WHY IS STRETCHING SO IMPORTANT??? (Hold each stretch for 30 seconds) #Stretching is an extremely important practice to add to your daily routine to be on your way to better health. Even if you are not planning on exercising vigorously, it is still important to stretch in order to receive multiple benefits for your body and your mind. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Benefits of Stretching Stretching has multiple benefits for both your body and your mind. Incorporating stretching into your daily routine allows muscles to be well circulated and ultimately healthier. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Benefits of Stretching for the Body Flexibility Stretching improves flexibility. The more you stretch, the more you move your muscles, and the more flexible you become. Over time, stretching will become easier for your body which results in improved flexibility. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Posture Stretching is also beneficial to improve your posture. Poor posture—a common and increasing problem—can easily be reversed and healed with daily stretching. Because stretching strengthens your muscles and encourages proper alignment, your body posture will be less slouched and more vertical. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Injury Prevention The more you prepare your muscles for any exercising movement, the more your likelihood of injury is decreased. When your muscles are warm and stretched, movement becomes easier and more fluid-like which helps with injury prevention. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Increased Nutrients and Reduced Soreness Most people know that stretching increases blood supply, but they do not realize that it also increases nutrient supply to muscles. Because stretching allows blood to flow through your body, the nutrients in the blood are being carried and spread out all throughout your body as well. An increased blood and nutrient supply also helps reduce soreness. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
