Stress can be a reason for many problems. For example, 37% of people who suffer from stress say they feel lonely as a result, according to a survey. But it’s up to you to calm your mind and not let anxiety win, and yoga can be a great way to do this. Even if you’ve never done yoga before, there are simple but effective poses that are excellent at relieving stress.
We at Bright Side also practice some yoga and would love to share some easy poses that can relax your mind.
1. Eagle seal
You can practice the eagle seal pose along with meditation, so there’s no fixed time on how long to hold it. The pose helps to relax and discipline your mind when it becomes overloaded.
- Turn your hands so your palms are facing up.
- Cross your right hand over your left.
- Clasp your thumbs. The rest of the fingers of the hands should stay extended, keeping the palms open.
