Yoga for Depression

We are constantly learning new things everyday and our brains collect knowledge that doubles every two years. With these new ideas, thoughts and information comes a loss of connection, meaning and purpose in our lives. With this loss, comes depression. We seem to have so much more knowledge and information, but we lost the true meaning of ourselves in the process. Depression is a feeling of separation from yourself and who you really are.

Through the practice of yoga, we learn that there is no separation. Every cell within our bodies is stimulated and in a state of bliss, which leads us into a state beyond happiness, and then we start to feel connected to all beings.

Encourage Happiness into your life

Everyone can describe feelings of true happiness in a different way. That's what makes us all unique. We spend all our lives trying to become happy in many ways. Some people succeed and some people don't.

Happiness can be found if you choose to pursue it. The key to always staying happy is to do the things that put a smile on your face. To constantly do things that make you feel like a million bucks, to surround yourself with positive people and to engage in hobbies that you are passionate about. This way, you're always adding happiness to your life.

Massage your feet to keep you grounded!

A foot massage is a very relaxing way to balance your root chakra, as well as your other chakras. There are secondary chakras on the arches of your feet that connect to your root chakra. This links the earth's energy to your own energy through your feet. Walking bare foot on natural ground like the grass or sand can also stimulate your foot chakras.

Foot Massage

Massaging your feet is very beneficial to increase blood circulation throughout your body. According to reflexology there are points on your feet that are linked to every part of your body. When you press or massage certain parts of your feet, you are then stimulating that organ on your body as well. So go ahead and enjoy a nice relaxing foot rub!
