We all know when you feel good you look better, when you look better you act better and how you act gets translated into how you carry yourself.
Doing these 4 simple stretches before getting out of bed each morning can improve how you feel and build your confidence. The way you carry yourself is central to how you move through your day. When you have a flexible body you have a flexible mind. Little things don't seem to bother you and bigger things can be given the response they need instead of reacting out of frustrations or old habits.
Give these stretches a try each and every morning for the next 30 days. Be sure to write down how you feel in body, mind, and spirit before you start on day 0. Then reassess on day 15 and finally on day 30.
If you like to journal then do it more often, but if you are like me and think the concept of journaling is wonderful but never seem to find the time to do it jotting down a few words on how you feel and what you aches and pains you might have at the beginning, middle and end of this experiment will help give you the momentum to continue some form of stretching on a regular basis.
Once you get into the habit of stretching and loosening your body it will begin to crave it, kinda like the food cravings you have only this will be really good for your health!
I've been a student of yoga for many years. I haven't always been consistent with it but I do some form of bending and stretching every day without even thinking about it. I will catch myself hanging a bit longer if I need to pick up something from a lower drawer or off the floor. I am reaching overhead or tilting my ear to towards my shoulder to keep my neck loose when I've been on the computer a while or when I've been reading.
These simple movements will keep you in good health by helping your posture stay in alignment which reduces the loads you need to carry around. This, in turn, allows the energy for other things instead of feeling worn down from a tight body.
Give the stretches a try, you'll be glad you did!
