The Best At-Home Breathing and Stretches To Do In Quarantine (As Seen On The Today Show Online) 

While you’re social distancing you may find yourself feeling very anxious or even struggling to fall asleep. As someone who has done yoga for over 20 years and is a certified yoga instructor, it’s important to know doing stretches and breathing can help with this! Practicing yoga can even put you in more overall relaxed state.

This yoga and breathing sequence I designed is perfect to help reduce your anxiety. It focuses on taking deep breaths that will help to calm you while also putting you in a state of reduced stress. It’s also only about 5 minutes, so it’s perfect to squeeze into your new daily routine or even before a conference call! 

I shared some of my favorite yoga breathing exercises with The Today Show Online. These exercises are the yoga sequences I recommend for my private weight loss clients in order to help reduce their anxiety.

Using A Broom For A Full-Body At-Home Workout (As Seen On The Today Show) 

While you may feel that using a broom gives you a workout, there are other ways to use a broom to give your body a great workout. I created a workout that turns this common household essential into the ultimate tool to give yourself a full-body workout!

If you don’t have a broom, other similar household items will work perfectly fine for this workout. A mop or even a Swifter Mop will work the same way. If you’re going to use a Swifter, you may way to take out the part with the liquid in it – if it leaks it may make a mess on your floor. 

I love this workout I created that uses a broom for a full-body workout because it helps to challenge the core as well as encourages you to use proper form. Not only will you be getting a full-body workout, you’ll also be helping to improve your posture. With the transition to working from home, finding a way to stretch and encourage good posture is essential!

The Best Ways To Use Your Wall To Tone Your Arms For An At-Home Workout (As Seen On Today Show Online) 

With many states and cities considering lifting their stay at home orders, many women are starting to seek out simple workouts they can do to in order to tone their arms in time for summer. While we are unsure when stay at home orders will be lifted, these simple arm workouts can help you tone your arms from the safety of your home!

There are a variety of ways to tone your arms from home, some of which being using soup cans or bottles of water as weights. As long as an item is within 3 – 8 pounds, it can be used as a great weight. If you don’t want to go to the trouble of finding items to do that with, however, there is another option! 

I’ve been recommending my private weight loss clients approach arm workouts a little differently lately… I’m having them use a wall for their arm workouts! This has many benefits, one of which being how accessible walls are! There are a variety of exercises you can do on walls to help tone your arms, some exercises are more suitable for beginners and some are slightly more elevated and can help you step up your arm workouts. For the full list of arm workouts I shared with The Today Show, click here. You can also find this workout on MSN here. It is also available to view on Yahoo here and on Xumo here.

How To Avoid The Working From Home Hunch (As Seen In The Daily Mail) 

If you’re like many women, you may find yourself working from home because of the Coronavirus. Working remotely comes with a series of challenges, not including having to worry about your posture! Luckily, there are more than a few ways to help avoid the working from home hunch.

One of the main ways I’ve been advising my private weight loss clients to avoid the working from home hunch is to change the way that they’re sitting! There are certain positions that make you much more likely to sit with improper posture. While it’s very easy to sit with bad posture, it’s important to sit in positions that you are more likely to use proper posture in. 

Another way to avoid the working from home hunch is to do a series of stretches that promote better posture. Stretching is a great way to get your blood flowing and can even help your body recognize what proper posture feels like. In order to help combat bad posture, I recommend stretching at least once an hour while working remotely. You’ll be surprised how much better your back, neck, and shoulders feel!

Maintaining Mental Health During Quarantine with Gina DeVee (As Seen On IGTV) 

Taking the time to put yourself first and be the best version of yourself is much more easily said than done. Many women may feel like they are selfish for taking time for themselves, which is far from the truth. Gina DeVee, a phenomenal psychotherapist and women’s empowerment coach, joined me to talk about all things self care and empowerment. 

Gina recently published her book ‘The Audacity to Be A Queen’ which is what we focused this chat on IGTV about. This book is fantastic and I can’t recommend it enough! It explores several archetypes that women may represent and motivates them to be the ultimate archetype – the queen. Click here to purchase her book! (You’ll love it!) 

During this time of social distancing and uncertainty, many women are left feeling drained. One of the best pieces of advice Gina gave on this video was to take this time to reevaluate where you are in your life. You have such a unique opportunity to take a step back and look at everything from your mental health to your friendships that hasn’t been there before – so make sure to make the best of this time and discover new ways to put yourself first!

