The only way left is to practice exercise. but now the question arises is –what kind of exercise should an individual practice to enhance the health. To freshen up the mind, body, and soul and to get the most benefit out of a single exercise. The answer to all these questions is YOGA.  Yoga is not just a need rather it is a necessity of humans to protect themselves from all diseases. Yoga keeps us young and energized. It enhances our life and reduces stress, tension, and anxiety.
