Imagine if you could do something in only two minutes, right in your chair that could help you relax, feel better and be more productive!

Maybe it’s 9 a.m. and you’re feeling stiff and tired. Or it’s 3 p.m. and you’re feeling a bit sluggish.

Judi Bar, a certified yoga therapist at Cleveland Clinic, demonstrates two minutes of simple stretches you can do right at your desk at work or sitting at home.

Combined with deep breathing, these movements can really help loosen your muscles and clear your mind. Over time, a habit of doing these stretches and breathing more deeply during the day has even more benefits, including managing stress and lowering blood pressure.

    I’m a former smoker and I can tell you from actual knowledge that vaping has helped me quit cigarettes big time. I’ve tried everything over the years and nothing has come close to vaping in effectiveness. Yes, there should be some regs and controls, but the fact that vaping WILL help you quit tobacco cannot just be dismissed. Let’s also not dismiss the other dirty little secret being glossed over here. That is the loss of tax revenue from people buying less tobacco products.
