Whether you are playing with the idea of adding qigong to your life or are a long-time qigong enthusiast, you might ask yourself, “Why do I practice qigong?” This is a valuable question, one I have certainly explored more than a few times over the years.
The answer can be personal and it can vary, depending on what is happening in your life during that time. As we go through the seasons of our lives it is natural to reassess our direction. Asking how qigong can be supportive is a worthwhile exercise.
There is an all-encompassing answer. You will feel better. Plus you will be able to help yourself and others more easily.
Qigong helps improve and maintain health by supporting a state of emotional, mental and physical calmness while creating overall balance and harmony. This allows your whole being to function more efficiently.
If there was ever a time to help ourselves feel better it is now. It is essential to maintain a strong immune system along with an open and calm mind. Qigong can help transform old patterns and provide relief to life’s heavy burdens. It can strengthen your whole being so you are able to stand tall and realize a deeper sense of inner freedom.
There are numerous well-documented benefits to practicing qigong. I encourage you to check out these Qigong for Life Resources that will provide information about the unlimited possibilities for well-being.
Simply put, the main reason to practice qigong is that you will feel better, happier and healthier.
