Having one of those days when you just can’t seem to shake off a bad mood and fume at every little thing? Try doing yoga. Here are a few yoga poses to get you back into a good mood,

Open your heart with wheel pose

Open your heart with wheel pose

Sometimes when you’re in a bad mood, you just need to take deep breaths and oxygenate your body. Backbends are great heart-openers and they really boost your spirits. This pose will also get your heart rate up which energises you and helps with crankiness.

Go upside down with headstand


Headstand is another pose that you can try. It flips a switch in the brain letting all the blood flow in to the head.

Challenge yourself with crow pose


One of the best ways to quit being cranky is to challenge yourself. When you hold yourself in an arm balance, you gain confidence and courage and it can help break your pattern of negative thinking.

Apart from these, there are other asanas which can help you release stress and put you in a good mood. Here are a few of them:

Cat pose


This is a really good way to get rid of all that pent-up tension at the back of your neck. It stretches the back, torso and neck providing a gentle massage to the spine and the organs of the stomach.

Child’s pose


This is a great stress buster. It gently stretches the hips, thighs, ankles, calms the mind and helps relieve stress and fatigue. It is also a great remedy for that lower back pain you might have from long hours of sitting.
