How Yoga Can Benefit You

Love this infographic from Huffington Post! Yoga is beneficial for the mind and body. It is known to reduce stress and boost well-being. Medically proven, stress is one of the triggers for your allergy attack, so if you can reduce stress, your allergy condition should also improve. I find that Yoga calms my mind. Doing it is the only time when my mind can be rid of all the buzz!

I have been going to Yoga class once a week. But I find that that's not enough. Last week, I started to make a commitment to myself to practise at least 5 times a week, 20 minutes each time. It is challenging to squeeze in time, but I hope to stick to it!

For those interested, there are Yoga poses here and here that provides some relief for allergies and nasal congestion.
