crop8_240x240_15sep14When you’re having one of those days when you just can’t seem to shake off a bad mood and fume at every little thing, try doing yoga.

Here are a few yoga poses to get you back into a good mood, reports

* Open your heart with wheel pose: Sometimes when you’re in a bad mood, you just need to take deep breaths and oxygenate your body. Backbends are great heart-openers and they really boost your spirits. This pose will also get your heart rate up which energises you and helps with crankiness.

* Go upside down with headstand: Headstand is another pose that you can try. It flips a switch in the brain letting all the blood flow in to the head.

* Challenge yourself with crow pose: One of the best ways to quit being cranky is to challenge yourself. When you hold yourself in an arm balance, you gain confidence and courage and it can help break your pattern of negative thinking.
