Practice Yoga As A Lifestyle And Share The Secret Of Positive Energy

Yoga will change the outlook of the entire world. If there is anything the world could use more of, it is positive energy. All you have to do is listen to the news, or read today's newspaper, to have your enthusiasm drained from you.

How often do you see a heart warming story on the front cover of the daily newspaper? Let's look at Yogic methods for cultivation of positive energy.

There are many forms of Yoga, but the world, outside of India, is most familiar with the physical form we know as Hatha Yoga. So, let's work with what most of us know. Get a daily dosage of low-impact exercise. Just a light warm-up in the morning and a light relaxing stretch in the evening, will exponentially improve your frame of mind.

The positive results of steady physical exercise affect much more than your appearance. You will feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally, as a result of regular practice. Your energy levels will increase from the regular practice of Hatha Yoga.

Make sure your diet is nutritionally dense. How often do we hear about the positive results of eating vegetables, fruits, whole grains, etc.? In Yoga, this is called the Sattvic diet. It has been around for thousands of years.

The Sattvic diet is sometimes called the Yoga diet, but the principles are easy to understand. It is basically about eating food in moderation and in its most pure state. Raw vegetables and fruit are more nutritionally dense than overcooked, salted, sugared, and processed foods.

In the case of sugar consumption, we know the pitfalls, but the resulting energy peaks, throughout the day, are sometimes taken for granted. Many of us run around in search of our next "sugar high." In contrast, the Sattvic diet will yield steady energy from whole vegetarian foods, which contain natural sugar and high fiber.

Moderation is an important component of the Sattvic diet because overeating is discouraged. Due to the steady amount of raw food consumed, people in cold climates will want to heat their food during the colder seasons. Consuming cold food in a cold climate, over long periods of time, can take the pleasure out of eating.

Another Yogic method for cultivation of positive energy is to keep the passion for life going. Your work, hobbies, interests, and talents, can be interwoven to help others and give you satisfaction. All you have to do is meditate and reflect on your life. As a result of your self-reflection, you will find your deep and meaningful purpose in life.
