When we are stressed or anxious our bodies tense up and blood flow to muscles is restricted. Take a big stretch, loosen up and let go of that stress! Stretching interrupts the defensive stress reaction and improves the blood flow - allowing the muscles to relax and increases circulation of blood to the brain, which will help lift the spirit. The more you stretch, the better you will feel. It's so simple!

What You'll Need

  • A little bit of space

What You'll Do

  • Feeling anxiety creeping up? Stretch your body. Stand tall and lift your hands way above your head and stretch.
  • Try and test different stretches to find the stretch which works in reducing your anxiety
