Start the day right


Are your mornings always rushed? Start your day off on the right foot. Instead of rolling out of the bed and straight into the shower, spend a calm moment in your bed to relax your body and mind.

Take action:

Lie flat on your back and take a few deep breaths; take note of any parts of your body that are sore or tense; slowly raise your knees to your chest; hug your knees to your chest and breathe deeply; slowly drop both your knees to one side and feel the stretch in your back and hips; now repeat the stretch on the other side; when you are ready, slowly roll onto your side and use your hands to push yourself up and out of bed.
