Relax with Olson and Baker…
Happy Relaxation Day! Only just reading this? Relax, you work hard, you deserve a break. Relaxation Day is all about winding down and just taking it easy. If you’re lucky enough to have the day off work, put your feet up and take a look through our latest collections. At work? Don’t worry follow this simple guide to unwind:
1. Inhale and exhale evenly and slowly for five counts each. Feel free to repeat these deep inhalations and exhalations as many times as you’d like, until you feel that your mind is ‘quieter.’ With each inhalation, imagine vital energy (Prana) coming into your body and filling it with light; as you exhale, imagine all your negative energy and sluggishness (Tamas) come out and dissolve. Observe how your body becomes lighter with each exhalation.
2. Inhale slowly, lifting both arms over your head and hold your left wrist with your right hand. As you exhale, bend your whole upper body to the right. Hold the pose there for three breaths. Make sure your spine and your head are straight, not bending down. Then inhale slowly and come back up to vertical position. Now change wrists, exhale, and bend to the left. Again, keep the pose there for three breaths. Inhale back up to a tall spine. Exhale, and release your arms to rest on your thighs.
