Stretch for a minimum of 10 minutes a day!
I know you might think this sounds simple, but with our busy lives, it can be hard to stop what we are doing and take the time to focus on ourselves. So put the phone down, stop working, and stretch! The new year is just around the corner and with new years always comes new health goals, so let's use this month to prepare our bodies for what's around the corner!
I recommend stretching a few minutes every morning right when you wake up. But go slowly in the morning as your muscles will be cold. Then stretch again later in the afternoon, after your workout, or after a long day of sitting in front of a computer. No matter what your day looks like, stop and take some time to stretch!
Below are my top 5 favorite stretches. These stretches stretch your entire body. I have found that they have helped elevate back pain, shoulder soreness, and even reduce headaches.
