The demands of living are stressful for adults of all ages. Although one cannot directly point to studies showing a reduction in stress from practicing tai chi the breathing, movement, and mental concentration required of individuals who practice tai chi may be just the distraction you need from your hectic lifestyle. The mind-body connection is one that deserves special attention, as it has been reported that breathing coordinated with body movement and eye-hand coordination promote calmness. While practicing tai chi, the inner sense of peace and calm is indisputable, and so I suggest that you give tai chi a chance if you’re looking for a creative and physically active way to improve how you mentally and physically respond to stress.
