- Improved concentration. When you take the time to slow down and listen to your breathing, you learn to concentrate more deeply, and to become more self-aware. This enhanced awareness may make you more productive in your business dealings, as well as in your personal life.
- Improved overall health. Each of these practices may improve blood flow to various areas of your body, can lower your blood pressure and might even boost your immunity. Better physical health results in more productivity and, indirectly, a more profitable bottom line.
- Stress relief. Both yoga and meditation can lower your breathing rate, temporarily slow down your heart rate and help you achieve a sense of peacefulness. This translates to a more serene you when it comes to both your personal and professional relationships. Imagine going through your day feeling at ease and without much of the stress that plagues you; chances are, you would be much more productive and more satisfied, overall.
- May resolve specific health conditions, at least temporarily. If you suffer from anxiety attacks, these practices can help you to calm down and grasp control of the situation. Headaches and muscle tension may lessen in response to the gentle stretching that accompanies yoga. There is even some evidence that holistic practices such as yoga and meditation may reduce the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, insomnia and depression.

What are some of the benefits of yoga and meditation? Here are a few:
