Life hacks for tired, busy women!

Being exhausted seems to be the new norm for so many women who are trying to juggle a million things and be so much to the people in our lives.

One of the greatest hacks that I can share with you is what’s commonly known as “legs up the wall” yoga pose (Viparita Karani).  As far as recuperation goes, this posture does so much for women.. If time is of the essence, this is the number one thing a recommend for tired, busy women!

This is the ultimate R&R. Not only will it give you a sense of spaciousness, clarity and rest, it also does the following:

  1.  Helps bring your pelvic organs, (this includes your uterus and bladder) back into position
  2. Takes the load of the pelvic floor and helps with the realignment of pelvic muscles, ligaments and more (if you have pelvic floor issues check out our 7 Day Activation Program)
  3. Gives your lower back a break and helps to release compression
  4. It helps regulate blood pressure.
  5. Relieves tired legs and lymph collection in the feet.
  6. Stretches out the hamstrings, the front torso, and back of the neck.
  7. It helps improve posture.
  8. Calms the nervous system.
  9. Fosters the energy of feeling supported.
  10. Fosters the energy of being a valued and worthy contributor to society (one of the key energies held in the base chakra and the pelvic floor).

So what are you waiting for?

Note:  If you feel discomfort in your back, you can start by lying with you knees bent and lower legs up on the couch… or try my yoga video to help improve your posture 

The best way to make this happen is to choose a time that would work best, ideally a time that will break up your day.  Here are some examples;

  • Around 9.30 am after school drop-off
  • Late morning if you have little ones who have a morning nap
  • Before school pick-up (this is my favourite time)
  • After school or work, before the evening rush hour
  • Before bed

Choose a time and make it part of your daily routine!
