"I was happy to be getting back to work, but I was also anxious about leaving my two babies and family behind. It just felt weird and I knew I needed to control not only my anxiety, but also have control on my thoughts," she writes in the caption of her post.

Pranayama, she says, is the one way to solve it all. It is essentially a mediation practice which involves deep breathing. Doing for 10-20 minutes in a day can make you feel energetic. It can uplift your spirit and make you feel more enthusiastic, calm and positive. Having this kind of state of mind can help you make better decisions, improve your mental health and make you feel happier.
There are several kinds of pranayama like bhramari pranayama or kapal bhati pranayama. Both involve different kinds of breathing. Even breathing in and breathing out through your nose can help you deep breathe and meditate, and give you calm state of mind.
Along with pranayama, you can also include other yoga asanas like surya namaskar, or some other stretching exercising. Starting your day on a healthy not can avail you with multiple physical and mental health benefits. How did you start your day today?
