Afternoon slump? Stressed over your workload? Need ways to de-stress or refocus after juggling work or online learning assistance with your kids?
According to yoga therapist Judi Bar, it only takes a few minutes to reduce stress and refresh your mind by doing yoga exactly where you’re reading this now. In your chair, at your desk – wherever that may be.
And it’s really good for you. “Stress can make you sick,” she says. “Yoga can help you get through an over-scheduled or stressful day by lowering your blood pressure, increasing serotonin and decreasing cortisol. Yoga also helps you focus and release tension in your body.”
