For the last day of March Slice of Life with https://twowritingteachers.org (can’t believe how fast the month went!), I decided to share a way for you all to have self-care and hopefully de-stress for a bit during these strange times.
I have chronic neck and shoulder pain and really love doing Yoga or Pilates to help me stretch and try to loosen up the super tight muscles. While staying with my parents, my mom mentioned that she would love to try some Yoga so I set up one of my favorite online instructors (Yoga with Adrienne).
Yesterday, after the almost 10 hour day of driving and a 4 hour drive the day before, my shoulders and neck were stiff from being in the same position for too long. I know Adrienne’s channel has some great exercises solely for neck and shoulders, so I looked one up. I think it is important to try to keep calm with deep breaths and get rid of some stress/anxiety by stretching out the parts of the body where most people hold those negative tensions.
I hope you will get some relaxation from this video below and possibly bring it into your daily practice, like I plan to do. We all need some self-love for a happy and healthy mind and body right about now!
