A regular yoga practice (even 5 minutes per day) can create significant change in brain chemistry so that we experience dramatic improvements in:
mood, attention/focus, memory, relationship satisfaction, self-awareness/insight, emotion regulation, information processing speed, compassion, weight loss, well-being, intuition, body awareness, sleep, morality/general health
and dramatic decreases in: stress, relationship conflict, depression, rumination, loneliness, psychological distress, mental illness, task effort, distracting thoughts
Even when we’re not actively practicing it!
