Wellness Wednesday

Stress is all around us. That's why it is important to take time out and relax. A run is a great way to disconnect and feel free. We recommend one more step - stopping and breathing. You can call it meditation or you can just call it a relaxing few minutes. The point is to stop, close your eyes and take deep breaths.

We recommend taking 5 minutes in the morning or at lunch to stop and breath. Sit in a comfortable position (or lie down), close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Count your inhalations and your exhalations. So, on the inhale, count (1,2,3) as you inhale and then count (1,2,3) as you exhale. It's okay if your mind wanders, keep coming back to the breath.

Even if you can only do it for 1 minute today, take the time. Your body and mind will thank you. Happy Wednesday!
