Allocating some of your morning time to stretching is a great serotonin boost to help you get through the day. May it be for just 10or 20 minutes, as long as you stretch your muscles and have a quiet time.
Stretching is also a calming exercise for the mind amidst the thoughts of a busy day ahead. So, to give you some poses to start, here are the three best morning stretches you can do.
This first pose is one of the most famous yoga staples that help stretch your body's upper parts. You must first kneel with your hips and butt resting on your legs and feet, respectively, to do the pose.
Next is to straighten your arms like you're reaching the top of the ceiling or anything above you. Then practice your breathing before reaching forward until your palms reach the floor. Remember to stretch your spine, or lower back, while reaching forward.
This next pose is from two different poses, Marjaryasana and Bitilasana. It helps your spine release tension while ensuring that your arm, back muscles, and abdominal are taken care of.
You can do this pose after the Child's Pose by pushing yourself up. The placement of your body should look like you're doing push-ups but maintaining the top of your feet flat. After that, you can start doing the movement by dropping your belly and letting your spine feel the stretch.
Continue doing this for five breaths.
Another familiar warm-up exercise is neck stretching. This step will help your body release all the stress from your sleeping position.
The movements are easy. The first is to place your left hand on the right part of your head. Then push your left ear down to your left shoulder. Hold this position for 15-20 seconds while inhaling slowly. Repeat this step on the right side, downward, and upward.
There are many other stretching poses that you can do if your time permits. But these three are the best ones you can do, even during time constrained situations. It's easy and effective.
The final tip would be not to rush things while doing the poses, even if you're tired already. Just focus and remember to practice normal and calm breathing, as it helps calm your system.
