Reduce the effects of seasonal depression
Q. Can yoga be helpful in addressing seasonal depression?
A. So many people are sensitive to the shorter days during this time of year and suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD). As a result, they have a tendency to withdraw from activities and socializing. Practicing yoga can be very helpful in counteracting the effects of this condition in a number of important ways. 1) Lessens stress: Practicing yoga reduces stress in the body — in the winter, when people may feel particularly isolated, gathering in a yoga space helps them feel connected and a sense of community. 2) Health benefits: Sweating and detoxing your body, performing movements that increase the body’s endorphins, and combining meditation with yoga produce emotional and physical benefits. 3) Improved immunity: practicing yoga also boosts your body’s immune system, strengthening your overall health.
