Sometimes we just need some time to relax. We need some time by ourselves with no distractions. This stretching and breathing routine takes 5-10 minutes and will leave you feeling refreshed.
You need to let your body recover from the holiday hustle and bustle by tapping into your parasympathetic nervous system. One of the best ways to do this is through stretching.
Here’s a 5 to 10-minute routine that’s intended to get your body and brain feeling good. During this routine, try to focus on your breathing and clearing your mind more than the movements.
Right leg lizard (1-2 Minutes)
Left leg lizard (1-2 Minutes)
Child’s pose (1-2 Minutes)
Forward fold (1-2 Minutes)
Seated straddle (1-2 Minutes)
