5 Reasons to do Lunchtime Yoga

man-yoga

If you’re at all like me, you find yourself feeling slightly bloated and lethargic mid-work day. Whether it’s a gluten intolerance (and you just couldn’t avoid the morning office muffins), lactose intolerance, or just stress, you might feel bloated and tired after lunch and sitting at your desk all morning.

You know what can help? Squeezing in a yoga practice pre-lunch. If you’re fortunate enough to work close to home or to a yoga studio, or you need to set up a mat in your office or a nearby gym, the payoff will be well worth the effort.

Here are five benefits to a lunchtime yoga practice.

1. It increases mental clarity.
Any yogi knows yoga increases mental clarity. Lunchtime yoga is a great way to “reset” your mind and find renewed energy and focus for the afternoon tasks at hand.

2. It provides a great postural reset and relieves shoulders, neck and back aches.
There always seem to be those days when you feel drained from soreness and tension around the shoulders, lower back and neck. Lunchtime yoga is a great way to sneak in a refreshing stretch, giving you greater awareness to avoid building up more tension and aches later on in the day. Most of the time we’re not even aware of how much tension we are holding, which can be avoided by just taking a deep breath.

3. It gives you positive, social time during the day.
Grab a co-worker and do it together! Working out during the day is a much more positive interaction than mutual griping about a boss or having conversations about other co-workers. Emotional intelligence is the way forward J

4. It helps beat the sugar cravings.
I’m often reaching for the candy jar to beat the post-lunch energy slumps. Down Dog or a short inversion are my favorite poses for a quick way to get the blood flowing out of my stomach and back into my brain. Goodbye chocolate brownie dreams! After yoga, you’ll likely feel yourself craving a healthy smoothie to keep your energy up instead.

5. It lifts your mood.
Who likes a grump? Yoga is a great way to stay on a positive track. Overload from work or comments from a critical boss are much less likely to wear you down when you have the mental clarity and positive mood to see past it.

Also, it’s a great way to wipe the slate clean; choose a better way to deal with annoyances or setbacks that may have happened in the morning and be in charge of a BRIGHTER afternoon
