Our wonderful bodies have a great way of naturally making us happy – chemicals released in the back of our heads called endorphins.
This is why when many people over the world pray, bowing their heads is included at some point. I am a Sikh and when we go to the Temple to worship, the first thing we do is bow our heads down to God. It is done in Islam and Hinduism too. I would be interested to learn of any other religions who also do this.
Yoga is also great because you bow many times and can release lots in one go. I had this realisation because I did some Sun Solutes this morning and felt exceptionally great today. I wondered what was different today. Then the penny dropped!
Try it. Get on your knees and bow down and get up about 10 times a day. See how you feel.
