The world has changed at a rapid speed in the past 3 years and as we are still trying to keep pace with it, our kids have gotten so used to the digital lifestyle. But while they are being geniuses with tech right at the age of 5, are we teaching them how to be geniuses at taking care of their health? As we raise a generation of iPad-savvy teens who know more about entrepreneurship and coding than we do (even now!), are we missing out on giving them the perfect healthy lifestyle? Amidst the daily hustles, are we ignoring the power of Yoga for teens to improve their health- mentally and physically?
Here’s How Yoga Can Help Teens:
- It can improve flexibility, strength, balance, and stamina.
- It reduces anxiety and stress.
- Improves mental clarity.
- Helps them sleep better.
- improve focus, memory, and self-esteem.
- It also improves academic performance and classroom behaviour.
Recently, our editor Parul Gupta spoke to @varunashunglu, Integrative Health Coach and author of “More Than I Am”, on how parents can introduce their children and teens, in particular to the benefits of Yoga and how to create a mind-body connection through the same.
She also talks to us about what inspired her to write the book “More Than I Am” published by @afterschooltales and why today’s teens need the power of yoga to help them scale higher.
