Got big New Year’s Eve plans? Before getting out of bed the morning after, try straight-leg ankle circles. They’ll help get your blood going again after a long night (or morning).

While lying on your back, straighten one leg up in the air. Hold the back of your thigh with your hands and feel a stretch in your hamstring muscles, in the back of your upper thigh.

After holding the stretch for 10 to 30 seconds, rotate your ankle so that your foot moves clockwise in the air. Do 10 circles, then 10 more counter-clockwise. Switch and repeat on the opposite leg.
