In today’s age, stress is the biggest reason behind most problems, whether in our relationships or our health. It feeds on us on a daily basis, leaving us frustrated, anxious and often directionless. The solution to this modern crisis is the ancient practice of yoga. Studies have shown that yoga reduces stress and improves immunity. There are many yoga poses that one can practice, but considering our busy schedules, here we have 3 poses that one can do easily every day.
Any day you’re too stressed to sleep, the Firm Pose can be helpful. Lie relaxed with your right arm under your head, using it as a pillow. This eases your breathing movements, improves digestion, and therefore, puts you in state of relaxation.
The Snake Pose is known to strengthen your spine. Lie on your stomach with your legs stretched and toes pointed outward. Make sure that your arms are at your sides with palms down and your forehead on the floor. Slowly raise your head and neck upward and backward. Plant your hands on both sides when your head and neck are slightly raised. Inhale and raise your thorax and the upper part of the abdomen while ensuring your body remains fixed to the ground.
Happy Baby Pose
The Happy Baby pose offers a relaxing stretch for your hips and lower back. Lie on your back, bend your knees, and hold onto the outside edges of your feet with your hands. Gently use your upper body strength to pull your knees toward the bed. Stay like this for five deep breaths, then release slowly.
