Today’s Takeaway: With so many disruptions to our daily routine right now, stress can take its toll. During times of stress, it can be even more challenging to watch what we eat, get enough sleep, or exercise. But it’s more important now than ever before to take care of your mind, body, and soul. Increasing our endorphins through physical activity, is one of the most effective ways to beat stress. The spiritual practice of yoga can provide both physical and mental benefits. Simply learning to pause in the moment and breathe deeply can be one of the most calming and healing tools we have. When we feel better, we act better.
