There are many gym exercises to help you shed excess weight or tone your muscles. We found a set of exercises that can do better than that: it will prepare you for the day, normalize your body processes, improve your mood, harmonize the work of your internal organs and straighten your spine.
Now we can lie in bed without feeling guilty for a few more minutes, gradually coming to our senses with these exercises.
Don’t get out of bed in the morning. Allow yourself to lie down and stretch a bit. Take off the head cushion and wrap a towel on a pillow about 8 cm in diameter; it is better to do it the night before.
Place the cushion under your head so that it is just below your shoulder blades, and place your arms behind your head. The task now is to relax and melt into this pillow, like ice cream melting in the sun.
Smile with your lips and eyes and try to smile with your belly, your chest, your whole body, while still lying on your back on the cushion.
All other exercises are performed on the back with the cushion under the neck.
Put your cushion under your neck. Rub your palms together to warm them up and wash them off by rubbing your palms over your face, forehead, and back of your head, then around your ears. Do the same with the neck, chest and stomach.
Still lying on your back with the cushion under your neck, reach your right hand over your left and, applying a little force, rub it from your little finger to your elbow and then lower your waist, twisting everything wrong with your arm. Repeat the same for the other arm.
Do the same with the legs, ‘squeezing’ everything unnecessary from them, first grasp the toes and move the ankle towards the crotch.
Lying on your back, with your knees bent, hold your left heel and rub briskly. It then pushes the sole where it touches the ground when walking, these are its roots. You can find them under each toe, on the sole, and on the heel.
Stretch your body with your fingers interlaced and your hands behind your head. Raise your toes and lower your heels. Then slowly lower your arms and lower your fingers like a dancer. Repeat a few times.
Now we’re going to do a side stretch holding the opposite arm and leg. Bend the leg that rests on the knee and angle it to the side as you turn your head toward your outstretched arm. Then switch your arm and leg and repeat.
Pull your bent knees towards your belly and rest your arms at your sides, simultaneously placing your bent legs to the left and turning your head to the right. Repeat the same with the other side. Do this as many times as you want.
For maximum efficiency, get out of bed and crawl around on all fours, breathing on your stomach.
Now you’re ready for whatever the day throws at you!
