A human brain is a complex organ that works 24*7 for 365 days without rest. No matter even if we are sitting idle, our mind is still working, either thinking or creating scenarios. Moreover, surviving in this current situation, dealing with the pandemic is no less than a struggle. And, if a popular survey is to be believed, often a calm and composed mind has the capability to think and perform better. 

For the same purpose, we have jotted down a few Yoga asanas that could help us boost the grey matter of our brain. To a name, a few, first answer this question, is your mind racing, if yes? Then why don’t you opt for an inverse position or a headstand? Headstands are the best exercises when it comes to calm our brain as well as relieve stress or any sort of anxiety. Not only this, but it has also been a proven yoga asana to get rid of headaches. 

Some other asanas are listed below-
