It is a well-known fact that yoga and meditation can help reduce stress and rejuvenate an exhausted body and mind. While yoga stretches and deep- breathing exercises can help strengthen you both mentally and physically, the teachings and regular practice of yoga can also offer some invaluable insights and tips on how to best manage your time. Surprised?

Well read on to know how…

  • Yoga teaches you to focus on a single task – Forget multi-tasking and trying to do too many things at one time. Yoga teaches you that the best way to get things done is to do them one at a time with single-minded focus. Once the task is done, only then should you move on to the next.
  • Yoga teaches you discipline – Its no easy feat to include a daily yoga class into your busy schedule. It takes time, commitment, and discipline to do so - the same commitment and discipline necessary to succeed at work or to complete all your tasks efficiently. 
  • Yoga teaches you to prioritize – If you make yoga part of your daily routine, you have already prioritized your health. Similarly, you learn to deal with the important things on your to-do list and emphasize a balance in your work and personal life.
  • Yoga teaches you to ask for help – One of the best ways to save time and energy is to ask for help. Yoga helps you understand that sometimes you can’t do everything on your own and asking for guidance is never a bad thing.
  • Yoga teaches you to balance – Time management and yoga both require a fine balance. Too much of anything prevents stability and growth so it is important to complete the tasks at hand and still leave time for rest and relaxation.
  • Yoga improves your intuition – Several yoga poses improve your intuition or third eye center. Intuition can help you decide what is important and what can be kept for another day when it comes to prioritizing your activities.

In short, a regular practice of yoga helps you sharpen your mental focus and prevent distractions and poor time management. Yoga keeps you re-energized and stress-free and ready to make time for your work and more importantly for yourself.
