Beat Covid stress with Yoga
Those who performed Yoga regularly had lower stress, anxiety and depression while attaining higher well being and peace of mind during 4-10 weeks of lockdown due to Covid-19 outbreak in 2020 as compared to non-practitioners of Yoga, according to a study done by researchers at IIT Delhi. A study was conducted among 668 adults during Covid-19 lockdown between April 26 and June 8, 2020. The participants were grouped as; yoga practitioners, other spiritual practitioners, and nonpractitioners based on their responses to daily practices that they follow. Yoga practitioners were classified as beginners, mid-term and long-term. The general wellbeing was reported higher by the long term and mid- term practitioners than the beginners group.
