Without further ado, here is part two!
4. The Cobra
Okay, now we are getting into the stretches named after dangerous animals and reptiles. The Cobra is not for the weak-minded.
Just kidding. This is easy, you got this!
- Roll over so you are laying on your stomach.
- Extend your arms outward, like you are reaching for something.
- Slowly walk your hands toward your chest area. Your torso should being lifting up off of the ground (or your bed). Keep a slight bend in your elbows.
- You should feel a good stretch in your back, neck, and chest.
- Hold the stretch for 30 seconds before slowly returning to lay-down position.
5. Sitting Side Stretch
Still stiff? Great, because this next one is going to bend your body which is going to open up your torso.
This is another simple stretch that you can do sitting down on your bed or your floor.
- Sit down with your legs crossed.
- Raise your right arm up and over your head, bending your other arm so that it touches the floor.
- Don’t lift your bottom off of the floor — you should feel the stretch in your upper body.
- Hold for up to 20 seconds and then repeat with the other side.
6. The Butterfly
Another stretch named after one of nature’s deadly predators — the butterfly.
This stretch is going to hit the hips and lower back and is a great way to conclude your morning stretch routine.
- Sit down on your bottom with your knees bent
- Try to touch your feet together
- Fold forward as much as you comfortably can, with your hands resting on your ankles or out in front of you
- Hold this position for 30 seconds
Energize your morning routine with bud and stretches
Starting your morning with a cerebral buzz and uplifting euphoria of weed can be a great way to start your day. But adding stretches afterward will make your morning high even better.
It will boost your concentration, increase blood flow, and build physical and mental energy that you will use for the rest of your day.
Don’t forget to breathe normally during each of these exercises, and complete them slowly.
Do these stretches every day and you will lengthen your muscles, build flexibility, and strengthen your joints.
Add in a healthy breakfast, and you will have all of the tools you need for starting your high-ly productive day!
