It may seem counterintuitive to walk when you feel tired, but physical activity actually increases your energy level for up to two hours. Walk the stairs at work, stroll on your lunch break— however you can squeeze it in. You can start with just ten minutes and try to work up to 30 minutes or even an hour per day. This will make a huge difference in your energy level as well as your overall sense of well-being.
Day 7: Beat Stress with Deep Breathing
Improve physical and mental activity by practicing deep breathing from your abdomen to get rid of stress. You can even do this while you’re getting in your daily walk.
- Deep breathing exercise: Put your right hand over your stomach. Start by taking in a deep breath for 2 seconds. Then slowly breathe out for 4 seconds. Repeat for at least one minute until you feel rested.
