Head stand for good sleep

The head stand is a powerful way to slow down the thinking process and bring an individual to the state of mediation. Sleep is a state where an individual is totally relaxed but unaware. So, to move from mediation to sleep all you need to do is lie down and you are already in a completely relaxed state of mind. Not everyone can achieve the head stand easily but to those who can, it could solve their sleep problems.

Caution: Those with high blood pressure and cardiac problems should avoid the head stand.
