 WANT TO STRETCH YOUR BODY IN 3 EASY MINUTES?

Hello, Dyan here (The Health Coach Is In) to share with you my favorite 3-minute body stretch that you can do as soon as you wake up in the morning.

BUT FIRST, WHY AM I TALKING ABOUT A BODY STRETCH IN THE MORNING?

     We all know that waking up on the wrong side of the bed and getting a late start to our day, where we're rushed and racing out of the house with un-brushed teeth and glugging down our coffee in the car... sucks!

     Everyone wants to start their day on a good note, which means waking up in a good mood, calm and centered and energized for the day, which isn't always the case, right?

     So why not give your body that stretch it deserves first thing in the morning, instead of waiting ALL day long to get your stretch at the gym or later in the evening.

 SO WHAT ARE THE STEPS TO THIS 3 MINUTE ENERGY BOOSTING BODY STRETCH?

STEP 1: Set a 'happy alarm' 5 minutes earlier than usual

Your body responds to messages you give it, so give it a happy ring to wake up to! Download your favorite tunes or nature sounds and use that as your happy alarm sound. Set it for 5 minutes earlier than usual. Your body will thank you.

STEP 2: Start your body stretch as soon as you open your eyes

Often when we over-plan, to stretch our bodies, and take too long to pick out just the right exercise clothes or the right room to stretch in, by the time we are ready to start stretching we are demotivated, distracted or derailed.

So, carpe diem (seize the day) by starting your stretch even before you get out of bed!

While laying down in bed, simply stretch your legs out and reach your arms overhead and really stretch your body. Then sit up in bed and do the same, this time stretching your arms way up to the ceiling.

STEP 3: Finish your body stretch right next to your bed

Stand next to your bed, breathe deep inhales and exhales and stretch up to reach for the sky. You can clasp your fingers overhead to keep your hands together to increase the stretch.

HOW WILL THIS 3-MINUTE BODY STRETCH BOOST YOUR ENERGY?

     You know how sometimes on a chilly morning you need to crank up your car a little more than usual to get the gas circulating faster?

     The same is true for our bodies. All they really need to get going is a little kick-start for the day and a simple stretch as soon as you wake-up will do it.

     I bet you will feel different immediately and that energy boost will give you the energy to make time to boost MORE energy. It's a happy energy-boosting cycle.

     If you'd like to take this stretch a little further, then please check out JUST 18-DAYS TO MASTER THE 'FREEDOM' OF INTUITIVE EATING and take your body back to health, first thing in the morning. 

     Learn the skills to respect your body's communication signals of when and how much to eat, regardless of what's on your plate. Eating should feel good, before, during and after you eat.

     So I invite you to take a moment to peek at my program and see if this is the right approach for you. If it is, it will be the most pleasurable way, you most likely, will ever experience in losing weight.

With Love & Health
