The way we sit, stand, walk, move and breath can have a very strong effect on our the way we feel and in turn, our health. Since conventional exercises have little strengthening effects on the internal health of our bodies, many modern people have been turning to Tai Chi due to its near-magical effect of bringing harmony between the inner and outer self, through a practical integration of the mind and body.
This ancient Chinese practice has been shown in over 500 medical studies to help:
- Calm the Mind,
- Reduce high blood pressure,
- Prevent falls,
- Relieves arthritis pain,
- Improve Balance for people with heart conditions or diabetes…
Talk about an all-round improvement package?!
And most importantly, Tai Chi brings a general sense of well-being.
So, How Does Tai Chi Work For Stress Relief?
Tai Chi’s slow-tempo movements are perfect to calm down and relax after a hectic day. With the hustle and bustles of modern life, we have been moving at a breakneck speed. This is not good for our health as it can lead to stress which damages both mind and body over time!
Good posture does more than just make us look better. Good body posture has been shown in studies to give people a sense of empowerment, confidence, and make us feel more positive, which can help with feelings like stress or anxiety!
Tai Chi training is the best way for older adults who may be experiencing difficulty balancing themselves due physical limitations on their walking habits alone. Tai Chi’s slow, flowing, mindful movement stretch our muscles in all of the right places while also strengthening them from within to make us feel more agile!
Through it’s movements Tai Chi can help us produce the powerful inner strength that unlocks a power for healing while giving us the valuable de-stressing benefits of a complete wellness system.
Learning Tai Chi could be one of the most enjoyable journeys you ever made. It can give you an opportunity for peace, while you realize how much your body and mind enjoys going back to nature.
