These three steps are only making me to live against cold.. In the past, i was getting frequently affected by cold.. I missed icecreams, cool drinks and all cold items. .. But now, i am taking cold water bath, having all cold items as my body has gained resistivity against cold.. Only because i do these 3 yoga exercise daily.. Today, By reading an article in newspaper i knew the name of these exercises .. Carefully follow these exercises.. Hope this will be very useful for those who are attacked by cold very often..

1. Kapal Bhathi

Close your right nostril using right thumb. Take a short breathe slowly. Exhale the breathe with slight force and the time of exhaling longer than you inhale. Repeat this for 20-25 times.

Now, close your left nostril with left thumb and do it for 20-25 times. As we know, we inhale oxygen and exhale co2. In this action we are exhaling more time than inhaling the breathe.. It purifies our blood. And when we give a forced output the nasal tracks get warmth and kills virus.

2. Dirgha Shwasan

Inhale and exhale deeply through the nose, 10-12 times. Your stomach should expand when inhaling and your stomach should become flat when exhaling. In any situation if you feel tensed, just go to an isolated place and perform 10 cycles.. You will feel relaxed..

3. Anulom-Vilom

Fold the index and the middle finger of your right hand. Use the thumb to close the right nostril and the last two fingers to close the left nostril, whenever required. Close the left nostril and inhale through the right nostril, then close the right nostril and exhale through the left nostril. Next, inhale from where you have exhaled, i.e. the left nostril, close it and exhale from the right nostril. Repeat similarly about 8-10 cycles.

I personally recommend to do these exercise in vajrasana posture.20-25 mins of this exercise per day will keep you fresh and produce resistivity against cold..
