Corner in my meditation/yoga/guest/shoe room
One reason I have been feeling better is that I start my days upside down, something I used to do every now and again and now follow religiously. Every morning I spend a minute in the head stand position (a minute is quite long when you're upside down...). As a result my back and shoulders feel stronger and I am more balanced. The head stand is said to revitalise the whole body, improve concentration and coordination and help to open yourself to the spiritual side of life.
It is also good for your skin, as it sends the blood into your head and reverses the effects of gravity. And it certainly gives you a different perspective, just like sleeping with your head at the other end of the bed. . I do the shoulder stand shortly after the head stand -this is important, particularly if you suffer from anxiety, as the head stand stimulates the nervous system, while the shoulder stand soothes it.
This is all part of trying to do some yoga every day. My younger sister and her husband wisely gave me a book called Yoga for Wimps. Between that and my Jivamukti Yoga book, I am developing a sort of routine.
P.S.: This article lists even more benefits of the head stand.
