My story of the distracted mind

I practice yoga every day. The exception maybe when I am travelling during the early mornings. I can always feel that my mind is fresh.

But, once I forgot to do yoga. Not all yoga poses but one. That day my mind was so disturbed that I could not focus on anything. Not only that, my mind was surrounded by unwanted and negative thoughts. My whole day was spent into procrastination.

I took it up as an experience and I decided never to drop any of the poses. I will share with you all the poses that I perform on the daily basis.


Method: Sit in a quiet pose. Take your thumb and close one nasal and inhale. Now with one of your fingers close another nasal and exhale, then inhale. Now close this nasal and exhale through the other. Keep repeating it. This is the yoga that I forgot that day and it kept me irritating.

Anulom vilom, inhale and exhale from alternative nose Pranayam,

This is the yoga that will improve your concentration like anything. It also helps in recovering from a cough.


Method: Sit in the lotus pose (padmasana). Keep exhaling quickly. Ensure that your belly is also moving inwards as you are exhaling. 

Kapalbhati, quickly breathing out

This yoga will increase your concentration power. It will also make you look younger. It will increase the energy inside you.

Sirsasana or Headstand

Method: This is very practical yoga to sharpen your mind. Sirsasana is the pose where you keep your body upside down. Your whole body is supported mainly on your hands and partly on your head. Your whole blood is forced through your head.

Sirsasana, headstand benefits for your intelligence

This yoga helps to sharpen your mind as well as enhances your youth. You can do it for 4 to 5 minutes continuously.


This yoga provides peace to your mind and helps for better concentration. You can sit in half a lotus pose. Insert your thumb in your ears and middle finger resting at the corner of your eyes. You breathe in once and exhale slowly with a sweet buzz 'M' sound.

Bhramari, improve your memory with buzz sound

Is yoga the only way to sharpen your mind?

If you will survey the people you suppose to be intelligent. Hardly anyone will say that he is intelligent because of yoga. Certainly, yoga is not the only way to improve your intelligence, but it is the necessary step to improve it.

Doing yoga is the easiest way to improve your intelligence and sharpen your mind.

Sharing is Caring.
