For many of us, we only remember to care for our health when something is amiss. You start eating healthier when you’re sick and go to a chiropractor after you’ve pulled a muscle. However many issues that arise with our health can easily be prevented with just a bit of consistency. For those with aches and pains from long days in an office chair, or who pull a muscle after a move, there are weaknesses in the muscles or ligaments that could have been addressed earlier. In addition to remaining active, stretching can go a long way towards preventing pain and injury.
Even for those who aren’t regularly working out, stretching regularly can do a lot to increase your flexibility, strength, and overall health. The good news is that it doesn’t take a lot of time to reap these benefits, either. You can spend a few minutes in the morning or evening.
