Stokes swears by this endorphin-boosting move, which she performs while still in bed every morning: β€œI extend my arms over my head, then lengthen every part of my body completely, stretching my arms, legs and core as far as I can,” she says.

β€œThen I wrap my arms around my knees and pull them in to hug my chest.” Repeat for a total of three times, and add a mantra such as β€œI’m grateful for this body” or β€œToday will be a good day,” she suggests.
