How many times have you said to yourself, “Next Monday, I’m going to the gym” or “I’m going to start riding a bike and running in the morning!” and then end up breaking that promise? Our bodies need physical activity in order to stay healthy. But it tends to be hard to find enough time for fitness or other activities: work and home duties take a lot of time. It is great that coaches have come up with a series of simple exercises that you can do at home in order to keep your muscles in shape.
We at Bright Side know that the price for all the cookies we’ve eaten and the sedentary lifestyle is extra weight. This is why we suggest that you get up, stretch, and make your body work like it should.
Neck and shoulders
A soft stretching exercise for the neck. This exercise will return the flexibility to the muscles and remove the fat near the 7th vertebra.
- Lie on your back and bend your knees.
- Fold a towel, as shown in the picture above, and place it on the back of the head.
- Pull the blanket up trying to stretch the neck. Keep the elbows to the sides to allow yourself to breathe freely.
- Take 3 deep breaths and repeat the exercise 3-4 times.
