  7. 7. 3. Tuck your chin in and extend the crown of your head toward the ceiling, elongating your spine and improving your posture. 4. Press your feet into the floor and contract your sit muscles, from your hips down through your thighs. Hold for 30 seconds and release. 5. Extend your hands directly in front of your shoulders, perpendicular to the ground, and push your chest out while keeping your shoulders down and back. 6. “Take a deep breath” is a common adage for a reason. Begin by drawing your breath deeply into your belly. Visualize filling your lungs from bottom to top, then releasing your breath slowly and deliberately. Repeat ten times. Not only does breathing like this focus your mind, but it also triggers your body’s natural relaxation response. Try it, you’ll like it! 7. Go for a quick walk to refresh.
