In today’s episode, Rajashree Choudhury joins the show to discuss yoga, meditation, and life-balance. She’s the CEO and president of Lavanya Wellness, titled as Mrs. India, and has been practicing yoga since age four. Life comes with a lot of anxiety, and yoga is a way to bring balance and energy back to yourself. Doing yoga and meditation in the mornings can better equip you to deal with the stresses of daily life.
If you don’t have that family support system, finding a friend to talk with or even a mentor can be a huge help.
Anxiety builds up inside of us. If we’re not finding a way to release the stress from life, at first, it might seem like we’re strong. Eventually, it will catch up to us and that can leave us with a lot of physical, mental, and emotional health complications. Emotion is normal, but the energy within the family unit has to come together to solve any issues or it can cause bigger issues later. If you don’t have that family support system, finding a friend to talk with or even a mentor can be a huge help.
Meditation isn’t about solving all of your problems in one sitting.
Meditation isn’t about solving all of your problems in one sitting. It’s about opening up, connecting, and forming a deeper understanding of yourself. It’s a long, ongoing process, but it’s a liberating one that can give us self-confidence. Specifically, pregnancy is a very scary time for women, and when we internalize that fear and stress, we end up putting it on the baby. Rajashree encourages women who are pregnant to look into yoga classes for stress release, but also for exercise and support throughout their pregnancy.
Yoga is great for children, but depending on age, they sometimes struggle to understand the core concept of meditation and self-reflection. Rajashree’s company works to bridge that gap to children. She also works to bring yoga to senior citizens because of the health benefits, mobility, and pain alleviation yoga has.
when heading to a big interview or something that makes you very anxious, first try to be still and be at ease.
When we’re nervous, we tend to move around, but stillness is the first thing you achieve. So, when heading to a big interview or something that makes you very anxious, first try to be still and be at ease. It’s okay to keep a little of that tension with you because we don’t want to be too over-confident and mess up. Then sit up straight, breathe slowly, and sit in that stillness.
