It is Monday morning and you are slowly going through the motions, you take your shower, get dressed, grab some breakfast, *yawn* maybe get the kids ready for school (if you have kids of course)and start your day….STOP!
START the day out with a bang! Let’s do some Jumping Jacks. Jumping Jacks will speed up your heart rate and improve the circulation of blood throughout your body. Improved alertness is the resulting factor from doing Jumping Jacks in the morning. They are simple, quick yet effective!
Can you do 200? You just need a few minutes in the morning….
How to Do Jumping Jacks:
1-Begin by standing with your feet together and arms at your sides. Tighten your abdominal muscles to pull your pelvis forward and take the curve out of your lower back.
2-Bend your knees and jump, moving your feet apart until they are wider than your shoulders. At the same time, raise your arms over your head. You should be on the balls of your feet.
3-Keep your knees bent while you jump again, bringing your feet together and your arms back to your sides. At the end of the movement, your weight should be on your heels.
So what do you think? Do you have a few minutes to take steps to start your day and continue your journey towards a healthier you? Of course you do!
