Stretching has many benefits and is an essential part of maintaing good health. Most people in society do not take the time to stretch their body. They say that they don’t have time or are too busy, but those are alibis and lazy excuses to justify their current state. All it takes is 10-20 minutes a day of some simple stretching routines and you can drastically increase your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
Here are some major benefits that stretching has :
Daily stretching exercises can alleviate pain within your joints and muscle tissue. If you are not suffering then stretching can prevent you from getting pain and stiffness.
Stretching daily can increases energy levels because it opens energy blockages and allows energy to flow more freely through the body. Physical pain and stiffness is a manifestation of energy blockages obstructions in your body.
By stretching your body on a daily basis – you will gradually notice your flexibility improving. This is a wonderful feeling because your body is the vehicle that you are driving while on your stay here on earth. Keep it flexible and you will feel so much better.
Doing Stretching exercises improves blood circulation within your body and increases lymphatic flow. The venous system and the lymphatic system are two very important systems in the human body. The blood is the delivery system of nutrients to your cells and your lymphatic system acts as your bodies "sewer system", so it is essential to keep these systems moving!
Through the daily stretching routine you will not only experience more physical, but also mental and emotional wellbeing. You can experience life with a more relaxed and balanced outlook. Your posture will also gradually improve when sticking to the daily stretching routine. The benefits go on and on…
You can stretch anywhere and anytime! All it takes is your own personal commitment to do it. Stay persistent and you will reap the benefits that the daily stretching routine has to offer. I personally do something that I call "intuitive stretching" where I stretch freestyle without having a rigid routine. I use a yoga matt on which I practice my stretching exercises. I also find stretching with a gymnastic ball to be very beneficial for increasing blood and lymphatic flow in the back and spinal chord.
Stretching is for free, it’s fun and it’s very good for you!
Get into it!
