Yoga Is Cool
Yoga is cool to the majority of teenagers, this makes introducing yoga and all it’s health benefits to them so much easier. Yoga and meditation go together like peas and carrots, when you use both of these together you are getting the complete total body workout. For teenagers it is very important they find good coping and relaxation skills to battle their emotional stress, there is so much stress on teenagers today more than in the past. When teenagers do not have good coping and relaxation skills their emotional issues become even more severe, many experience depression and even attempt or commit suicide. Any teenagers reading this article, please considering yoga and meditation.
Yoga & Meditation Benefits
The benefits practicing yoga and meditation daily is awesome, this is the total body workout you should consider for being a healthy person. We are experiencing more stress in our lives today than people have in the past, our world is full of much more violence and crime today. If you are experiencing anxiety or depression this is your best strategy to cope with it, these are much better than any medication doctors can prescribe with no side-effects. Medication is like a band-aid, it is only a temporary solution until you heal from your pain. Medication dependency really sucks, I was on several medications for my emotional issues and the medications actually hindered my ability to get well.

Yoga Poses For Anxiety
Yoga and meditation have changed my life, I only do the simple stretching poses and the best poses for my anxiety. I do yoga and meditation daily, sometimes several times in one day if I am having an extremely stressful day. I always start my day with these to get my body and my mind prepared for my day. I find doing meditation during my day helps me be more productive, it only takes minutes but the results are just amazing. Before practicing these daily I often felt so stiff and achy, also my mind was always foggy. I rarely get that overwhelming feeling from my stress, also I do not get that flight or fight response which has been a blessing in my life.
Meditation is the most difficult and the most beneficial to people with anxiety, learning to relax and clear your mind from your thoughts is a challenge. It does take practice, but once you begin to experience the benefits you will be so grateful you learned this, your mind will feel so much clearer and your concentration will be much improved. Learning to let go of your racing thoughts is the most difficult part for most people, but this will change your life once it becomes natural for you. Meditating with meditation music works the best for me, having total silence seem to make me more anxious. These products are inexpensive and widely available, I really recommend you purchasing some of these products they will benefit you so much.

Learning Yoga & Meditation
Learning meditation and yoga is best by taking classes, most YMCA’s have these classes and also some gyms. The hospital where I live provides classes for a very low fee, if these do not fit in your budget the next best thing is DVDs. Other options are cd’s and books, you can find these products in many shops today or online. I also have watched video’s on YouTube from time to time, resources for these are not difficult to find even many libraries have resources on learning yoga and meditation today.

What Is On My Mind Today
Yoga & meditation is on my mind today for you teenagers, this is the coolest way to deal with the stress in your life. I hope you will at least consider it, if you are not dealing well with your stress this might change your life. Much better than going to talk to a therapist with mom and dad all the time, I know your life is too busy for that. Parents maybe you also would like to try yoga and meditation, the stress your teenager is giving you might be more than you can handle. Yoga and meditation is a great relaxation and coping skill for anyone, stay off the medications and add this in your life and you will be happier and healthier.
