International Day of Yoga and World Music Day come together on June 21

International Day of Yoga and World Music Day come together on June 21.  I think, this unison fits absolutely in this time, as we all need to sense about ways to improve our health, and a life of melody on this very special occasion.

International Yoga Day is celebrated to raise consciousness about the inclusion of Yoga in our daily lives. It is a great international event that has been ongoing for more than 25 years, in many countries of the world. It is significant that the key aim behind the United Nations making out June 21 as the International Day of Yoga was to highlight the potential of yoga in public health globally.

On the other hand, World Music day marks the beginning of summer solstice in the northern hemisphere. It is a great international event that has been ongoing for more than 25 years, in many countries of the world. Thus, consistently, on June 21 we observe World Music Day 2021 internationally to respect the musicians and singers for making the world a superior spot to live.

Keeping the Covid-19 second wave and its effects into consideration, now it’s time for all to focus more on Yoga. We all will admit that Yoga will help us reduce stress, boost energy, develop immunity system to combat the virus attack.  Many scientific evidence shows that yoga supports mental health, stress management, mindfulness, healthy eating, weight loss and quality sleep. Yoga also gives us mental and physical energy, a boost in alertness and enthusiasm, and fewer negative feelings after getting into a routine of practicing yoga. Research shows that a consistent bedtime yoga routine can help us get in the right mindset and prepare our body to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Yoga is a physical and mental exercise that gives us tranquility, confidence and strength through which those who practise the asana become more productive and resistant in life. In the wake of the corona-virus pandemic, yoga is increasingly being exercised by the people to get immunity. The practice of Yoga strengthens our physical body, as well as the microscopic systems that are not able to be seen to the eye. A strong and disease-free body can be easily maintained by adopting a healthy lifestyle and no doubt, with a regular yoga practice, combined with a few minute meditations in this Covid times, can tackle all mental issues of people and reap the immune-boosting results, though it is not a substitute for medical treatment. 

The idea of International Yoga Day was first proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 27, 2014, during his speech at the UN General Assembly. Right from the outbreak of Covid Pandemic, PM Modi encouraged people to stay active and fit through Yoga during the time of the virus attack. The government has thus decided to celebrate the International Yoga Day through maximum use of digital, virtual and electronic platforms rather than by conducting events that necessitate congregation of people. Joining Yoga Day celebrations virtually at home with family signifies the importance of social distancing and minimizing the spread of COVID-19.

While we also celebrate the Music day the same day June 21, let our family altogether fine-tune Yoga and music together for the sake of peace and harmony in life. With social distancing now essential in this Covid times, one can hardly step out for health clubs and gyms or yoga classes,  putting into practice a basic yoga, music activities regularly at home could be an excellent way to stay fit.
