Beyond the Broken Mind

The demonic presence of waves of stress, a heavy heart, or traumatic memories may symbolize your experience of anxiety attacks. If you no longer feel happy and rather experience a gulf of emptiness inside, nothing can fill.

Yes, your mind is broken emotionally — and you need a fix ASAP!

Now you may ask- “If my mind is broken — what caused the breakage?”

There’s nothing wrong with feeling sad, depressed, anxious at times. Feeling worried or concerned about events in life tells us that something in our life is unfair and requires attention.

Or, in a few cases, ‘anxiety’ is just a natural response to excruciating circumstances (like death or heartbreak).

All you need is a ‘Mental Health Day Off’ with a — ‘Restorative yoga practice for your mind.’

To heal with the help of yoga meditation, you need first to learn the root cause of your anxiety — The Yoga Way!

As per modern medical science, low levels of the brain’s chemicals like serotonin and dopamine are linked to low mood, anxiety, and other depressive symptoms. Ayurveda and Yoga Practitioners call this ‘Nadi Dhosa,’ a.k.a pulse impurity.

Following are the three doshas of our body:

1. Vata Dosha — Vata keeps our internal biorhythms in tune. It guides the body’s physical, mental, psychological, dietary, or environmental changes.

2. Pitta Dosha — Pitta transforms the food we eat into energy. This dosha is the basis of our metabolism because it converts physical, mental, and emotional experiences into vital energy.

3. Kapha DoshaThis regulates the stability and stamina of our thinking and emotional processing. Also, this dosha will maintain our immunity by fighting external physical threats, such as germs.

Again…..What’s Dosha Imbalance?

The levels of these three dosha’s keep on misbalancing when they don’t eat right or move and meditate enough. Plus, dosha levels also get affected due to climate and seasons.

According to yoga and ancient Vedic life science — Ayurveda, anxiety is a Vata Dosha imbalance (high Vata than Pitta and Kapha).

And the best way to pacify your Vata Dosha is by choosing to eat less oily foods junk foods, drink more water, move more often, and meditate daily.
