Working a job , raising a family and trying to be the best in all you do is a lot. Sometimes even when you’d like all of your days to be great they fall short and instead frustration, stress and tiredness creep in. It’s Ok. Help is on the way. There’s quick and simple ways to decompress and relieve all of that negative energy out of your body. Check out what 6 tips Blackdoctor.org has offered to help you feel better fast.
1. If You’re Seriously Stressed
The best fix is the one you can do anywhere: breathing. Close your eyes and inhale deeply through your nose. Hold for five counts; exhale through your nose for 10 counts. Repeat for two minutes. This can deactivate your fight-or-flight response and help you relax.
2. Tense Shoulders
Stand with back against a wall, heels together, arms by sides. Slowly roll upper body down, head toward floor, until you’re hanging upside down, arms loose and swinging freely. From here, do eight small, uncontrolled circles with your arms, releasing the tension in your shoulders. Reverse the circles for eight reps; slowly roll back up the wall.
3. Lower Back Pain
Try the Supine Crossover: Lie on your back with legs extended, arms at sides. Gently pull right knee to your chest, holding the back of your thigh. Release and stretch right knee across body to the left as far as you can, keeping both shoulders on the floor, your arms in a T-shape. Switch legs and repeat. Do two times on each side.
