Invigorate your body

The Sun Salutation is a morning yoga practice to get the blood flowing and stretch all the major muscles, awakening the whole body. Yoga teacher Amanda Fell (amandafellyoga.com) explains how.

1. Stand tall with feet together and palms touching each other in front of the chest.

2. Inhale, raise the arms and gently bend backwards, stretching the arms above the head.

3. Exhale and slowly bend forwards so your head meets your knees and your hands reach your feet (or as far as they can go).

4. Inhaling deeply, take a long backwards step with the right leg. Keep your hands and feet firmly on the ground, with the left foot positioned between the hands. Look up to the sky.

5. While exhaling, take the left foot to meet the right one. Keeping your arms straight, raise the hips and position the head in between the arms.

6. Hold your breath and lower the entire body to the floor until your feet, knees, hands, chest and forehead touch the ground.

7. Inhale, and lift the torso to bend it backwards, and look towards the sky.

8. Exhale and push the hips towards the ceiling, keeping the arms straight.

9. Inhale and step the right leg between your hands.

10. Exhale and bring your left leg to join the right. Repeat step 3.

11. Inhale and repeat step 2.

12. Exhale and return to the starting position. Repeat the sequence eight times, alternating between legs.


Kick-start your day

Smoothies are a quick, easy way to create a breakfast-to-go that contains the perfect balance of protein, healthy fats and micronutrients, alongside the fruit fibre that juicing removes.

Whizz to a smooth consistency, adding a little water if you prefer a thinner texture. Pour into a tall glass and top with a few goji berries.


Elevate your motivation

Music has been shown to elicit specific psychological responses, depending upon the type of song played. This means that the right playlist can retune your mindset entirely.

Improve your motivation or positive attitude by listening to music that evinces a positive emotional response in you. Try to schedule a time every day during which you play a selection of songs, channelling your focus on the music rather than any external stimuli. Notice if there are certain tunes that make you feel happy or more positive or focused. Take note of these, add them to a playlist on your computer or phone, then play them regularly to improve your mood and

    Waste of time. Sorry, but this book is an offense for every man or woman having a brain. Quite simple common sense really brings more than this book full of boring commonplaces.
