If you’re in pain, there’s a temptation to skip exercising. But exercise is often the very best way to help lessen the pain and improve your quality of life. The beneficial effect of exercise on the cardiovascular system is well documented. There is a direct correlation between physical inactivity and cardiovascular mortality, and physical inactivity is an independent risk factor for the development of coronary artery disease. Exercise also generally improves mood and imparts a sense of calm afterward, with lower heart rate, lower blood pressure, better digestion, and lower levels of stress hormones.
It can be hard to be active when you feel depressed or anxious or have a mental health problem. But activity can help you feel better, so do your best to find a way to be active. It’s fine to start with small steps. You can build up from a few minutes a day. Warm up your muscles for about 5 minutes before you start exercising. Talk sing test to see whether you’re exercising at the right pace. Drink water before, during, and after exercise.
Yoga not only enhances your physical strength but also contributes largely towards your mental health and spiritual growth. Yoga is a mind-body and exercise practice that combines breath control, meditation, and movements to stretch and strengthen muscles. What sets yoga apart from most other exercise programs is that it places as great an emphasis on mental fitness as on physical fitness.
Dhanurasana: Dhanurasana consists of two words: Dhanu means ‘bow’ and Asana indicates a Yoga pose. Thus the name is ‘the Bow Pose’ because, in the final position, the body resembles a bow. Dhanurasana is also sometimes linked with upward wheel pose or Urdhva Chakrasana. The Bow or Dhanurasana raises both halves of the body at once, combining the movements of the Cobra and Locust, and countering the Plough and the Forward Bend, same as like an archer stringing a bow. This asana helps in beating premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction and achieving stronger orgasm.
