Need a mid-afternoon pick-me-up? Try this stretch

Trouble getting out of bed this morning? Desperate for a second wind in the afternoon? This stretch will promote blood flow – and perk you right up

Sit up straight in your bed or chair. Swoop your arms sideways up toward the ceiling while simultaneously looking up at your hands.

Really reach your finger tips up and try to straighten your elbows. Repeat 10 times.
