Anti Aging Morning Routine with Qi Gong



My Anti Aging Morning Routine

Looking for a way to energize and feel better?

Qi Gong is a wonderful exercise to help relax, center, ground, and rejuvenate - I find it much less strenuous to do than yoga or pilates and according to many sources a daily practice of Qi Gong provides amazing anti aging benefits to the body.

According to the Monterey Bay Holistic Alliance ( see their article)  Qi Gong can help loosen muscles , build bone density, reduce stress, balance emotions, improve circulation, improve posture, flexibility, balance, memory, and help with better digestion.



I found a variety of Youtube videos that I like to do for a morning routine.  I've posted three of the videos below that I found that I enjoy doing. I had posted other Qi Gong videos on a previous post.  There are a good amount of free videos available on Youtube and by many different teachers.

I read that the best way to relieve stress is to have a daily routine that you do automatically without having to think about it and make decisions.

I feel so good after doing just 10 minutes of Qi Gong- 
#2 Video is my favorite

Here are some of my favorites

This one below is a good simple wakeup routine that is good for circulation. 



#2  love this one for relaxation- I feel so peaceful and relaxed after just 15-20 minutes
She explains the reasoning behind everything and how it affects the body- Love it
She is also very easy to follow 


                                          


Here is a Qi Facial using Essential Oils -
 I love doing it and love using my essential oils 

                                          

The Happy Liver is a more advanced routine but well worth looking at- 

It seems to incorporate more yoga poses along with the Qi Gong

    1. Qi Gong is great- easy, relaxing, and rejuvenating. It gets your energy going and what could be more convenient than a free video from Youtube

  5. Hi Judee! I'm visiting from Healthy Motivated Life, via the Friday at the Fire Station Link-Up. Thanks for the tip, I'm going to do a little more research on Qi Gong to see if it's a good fit to add into my morning routine!
