Harmukta Question by Harmukta on Feb 02, 2023Hindi

Should i do one hour walk and half an hour yoga to loose weight

Ans: The simple answer would be do what you enjoy more and along with it start including 15 to 20 mins of Pranayama and Meditation. Because weight loss results from repetition and consistency - whichever form of movement you enjoy the most will be the most rewarding as you will be highly regular with it. I would also like to highlight that weight loss is a result of many different elements that must work hand in hand. These include a healthy and enjoyable diet, stress management and activity levels. If someone is very active but highly stressed and eating poorly they may not get the desired results. It is also much harder to eat well when we are stressed, which is why I recommend that everyone should do pranayama and meditation for the mind. For the body you can do yoga, walking or gym - it all depends on your personal preference.
