Yoga is relaxing. Plus, it helps stave off stress and anxiety, builds strength, improves cardiovascular health, and curbs low-back pain. Start your week moving with some yoga on Monday.
This Monday, set the intention to “spice up” your daily walk with different strength-building, mindfulness, and breathing techniques that can be adapted to each individual’s comfort and ability level.
Making slight modifications to your daily routine can lead to monumental life transformations. If you want to expand your range of motion and incorporate more physical activity into your day, then you’ve got to go small and walk home.
