Reenergizing your mind and body
Releasing tension in your body through breathing
When you start to feel listless in the afternoon or early evening, forgo the cup of coffee or the sugar-filled snack and do the body shaping, mentally awakening exercises in this chapter instead. The Energy Workout takes 20 to 30 minutes and can be a mini-break that makes a positive difference in how you feel because the exercises take only a few minutes of your day. They benefit your circulation and nervous system, allow you to let go of your anxieties, and help you de-stress. The deep breathing brings calm and quiet to help you deal with stress, which gives you more energy and sharpens your senses. After you do this energy-boosting workout a few times, you’ll feel more fit and energized, and your spiritual batteries will be recharged. You’ll discover a keener awareness of the world around you. You’ll feel refreshed and renewed.
