Did you know that stretching could be considered the most beneficial exercise for your body?
It truly is the simplest and cheapest athletic activity–requiring little floor space, no equipment or special clothes! You’re probably aware that stretching increases flexibility, but there are countless other benefits!
— improves balance, posture, and mobility
— reduces anxiety, stress, fatigue, and risk for injury
— reduces low-back pain and muscle soreness
— promotes relaxation and improves mental alertness
— and MANY MANY MORE!
— You should warm up your muscles before you stretch to avoid injury. Try jogging in place or doing a few jumping jacks.
— Never bounce. Slowly ease your body into the stretch and hold it for 20-30 seconds.
— Stretches should feel uncomfortable, but never painful. If you experience pain, stop the stretch and contact your doctor to address the underlying cause.
