5 Yoga Moves to Relieve Holiday Stress

Holidays are all about relaxation, a break from routine life and experiencing something different and fresh.

Soon, a harsh reality would kick-in once you return from your vacation. The transition from your holiday mood to regular routine can be stressful and challenging both physically and mentally.

This typically involves-

  • Pending office work?
  • A heap full of clothes?
  • Want to re-stock your grocery?
  • Never-ending emails?
  • Kids school homework.

Popularly known as the post vacation blues, it can seemingly get cumbersome to get back on track. The reason behind this is your sleep schedules are changed, your body is acclimatized to a different weather, and you have had larger than life experiences, as opposed to the humdrum of your life. Therefore, it is quite natural that you will have difficulty to stream back to your regular timetable.

Stress management therapy in Dubai has the perfect solution to manage this conundrum. Our experts at Illuminations Wellbeing center in Dubai suggest that an hour of yoga every day can help ease the holiday stress and focus on your inner self. Yoga heals you both physically and mentally, as there are different asanas (poses) which have significant benefits in releasing tension and stress.

Yoga is essentially a balance of mind-body exercises, which makes use of physical poses, meditation, breathing to help balance out the stress levels in your body.

We list down some of the asanas that will help you hit the routine with a fresh mind and body:

1.Tree pose (Vrukshasana)

A long holiday throws your body balance out of control. So do your concentration levels. To get your body, soul, and mind back in place to work in tandem, you can try the Vrukshasana pose where you need to stand on one leg, while the other leg folded.
