There is nothing worse then already feeling wiped out before your week begins. Monday feels like Friday and weekends are gone in a flash. It turns out that some simple Yoga poses can be the best remedy!
There’s many ways to deal with stress, but it’s wise to look for some techniques for lasting relaxation and balance. There’s junk food, movies, alcohol, caffeine and many other coping mechanisms, but they’re only effective for temporary pleasure. Your muscles will still be aching, your stomach will still be upset and you will still feel overwhelmed at the end of the day.
Stress results in increased levels of toxins in the system, which can be deposited in muscles and tissues which causes sickness and lethargy. It is preferred to remove these toxins from the body by adequate hydration, a healthy diet and improving the body’s blood circulation to drain your muscles and tissues.
With that established, it is better to avoid high carbohydrate foods for a sugar rush and switch to exercise and yoga to relax and let the stress pass. Yoga asanas not only help relax muscle tension, they also assist in removing toxins from the muscles by improving their blood supply.
The following yoga poses target at easing muscle tension, improving blood flow and handling stress.
