How Yoga Helps With Bipolar Disorder

If you have bipolar disorder you know the pain, mood swings, the highs and lows, and everything in between. And, you long for  calm and peace in your life. Today we talk about how to ease bipolar with yoga. As well as the many benefits of meditation for health and wellness.

Yoga brings calm, and helps to ease overwhelming and out of control feelings.

Benefits of yoga:

  • restores confidence so you know you CAN get thing right
  • helps you focus to make better decisions
  • bring balance and normalcy in the chaos
  • improve physical strength
  • increases clarity
  • help combat insomnia while improving sleep quality

And so much  more

When calm is restored there is the ability to get much achieved. A few minutes for daily yoga and meditation are both highly recommended but everyone but for people with “bp” there are benefits beyond measure.

Can Yoga Help All Types of Bipolar Disorder

There are several types of bipolar disorder with varying degrees for individuals. While I prefer not to place people in a box, the Medical Society organizes and names disorders into levels. Here are some of the terms used to describe Bipolar Types.  Type 1, Type 2, Rapid Cycling, Mix and Cyclothymiacs.

The moods swings that are experienced are due to an imbalance of chemicals in the brain. When a person suffers from bipolar disorder, they go though alterations in their neurotransmitters which have an effect on their mental state.

Stress can add to bipolar symptoms; using yoga and meditation can help bring the body and conditions such as fibromyalgia, and the mind into balance.

Benefits of Calm Exercise

Many people think about yoga for exercises but yoga is so much more also used as a meditative practice which integrates breathing exercise. Being able to regulate your breathing when you are in a situation or frame of mind that is particularly stressful, breath will bring oxygen to your brain and help to bring calm naturally.

Breath helps anxiety and depression which can be part of bipolar symptoms and its a natural way to help soothe mood changes. Meditation and yoga helps with mindfulness, which can help organization and bring order into a somewhat chaotic life.

Once you gain control over parts of your life you will realize results you have wanted in your daily life for so long.

If your ready to get some calm in the chaos.
