1. Whole Brain Position

Sit up straight. Cross one leg over the other. Cross one arm over the other and fold hands into each other. Close your eyes and sit still and feel the stress drift away.

2. Nadi Shodhan Pranayama

Nadis are subtle energy channels in the human body that can get blocked due to various reasons. The Nadi Shodhan pranayama is a breathing technique that helps clear these blocked energy channels, thus calming the mind.
