Exercise "Energizer"

Put your arms crossed on the table in front of you. Press chin to chest. Feel the stretching of the back muscles and the relaxation of the shoulder girdle. With a deep breath, throw your head back, bend your back and open your chest. Then, as you exhale, relax your back again and lower your chin to your chest.

As a result of these actions, the muscles of the neck and shoulder girdle relax, the level of oxygen in the blood rises, the vestibular apparatus becomes more active, and the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system increases.

If you perform it for 5-10 minutes, then the feeling of fatigue decreases, or even completely disappears, the head starts to work noticeably, and the concentration of attention increases.

Exercises relieve mental fatigue, help focus on remembering new information, and even improve coordination. In addition, they promote relaxation, relieve nervous tension (and are very useful, by the way, to hyperactive, excitable people, both adults and children).
Perform each exercise with each hand for 20-30 seconds.

With the index and middle fingers of one hand, massage the points above the upper lip (middle of the nasolabial fold) and in the middle under the lower lip. The palm of the other hand currently lies on the navel.
