Regroup With a Yoga Move
Timeless Fitness Tip
Yoga is widely known for its ability to reduce stress and promote a calm, relaxed state. This state reduces the stress hormone levels, decreases the heart rate and lowers blood pressure.
You needn't be into yoga for this pose - this pose is simple and benefits everyone when feeling crazed from a hectic day. Give it a try!
The Yoga Move
Here is what to do:
Lie on the floor with your legs raised against a wall, arms in a comfortable position; exhale through your nose five times in short, sharp breaths and repeat the breaths a total of ten times.
This position drains the blood that can pool in your lower legs and ankles after being on your feet all day. The breathing clears your head while filling your lungs with fresh air.
For added effect - if you wish, light a calming aromatherapy candle with the tangy scents of lime and ginger.
Total investment time: Five minutes for a relaxed evening!
If you have children to tend to, have them join you and settle them down a bit, too!
