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
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.
