Does your busy lifestyle already got you down again?

Is your stress level going up and up and up?

Do you not have a morning routine?

Guess what, you need one. This relaxation technique can bring you back into balance — in 6 minutes or less.

It’s six easy steps that you can do every day.

To start: Do each of these items for at least 1 minute.

  1. Sit upright and stretch as needed, then with your legs crossed, close your eyes. Don’t try to manage your thoughts; just let them float through. Breathe deeply and slowly, much like you would if meditating.

You’ll notice after doing this for a while that your days will flow better and you’ll be gaining insight into yourself and the world around you.
