MOBILITY – overhead extension with light band, 4min/side.

See video for instruction ( http://youtu.be/6ZPT5VLRJ8Y ), and see door frame alternative if you don’t have a band handy (http://youtu.be/zzYNj0lDo1w ).

Great mobilization. If I only have fifteen minutes to give my body some love, I’ll hit this for my shoulder joint, then couch stretch for my hips, and some yoga spinal twists to get the circulation flowing.

An essential mobility method!

MINDFULNESS – 5min box breathing with consideration of the mind is sky metaphor.

See video for discussion ( http://youtu.be/vcoKkYI9ctw ).

This is a very effective and powerful visualization technique to frame the inner workings of your mind. Stew on this for a while, then sit down and box breathe. Let those thoughts and clouds pass.

See playlist for box breathing resources ( http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLmO831B4IEJHkQFA_sjEP1Xt8mI8oyecw )

Like this post if you hit the overhead crank and resist! Did you use a band or a door frame? Lemme know how it went!

Comment below if you sat down and made some time for yourself today– box breathing, mobility, or otherwise!
