It happens whenever there comes a time when you feel discouraged and without energy and you know that taking a nap or ingesting caffeine to counteract it is not always an option, however, there are some exercises that you can do to recover, only moving your body to oxygenate the blood, stretch and take up a long day again.


1. Walk

Take a short walk preferably outdoors or wherever you are, the important thing is that you maintain a constant rhythm so that your heart rate accelerates, which favors blood circulation, so that you have a higher level of concentration. Do not forget that to get the most out of this exercise, it is important that you also try to go up and down some stairs to exercise your abdominal breathing.

2. Stretch

Surely you don't always have the time or opportunity to take a yoga class, however there are some very easy stretches based on some yoga positions that are designed to re-oxygenate your body and instantly revitalize you. Sit on the floor cross-legged in lotus flower, interlock your fingers with your knuckles in front and raise your arms slowly as you inhale, making sure to fully stretch your spine and open your chest and rib cage, lower your arms exhaling gently but firmly and repeat several times for seven minutes.

3. Breathe

If you do not have the space to perform stretching exercises, you can also take advantage of the revitalizing breathing techniques of yoga: While sitting, fully straighten your spine, put one hand on your chest, another on your abdomen and breathe in such a way that it moves plus the hand you have on your abdomen. Spend a full minute taking a series of abdominal breaths for the count of two, inhaling and exhaling firmly. This type of breathing not only promotes blood circulation, but also helps you with concentration and with conditions such as headaches and back pain that can take away your vitality.
