5 Ways the Body & Brain Yoga Tai Chi Book Helps You Be More Productive

5 Ways the Body Brain Yoga Tai Chi Book Helps You Be More Productive
Whether you're working at home or elsewhere, for a paid profession or the invaluable job of caring for loved ones, it's easy to get tired and run down. You may start the week strong, but by hump day (Wednesday for many of us), your body and brain are lagging. You may feel like you just can't keep up.

Simple, mindful exercises done in short periods of time can keep your body and brain tuned up and turned on. The bookBody & Brain Yoga Tai Chi: A Beginner’s Guide to Holistic Wellness by Body & Brain Yoga Education has these essential exercises. Its step-by-step descriptions with full-color pictures help you do them anytime you feel your productivity or passion waning.

Body & Brain Yoga Tai Chi is a mind-body-spirit practice developed by Change Your Energy founder Ilchi Lee. Unlike common forms of yoga from India, Body & Brain Yoga Tai Chi is based on East Asian energy principles and the idea that the brain is the command center for the body and its energy system. Rather than a series of poses, it uses energy meridian stretching and rotation, vibration and breathing exercises, and energy meditations to awaken practitioners’ ability to feel their own energy—the medium that connects the body and brain. They also learn to use that energy to affect their brain and body to improve their mindset, habits, emotional balance, and physical wellness.

Here are 5 ways Body & Brain Yoga Tai Chi helps you be more productive:

  1. 1. Strengthens Your Core
    Abdominal exercises key to the Body & Brain Yoga practice not only work your muscles, they build up the internal energy stores you need to blaze through your to-do list.
    Relevant Exercises: Dahnjon Tapping, Intestinal Exercises

  2. 2. Balances Your Energy Flow
    While your core needs to be warmed by fiery energy, your head needs to stay cool if you're going to get anything done. Exercises for the lower body keep your body's energy flowing smoothly to maintain this balance.
    Relevant Exercises: Toe Tapping, Unkibohyunggong (tai chi foot form)

  3. 3. Deepens Your Breathing
    Your brain loves oxygen, and so do the rest of your organs. Yet, daily stress, tension, and inadequate movement makes our breathing shallow. Releasing stress and tension with mindful stretching and breathing helps keep you quick and creative.
    Relevant Exercises: Dahnjon Breathing (Abdominal Breathing), Chest Opening

  4. 4. Loosens Your Joints
    Much of our tension and inflexibility comes from our joints. It's hard to do what you want if your body slows you down. Rotating your joints not only loosens up your body and mind, it improves your circulation so you can go for your goals.
    Relevant Exercises: Bowing Meditation, Plate Balancing Exercise

  5. 5. Calms Your Brain Waves
    Instead of putting you to sleep, slowing down your brain waves helps you see situations more clearly and find better solutions. Vibration exercises move your mind into such a state of alert, yet relaxed focus.
    Relevant Exercises: Brain Wave Vibration, Belly Button Healing
