In one of my previous blog posts, I talked about emotional resilience. Today I want to discuss physical resilience and how yoga helps develop the muscle strength that can make one feel physically strong ...
Ageless-Yoga helps develop the physical resilience we are talking about here!
Author Gregory S. Williams wrote, ''On the other side of a storm is the strength that comes from having navigated through it. Raise your sail and begin''. This relates to the body's physical ability to adapt to challenges.
Katie Hurley, of the Resilience Resource Center, says that it is about maintaining stamina and strength and recover quickly and efficiently!
Resilience is a person's ability to function and recover when faced with illness, accidents or other physical demands. Katie also explains that physical resilience plays an important role in healthy ageing, specifically as people encounter medical issues and physical stressors.
She advises that healthy lifestyle choices, building connections, making time to rest and recover, deep breathing and engaging in enjoyable activities all play a role in building physical resilience.
On a personal level, I find comfort in noticing the muscle tone in my own body that comes from practising yoga regularly. It makes me feel physically strong and in control of my life because it gives me a sense of independence as I grow older.
It takes time, self-control and discipline to practice regularly. As the quote states, facing the hardship head-on and navigating through it will bring the feeling of satisfaction and achievement in the long run.
So, it is always a case of starting and before you know you will notice changes in your body that will give the strength to continue. With it will come the physical resilience we are talking about here.
