A morning gymnastics system called DO-IN exists in Tibet. It is gymnastics that is done without getting out of bed. It only takes 3 minutes. The secret of this method is described in the book “Secrets of Ancient Tibet” by an author who specializes in traditional Eastern medicine (the book is in Russian “Secrets of Ancient Tibet”, author: Sofia Sturchak).
According to the author, this method, which has changed the lives of many people, will help us as well. It takes 3 minutes to get active and ensure a good mood all day.
Complete DO-IN gymnastics includes 25 exercises. In our rhythm of life, 25 exercises sounds too long. Therefore, we recommend a mini-complex consisting of 5 basic exercises. These exercises will ensure a good all-day mood.
It is advisable to do these exercises after waking up, in bed. You can also do them at any time, when you need to.
All these exercises activate important points of our body that are responsible for daily vitality and energy. If desired, this method can be mastered by any person and personally convinced of its effectiveness and efficiency. It is important – do not be lazy! Because only 3 minutes, only 5 exercises and we will get fantastic results.
