Ten yoga positions to fight depression and anxiety…

Ah yes, another quick post today…published between one errand (done!) and another (not done!). 🙂

I just stumbled onto a website showing ten yoga positions that might help fight depression and anxiety (mild forms…read the warning in the first paragraph before trying anything, eh). My favorite position is the last one 😉 : http://goo.gl/CGP9N 

By the way, we MM folks should be careful about some of these positions, especially the ones that put a strain on the back, like #7 and #8. We don’t want to do any damage to our bones, of course! But there are some easy positions, which I think I’m going to try, even though I don’t suffer from depression OR anxiety…far from it, in fact! But hey, doing things like meditating and deep breathing makes me feel soooo good afterwards…Oh, speaking of which, remember to breathe deeply with your belly (diaphragmatic breathing, to be technical). If you don’t know what I’m talking about, see, e.g.: http://goo.gl/MxHxp. Belly breathing makes a huuuge difference! Try it! 🙂
