Top 10 Teenagers tips

Corpse pose (Savasana)

Benefits: Savasana brings a deep, meditative state of rest by releasing stress. It helps repair tissues, reduce blood pressure, anxiety, and insomnia. It is a perfect way to end a yoga session. How to:

  • Lie flat on your back. Use a small pillow behind your back if required. Close your eyes.
  • Keep your legs comfortably apart, relaxed, and toes pointing towards outside.
  • Leave your arms relaxed alongside your body and keep your palms facing upwards.
  • Bring attention to every part of your body, and try to relax your body.
  • Keep breathing slowly and gently.
  • Make sure you do not fall asleep.
  • Stay in the same pose for 10-20 minutes and then gently roll onto your right, while still keeping your eyes closed. Lie there for a minute or two. You can begin with just a minute or two and work up to a longer time.
  • Take the support of your right hand and come to the sitting position.
  • Open your eyes when you feel relaxed and de-stressed.
  • If you experience distress or pain, come out of the posture.

Place your travel pillow backward.

An experienced traveler shared a life hack that helps him sleep well onboard planes. All you need to do is use a travel pillow backward. In this case, the pillow will serve as a support for your chin and your head won’t bend forward. At the same time, the back of your head also has support — the seat itself.

Take care of your hair.

In order to prevent hair from electrifying and to make it look neat, experts recommend tying a scarf on your head. Also, to protect your mane from dryness, you can apply a leave-in conditioner to the hair. These measures will make any flight harmless for your hair.
