Hey hejhej mats!
Hejhej mats are pioneers when it comes to sustainable and fairly produced yoga mats. Since everything is about mental health for us at the moment, we asked our friends three questions.
How can yoga positively influence mental health in addition to physical fitness?
Yoga is the perfect addition to physical fitness since you focus on training your mind. Your mind is one of the most important parts of your body, yet so few people take time to do something for their mind. We love to meditate and do yoga to care both about our body and our mind. Yoga often starts and ends with a meditation that helps you to settle, to just take a still moment in between the often so hectic daily life. So we love to take some yoga breaks - actually sometimes directly in the morning, in the middle of the day, and in between work, or directly before going to sleep. In these moments of yoga and meditation, we get really calm and relaxed, and afterward we feel strong and balanced. So we would totally recommend anyone to just try it out - it doesn't have to be a really long practice, just starting with a few minutes will already have a great effect.
