Relax, Rest and Stretch

Sunday is my day to relax and do what feels right.  It’s a day to sleep in, to start the day with a great cup of coffee while catching up on my favorite blog spots, and to let my muscles recover from the weekly workout routine.

It’s funny, though, that on Sundays my body is ready to wake before the sun rises.  It’s hard to slow things down when your energy is ramped up, so I tell myself to relax and enjoy a slower pace – maybe attend a yoga class or just do some gentle stretching in my PJ’s.

On your next ‘relax day’ if you need a little movement, try these stretches:

Side Bend

Back Scratch

Cobra stretch

Lying Quad Stretch

Forearm Flexor Stretch on Floor

Deep Hip Stretch

Front Hip Stretch

Achilles Stretch



Now that you are relaxed and your muscles are loose, try our recipe of the week to soothe  your coffee addiction.

Recipe of the Week: Coffee with Cinnamon & Coconut Oil
