Rev it UP

If you are anything like me, the sound of your alarm buzzing you awake in the morning is next to torture.

So, to make the AM a tad easier, here are a few tips on how to get past that morning ache and get REVED UP for your busy day ahead:

For A.M. Energy

Stand a few inches in front of your bedroom doorway and lift arms so that elbows are at shoulder height. Place palms on the edges of the door jamb, framing both sides of the doorway. Anchor hands as you lean forward and exhale. "Hold for a few breaths, allowing shoulder blades to move together and the chest to open," says Edward Vilga, a yoga instructor at Laughing Lotus in New York City and author of Yoga for Suits. Then, inhaling, return to starting position.
