As women with stress we've got to blow off steam before we lash out at colleagues or loved ones -- here are seven ways to help you do just that
Do pigeon poseThis pose will help release tension in your hips -- an area where many of us hold stress, says Fowler. Hips are a big joint, so aim to hold this pose for one to three minutes on each side. Here's how to do it:
Place your palms and knees on the floor, so you're on "all fours." Slide your right knee up toward your left wrist, bringing your foot back toward your body a bit. Rest down onto your right hip and slide your left leg straight out behind you. Bend over your right leg and reach for the floor. Rest your head and arms on the floor -- if you're flexible enough to do so, if not just lean forward a bit. Repeat on the other leg.
