Simple morning ritual

Standard

I have started to do one simple trick each morning and it has imporved my health and how I feel each day…what could it be?

It only takes about 5 minutes but it has improved my circulation and how I feel when sitting at my computer.   

I get up every morning and as soon as I get out of bed I reach my hands up as tall as I can get, breathing space between each vertebrae.  I take at least 4 or 5 deep breaths here before spreading my arms out to the side and bending straight over.  Again thinking about breathing a full breath of air between each back bone…this will forces me to breath deep into my belly and not just take shallow breaths into my chest…which I too am guilty of as the day progresses.  

I stay bent over touching my toes…or at least trying for a minimum of 10 deep breaths.  Each breath I take, I relax into the stretch a little bit more.  Then I stretch back up to the sky one last time before going about my day.   

When I started to do this I could barely touch my toes at the end but now that I have been doing it for a little while…man do I feel better!!!   Aaaannnddd I can almost put my hands flat on the floor my the end of my stretch.  

Make this part of your morning ritual and I assure you…you will not regret it!!

 

Do you have a morning ritual like this?
