Mood Moves: Clearing space to invoke calmness

Introducing Mood Moves, a Well+Good video series created by Manhattan fitness phenom Taryn Toomey, who explains how to use your body to change your mind.

For the final installment of our series, Taryn Toomey, founder of The Classs, shares a movement to help you calm down before going to bed. Think of it as a glass of comforting, warm (dairy-free) milk for the active girl, with a very active mind.

“You have moved stagnation out of the body, released frustration, tapped into the heart, vibrated and shaken, softened and forgiven. Now it’s time to plant a deep sense of calm in the fertile ground you have created,” says the fitness powerhouse.

While it’s a great pre-Zzzs move, Toomey notes that you can use it “any time of day when you need to settle yourself, invoke a sense of peace, or clear the space around you.” We’re thinking that might come in handy at work from time to time.

Ready to try it? Learn the move in the video above.

Catch up on our Mood Moves series with Taryn Toomey here. And if you need help falling asleep once you calm down, try some of these tips.
