Stress can have a big impact on blood sugar levels. Ayurveda suggests managing stress through various methods such as yoga, meditation, and deep breathing exercises.

Here are some of the best yoga poses that can be beneficial for managing diabetes:

  • Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation): A sequence of poses that stretches and energises your body.
  • Dhanurasana (Bow Pose ): This pose involves lying on your stomach and lifting your legs and upper body, resembling the shape of a bow.
  • Trikonasana (Triangle Pose): A standing pose that involves reaching and stretching, promoting flexibility.
  • Paschimottanasana (Seated Forward Bend): Sitting on the floor, you reach forward to touch your toes, promoting flexibility in the spine and hamstrings.
  • Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose ): This pose involves lying on your stomach and lifting your chest, which can help strengthen the back muscles.
  • Halasana: In this pose, you lift your legs over your head while lying on your back, which can help stimulate the thyroid gland and calm the nervous system.
