Not everyone is a morning person, so finding the right out of bed can be a bit of a challenge. You may even find heading to bed earlier an ineffective solution to your morning woes.
Try 10 minutes of Yoga, with it you will feel more energized after getting out of bed. These Yoga practices are also great for balancing your body and focusing your mind.
The best part is that for this, you do not need any special workout gear or studio space- these beginner-friendly yoga poses can be done on a mat or in the comfort of your living room.
Yoga is not just good for your body; it is also great for your soul. Jump-start your morning with this blissfully short yoga routine:
Start your yoga routine with a child's pose. Concentrate on relaxing your body and deepening your breath. Make your way onto your hands and knees.
Start-up to alternate between back bending (as you inhale) and rounding forwards and up (as you exhale). Repeat the same process three to five times.
After the child poses, move to the tabletop; with your shoulders stacked over your wrists and your hips stacked over your knees. Make sure to place equal weight through your hands and knees, relax your feet, engage your abdominal muscles, and lengthen your spine. The gaze is down between your hands.
In cases, it bothers your knees; you can place a towel or rolled edge of a yoga mat underneath your knees for better support.
Cat Pose is considered as perfect for spine and belly organs. This pose provides a gentle massage to these organs. Under this yoga practice, you need to press into your hands to round your upper back.
As if a string were pulling the middle of your back to the ceiling. In the next step, drop your head and tuck your chin to the chest, hugging your belly toward the spine.
If you are dealing with belly fat and stiff limbs, the low cobra poses the best solution for you. This pose helps blood circulation by relaxing almost every muscle of the body.
At the same time, it supports your organs to absorb nutrients more effectively. Make sure to keep your neck and head as straight as possible while doing the low cobra to get the best outcomes.
Walk your hands forward an inch or two, curl your toes underneath, and lift your hips into a downward-facing dog. Your legs can keep a slight bend, but reach your heels toward the floor.
Ground down through all your fingers, mainly the space between your thumb and first finger, and press through your arm while lifting your hips up and back. Stay in the same position for 3-4 breaths.
Slowly walk your feet towards your hands, and step shoulder-width apart. With a slight bend through your knees, lower the top of your head towards the group, belly reaching to thighs, and dangle down your hands to your toes.
Try to give complete relaxation to the upper body. Now move your neck around here, explore how it feels to bend and straighten your knees, acknowledging tension in any part of your body.
Halfway Lift is going to be your first choice if you want to follow some practices to relieve tension in your neck and head. For this, keep your upper body parallel to the ground while standing.
People who are suffering from mild depression, are advised to hold this position since it supports blood to flow more freely to their brains. The halfway life has been found to stimulate your kidneys and liver, enhancing the natural detoxing process of the body.
Keep your lower body functioning properly with Low Lunge; do it regularly for the best results. Low Lunge boosts lower-body flexibility by releasing tension in our quadriceps, hamstrings, and groin muscles.
It also helps in improving the lower body's range of movement; athletes of any sport should do this practice.
Swoop your arms up to the sky, standing tall. Try to keep equal weight through both of your feet, with strong legs and an active core. Soften your shoulders away from your ears and extend your fingertips up while your palms face one another. Your body is one long line from energy, head over shoulders over hips and heels.
Continue the process, breathe to 3-5 counts, close your eyes, and arranged a purpose for your day.
These are the best yoga practices that you need to follow daily to remain mindful and put the system in place. If you establish a morning routine and stick to it for at least 2 weeks, these good habits will soon become the norm.