The Best Full Body Outdoor Workout In The Midwest (As Seen In Midwestern Living)

Rope courses may not typically be seen as the workout that they are, but mainly for the fun activities you can do on them. I always tell my private weight loss clients that activities like these are the perfect workout because you have so much fun doing them that you don’t even know how much of a workout you’re getting! 

Completing a rope course challenges you mentally and physically. Your core has to remain engaged in order to offer you stability and your mind has to be engaged to help you overcome obstacles! For more information about the workout that a rope course can give you, check out the May / June issue of Midwest Living.

A Quick At-Home 10-Minute Arm and Posture Workout (As Seen On IGTV) 

One thing I’ve been making sure to do during this period of social distancing is to squeeze in a workout after lunch! Doing this is a fantastic way to get your blood flowing as well as work on your posture. 

 

This workout is brought to you by Boiron’s Arnicare Gel. This topical gel can be applied at the first sign of pain or bruising to help fade bruising and alleviate pain. Another major selling point for this gel is that it’s fragrance free! I personally have been using this product for over 20 years to help with various aches and pains. I love it so much that I have a few spread around my apartment to have on hand! You can even use the code ‘STEPITUP’ for 20% off your order on their website. 

When it comes to working out, I always recommend having a set of dumbbells on hand for your home gym. But if you don’t have any gym equipment, you can substitute them for household items. I always recommend my private weight loss clients use items that range from 3 to 4 pounds as a substitute for dumbbells. You can use items such as milk, orange juice, or even textbooks!

To check out even more at-home workouts head over to my IGTV.

How To Use Your Headboard For Stretching In Bed (As Seen On Today Show Online) 

Let’s face it… tech neck is real. Looking down at your phone or laptop while remotely working due to the Coronavirus may seem like it isn’t doing you any harm, but it may be causing you tension in your upper back, shoulders, and neck. Relieving this tension can prevent pain in the future while also feeling great!

Using your headboard for stretching may seem a little out there, but I always recommend my private weight loss clients start their day by stretching in bed. Doing stretches in bed not only feels cozy and amazing, but can also motivate you to be healthier that day! If you don’t want to do these stretches in bed you can always do them against a wall. 

One reason I highly recommend doing neck stretches is to help your muscles feel what proper posture is like. This muscle memory makes you a little more aware of your posture throughout the day and can even motivate you to have better posture overall!

Stretches To Combat Bad Posture From Working Remotely (As Seen On Fox 32 Chicago)

We all know exercise is an important part of your day – but were you aware it could actually help prevent you from getting COVID-19? While exercise itself doesn’t prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, it does help to strengthen your immune system which can help fight off infection. 

Working remotely from home can easily make you forget about the importance of good posture while you’re working. It’s easy to fall into the habit of working from your couch or your bed even though we know this isn’t great for our bodies. We may also find ourselves sitting down for much longer periods of time! Without the push to physically go to work you may find yourself in the same place for most of the day. 

One great way to help you focus on yourself and your wellbeing is to periodically do some stretches. Stretching can help you open up your body while also relieving some of the tension you may have in your back, neck, and shoulders. I shared some of the best stretches to help combat poor work posture with Fox 32 Chicago. For the full segment, click here.

The Best 5-Minute Stretches to Increase Blood Flow (As Seen in NBC News Better)

Many women stretch before working out, but they don’t think about stretching when they wake up in the morning or before sitting for long periods. Stretching doesn’t just warm up the body and help to increase blood flow – it can also give you a boost of energy!

Taking the time to stretch in your everyday life is essential. I encourage my private weight loss clients to do yoga-based stretching to help calm them down while also increasing blood flow. Doing this means they can cross two things off of their to-do list at once! When designing a stretch routine I made sure to create a sequence that could be done quickly and easily, in this case, the stretches can be done in under 5-minutes. These stretches focus on working your larger muscle groups that are essential for day to day life. Another aspect of these stretches is that they can be done anywhere. Even if you are traveling for work or are doing them from your living room. These exercises require no equipment aside from the suggested yoga mat. If you are about to do a workout, make sure you are doing the proper dynamic stretches that help to get your muscles prepared to move.

For the full list of stretches that I shared with NBC News Better that can increase blood flow, click here.
