Household Work Versus Yoga

Is doing household work enough as an exercise or yoga is necessary?


Answer
Housewives may be doing their daily routine work but it cannot become a substitute for regular exercise. There is a difference between household work and health benefits related to physical exercise and yoga.

Though household work burns calories and make you physically active, but is not an alternative to regular exercise or yoga. It is recommended that either you do at least 30 to 45 minutes of walking daily or do 45 minutes of yoga per day. If you can spare time, best possible approach is to do walking followed by yoga.

Yoga will benefit your body as well as mind. The major benefits of yoga are better health, relaxation of mind and body, improved breathing, improved posture and control of body weight.

In addition regular yoga practice will help to achieve
~ better health of all body organs and endocrine glands. This helps to maintain better health against ailments related to aging of the body.

~ better immunity

~ better capacity to withstand stress

~ better control of blood pressure

~ better energy levels

Thus we can say that yoga practice can improve your overall health and personality.

Hope this helps
