Yoga is a great way to relieve stress through body stretching, sweating, and meditation. But if you don’t have time for a class, you can incorporate some simple neck stretches into your daily routine.
• Neck Stretch: Standing tall, use your right hand on the top of your head to guide your right ear towards your right shoulder. Apply light pressure until you feel a stretch in the left side of your neck. Hold this pose for 20-30 seconds, release, and then repeat on the left side. Do this a few times and you’ll feel the tension melt away!
• Neck Release: Standing tall, raise your chin towards the ceiling. Then tilt your head to the right until you feel a stretch on the left side of your neck. Breathe deeply for 20-30 seconds, then go back to the center with your chin to the ceiling. Repeat this stretch on the left side.
