If you eat too much, drink too much and sit about too much today – be easy on yourself! It’s allowed at Christmas!
And to balance things out, try one of the below for a stretch out – I promise you’ll feel much better for it!
Hold onto a table edge so your back is flat and legs vertical, stretch back through the shoulders and spine to the tailbone and push down through the feet into the floor.
Take a walk in the fresh air (hopefully between the rain)
Downward facing dog – when your last meal has long-gone!
Stand upright and slowly come onto toes and down again – in slow motion!
If something more sedentary is required, lie comfortably on your back with legs up the wall and relax! Recovery time for your hard-working legs – vital after all that slaving away at the stove!!
But above all – enjoy the holiday time with family and friends – it enhances life and lifts the spirit!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
