In this article I read, it says that exercise is more important to your mental health than your economic status. It got me thinking – yes I do agree to a certain extent but this probably applies when you have economic stability in your life. Now, everyone’s level of stability differs. Some feel that having a car, a good house means stability, whereas another individual will be contented with being able to have 3 meals a day, being able to afford basic necessities and the occasional family getaways.

In my personal opinion, I feel that the most important thing is to strike a balance. One should not be chasing money blindly all the time, nor one should be over-exercising and neglecting your daily responsibilities at work or home.

I love that the author of the article also emphasizes on not over-exercising, as it is detrimental to mental health too.  The recommended exercise time one should get is between 3 to 5 times a week, 30 – 60 minutes each.

Life and yoga is not that much different in this sense.

In Life, we strive to strike a balance between work, play and exercise.

In Yoga, we strive to strike a balance between stretching beyond your limits and not feeling any stretch at all.

The article is a good short read for everyone here if you are interested :)
