4 Easy Stretches to Improve Your Lockdown Experience

By ellephant

Covid-19 has robbed so much from us. Lives, time, happiness, the list can go on and on. In Malaysia, the 1st of August 2021 marked 500 days since we started this heart wrenching journey. 

Besides keeping ourselves and those around us safe, keeping physically, mentally and emotionally fit, is also crucial, amidst this never-ending lockdown. 


Based on that, here are 4 stretches you should do on the daily, in order to benefit your minds and bodies. Check them out. 

1. Bridge Pose


Physique: Stretches out chest, neck, spine, hips, back, butt, hamstrings

Physically: Improves blood circulation

Mentally & Emotionally: Helps with stress and mild depression

2. Spine Stretch


Physique: Stretches spine, shoulders, lower back, hamstrings

Physically: Stimulates organs (intestines, kidneys, liver, ovaries, uterus), helps relieve menstrual discomfort

Mentally & Emotionally: Induces relaxation, relieves stress, uplifts mood

3. Child's Pose


Physique: Elongates lower back, opens up hips

Physically: Helps with digestion

Mentally & Emotionally: Calms the mind

4. Seated Side Stretch
