These are 5 tips to help you start or end the day in a healthy way and feel as if you were immersed in a tailor made personal mini tropical holiday in your same home.

1. Deep Breathing Exercises for Intercostal Muscles & the Diaphragm Breathe and relax through Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa, Yoga instructor's tips

Deep Breathing Exercises for Intercostal Muscles & the Diaphragm are two very useful exercises suggested by Emerald’s instructors, to alleviate the stress of everyday life and feel mentally free as if you were on vacation.  

The first exercise is called Bellow’s Breath. It is a breathing exercise that not only is detoxifying but it is also very good for your diaphragm muscles. This exercise must be done in a seated position. Once seated and comfortable, the aim is to inhale naturally through your nose and when exhaling, you need to snap your muscles in. Repeat this sequence for 30 seconds and gradually increase the pace.

The second exercise is called Intercostal Stretching Breath. This time, you will not need to sit down. In standing position, stretch both of your arms over your head. Then, inhale deeply and exhale while stretching your arms to the right. This will stretch your left intercostal muscles. Then, inhale and exhale while returning to the center. Inhale again and exhale while stretching your arms to the left for your right intercostal muscles. Repeat two more times on each of the sides.

2. Morning boost beverage to feel the taste of a paradise escape

The second thing that you can do to improve morning energy is through an energy booster.

The first beverage we would like to suggest is warm lemon water, a very beneficial light drink that helps your body’s digestive system and keeps you hydrated at the same time.
