Stretching and relaxation techniques help relieve tense muscles, pain and promote rest.
I incorporate stretching and yoga into my daily routine. I learned to incorporate these techniques after suffering from chronic pain for more than 20 years. I realized stretching combined with deep breathing reduced my recovery time and pain. It also became a staple for a restful nights sleep. I try to stretch throughout the day and before bed. Through stretching and yoga, I have learned to listen to my body and focus on the areas that are sore or tight. My chronic pain has improved significantly with nutrigenomics but a healthy fitness and stretching routine keeps your muscles active, reduce toxins and improve circulation.
I engage in stretching and yoga anywhere, literally. Examples: In the park, washing dishes, brushing teeth or serving water. It seems silly but we stand in the same position for several minutes throughout the day. So, I decided to use my time wisely and engage myself in a little stretch. I engage in a quick stretch while I brush my teeth. It sounds strange I know. But really helps incorporate more stretching into my day and promote lymphatic drainage. I don’t care what people think while I stretch, all I care about is my body and reducing tension. So why not incorporate a routine into your day. Would you like to see a video of my stretch routines?
