Keeping fit and healthy from head to toe – Shoulder, lungs, arms, and hands
Today this body region is especially susceptible to exercise and looking after it. The highlighted regions today are the shoulders, lungs, arms, and hands.
Exercise your shoulders and arms to keep them toned and flexible. If you have weights at home train the biceps and shoulder area.
Make sure that you add a couple of breathing exercises to your daily routine, even if it is just a few deep breaths. A good exercise for today is – Happy In/Grumpy out. You can do this anywhere.
Take 2-3 really deep breaths. Then on breath 4 imagine that you are in a beautiful area with lots of trees and flowers, maybe at the seaside and you take in a lot of energy and clean air with your breath. Picture these idyllic surroundings from now with every deep breath you take. Then hold your breath and thoughts for a few seconds. When you are ready to exhale, imagine that all your worries, toxins or anything you wanted to get ‘mentally get rid of’ come out with this long, deep breath. Repeat this exercise a few times, ideally 5 to 10 times each day.
This breathing technique is a real stress-buster In or after stressful situations, like an irritating phone call/email or in the car like traffic jams while being late, etc repeat a few of these breathing exercises and you will experience an immediate release of tension and will bring your breath and thoughts back to a normal state of mind. Even better go for a quick walk whilst doing these exercises.
For your hands and arms smoother them with a good hand cream or moisturizer, file your nails and treat yourself to a manicure.
