Take it easy.
At Carbon Health we recognize the importance of self-care and the overwhelming impact that it can have on all of the different aspects of life. Taking a moment to relax can help lower your heart rate, improve your sleep quality, and decrease the effects of stress on your body and mind.
Not sure where to begin? How about starting by taking a moment for self-care this August 15 in honor of National Relaxation Day?
Here are some ways to relax, decompress, and let go!
Carbon Health’s Virtual Mental Health provider and clinical psychologist, Jeff Liebert, will walk you through relaxation and meditation techniques you can incorporate into your daily life with the videos below.
We recommend starting with video one and building up your daily meditation practice. Even just 5 minutes a day can make a big difference! Remind yourself that it’s not a race; there’s no finish line and there’s no real wrong way to do it. After you’ve tried these, you might want to search further and find which technique works for you.
We’ve teamed up with Carbon Health Virtual Provider, Xochitl Renteln, PA-C, and Satinder Suprai, a District Practice Manager at Carbon Health and yoga enthusiast, for some easy-to-follow stretching videos.
You can do these five stretches from Xochitl, safely from your home right now in under two minutes! Follow along with this video and start to feel some of the stress melt away.
These poses were curated for people working from home and hunching over a computer for hours, which can lead to strain on your spine and negatively affect your posture. Give Satinder’s moves a try every day to add flexibility for a happy, healthy spine. They’re easy to do and you can even do them while you’re binge-watching your new favorite show!
