I know that Friday somehow seems so far away…*SIGH*… so I’ve put together a few suggestions on how you can relax and de-stress after a long, hectic day.
Find Your Namaste
Yoga can do wonders for your posture, and can help to relieve the back pain you have from sitting at a desk all day. It also forces you to move slowly and be still for periods of time, helping to clear your mind and keep you focused.
Get Some Fresh Air
When you feel stressed, go for a brisk walk or jog outdoors. This activity provides a double boost: endorphins from your workout boost your mood, and natural sunlight has been shown to elevate your mood.
Jump Into Bed
What better way to relieve stress than with a little between-the-sheets boogie? And WomansDay.com states that, based on the body weight of a 150 pound woman, 30 minutes of sex burns 144 calories! Plus, with all that yoga you’ve been doing (per suggestion #1 above), your increased flexibility will only add enjoyment to your after hours acrobatics.
