If your work involves sitting at a desk for a prolonged period of time, it is important to give yourself breaks, to stretch and release tension in the muscles as well as to allow your eyes to rest.

The above video demonstrates some easy and effective stretches that you can do at your workplace. In addition, remember to take some time away from your computer or books every hour or so to refresh and maintain a good level of focus.

5–Minute Guided Meditation

This is a nice 5-minute meditation session that you can do alongside your usual Yoga practice as well as at the end of the day to unwind and relax.

Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed, and a comfortable position either sitting cross-legged with a separate cushion under your rear, ensuring that your back is straight, or laying down on your back with the palms facing up. Feel free to keep your eyes slightly open, or to gently close them to allow for full concentration.

 

 

~Enjoy!~
