There are many workouts in the gym that will help you shed excess weight or pump your muscles. However, we have found a set of exercises that can do better than that: it will set you up for the day, normalize your body processes, improve your mood, harmonize the work of your internal organs and straighten your spine. . .
Now we can stay in bed without feeling guilty for a few more minutes, gradually returning to our senses with these exercises.
Don’t get out of bed in the morning. Lie down and stretch a little. Remove the pillow from under your head and wrap a towel over a pillow about 8 cm in diameter; it is better to do it the night before.
Place the pillow under your head so that it is just below your shoulder blades and place your arms behind your head. The task now is to relax and melt on this pillow, like ice cream melting in the sun.
Smile with your lips and eyes and try to smile with your belly, your chest, your whole body, still lying on your back on the pillow.
All other exercises are done on the back with the pillow under the neck.
Place the pillow under your neck. Rub the palms of your hands together to warm them and “wash” by rubbing your face, forehead, and neck, and then going around your ears. Do the same with your neck, chest, and stomach.
Still lying on your back with the pillow under your neck, take the right hand of the left and, applying a little force, rub from the little finger to the elbow and then further down the waistline, thus ‘wringing’ everything bad from your arm. Repeat the same for the other arm.
Do the same with the legs, “wringing” whatever is unnecessary about them, first holding the toes and bringing the ankle up to the crotch.
Lying on your back with your knees bent, grab your left heel and rub it vigorously. Then, push the sole where it touches the ground as you walk; these are your ‘roots’. You can find them under each toe and on the sole and heel.
Stretch your body with your fingers intertwined and your hands behind your head. Pull your toes up and your heels down. Then slowly lower your arms and pull your toes down like a ballerina. Repeat a few times.
Now we are going to do a side stretch, extending the opposite arm and leg. Bend your resting leg at the knee and tilt it to the side while turning your head toward the elongated arm. Then move your arm and leg and repeat.
Now you are ready for everything the day can hold for you!
