The Silver Linings Group is a small, close-knit team that is hugely dedicated to making a difference for your brand. With a focus on strategic digital marketing, we help our clients reach potential customers through relationship building, providing value, and being authentic to who they are.
All day, every day, we give so much. We give our time, attention, energy, resources, our physical bodies, our empathy and compassion… the list goes on. In a world that demands our attention 24/7 through the endless stream of notifications, it’s easy to get caught up in the motions.
Before you know it, you’re on overdrive, and turning OFF becomes a chore in itself. Taking a moment to rest and recharge seems like a far off dream when our brains are moving a million miles a minute.
So, what do we do?
YOGA to the rescue. Use these five poses to calm the nervous system, slow your heart rate, and quiet the anxious thoughts in your mind. Use these poses as a midday break, or a way to wind down before you head to bed. Even if it feels like you don’t have five minutes… we promise, you do!
Lying on the floor or your bed, bring your hips up against the wall, and lift your legs straight up. Stay and breathe deeply for a minute, or as long as if comfortable.
All of these yoga poses lengthen points in the body that tense up during the day — our hamstrings, hips, low back and chest. They also allow the internal organs to rest, which signals to the brain that it’s okay for the body to rest and relax.
In a time where we are giving so much to other people and things outside of ourselves, it’s so important to balance it out by giving a little to ourselves.
