Coping with Covid-19 pandemic: How Yoga can help entrepreneurs beat the stress

Many entrepreneurs understand the importance of staying fit, not only physically, but mentally as well. In the wake of Covid-19 pandemic, stress management has always been a hot topic. People have realized that sometimes, mental well-being is even more important than physical health, as it can push you to the brink, if not kept in check.

This is where Yoga is being seen as a comprehensive solution to manage both the aspects of a human body, especially in testing times like the current pandemic. Especially, the entrepreneurs are considering this ancient technique or methodology to take complete control of their body. These individuals have to make many important decisions every day, and the significance of having the right approach cannot be undermined, which obviously comes with a stable mental and physical well-being. 

Sometimes, shepherding an organization can drain you as a leader. Thus, it becomes important to check your physical and mental state regularly, while acknowledging the good and accepting the flaws, before looking for the remedy. Many entrepreneurs are recognising this phenomena by giving adequate time to Yoga. One such entrepreneur is Rajat Khare, the founder of investment firm Boundary Holding, who has taken a liking to yoga and shares his insights about the same on his Facebook page. According to him, he has benefitted a lot from yoga and considers it as an integral part of his journey around the entrepreneurial orbit. 

Many celebrities, sports personalities, politicians and high profile business tycoons have shared their thoughts on Yoga. People like David Beckham, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Madonna, Russel brands, etc., have been practicing Yoga actively. However, in business, it is a continuous process and the progress is made rather slowly. It is all about being patient, instead of thinking about results from the word go.

Yoga teaches us to check our pace, step back orleap forward and appreciate the good, while abandoning the bad. It is a reminder, a short escape from the monotonous schedule. Instead of paralysing yourself with the never-ending to-do list, entrepreneurs can learn the art of admitting their mistakes and appreciating the brilliant decisions, instead of spending the entire day tracking the results.
