Mid-week laziness is a given but you can turn things around by ‘stretching’ yourself literally!
Here are 3 Yoga stretches that you can try out at any place, any time of the day to feel rejuvenated instantly.
• Stretch your torso with warrior poses: Keeping your left leg firm on the floor, lift your right leg and bend your knee. Hold it with your right hand but make sure to balance yourself at the same time. Now stretch your left hand forward and hold the pose for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Release the posture and repeat the same on the other side.
• Twist the spine and distress: Sit on an even floor, cross your legs one over the other such that your right knee touches the floor and the left knee is perpendicular. Twist your body to hold your feet with your hands as seen in the pix. This will release all stress from your body and make you feel flexible instantly.
• Sit up straight and relax: Though it seems the simplest thing to do, having an erect posture is very important. Keeping the backbone straight, fold your legs as you sit in padmasan or the lotus pose. Rest your hands by the side, touching your knees in the divine pose and breathe easy.
Spending just 6 minutes of your ‘me time’ to workout – can make you feel worth a million dollars. Try!
