A Week of Mindful Movements
Lifting Your Arms
Begin with your feet slightly apart, arms at your sides.
Breathing in, keep your elbows straight as you lift your arms in front of you until they're shoulder level, horizontal to the ground.
Breathing out, bring your arms down again to your sides.
Repeat the movement three more times.
