Get fit at home with Amazon Echo’s Alexa
Alexa can help you with a range of exercises to improve your mental and physical well-being. From short workouts to breathing exercises and yoga, Alexa can guide you along the way.
Here are some great exercises to try out with Alexa:
7 Minute Workout
Less is more apparently, as the Mail Online reported “Researchers have found that short bursts of intense exercise produce similar results to traditional longer-duration workouts.”
Why not start the morning with an exercise routine by Alexa?
To give Amazon Alexa’s 7 minute workout a try simply say “Alexa, start 7 minute workout.” Then you’ll be taken through an array of exercises from jumping jacks and squats to push-ups and wall sits.
You will be conducted through the routine step by step and you notify Alexa when you want to move onto the next exercise. Remember you can always go into the Alexa App to look at the visuals if you want to check you’re doing it correctly.
1 Minute Mindfulness
Feeling stressed or want to escape life’s complexities for a moment? Alexa’s 1 minute mindfulness ability provides you with different meditations to choose from depending on your mood. Some of the sounds include waves, nature, forest and river. Submerge yourself in tranquillity whilst you listen to these relaxing sounds.
All you need to say is “Alexa, start 1 minute mindfulness.”
This should help your mind divert to serenity whilst you focus on your breathing.
Set some time aside during the day to do some quick breathing exercises. In everyday busy life we can be guilty of getting caught up and forget to focus on yourself for a short duration each day. Breathing exercises can really help with your mental prosperity.
Say “Alexa, start breathing exercise.”
Practice yoga in the comfort of your home with Alexa. Yoga focuses on breathing, balance, strength and flexibility to enhance both physical and mental wellbeing. The key components of yoga are postures and breathing.
