While creating the daily plan and organizing the day is the first thing most people do in the morning, it turns out that this is a completely wrong technique. What you should do instead is to focus on the body and jumpstart your day by doing some simple stretches which will bring your energy to the next level.
According to Randi Regan, a holistic wellbeing expert, the way you spend the first minutes right upon waking up is of utmost importance. She recommends 6 stretches which are simple, easy-to-do, and which can be done under the covers, too.
1. Full-body Stretch
Take a deep breath, put the arms over the head, and clasp the fingers together. Tip the palms over the wall and then away from you. Make sure your knees are kept straight and the toes are fully stretched. Hold this position for 5 seconds, exhale, and relax. Repeat 3 times.
2. Figure-four Stretch
To do the figure-four stretch, bend the right leg and then cross the left foot over the bended knee. Hold for 5 seconds and then switch legs. This stretch is particularly beneficial for increasing the lubrication in the joints and glutes.
3. Bed-to-floor Stretch
