Anxiety is a state where your body as well as your mind is held in a perpetual state of rigidity, stiffness and tension.
Releasing these two together may not be the easiest thing on the earth to do. However, reaching out to your mind by relaxing your body, wherein you allow each and every muscle to begin to loosen up and thereby allow complete submission to mother Earth, it would be easy to reach out to your mind for relaxation. The body and the mind is then capacitated to choose to respond to a situation logically than to react to it – the end of Anxiety.
Try this simple supported shavansana, which will take you into the state of a ‘Shava’ -freeing the body of all the locks & thereby the mind of all commotions.
