The component of yoga meditation increases your self-awareness. This means you become more aware of what you feel and what you think. This makes it easy for you to evaluate yourself, reflect on, and modify your emotional response to daily stresses and difficulties.
When you learn to change your emotional response, you also learn to put things in perspective. You will find yourself rejecting anxiety and depression. Slow breathing which increases blood flow to the brain also helps lift the mood. You become more positive in your view.
