Here is a 5-minute yoga routine you can do when you wake up, to loosen up your spine, hips and shoulders.
To supercharge the benefits, treat your morning yoga as meditation. Instead of allowing your mind to run through the events of the day, focus on your breath, notice how the movements feel in your body and try to systematically wake up every cell and sinew. When you notice a thought, let it go and bring your attention back to your body.
It's a bulletproof way to start your day.
