Yoga, excerise, therapy lessons are all great ways to get over a stressful way and unwind however, none are quiet as effective as the good old traditional method of 'prayer'. Almost every single religion out there, encourages it's followers to do some form of excersice known as 'prayer'. In Islam, it is reffered to as 'salah' and practising muslims have to apply 'salah' in to their everyday life, practising it 5 times a day - at certain time intervals.
This does not only, help to organise your day - as one usually finds themselves planning out their everyday tasks around their prayers but it also, keeps you in check with your emotions and well being.
Imagine that, 5 times a day being allowed to zone out the world and focus solely on yourself and your deeds/ your creator. It's amazing. Especially, if it's done right. You'll feel, more calm, happier and energisid.
It has been scientifically proven that the simple excersices carried out during salah, help to relieve tension in the body and improve blood circulation. As well as, improve your overall fitness. Don't believe me? Check out this site for a detailed coverage of how salah affects your body.
Thats why, for salah ... prayer ... I say ... JUST DO IT!
