You may think that stretching isn’t a worthy pursuit, especially if you’re all about fast-paced movement and beating personal bests. But I promise you - stretching both before and after workouts has extraordinary benefits in the long run!
It’s not just sport's performance and physical activity which will improve - flexible muscles will enhance your daily performance in everything from bending forward, to carrying your kids and hurrying to catch the next bus!
Flexibility diminishes as we age, so it’s important to maintain awareness of particular areas of tension and discomfort. Also, knowing that it’s possible to regain and maintain flexibility by following a steady regime of simple movements and exercises over time can help to reduce any difficulty surrounding it.
Improving the range of motion in your joints also allows for a more energized approach to daily activities - it frees up space for energy to flow naturally and will result in overall increased levels of positivity.
Trust me, you WILL thank yourself!
