The Daily Check-In 5.7
Get flat abs.
Relish your roasted salmon.
Start defrosting that salmon now. Tonight, it’ll get simply roasted and topped with tomato chermoula, a Moroccan condiment flavored with cumin, coriander seeds, garlic, and herbs. Serve leftovers over greens for lunch tomorrow.
Self-acupressure: immunity boost
Missing your acupuncturist? There are certain points you can target yourself. To stimulate your immune system, find the Stomach 36 acupuncture point, says Deborah Stotzky, acupuncturist and owner of Holístico Wellness + Beauty in New York City. Here’s how: Take your middle and pointer fingers and, starting at the outside of your calves, trace up your shins until you reach a little “hole” right at the bottom of each knee cap.
Massage into that space for several seconds or more if you like, says Stotsky. Do it daily.
Warm up for conversation.
Poor posture can lower your mood, says Jaime Rauso, group fitness instructor and stretch therapist at Equinox Austin in Texas. To be in a more friendly headspace during Zoom meetings, do one or all of these stretches beforehand.
