Stress can not only cause emotional distress, but it can also affect you physically. I mean headaches, stomach problems, or pain in the neck and shoulders. When you create muscle tension, it seems like a barrier is created between your brain and your body, making your concentration impossible. Take a break from your work and do these five exercises to get rid of that tension.

Shoulder raises:

Take a breath as you bring your shoulders towards your ears for a count of three. Then drop your shoulders as you breathe out. Repeat five times.

Head roll:

Slowly swing your head from side to side towards your shoulders. Do it slowly and do not stay a long time on each side since we are not talking about a stretching exercise but a mobility exercise. Repeat five times on each side.

Open the chest:

Put your hands on your hips and while you take a deep breath, bring your scapulae (shoulders) together, opening your chest as far as you can.

Looking at the ground:

Bring your chin to your chest for a count of three slowly. Don’t arch your upper back. This exercise produces a stretch in the back of the neck. Continuing in a slow, controlled movement, bring your head back until you are looking at the ceiling. Repeat 3-5 times.

Self-massage:

Bring your right hand to your left shoulder and run your fingers along with the muscle. When you’re done, switch sides.

Have you been training for a long time but see that you are stagnant? Maybe the problem is with the break. When the body has rested properly, it will be more predisposed and prepared when you go to start your training session. And I do not mean to sleep the 8 hours that are recommended (I am also realistic and I know that I wish that was possible for many of us), but to have a quality rest, like the one offered in eve Sleep .
