Stretching is essential to living an overall healthy life. It has so many benefits and can be such an easy, low-impact activity. Some benefits of stretching are:

  • Keeping muscles flexible and strong
  • Can relieve pain
  • Increases range of motion
  • Decreases stress
  • Boosts Energy
  • Helps you burn calories at a faster rate
  • Improves posture
  • Stretching before bed helps your body rejuvenate while sleeping
  • Can help you avoid muscle spasms

There are many other benefits associated with stretching, but these are some of the top reasons why I recommend stretching. I stretch before bed, when I wake up, and frequently throughout the day. If you work a desk job like me, it is essential that you take breaks to walk around and stretch during the day.
