The benefits of morning stretches for seniors can’t be emphasized enough.
Animals upon waking instinctively know to stretch.
They lengthen their backs to stretch muscles, tendons, ligaments and free up their joints.
We should take a lesson from them!
Why Do Morning Stretches For Seniors?
Stretching in the morning (or any time throughout the day) is vital to unlocking your joints and increasing your mobility so that you can move easily through your everyday tasks.
And an added benefit is that you are actually burning calories as you are stretching those muscles… getting lean, long, and strong!
Here are just a few more of the many benefits of stretching:
-Increases your flexibility
-Increases range of motion
-Helps prevent injuries
-Helps alleviate pain
-Increases blood flow to the muscles
-Improves your posture
