The days may seem longer during summer months, but for most people, that doesn't translate into more time to relax. Between barbecues, beach days, entertaining relatives, travel, and that place you go every day from nine to five (at the very least), this time of year can send stress levels soaring. But there's a simple and effective solution: 10 minutes of yoga.
By taking just 10 minutes during the day to do a few yoga postures and deep breathing, you'll feel calm, relaxed, and rejuvenated. Plus, yoga provides an array of health benefits that improve your daily life. For example: Yoga reduces inflammation and oxidative stress (which helps minimize signs of aging), boosts "feel-good" chemicals in the brain, strengthen immunity, improves posture, combats depression, and increases energy levels.
So the next time you feel overwhelmed, try this 10-minute routine. It's like hitting the reset button on your crazy day. Hold each pose for at least 5 deep breaths and repeat the entire series 3 times.
