Do you prefer stretching in the morning as soon as you wake up or in the evening before bed and why?

Nicoline E.
I hold a lot of stress and anxiety in my back and shoulders and I sit at a desk for my job. I tend to stretch through out the day. I do find that I wake up more stiff and I make sure to stretch every morning just as I’m getting out of bed. My grandfather always told me that a good stretch and rubbing the soles of your feet on the carpet will generate blood flow and get you awake and ready for the day. I can’t say that he was wrong!

Before bed is important to me because I feel like I can release all the stress and tension from the day, but also in the morning to get the blood moving!

Yes to both! Right after I wake up, while still in bed, I stretch every bit I can, right down to wiggling my toes. I breathe deeply, and imagine taking the breath into every muscle. I also use that time to "greet the day," say a prayer, start right. Then in the evening, at best I like to do a 30-minute yoga session, and at least take 3 minutes to breathe deeply and stretch to the sky, do Mountain Pose, or otherwise "stretch the day out of my bones." I also like to add a 3-minute stretching session with some breathing at 3:00 pm, to get me through the low-energy part of the day. If I can put earbuds in and stretch and breathe to a Fabulous guided meditation, or meditative music, all the better! All this really, really does help me get through my day calmly!

Light stretching in morning is great Becks body has become stiff from sleeping 8 hrs. But I don’t do it because I’ve been lazy

I prefer in the morning as that is when I eusually exercise. I use Wii Active Sports 2 which always starts with stretches and finishes with cool down stretches.

Definitely in the morning! My aging body needs to stretch before moving, otherwise I’m kinda stiff all day & more prone to headaches.
Stretching in the evening before bed is good too, to relax. Although I’m usually so tired by bed time, I just drift off..

Both! In the morning I do some energizing stretches to start my day right while in the evening I do calming stretches to have a good sleep

I prefer to stretch in the evening. Mostly because I take time to workout every morning and a stretch seems unnecessary. It’s also nice to lay in bed with a relaxed and adjusted body.

At night. In the morning I find I am so stiff I find stretching painful and counterproductive. Maybe after I am consistently getting light exercise in the morning, I will stretch after it.
