Whether you practice yoga or not, stretching your body in the morning, soon after getting out of bed, is an excellent way of sending signals to the body and mind that it’s time for action.
Firstly, gentle stretches create space in every knuckle, which makes you feel light and energetic.
Secondly, moving your body after a long rest flushes you with endorphins, that feel good, slightly euphoric hormone. And that is a great way to start the day.
Thirdly, when you accomplish something first thing in the morning, you send the message to your unconscious mind, we’re on! As a result your brain will more readily solve any problem you throw at it.
I practice morning yoga for a year now, and I can honestly say that without it I wouldn’t be as half as productive and efficient as I am now.
Therefore, I bring to you
