Breathe and Move!
Stressed out? When you’re stressed out breathing becomes shallow and muscles become tight. Eliminate stress from your body and your mind with these actions:
Inhale for 2-3 seconds pulling your shoulders up to your ears.
Exhale slowly for 3-4 seconds pulling your shoulders down and back.
Repeat 3 times.
Next head out for a 5-10 minute power walk. Move your arms as you walk and turn over your legs quickly. Walk your hallway, your office, your complex or around the building. A brisk walk forces deep breathing. Deep breathing is where muscle tension is reduced and stress relief happens. Enjoy!
