5 minutes Good Morning Stretch
A limber body and focused mind
Every morning I try to take a few minutes to awaken my body and mind and take some really deep and conscious breaths. For me, the most important is that I actually do this, that I make action of what I believe in in the long term. I want to feel that it’s effortless even though I might be on my way to somewhere. I believe in doing this a few minutes each day rather than doing one longer session once a week. This considering what I want to get out of it. A limber body, focused mind, two outstanding lungs and a lovely feeling every day!
I highly value this little moment. This moment only for me. The moment of conscious action. Conscious presence. Mindfulness. Here and now.

Strech for everybody!
- Start by finding a free space where you will have room to move around. It is enough to have a surface that is a little larger than a yoga mat.
- Use a yoga mat underneath you, it makes you get good grip on the floor. You can also use a regular rug or practice directly on the floor if you don’t have a yoga mat.
- Start doing your exercise and make your body and mind awake in a soft way. Is there any movement or position you don’t feel comfortable with, change it only to your needs.
- Remember breathing, breathing the key in this stretch.
- Try to really feel the stretch in your body in every movement.
- Let this excercise take som more time in the beginning to get to know your body and needs better.
- Remember! This moment is only for you.
Be kind to your self, be kind to others.
