Why is stretching important?

Isaac J.
Stretching is important cause if you don't stretch, your muscles contracts in a way that you can hurt yourself. Stretching is something you should do daily like walking for example, when you walk you're stretching your legs, when you move your fingers. Stretching is an activity you sometimes do without thinking but nowadays it's rare that we go outside to walk and even do get up from the bed. Stretching is good, before a workout, when you wake up and when you go to sleep. Stretching stretches your muscles.

Stretching in the morning can help relieve any tension or pain from sleeping the night before by reducing the tension on your spine or any other body stiffness you are experiencing. By stretching you are actually helping your muscles relax, after lying down for a long period of time, stretching can take away any stiffness because it is elongating the muscles.
In addition, in order to fully function, you need to get blood flowing throughout your body and into your brain and stretching will help increase blood flow.
There are plenty of benefits of stretching as soon as you wake up, hope these few help!

Stretching is a must for everyone! It makes our mind fresh and help us to concentrate better. Sometimes we neglect it due to work, but that shouldn't happen. We must fix a time and we should take one minute of our day for ourselves.
