15. Try At-Home Yoga
Yoga has been practiced for more than 5,000 years. Close to 11 million Americans practice yoga to calm their mind, relieve and prevent chronic medical conditions, and increase flexibility and strength. Yoga harmonizes the mind with body, decreasing anxiety and stress hormone levels and promoting concentration and a good mood.
Focusing on your breathing during yoga disengages you from your thoughts and helps to calm the mind. Each yoga session ends with five to ten minutes spent relaxing in corpse pose, or “savasana,” and you finish with a sense of well-being and feeling of “oneness” with the world around you.
Yoga in the studio can burn a big hole in your pocket, so try at-home yoga with a video. You can also try to do yoga right in your car on your commute (but not with a video). Some libraries carry yoga videos, or you can get cheap yoga videos from Amazon.com or Half.com. If you need to buy a yoga mat, opt for larger, discounted sporting good stores instead of studios or boutiques.
Cost: Free (borrow from library) or $1-20 (on Amazon.com and Half.com)
More Info: Visit Amazon.com or Half.com to get cheap yoga videos or your library may have videos to check out.
