Whether you have five minutes to spare or 45 minutes, you can still experience the stress-reducing, mood-boosting benefits that come with daily physical activity. Here’s how.
If you only have five minutes, stretch it out.
Stretching is one of the best ways to release toxins and relax your muscles, which will help you to start feeling more centered and relaxed. The physical benefits include increased circulation, reduced muscle and joint pain, and a better posture.
If you have twenty minutes, go for a walk.
Though walking is one of the simplest forms of exercise, it can also be one of the most effective. Spend 20 minutes or more a day walking in a park, the gym, or around your neighborhood. You’ll benefit from lower blood pressure, an increased heart rate, a clearer head, and an improved mood overall.
If you have 45 minutes to an hour, give yoga a try.
Yoga is an all-around winner when it comes to the physical and mental health benefits it provides. In fact, a consistent yoga practice can help with a wide range of things, like asthma, arthritis, and insomnia. If you are new to yoga, no need to feel intimidated. You can easily find a routine that works for newbies and is just as effective. Get started with a beginner’s class at your local yoga studio. For a free option, there are tons of great videos on YouTube – like this one.
