Legs-Up-The-Wall Pose—a sup­ported vari­a­tion of Vi­parita Karani, a shoul­der­stand-like pose—is a great way to ease ten­sion, headaches, mild de­pres­sion, di­ges­tive is­sues, and many other ail­ments. To give it a go, sim­ply lie in an L-shape with your legs ex­tended up the wall in front of you, and place a thick folded blan­ket or pil­low un­der your lower back. Stay in the pose for up to 15 min­utes to re­store your mind and body. Whether you suf­fer from full-blown anx­i­ety or just get the jit­ters on oc­ca­sion, en­joy a cup of chamomile tea— or try sup­ple­ments! One study found that pa­tients with mild to mod­er­ate gen­er­al­ized anx­i­ety dis­or­der ex­pe­ri­enced fewer symp­toms af­ter sup­ple­ment­ing with chamomile ex­tract for eight weeks.
