The hustle culture of today puts a lot of stress on the brain. Excessive stress and anxiety can negatively impact both health and cognitive abilities. So, how does one cope with such a stress-inducing culture? The key lies in maintaining a calm and collected mindset. One of the ancient practices that can help achieve that zen state after work is the combination of yoga and meditation.
Here are some yoga asanas to practice in order to enhance memory and focus:
Plough Pose, also known as Halasana, is a yoga asana that promotes blood circulation, reduces stress, and relaxes the body. It also supports the neurological system and cognitive abilities. To perform this asana, lie on your back with your arms by your sides. Slowly raise your legs above your head while gently bringing your knees towards your chest. If possible, try to touch the floor with your feet over your head. Keep your hands resting by your side throughout.
In the asana known as Vrikshasana or ‘Tree Pose,’ stand straight and bring your feet close together. Then, fold one leg and place your foot perpendicularly on the inner thigh of the other leg. Take a deep breath and hold the Namaskar position for a while. This asana promotes blood circulation, improves mental clarity, and reduces stress.
Paschimottanasana, also known as Sitting Forward Bend, is one of the best asanas for reducing abdominal fat. Stretch out your legs and sit up straight. Inhale and raise your arms. Bend forward to touch your nose with your thighs and reach out to touch your toes with your fingertips. Hold the position for a while. Be cautious while bending and stretching, only go as far as your body allows to avoid injuries or muscle strains.
Start by lying on your back with your arms at your sides. Slowly raise your legs towards the sky, then gently lift your pelvis and back while supporting them with your hands. Place your arms down and use your palms for support. This pose enhances brain function.
