Bootique Says ‘Relax’
So you’ve been working hard at Bootique’s Personal Group Training and Zumba classes, running errands, gone to work, school, carted the kids around, and you have been dealing with daily stressors that come up. What are you doing to relax? How are you releasing the mental and physical fatigue? Let Bootique’s trainers share what they do to unwind to give you some fresh ideas!
RO – Bootique Personal Trainer
There are quite a few things I find relaxing and therapeutic… One thing I find particularity therapeutic, which others might really hate doing, is grocery shopping; farmers market strolls are ideal. I don’t love being in huge crowds, so I know the exact days/times I should be making my relaxing grocery store and farmers markets visits. I also love sitting out at a park, coffee shop, or living room couch and picking up a book, and sometimes I’ll throw some wine to add to the therapy; wine and relaxing really go hand in hand I think.
SABRINA – Bootique Personal Trainer
When I need a moment to unwind or even recharge. The method best for me is to eat a snack in silence. The nice thing about this is I can do it pretty much anywhere and it always helps clear my head.
JESSICA – Bootique Personal Trainer
When I need to relax, especially before bed, my favorite thing to do is Legs Up the Wall Pose (Viparita Karani).
- Relieves tired or cramped legs and feet
- Gently stretches the back legs, front torso, and the back of the neck
- Relieves mild backache
- Calms the mind
JAYLIN – Bootique Owner/Trainer
I love going to my happy place to relax. Sometimes this is just a place in my mind, but lately – it’s a physical place. My deck is my happy place. It’s so serene to sit outside, staring at the hill, and watch the hawks fly overhead and the morning doves singing ‘who’. This place brings me such peace.
Try all or just some of these strategies to help unwind and relax after a stressful day or week. Enjoy!
