One of my favorite exercises for a mid-day pick-me-up! Works much better than coffee and offers some additional perks. This is a fantastic exercise to increase blood flow to the brain (hence the pick-me-up), scalp (less grey hair), face (better skin) on top of strengthening the upper body and core! Need more reasons? Think not! Try to enjoy a minute or two daily. Do not get discouraged if it takes you time to find your balance.
If you have never done a headstand, be careful and try the headstand in an area clear of furniture and objects on which you can get hurt. Summon a partner if you need assistance with finding your balance. If you have blood pressure, eye or any other medical issues, please consult with a physician. Protect your neck especially. Always take a break – crown of the head down to the floor and rest – prior to getting up to ensure you do not get dizzy.
