Let’s lighten your body! Building a body that can withstand stress
You may feel angry when you feel uncomfortable, but such stress can have a positive effect on your health and beauty, depending on how you handle it.
So, this time, I will introduce how to deal with stress and stretches that support the effect.
So, before I introduce you to stretching, here are some things to keep in mind when practicing.
- Don’t overdo it, stretch it out and work slowly within a comfortable range.
- When stretching, try to exhale slowly.
- Shorten the keep time in the direction where you feel sharp pain when you stretch it.
- Focus on your body so that you can focus on the stretched area.
What is the method of trunk stretching to lighten the body from the morning?
The morning after a sleepless day, everyone has a hard time waking up and tends to be stiff and tense. This stretch loosens the core such as the shoulder blades and hip joints of the trunk (torso), so the body loosens from the core.
Since the arm is also connected to the shoulder joint and collarbone, it is also effective in eliminating stiffness from the neck to the shoulder. By moving your arms more slowly around the trunk, the range of motion of the hip joints will expand and the groin area will be cleared, so waste products that tend to accumulate in the joints will flow and the body will become lighter.
Please try to take in plenty of fresh oxygen from the morning.
■ How to:
1. Put your palms and knees on the floor
Extend your left foot diagonally to the left and place your right toe diagonally to the right floor.

Look at your fingertips with your eyes extended, and extend your throat from around your chest. Let’s do the same on the other side.
Stretching to shed tiredness and waste products accumulated during the day
When you sweat, not only water but also nutrients in your body are discharged together, which makes you more tired. In addition, it is said that the urinary system such as the kidneys is particularly burdened during the hot and humid season, and swelling and coldness are likely to occur. It is important that these tiredness symptoms disappear on the same day and that you do not get tired.
In this stretch, the movement of entwining the legs causes blood flow in the lower body, and the movement of twisting improves the movement of internal organs and restores energy from the inside.

1. Lying on your back, put your right leg on your left leg
Put your hands under your head and place your right leg on your left leg.
2. Tilt both knees to the left
Tilt your knees to the left while exhaling. At this time, be careful not to lift your right elbow or shoulder too much. Look down around your chest and gently stretch your nape. Let’s repeat 10 breaths as it is.
3. Tilt both knees to the right
Tilt your knees to the right while exhaling. Let’s repeat 10 breaths as it is.
How to deal with stress well
“I want to spend a fulfilling time, I want to be healthy, I want to be beautiful” is a natural desire for human beings. However, when you feel stressed, you tend to feel that even this desire is “don’t care”.
What is stress in the first place? Feelings that spring up when something unpleasant happens? An invisible bad guy whose emotions affect the body?
Both are correct and incorrect.
From the perspective of the brain, anything that causes the activity of neurons (nerve cells in the brain) is stress, and basically the stress that brain cells receive is reflected in emotions. In other words, walking and getting angry at your boss are the same “stress” from your brain.
But whether it’s poisonous or medicinal depends on the actions you take during stress. Not only does that behavior change your feelings, but it also changes your brain activity. If you get frustrated without taking any action, it will be “harmful” such as poor physical condition or eating and diverging.
On the other hand, if you actively deal with it, such as relaxing the tension of your body with gentle movements such as stretching and yoga, and dissipating the negative energy accumulated by exercise that also serves as a change of mood such as jogging, you can escape from that state well. .. In addition, if you learn how to deal with it well, you will gain confidence and will not lose a little stress.
Please face your body with a positive feeling and lead a healthy life.
