what are the benefits of Surya namaskar?

For some of us, the usual drill of an early morning comprises getting some coffee, sending kids to school, getting ready for work, fix a quick breakfast (if there is a cushion time) that you can munch on the go while commuting to work. The mornings are normally so busy that some of us do not even manage enough time to sit and patiently eat the most important meal of the day, let alone dedicate a fraction of it to some exercise. And, by evening, ache and stress attacks follow that disrupt the harmony of our body and our mind, until we drop dead in bed in an attempt to catch some sleep before the same drill starts all over again. One question arises here – if there was anything you would like to change about your entire day, what would that be? Did you just answer, “Wish the night were just a little longer, so I could sleep more and be less tired during the day.”

Normally, we do not look into the underlying cause behind our body demanding more sleep and, still repetitively hoping to feel more active through the day. We blame it on work and let it out on our loved ones at some point or another. However, the underlying reason behind feeling tired, lethargic, stressed actually depends a lot on the physical and the mental capacity of our body – its protracting levels. Gradually, our capacity to go through the daily routine degrades, if not taken care of at the right time.
By changing a very minute detail of your morning, you can turn it all around into your favor. This can be accomplished by including Surya Namaskar Yoga in your daily routine. By merely syncing your body’s cycle with the solar cycle, you can evolve into a new, fully transformed better version of yourself. It takes 20 minutes of your morning to adjust and add this slight modification.
