Holidays are stressful! There's no two ways about it - the holiday season can bring on physical, mental and emotional tension and leave a body in knots. This holiday season, why not try out some alternative health techniques with some scientifically proven benefits?
A recent 5-year study from Harvard by John Denniger has shown that even a one time try of yoga, meditation, repetitive prayer or diaphragmatic breathing has specific genetic benefits that result in positive physiological changes for your health.
Imagine taking one moment out of your bustling holiday season to strike a yoga pose, mindfully meditate or take a deep breath and know that your body is working to lower its blood pressure? Scientist found that these techniques performed once or over a short period of time, stimulated a well-documented relaxation response (RR) and created positive genetic change.
Check out this short list of benefits that this study uncovered and try a relaxation technique for your health this holiday season. Happy Healthy Holidays!
