Diwali Wellness: Incorporating Yoga and Meditation

Diwali is a time to experience togetherness and share love within your community. It lights up our lives with joy and festivities. However, for some of us, the celebrations can also lead to increased levels of stress and symptoms of pain.

The solution is simple. Instead of treating Diwali as a time to go party-hopping, consider it a time to focus on your well-being and inner peace. Use the Diwali break to establish a habit of Yoga and Meditation. Guided meditation and Yoga Asanas techniques are proven flexibility enhancement and stress reduction techniques.

The Yoga introduction begins with techniques that serve to unite the body, mind, and breath. You can think of it as a pathway to connect with your inner core—the spiritual side of you. It is your gateway to mindfulness practices. Below are some of the Yoga techniques that can help alleviate pain and add more joy to your celebrations.

1. Morning Sun Salutations:

4. Practice Mindful Eating:

While savouring the myriad Diwali delicacies is a part of our Diwali celebration, let us also begin to practice mindful eating. It is an essential part of Yoga philosophy. So, the next time you are treating your taste buds, chew slowly and pay attention to the flavours. It will enhance your eating experience and prevent overindulgence.
