- In a recent study carried out by Professor of Psychology at University of London, Agnieszka Golec de Zavala, participants participated in two different postures
- While some did Yoga poses, others did power poses (for two minutes) while researchers studied the psychological effects
- Feelings of heightened self-esteem and energy was seen in those who did the Yoga postures
July 21, 2017: Recently, a study was carried out led by Agnieszka Golec de Zavala, professor of psychology at University of London to understand how science can link yoga to happiness. Participants did Yoga poses and power poses for two minutes while the researchers studied their psychological effects.
It was observed that individuals who tried the yoga poses had heightened self-esteem, more energy and over all happiness.
There are different theories as to why this may be true. One of the theory is that the tenth cranial nerve, which is longest nerve in the automatic nervous system responsible for unconcious functions of the body and emotional regulations is somehow linked to Yoga’s psychological effects.
The asanas of Yoga combined with regulated breathing and mind meditation is a healthy lifestyle both mentally and physically. Today, Yoga is popular in most countries of the western societies.
Many studies have established a clear relation between Yoga and the state of happiness. Yoga helps relieve chronic pain. It is also helpful in regulating diabetes, asthma, lymphoma and artery disease. Mental health problems such as depression and disorders can also be successfully managed through Yoga.

A healthy lifestyle can be achieved if Yoga is incorporated into the daily life of the individual. Yoga helps distract the mind through negativity and chaos. Fatigue can be reduced through Yoga as well.
Yoga is also a great way to heighten self-esteem. There have been few studies by science to demonstrate how a posture has an impact on the psychological state of the individual.
The participants who did Yoga poses felt much higher self-esteem than those individuals who did the power poses. They had more energy and empowered attitude about themselves.
The power poses may come across as a more dominant posture, but it was the Yoga poses that helped brain form an empowered image of the self.
The vagus nerve is important in this whole process. It connects the body to the brain. It is a central organ in the automatic nervous system. It regulates breathing, digestion and heart rate.

Afghans lodged more than 17,000 asylum applications in the EU in September, up from 10,000 in August and nearly twice as many as Syrians. This made Afghanistan by far the main country of origin, which Syria had been for seven years until July, the European Asylum Support Office (EASO) said.
Total applications in the EU exceeded pre-pandemic levels for the first time since the outbreak of Covid-19.

EASO said about 71,200 applications for international protection were lodged in the EU in September 2021, up by a quarter from August and the most since November 2016.
For the first time since the outbreak of the pandemic, applications exceeded the last pre-pandemic levels in early 2020.
The rising trend in Afghan applications not only continued, but accelerated.
Applications by Afghans increased by a considerable 72 per cent, from about 10,000 in August to 17,300 in September. This increase partly reflected the evacuations that followed the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in August.
Afghans were by far the largest group of applicants in the EU in September, with almost twice as many applications as by Syrians (9,100), who had been the largest group every month for seven years up to July 2021. While Afghans lodged the most applications since September 2016, their number was still less than half of the all-time high in November 2015.

Turkish nationals (3,000) were the third largest group of applicants in September, continuing to apply at the highest level on record.
Several other main nationalities recorded substantially more applications in September: Bangladeshis (2,800, a new high), Pakistanis (2,700), Albanians (2,100), Venezuelans (1,800), and Georgians and Tunisians (1,700 each). (IANS/PR)
