Time: 6:00 am ~ 9:00
Suitable Exercises: running, walking, archery, throwing, sailing, surfing, boating and playing football.
Reason: Within this time, the body temperature is low, the joints and muscles stay sort of rigid. So, it is the best time to do some fitting exercises. Practicing these activities early in the morning will also warm up your digestive system. As the heart rate stays low in this time, you can easily engage in some workouts such as archery, throwing and so on.
Time: 3:00 pm ~ 6:00
Appropriate Exercise: aerobics, tennis, volleyball, weightlifting, and consumption of fat.
Reason: This is also a proper time for doing exercise. During this period, the body temperature remains the highest. It is the best time to increase muscle strength and flexibility. At 3:00 pm, the respiratory system stays relaxed which means you can inhale more oxygen that will increase lung capacity and help the heart work more efficiently.
Time: 6:00 pm ~ 8:00
Suitable Activities: swimming, gymnastics, sprinting, yoga, ballet, stretching exercises and the like.
Reason: During this time, the body temperature remains at the highest peak. Your body tends to be flexible after a day full of works.
Practicing yoga will create strength, awareness, and harmony both in body and mind. Yoga is a great way to stay healthy and relaxed. Yoga will also help your mental well-being. This will help your mind to remain stress-free.
Get up early in the morning and use a clean surface to do morning yoga practice.
Morning time is the best time since we have the shining sun that brings us light, cleans all night toxins and purifies the mind so that the body becomes full of vitality to meet the new day.
Duration: 15-30 minutes
(If you take too much time, your body will be tired so easily)
Under the morning sun, doing yoga can freshen up your mind.
It is a good time to squeeze the fat and stretch the muscles to making the body strong.
Take a clean mat. From kneeling, bring your chest down onto your thighs and your forehead to the floor. Extend your arms by your side with your hands next to your feet.
Take a slow, full breath in through your nose. As you exhale through the nose see if you can sink the buttocks back down toward the heels feeling the spine gently curving over the thighs.
Stay here for 5-10 breaths, or however long feels good for you.
From a standing position, widen your leg stance to about a leg-length. Turn the right foot out to the side, ensuring the heel is aligning with the center arch of the left foot. Take the arms parallel to the ground and reach out to the right side, keeping both legs straight with the thighs engaged. When you can’t reach any further, pivot the arms so they are in one line, moving in opposite directions. The chest remains open and the upper body lengthens. If it’s comfortable and you have the balance, gaze toward your top thumb.
5 breaths here and repeat on the other side.
Duration: 30-45 minutes
You’re full from lunch, you’re sore from sitting all day at your desk, and you’re starting to feel a coffee crash. This is the most opportune time of day to get your yoga on, even if only for a few minutes.
- Find some space in the room to lie on the floor on your stomach. Keep your feet hip-width apart, press them into the floor, and use your hands to push you upright until your belly button just comes off the floor. Look up if it doesn’t put a strain on your neck and draw your shoulders down your back. Stay here for 3-5 full breaths and lower down. Do a few sets.
- Turn your heels in, toes out, and sink down into a squat, ideally until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Root your heels down, keep your torso upright, and bring your arms out the side in any variation. Stay here for five full breaths and release. Repeat twice.
Duration: 20-30 minutes
You are all set to climb onto your bed at so, at this point you may not want to have excess heat for the body. But do some yoga poses to have a sound sleep.
Sit down on your heels with your knees together. Separate your feet and try to sit down between your heels. It may look like there isn’t much going on, but this posture can be extremely difficult for those of us with stiff or injured knees. If you can’t sit your hips all the way down to the floor, use your hands to take some of the weight, or find a block to sit on top of. Keep your torso upright and chin parallel to the floor. Stay here for five full breaths and repeat once.
Keep your feet together but spread your knees apart. Sit back onto your heels, stretch your arms forward, and let your forehead melt into the floor. Take a few twisting variations (walk your hands to one side and then the other) or bring your arms back to rest alongside your legs.
Just do whatever feels the most relaxing for you, as that’s what will prepare you for the deep, glorious sleep you very much deserve.
