. And, always take adequate rest in between as recommended. Do not rush to complete your exercise routine.
What are the other ways to boost immunity?
Along with practicing asanas and doing regular exercises, try to do these things:
You can always incorporate yoga in your regular exercise routine. The asanas are great stretching exercises too. You might be doing some of them unknowingly. After finishing your cardio and strength training exercises, you can do yoga. Or, you can designate different times to practice these asanas or more if you like.
It is also advisable to practice Pranayam and mindful meditation too. It helps to concentrate, get rid of negative energy, and fill your body and mind with positive energy.
And not to forget having a proper diet plan. Exercising along with eating the right things can help us have a long, healthy, and happy life.
