Just got off a tough Zoom call, or struggling with home schooling?
SHAKE IT OFF!
When you’ve had a stressful experience, or you’re feeling stressed, stand up and shake it off!
Start at your feet and work your way up to your head. Hopefully it will turn into a fun experience and get you laughing too!
Any vigorous movement is a great way to burn up the stress hormones that are released when we feel stressed.
- Dance to your favourite song
- Jog on the spot, pumping your arms
- Run around the garden
- Wave your arms and legs as if you’re shaking off a swarm of bees
And remember that we’re not designed to sit all day, which leads us to tip # 2
