Today is International Yoga Day and also Father’s Day!!!!
Both yoga and a father play a very very important role in our life.
International Yoga Day was proposed by our current Prime Minister Narendra Modi and when the 21st of June was proposed for the same; one relevance was that it’s the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere and has very special significance in many parts of the world.
“Patanjali” is the Father of Modern Yoga. Yoga is a very vital gift to the whole world today that originated in India ..And how proud we all Indians should be for this!!!
Yoga is said to be a union of body, mind, and soul…
It gives you immense peace in this stressful life and helps you to deal with the problems and situations calmly and patiently….
Who on earth today doesn’t have stress?
Each and every person is dealing with some of the other problems…
Following a yoga routine can surely help us deal with this stress.
After all, health is wealth, and keeping this in mind we can surely take out at least 20 to 30 min for ourselves…
After all once a person is sick, though there may be loved ones who will take your care no one surely can take your pain…So we need to take care of ourselves by maintaining a balance of good diet, exercise, and meditation!!!
Though it may not be possible for all to follow a strict routine, one can surely keep a practice of yoga at least 3 to 4 times a week…
So let’s set up a routine for our healthy mind and soul on this occasion of International Yoga Day!!!!
Just for fun….Watch out this cute little kid doing yoga!!!!!
Coming to our other topic – Father’s Day!!!!
A father plays a very important role in our life….
Though always a mother is praised for her role in the upbringing of kids; a father’s role is no less than her…
Just like an umbrella protects you from rainstorms so does a father protect and secure you from all the problems that possibly a family could face…
A father may not show love emotions and kindness always to you …he may appear to be strict to you but behind this act of him is the moto to make you strong so that you face the hard situations of life boldly and with great spirit!!!
He is the pillar of strength, support, and discipline!!! His work for the family is thankless and just can’t be expressed in words!!!
A salute to all the loving and caring yet disciplinary fathers!!!
Thinking of these two occasions together today; a thought just came to my mind…
Why don’t we make a promise to ourselves to follow a yoga routine, keep ourselves healthy, and gift our fathers a healthy we; with a healthy mind and healthy soul, and encourage them as well for the same?
After all which father would not like his son/ daughter to be following a healthy lifestyle? And a healthy soul and mind will surely also lead to healthy relations!!!
Isn’t it true? Do let me know your thoughts on this!!!!
