1. Move better

Tighten your whole body with these small but effective exercises. The day starts with a strengthening exercise, then at noon your condition is required, and in the evening it goes into the relaxation mode.

Exercise 1: Superwoman for a strong middle and balance

Step 1: Tighten your stomach. Extend your left arm parallel to the ground and your right leg away. Step 2: As you exhale, insert your left elbow and right knee joint under your abdomen until they touch, the spine will round. When inhaling, come back to the starting position. 10 repetitions, paging.

Exercise 2: Hopping for endurance

We know rope jumping from childhood. But would you have thought that hopping is a great endurance exercise that also improves coordination? Hop on at noon. The work-out brings neat condition. Alternative: Hopping is not fun or you have to do without it for health reasons? Then put in a 20-minute walking or jogging session.

Exercise 3: The caterpillar for a relaxed back

Step 1: Sit on the floor with your legs outstretched. Step 2: Lower your nose down to your knees and allow your back to become round. This exercise from Yin Yoga helps you to let go of everything. Do not try to force something. Gravity does the work for you. You can also put a big pillow on your legs and put your upper body on it. Keep the exercise for 3-5 minutes. Then slowly upright again. Extra tip: Many ask themselves in this exercise always back round or bend straight forward? Actually, the forward bend is carried out with a straight back. This increases the effect on the legs. In our exercise, the focus should be on the back.

2. Rethink

What is yours today? What gives you strength on your sluggish day? Choose the slogan that appeals to you most spontaneously. Express this principle aloud at least three times a day. Of course you can also recite it more often. Namely, whenever you need him.

  • I am strong and healthy.
  • Making small changes in my life is easy.
  • My body feeling gets better every day.

This is how it works:

Say the spells in front of a mirror and look each other in the eye. The sentences are a mental anchor that keeps reminding you of your intentions.

3. Eat right

These delicious dishes will provide you with everything you need on your sloth day. And best of all, thanks to the well-balanced nutrient mix, they are totally full and still do not consume too many calories. You will not even notice that you have just started your personal "24-hour diet".
