Work With Your Body: Create Conditions Which Arise From Being Happy

When it comes to finding happiness, it’s essential to understand that you can work with your body to create the physical conditions for happiness. Here are some simple techniques you can use to experience more joy in your daily life: 

  • Stretching: Tight muscles can lead to physical stress and even anxiety. Relaxed muscles promote calmness. 
  • Slow your breathing: Breathing slowly has a direct impact on your heart rate and helps you feel more relaxed. 
  • Exercise: Physical activity releases endorphins, natural mood lifters that can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, leading to feelings of happiness. 
  • Meditation: Practicing stillness in both your mind and body can lead to changes in the brain that support emotional well-being and regulation. 

In the Joy Core Program Yoga, we combine these techniques into one practice, efficiently promoting conditions in your body and mind that support joy. 

Here’s a real story about Wendy, a client who learned to overcome physical and mental stress during the pandemic through these techniques: 

Wendy loved gardening and crafting but often felt stiff and sore afterward due to immobility. She also visited her mother, who had dementia and was in a care home during the pandemic. Wendy felt overwhelmed by these challenges. Through the Joy Core Program, she learned the techniques mentioned above and improved her well-being. 

While you will definitely see instant results, continuing in this direction will build an even stronger foundation of happiness, impacting your mental state and health over time. 

Wendy’s story reflects how these techniques can improve your life: 

“I’ve been part of Frances’ Joy Core Yoga Program for mental wellness, strength, and health for over a year. We’ve learned simple moves, relaxation exercises, and focused breathing practices. After each session, I feel energized and ready to go. One breathing exercise we learned helps me when I’m stressed, like during my last dental surgery. I was totally relaxed before the five needles. Recovery was better too.” Wendy Lockett
