Can you tell me the capitals of all the states of India? Okay, how about the seven North Eastern Sisters? Well, can you at least tell me the names of those states? If these questions are difficult for you, think about your kids! How hard these things must be on them. With the vast educational course, it is really hard to remember everything. Besides, there are a handful of children suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder (or ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (or ADHD). If you are worrying about how your child is going to remember all these things, with the poor memory he/she has, or the lack of attention, before making them gobble down those memory boosting capsules, give him/her a good head massage with almond oil and make them do the following yogasana. These are easy and do not have any side effects.




1. Garudasana










Stand up straight. Now bend your right leg and cross it over the left knee.




Bend the left leg as well.




Continue to ‘wrap’ your right leg around the left by hooking your right foot around the left calves.

It is important to remember that, it is possible for different people to have a good memory and interest in different areas. It is not necessary that if your one child is good at remembering and learn the poems, the other child will follow the previous one’s footsteps. Maybe he/she is good with geography. Besides, instead of stressing over it, burn a couple incense cones/sticks or aromatic candles, relax and ask your child to perform yoga.
