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.

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.
