Benefits of Sukhasana and Meditation:
Meditation is a healthy practice that helps in gaining a new perspective on stressful situations. It builds skills to manage stress and increase self-awareness. It increases the ability to focus on the present and reduce negative emotions. Meditation also enhances imagination, creativity, patience, and tolerance.
Whereas, Sukhasana stretches and lengthens the spine. It broadens the collarbones and chest. Practising this pose can calm the mind, enhance peacefulness and serenity, and kick out anxiety, stress and mental tiredness. It also improves body posture and opens up the hips.
Earlier, Parineeti was vacationing in the Maldives with her entire family. She also shared several pictures from the island nation. The star event went scuba diving with her brother, Shivang Chopra, and posted regular updates about the experience.
