Stretching is your body breathing and makes you feel good! Stretching is a key component to Healthy Living and Longevity! Whether you’re a hard core athlete, dancer, housewife or couch potato – you need to stretch! Stretching rebalances and rejuvenates your body after a workout, a long period of sitting or a stressful afternoon. Everyone benefits from stretching. We all have different forms of stress in our lives and whether it’s physical, mental, emotional, self induced or from exterior sources – stretching is the perrrrrfect medicine! It is one of the best ways to increase your range of motion and get the chi (your energy or your life force) to flow free thru your body. It is also a fantastic way to relieve anxiety, stress and tension. Stress is currently being called the “Black Plague” of society today - due to the fact that it is the number one root cause of all fatal diseases and all dis-harmony in our bodies and in our lives. Regular stretching reduces the harmful effects that stress has on the body, while making you feel good. Without stretching we become stiff in our physical body and blocked in our energetic body, which does not promote healthy living. Stretching gets the energy moving, so your mind and body can be open and free. Stretching also helps us find peace and relaxation, another important factor in Healthy Living that people tend to forget about. For athletes, dancers and exercise enthusiasts, stretching helps your mind body connection, improves your coordination, and helps to prevent injuries. For artists stretching keeps the mind and body relaxed and clear, setting the right space for creativity to flow free.
I could go on and on about the benefits of stretching, but more importantly, you need to see for yourself. For the next 28 days do a little bit of stretching everyday!!! I’m sure you will see why stretching is key to Healthy Living and feeling good.
