Whether you have two minutes before your next meeting or 15 minutes to bring energy and mobility back into your body, this stretch is a calming yet effective way to use that time. "The more you reach and stretch in all directions, the more you benefit here," writes Bartha.

"It's really a huge stress and tension reliever," says Bartha in the comment section. "Like a giant breath!"
