YOGA: The need of the day for kids

Take a look around you, and you will find that whether it is adults or the children, they are busy with their tech devices. Children keep on playing games on their personal computer or mobiles whenever they get time. Adults are busy with other entertainment stuff on their tech devices. In a tech savvy world, children are getting lazier. They are suffering from health problems at a very early age. Seeing the present conditions, should Yoga be made compulsory in schools?

Yoga is a good exercise and it is always good to practice yogic exercises in the morning. Yoga helps to maintain the equilibrium, increases the attention and concentration power, and keeps body fit and healthy. Yoga helps to rejuvenate the body and gives the freshness to the body tissues. Yogic exercises do have a specific time to get the maximum output from them. Many of us prefer to stay fit and try to do the exercise to our best in the way we know. We always feel the necessity to learn the proper way of performing the exercise in the correct posture. Learning such exercises in schools would be the most appropriate way to inculcate this good habit into the lifestyle.

School is the place where the stepping stones get molded and learn to withstand the harsh realities of the world. This form of teaching the yoga in schools will help the children to develop the good habits of performing the exercise in the morning. This will also help in their physical and mental fitness and proper development of their intellectual power. With so many good effects, making yoga compulsory in schools would be welcome move.

 It is but an obvious fact that children are more loaded with the burden of study in the present day competitive world where parents wants them to come at top slot at any cost. Yoga will provide the children with much needed break from their hectic lifestyle of studies and other activities. It is one of the ways that can make children realize the difference between the active life and the passive life. The present generation is suffering from posture problems as most of the time they work on laptops or are busy with mobiles. Yoga helps them to maintain right posture. In the age where everything is open on the internet, yoga helps the children to gain control over their mind and body in all the aspects. One of the most important things is the cost factor. Schools don’t need to spend huge amount of money to impart yoga education to students.
The present day generation whether it is students, youngsters or the adults are really stressed out. They have time for all the unwanted work. When it comes to constructive things, they complain about shortage of time. Making yoga compulsory is in school is a good idea. It will help the students to relax and get control over their mind and body. The benefits outweigh the disadvantages. Moreover, it is convenient and flexible for the school authorities to implement in schools.
