It’s the Most Stressful Time of the Year
The song doesn’t go exactly like that, but we all know it’s true – traveling, shopping, decorating and baking can make the holidays the most stressful time of the year.
That’s why this newsletter is packed with treatments, tips and gifts to help you relieve the stress and enjoy the holiday season.
Exercise of the Month: Tree Pose
Vrksasana, or tree pose, has many benefits. It stretches your inner thighs, groin and shoulders and strengthens your thighs, calves, core, foot muscles and posture. It also helps you develop good balance and calms your mind.
Starting with a standing mountain pose, bend your right knee and shift your weight onto your left leg. Turn your right knee outward to the right and rest your right heel against your left leg.
Pick a place on the ground and stare at that point. Slide your right foot up your left leg as high as you can and still keep your balance. Bring your palms together in a prayer position in front of your chest. If you need to, put a hand on wall for support.
Beginners can try to hold the pose for 30 seconds and the more advanced can try to hold the pose for two minutes.
