Your health in the New Year: How is yoga beneficial?
If you're thinking of adopting a healthier lifestyle in the New Year, or perhaps just want to try something different, yoga could be highly beneficial. Yoga has a number of benefits in terms of health and everyday activity, which could help you feel better heading into 2014.
You've probably heard a lot about different types of yoga as it has been a popular form of exercise for a number of years and is often spoken about in the media. It is an incredibly old form of exercise that helps to boost physical health as well as mental wellbeing. Yoga uses numerous exercises that improve strength, breathing and flexibility.
Most of yoga is about different postures. These help to stretch muscles, work out any knots and get you to relax. It is a great way to get past the stresses that your day can bring while also toning up your body.
As yoga helps to improve strength, balance and flexibility, it has a number of health benefits. It is also highly relaxing, which is why some studies have suggested it is incredibly good for lowering blood pressure, which can reduce the risk of heart attack and other cardiovascular problems. Yoga has also been linked to helping relieve aches and pains, such as lower back pain, as well as being beneficial for those that suffer from stress or depression.
Because yoga poses depend upon what you are able to do, it is a great way to ease yourself into exercise. You'll find that the more regularly you do yoga, the better able you are to stay in poses for longer and the wider range of moves and poses you can perform.
It is an incredibly gentle form or exercise and so is perfect for anyone that has not performed regular exercise, has arthritis or limited mobility. Yoga is about the individual so you are able to tailor your workout entirely for you.
As you become more adept at yoga poses, you may find that you are able to enter into other exercise types without stress or pain, helping your health even more.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- 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 Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
