Relieve stress with sun salutation

It only takes three minutes to brighten your mood and you don’t need to change into your sweat pants.

Even though the name means ‘honoring the sun’ and it is a familiar yoga stretch for those doing a full yoga workout, it can benefit the busiest person at any time of the day who can only spare a few minutes for some exercise.
