Stress is a constant part of all of our lives, although the reasons for it may vary from person to person. While some stress about their jobs, others may be stressed because of some health issues. If you are a parent or have any other dependant, your stress may even be double that of other people. Sure, for most of us stress comes and goes and even makes us more productive at times. But when it starts to affect your day-to-day functioning, you have to try and manage it with stress-relieving activities. Yoga can be one way to do that.
