How often do you remember to breathe? Studies suggest that one of most important times to take a breather is soon once you have woken up. It aims to relax your muscles after a good night’s sleep, & will help you to minimize tension for remainder of day – so you can start as you mean to go on. Here are a few sweet steps to follow:
· Stand up straight &, slightly bending your knees, bend your torso forward from waist. Your arms should be hanging close to floor, limply.
· Take a breath in slowly, returning to your original standing position. You should look like an inflatable ghost you may see at Halloween: your head should be last thing to straighten up.
· Exhale, returning to position of being bent forward by end of your exhale. Stand up straight once you have finished, stretching your muscles as required.
