2. Pay attention
Mindfulness has to do with being aware of what is happening in your life right now – not yesterday or tomorrow, but now – so that you can appreciate the positive and let go of the negative. It has to do with removing distractions that clutter your mind and cloud your ability to maintain balance and serenity.
Yoga helps you to accomplish these goals not only by releasing tension in the body, but creating a sense of calm and peace in the mind. This will naturally help to reduce stress, anxiety, and other negative emotions.
