It is well known that practicing yoga can help you keep your mind and body healthy and lead a balanced and happy life. But, the great thing is that yoga is not just about the mind and body. The principles of yoga can also help you create a healthy and balanced investment portfolio. In our maiden ‘Yoga for your mind, body, and portfolio’ Money Konnect Podcast by Edelweiss Mutual Fund, we discuss how the Surya Namaskar is central to both the practice of yoga and investing.
· The Surya Namaskar is a combination of twelve asans with each asan benefiting us in a special way. Similarly, our portfolio should comprise multiple asset classes so that it can benefit from the unique properties of each asset class.
· The Surya Namaskar also teaches us about the importance of discipline. It is only by practicing Surya Namaskar daily can we hope to achieve the true benefits of yoga. Similarly, only by investing regularly and following a financial plan in a disciplined manner we can hope to achieve our financial goals.
· The holistic approach of the Surya Namaskar gives us the ability to control our emotions and stay calm. This way, we can make better investment decisions when market prices start moving a lot and our emotions start influencing us.
