Brian C Jensen: Here is Daily routine to feel refreshed and stress-free:
- Its 6am, you wake up and turn off your alarm clock. It’s time to start the day. But before you do, take a few moments to do some basic yoga stretches.
- Since you’re already lying in bed, it’s the perfect time to practice diaphragmatic breathing for five minutes. This type of breathing is not only relaxing, but also oxygenates your body and mind.
- For many people this moment of peace, stretching and breathing is the only time they take to focus on their well-being.
- But you can do better!
- As soon as you get out of bed, go outside for a walk or jog. This way your body receives an immediate signal to release stress hormones like cortisol.
- It’s also important to drink enough water throughout the day so that all your cells stay hydrated. Eight glasses per day should suffice – but remember: not too much, or it will have adverse effects on your metabolism.
- Long walks are not just good for the body but also help you feel calmer and more relaxed because fresh air stimulates feelings of happiness in our brains. If this doesn’t work, try listening to music or watching something funny on TV.
- If you feel that your stress levels are increasing, it’s best to take a quick break and focus on something else for a few minutes. Try calling a friend or going outside for a breath of fresh air.
- Then it’s time to eat something – breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Even if you don’t have much time, make sure to drink two glasses of water and eat something healthy within the hour after waking up – pancakes with maple syrup aren’t exactly good for you! When you’re relaxed after eating, be productive: plan out your day, write down some tasks etc. And whatever is left over from yesterday that needs to get done? Get started right now
- This way you’ve already gotten a lot of things done before the busy day even begins!
- Morning sunshine brightens our mood, improves our memory and metabolism. That’s why it’s so important to spend time outside every day. If it’s too cold or your bedroom is too far away, open up the curtains for some morning light instead.
- But remember to close them again before you leave for work! Sunlight can also cause eye fatigue after staring at screens all day long.
- While this routine may seem rather complicated, try making little changes gradually until it becomes a habit that helps you stay healthy and feel better every day.
- We wish you a lot of success on your journey to happiness!
I don’t have time for this!
Brian C Jensen says you can always find 10 minutes in your day. Whether you’re waking up, brushing your teeth, waiting in the morning traffic or watching TV at night – try doing some stretches or drinking water instead. You can even do both!
Are there any exercise routines that could replace these stretches?
Stretching is an integral part of many sport disciplines so it’s difficult to come up with one exercise routine that will be equally good for all people. But in general, long-term stretching helps reduce muscle tension and improves concentration in the later stages of life.
