Yoga ’could bring psychological benefits’
There could be a whole host of psychological benefits to gain from taking up yoga.
While the relaxation and muscle-toning is generally accepted as something yoga can bring to an individual, new research shows there could be even more positives to be had!
A study from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard Medical School suggests that students who started doing yoga for beginners began to develop interesting mental benefits.
The research published in the Journal of Development & Behavioral Pediatrics showed that students assigned to Kripalu yoga classes for ten weeks recorded better psychosocial test results than those who were engaging in regular PE classes.
Kripalu yoga consists of a mix of physical yoga postures, as well as a combination of breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation, making it a thorough form of exercise for both the mind and body.
And evidently so, as researchers found that the students experienced improvements or no changes to mood problems, control of anger expression, resilience, mindfulness and anxiety.
Yoga can be a positive way to take ownership of psychological issues, especially stress, giving you a great excuse to concentrate on yourself both inside and out, while also freeing your mind of everyday worries.
By attempting to do even just 20 minutes of yoga three times a week, you can hope to clear your thoughts and focus better on building your core muscles and self-belief.
You will master that crane pose slowly but surely - so long as you commit yourself and your body.
This was something the study showed could come easier by practising yoga, with almost three-quarters of the adolescents reporting that they would like to continue on with the classes.
The research went on to suggest that by undertaking yoga, using exercises that combine strength, flexibility and relaxation the benefits could be immeasurable.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
