Yoga as a Therapy of stress management
Author(s): Dr. Amandeep Singh
Yoga is a traditional mean of mind and body practice of self-development. It increases life expectancy with creating within peace, stability, happiness and contentment. Yoga has a divesting physically, mentally and socially effect on one’s body. Yoga practice is a boon when it comes to stress. Stress management is the amelioration of stress and especially chronic stress often for the purpose of improving everyday functioning. Stress produces numerous symptoms which vary according to persons, situations, and severity. These can include physical health decline as well as depression. Although life events continue to be the major focus of stress research, recent studies suggest that chronic stress should be a more central focus. An evaluation of this issue is presented that chronic stresses are more strongly related to depressive symptoms than acute stresses in all but one life domain. The interaction patterns exhibited by chronic and acute stresses are predominantly associated with lower levels of depression than those predicted by a main effects model. Chronic stresses may reduce the emotional effects of acute stresses. Although the processes through which this effect occurs are not clear, it is suggested that anticipation and reappraisal reduce the stressfulness of an event by making its meaning more benign.
