The world around us has changed, as I write this I feel conscious of my surroundings, of people around me, of generally everything and I think its a good thing, right? I mean this is the state in which we should all exist, aware and self reliant, we have led a life of being a part of the usual for way too long, I think we have a chance here to turn things around for the better. It's THE RIGHT TIME to self introspect and engage with the general well being of our small world that is our HOME, its a starter for starting to look at the bigger picture where our Home is this planet we inhabit, let's start small but let's get started!

OurBetterPlanet supports this and facilitates this process of starting from your own home, we have thoughtfully curated some products from some upcoming sustainable businesses to come up with a few that can help you relax when at home and also inculcate some practises that can be continued forever because consistency is indeed the key!

Kosha Yoga Co. is an India based sustainable yoga products brand that makes well researched yoga mats, active wear and accessories to help you have a mindful practise at home. It is advised to start practising yoga as it has long term benefits and helps both mind and body relax, it really makes you aware of your surroundings and lets you be! A couple of breathing exercises that can really help us deal with the current stress and that if continued help with complete relaxation are listed below:

  • Kapalbhati
  • Analom Vilom
