You can't deny the benefits of yoga when you set your goals for a healthier living. I do it every morning because it helps me start my day. When I wake up I often feel drowsy and my body is all tight. After half an hour of yoga, I'm stretched and energized and ready to take on the day.
Begin a yoga routine each day or a few days a week and you will immediately feel less stress and cope better with what you have to deal with on a daily basis. There is a great book to read along with your yoga practice, it is by Deepak Chopra The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga: A Practical Guide to Healing Body, Mind, and Spirit The book will help you a great deal with the understanding of yoga, mantras and the benefit of using both.
In the evening, breathing and relaxing exercises, mantras and meditation are a perfect way to end the day. Avoid television before going to sleep, opt for half an hour of yoga and meditation instead. This will surely help make you sleep better at night. And a good night sleep always precedes a good morning.
