PUT YOUR FEET UP AGAINST A WALL TO SOOTH YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM…

Foot Pain

Try the classic yoga pose by putting your feet up against a wall. It soothes the nervous system and promotes deep relaxation of mind and body. All you do is lie on your back on the floor with your legs resting on a wall. Then gently shuffle your bottom forward to the base of the wall so your legs form a 90 degree angle. Now relax your arms by your side, close your eyes and breathe deeply and slowly for five minutes. When you are ready to get up, slowly bend your legs and ease them to one side towards the floor.

Researchers in Boston have found that Yoga is very calming because it boosts levels of the brain chemical Gab Am which acts as a natural anti-depressant. If you can’t get to a class then buy the audio CD ‘Gentle Daily Yoga, from http://www.wellbeingworldonline.com

  1. I remember as kids we used to put our feet up against walls as a matter of course. Don’t think it was to calm us down, however 😉 That’s a really nice tip, Barbara, by the way :yes:

    • I had to do it in a Hotel last year after my feet swelled up so much from the flight. It does work but it’s a bit uncomfortable after a while. I’m going to go for water tablets instead this year :))

    • Hi m, yes it was a nice quiet one, I managed to catch up on some lost sleep and do a bit of writing. Hope yours was a good one as well. Trouble is the weekend’s fly by too quickly. We are snowed in at the moment so I’m not going anywhere for the time being as I’m sure to fall in the slippery snow. I must try some more stretches, hope your having a good day today pain wise. 🙂
