Flexibility, joint health and balance — characteristics that become increasingly more significant as we age. Along the years, all these things affect our overall wellbeing and factor into how much movement we retain. So how can stretching daily change your body and overall health?
1. You will feel splendid and ready to go —even at 6 PM
If you are one of those people that feel completely done by mid-evening, a stretch break will strengthen and brighten you. Only a couple minutes of stretching can increase blood flow through your whole body.
2. You are more likely to feel less clumsy
Researches say that people who stretches for 30 minutes a day are more likely to balance longer than those who don't. That's because stretching helps with muscle coordination—meaning those who stretches regularly are less likely to trip and fall.
3. You will feel less sore even after a 8-hour working day sitting in front of a computer
Stretching can relief a stiff back as well as tight muscles and joints. So if you're a 9-5 worker that sits in front of a computer every day, being more flexible will help you not only stretch your muscles but revive the body, and battle off soreness more quickly.
4. If you are a sports enthusiast you are more likely to avoid injuries
It's no surprise that incorporating stretching into your warm-up helps your body get ready for exercise. But stretching after workout also helps with giving your body a kick off on recovery while also releasing stress and tension, and boosting the flexibility of your joints.
5. You will feel happier
Stretching can help manage tension both physically and mentally.By relieving muscle tension, stretching tricks you into feeling more loose and allows your muscles to let go of where you're carrying stress, helping you to relax faster.
6. You will sleep better
Getting in touch with your body by stretching helps to focus your attention on your breath and body and therefore helps you to fall asleep faster and improve the quality of your sleep.
I absolutely LOVED it!! It was something I looked forward to when I woke up in the morning. I felt relaxed, flexible, and strong.
