When you’re really feeling the pain of heartbreak, we think this is the perfect body+soul cocktail. All you need is the internet, a mat and a quiet area to practice. Sweatpants optional.
30 min Yoga for Relaxation
The chemicals we release during exercise make us feel better, but sometimes it’s hard to get moving when you’re in a lot of pain. If you’re at rock bottom and there’s no way you’re going to get out, start with this slow and gentle routine from Yoga with Adrienne. She is our favorite YouTube Yogi, and this one is especially meant for people feeling blue.
20 min Guided Meditation to Mend a Broken Heart
When you’re done with yoga, move into a seated position either on your mat or in a chair and begin this meditation with Brett Larkin, a yogi and tech CEO based in the Bay Area. If you’ve never meditated, this is a great beginner’s meditation – she quietly focuses on breathing and compassion to calm anxiety and make you feel less alone in your experience of heartbreak.
10 min Take Inventory + Hydrate
When you’re done, notice how you feel, both physically and mentally. Do you feel better? Make yourself a cup of herbal tea or get a glass of water, and remember this feeling next time you need motivation to get moving.
