What stretches can be done to get my neck ready for the day?

So i do this, sit with your legs crossed, straighten your back then take left arm and lay it next to you. Relax it, you should feel the weight of it. Then tilt your head to the right. After few moments take right hand and place it on the head and push a little more. You should feel the sting

Lower your chin to your chest and hold it for 15-30 seconds or the longest you can hold it ! .
You can also tilt your head all the way back and have your chin to the sky and hold it for 15-30 seconds . Hope this helps !. 🙂

I dont really do specific types of stretches. But I do rotate my neck a couple of times from left to right or right to left, sometimes front to back or back to front. This helps me alot, how it helped you

honestly what i do is i just move my neck back n forth then side to side then i’ll always crack my neck in the mornings too but be careful with cracking your neck but i don’t really have certain neck stretches 🙂 and if ur neck is hurting on one side keep moving ur head side to side ur neck should loosen up and same thing if the back of ur neck hurt just move ur neck back n forth :)<3

Well, I don’t worry too much about it but I do just do normal stretches or stretching activities accessible on this app but I’m sorry I can’t really help too much

Ear to Shoulder/Neck Rolls. Probably the most popular and well known stretch for relieving neck tension, the yoga equivalent takes it a little bit further. .

Instead of rolling your head all the way around 360 degrees, focus on rotation your head so that your face faces the ground left to right. This way you relieve the pressure in the plates instead of building it by going back onto them.

Here is a list of neck stretches: neck rolls, tilting the head forward and backward, tilting the head side to side, and shoulder rolls. There are a lot more than that, but hopefully those helped.

Tip your head to the side and gently stretch it. Repeat on other side then do small gently neck circles. Bend chin down to ground. Done. ☺

Head circles, tilting your head to each side while using your hand to pull it down, and tilting your head forward while putting your hands on the back of your head and pulling down.

Giulian B.
You move your neck back and forward first slowly then move it left and right as always slowly, then you do circles in clockwise and reverse so you can have it fully stretched and ready for the day 🙂

Let your head almost rest on your left shoulder as much as you can (if you can, stretch your right hand to the ground at the same time to help reach muscles in your shoulders as well) and hold for as long as you like. It can be a little uncomfortable, but that's not a bad thing! When you're ready, switch sides.

My family has a waffle maker and batter that is made the night before. The waffle only takes about 2 minutes to make… my parents also always make sure i eat something so even before i downloaded this app it has been a habit to always eat breakfast. I remember not being hungry but my parents telling me i had to eat… Now i breakfast everymorning. It will be hard at first but just like any other habit once you have it (and make it easy as possible to complete) you will stick with it

Roll neck around both directions, to the right and to the left. Nice big rolls. Put arm on head to tilt head and use arm weight to stretch side of neck, then switch to other side. Let head fall forward to stretch back of neck, put hands on head for extra weight to stretch. Let head fall backward and look up to stretch front of neck.

That's a good question. I haven't gotten that far yet, I'm actually trying to figure that out myself. I'll look into it and try to get an answer. Thank you for bringing it to my attention!

Diana U.
I usually start by tilting my head back and forth a couple of times then to the sides. After that, I move my neck in a circular way for a couple of times then I do it slower.

Rolling my neck around a couple times in the morning and/or when I need to stretch really allows me to get out all the cracks and refreshes me.

Rolling your neck in circler motions will help, as well as moving it side to side. About 10 seconds on each side will give you a really nice stretch. If you want even more of a stretch, put your hand on your head (or neck, it's your choice) and gently pull. More stretchs include, looking down for couple of seconds and then looking down! Having a break from any devices will really make a difference. In the morning, unless you really need to, try giving all your devices a break and try to meditate, go outside for a morning run or even just look at the world around you. These small, but big differences will be the world of good for you and your neck!

I normally stretch my neck , by moving my tipping my head from left to right . Then front to back . I also do neck rolls

Shoulder stiffness often results in neck pain. This stretch should take 3-5 minutes. You can do it!

To start, stand straight up, take 3 deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth, tuck your elbows in and make circles with your elbows, start small and go bigger. After 20 rotations let your elbows touch in front of you and take another 3 breaths. Now gently move your head to one shoulder and push your elbows harder to eachother when you want more stretch.
6 breaths each side will be enough.
Now stand straight up again with hands resting on the hips and rotate your head slowly clockwise for 5 rotations and counterclockwise. Try to time one rotation with 2 slow breaths.

I hope you feel a little better and good luck with your day!

Keep your head squarely over your shoulders and back straight. Slowly turn your head to the right until you feel a stretch in the side of your neckband shoulder. Hold the stretch for 15-30 seconds and then slowly turn your head forward again. Repeat on your left side.
