Loss of sleep, anxiety, feeling low and lazy are just a few problems that students face.

Yoga, is the ultimate solution. Yoga, as we all know helps physically but it also helps to improve the mental health, which is the need of the hour for students. Doing Yoga for just a few minutes, helps the students to be tension free, healthy and happy. It gives students, the required concentration, focus and energy. There are many postures, pranayama and meditations which have been helping students to gain focus, memorize and retain things during exams and also improve their emotional energy. Some Yoga postures like the Surya Namaskar helps to be fit, increases flexibility and also increases the blood flow to the brain. Pranayams include regulated breathing which helps to calm their mind. Meditation helps them to focus better. The longer one meditates the better.
