A lot of brides unfortunately find planning a wedding extremely stressful, and not without good cause. There is a lot to plan, a lot of people to organise and in this day and age a lot of dietary requirements to deal with!
Brides very often turn to massages the week before the wedding and most swear that this does actually help. There is a lot to be said about destressing during all the weeks running up to the big day rather than only the week before. If you can maintain your composure throughout your planning process, you are less likely to regret any decisions you may have made under pressure.
A proven method of relaxation and mental well-being with the added benefit of toning places you didn’t think could be toned is Yoga.
Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing and this all works to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The core activity is teaching different postures and how to breathe while doing them. This focus on breathing, sometimes in darkened rooms while relaxing and stretching your muscles while listening to soft toned music all contributes to the health of your mind and the ultimate stress relief exercise.
Yoga is very highly thought of as a relaxation technique. What happens when we physically relax? Well the stress melts away along with the tension and people find it easier to put things in to perspective, which increases your ability to think more clearly and solutions to problems seem simpler to tackle. While planning a wedding a bride does definitely need to have a clear head and problem solving is high on her list of priorities.
There are many forms of yoga but some forms are promoted as more relaxing than others. These are our suggestions to try out for a more relaxing experience. Kripalu, Restorative, Sivananda and Yin
If you are a stressed bride then why not try Yoga on a weekly basis in the run up to your wedding. It may be the solution you have been looking for to any sleepless nights.
Yoga is definitely one of the forms of exercise where what you wear will affect your practice. Comfortable Yoga Activewear is essential to allow freedom of movement and flexibility. You also want your fabrics to be soft and comfortable so you can relax in to your practice with ease.
