Have you ever had one of those days where it seems like you can’t get anything done? We crave accomplishing things and being productive — and when we’re procrastinating or cramming our schedules full, we usually get hyper critical and down on ourselves.

This energizing morning yoga routine is the antidote to inaction.

Let the poses give you a sense of accomplishment — not about how you looked doing them, but simply because you did them. You took the time for yourself to open your body, clear your mind and become more attentive, so that today you can mindfully tackle your to-do list.

If you’re looking for a fresh start to prime yourself for productivity, unroll your mat and press play. In less than 10 minutes, you’ll get the physiological boost you need to take on the day.

Time: 10 minutes
Experience Level: All, with modifications for balancing posture
