Here are some simple thoughts and beliefs that we think will help you live a yogic lifestyle. 

  • Keep yourself hydrated
  • You need more water than you might imagine! Drinking water throughout the day will help you stay focused and energized. Additionally, water will help to lubricate your joints, making yoga easier to practice.  

  • Make nutritious food choices
  • Have fresh food by including a lot of vegetables, fruits, and nuts in your daily diet. Choose a yoga-friendly diet that will encourage and help you to practice yoga more often. 

  • Declutter and Organize
  • Cleaning your surroundings will not only make you feel better but will also inspire you to be present. Take care of your space and organize it to help you feel good and focused as you practice yoga. Donate anything you no longer require and consider what is most essential to you. 

  •  Stay active 
  • All you need is 20 minutes of physical activity three times a week to stay healthy and stress-free! Go on a paced walk, dance to your favorite song, hit the gym for some cardio, and, of course, practice yoga every day. 

  • Practice meditation
  • Meditation helps with balancing and aligning our bodies with our minds. One of the best things about meditation is that you can practice it at any time, anywhere. Start meditating for 10 minutes in the morning or evening, even though it may be challenging at first. Yoga asanas like Raja and Jnana are deeply meditative, reflective, and contemplative. Deepen your bond with the earth, practice your asanas like Raja and Jnana, and let the prana flow more freely. 

  • Reduce waste and consume mindfully
  • Be mindful of what you buy, including clothes and yoga mats. Utilise recycling as much as you can while reducing your consumption whenever you can. When purchasing clothing and yoga equipment, try to support brands that use eco-friendly manufacturing practices and materials. 

  • Stay true to yourself
  • Being true to yourself begins with knowing who you are and accepting yourself. Check-in with yourself to ensure that your actions are in sync with your thoughts. Attempt to be forgiving, empathetic, kind, and truthful with yourself. You will be inspired to act humbly and selflessly if you practice Karma Yoga.

  • Develop positive mental and social life
  • Being more engaged, encouraging, healthy, and positive in your social circle is crucial because yoga is all about becoming more mindful and conscious of your daily life. Give yourself plenty of chances to completely unwind, and make sure to incorporate stress-reducing yoga exercises like yoga nidra and Shavasana pose.

    It takes more than just practicing your morning poses and learning to meditate to live a yogic lifestyle. Living a more yoga-friendly lifestyle and practicing daily mindfulness does not have to be difficult. Ideally, it should be as simple as possible. Making a few easy changes to your lifestyle can keep you feeling focused, peaceful, and healthy and encourage your progression along the path of yoga.
