- You’ll strengthen your leg and abdominal muscles as well as improve mobility and flexibility in your hips.
- Your blood circulation will improve. Elevating your legs like this increases the blood flow to your upper body, enriching it with oxygen.
- The 1-minute legs-up-the-wall exercise will prevent the development of varicose veins.
- This exercise will help you get rid of leg heaviness and fatigue that usually appear after an especially busy workday.
- For women who are menstruating, elevating your legs like this will help reduce the pain of menstrual cramps.
- You’ll see improvements in your digestion and gastrointestinal health. Again, this has to do with combatting fluid retention and getting things circulating in your body.
- You’ll feel more relaxed, both physically and emotionally. Putting your legs up the wall drastically improves breathing. It allows you to inhale more air, and, as a result, your breathing becomes calmer and more rhythmic.
- Do this exercise, and you’ll have no problems getting some sleep each night.
- You’ll feel a noticeable improvement in your mood. With all the physical and mental changes that come, you’re bound to just feel better overall.
- Please remember to consult your doctor first before trying this exercise, especially if you have back problems. It should also go without saying that one minute of elevating our legs per day doesn’t replace a full exercise regimen.
