I mention a lot how I travel for work. It can be the best part and the worst part of my job. It takes me away from home but at the same time I learn so much about people, different places and the many different cultures we have within our world. Although so much is different everywhere I go, one thing remains the same. People, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, all need an escape from the stresses of everyday life.
Growing up my Dad always did yoga. He said he found balance, peace and harmony by spending 15-20 minutes a day with his yoga practice. Well, as a kid I thought he was silly. I was always into sports and never considered yoga sport. I also tended to be very high energy and guilty of being a little high strung. I never thought yoga would help me.
Then a few years ago, due to having no cartilage left in my knees, I had to give up my serenity, running. So, after many years of denial, I tried yoga. I never thought it would happen but I was addicted. So now, 4 years later, I go to a class or practice at home 4-5 times a week. As a result, my life has changed. I have found a balance and an outlet for the stresses of everyday life.
It’s no wonder that when I discovered a combination of both yoga and my other favorite past time, laughing, I had to learn more. Yoga is about mind, body and spirit. It takes the right breathing techniques to give you the full effect. This breathing combined with laughter has the most euphoric effects.
Now, I realize this won’t be for everyone. What I can guarantee is that when you watch this video you will escape the every day stresses of life and just laugh. If yoga isn’t for you than find out what is and just do it. Whether it’s cooking, running, painting, playing music, etc. Find your outlet and let go. Life is too short to let stress consume you.
