1. Tree Pose
A popular standing pose, can help you become more introspective and calm down those racing thoughts that seem to be overwhelming you. It’s also a superb core strengthener. Bear weight on one foot, lifting the other off the floor and turning the sole inside the standing leg, placing it on the outside of the calf or thigh (ankles for beginners.) Place hands in prayer position in front of chest for an added balance challenge. Hold for two minutes on each side.
