Use any sedentary time to add activity by squeezing your glutes and sucking in your tummy repetitively. I use this in the car on my commute, at my desk, on the couch and even in bed before sleep.
Try different rhythms like squeezing for a count of 3 then relaxing on the 4th count. Alternate your belly and your glutes. Try belly 2, 3, release, glutes 2, 3, release, squeeze glutes, 2, 3, release, belly, 2, 3, release.
Sometimes due to lack of Sleep or because of overwork Eyes tend to look swollen and puffy----mostly in the Summers.The best way to combat this is to soak two swabs of Cottonwool in a bowlful of cold Water to which a few drops of Rose Water have been added.Squeeze out the cold Water from these Cottonwool Swabs and place them over your eyes.This way you can cool,soothe and refresh your Eyes very effectively.This process should be repeated every 5 minutes for a period of 15 minutes in total.
This is a good way to relax and unwind and helps to release the tension in both Mind and Body as well.
For myself, getting to the gym, or getting ready for that morning walk, is the most difficult part of exercising. So to get motivated I just have to remind myself of how good i feel, and how energized and accomplished, even after only ONE workout! that's all it takes to start feeling results.
Even just one workout can release the hormones needed to "feel good"! it's totally worth it 306
