Tip #1: Do Yoga Poses Specific for Anxiety

Of course, this had to be my first tip! ;)

Anxiety is a feeling of worry or nervousness about something with an unknown outcome. Because our feelings come from the thoughts we have, it is important to be able to experience what is it like to live in our bodies rather than just in our heads. Yoga is a great way to do just this! It's time to have a whole-body experience rather than just an experience that is isolated to our heads and thoughts.

Try these two poses and pay attention to how you feel!

Bound Angle Pose (Baddha Konasana)

  1. Bring the soles of your feet together.

  2. Scoot your hips towards your toes.

  3. Place your hands onto your feet or shins.

  4. Slightly pull with your hands to open your chest and straighten your spine.

  5. Stay for 5 breaths (or more).

Legs-up-the-wall pose (Virprita Karani)

  1. Lay on your right side tucked into a ball.

  2. Move your bum as close to the wall as you can.

  3. Turn onto your back and let your legs go up the wall.

  4. Stay for 15-20 breaths.
