Weekend Challenge: Stretch It Out!
This weekend, I would like you to move (walk, run, bike, gardening, anything active) for 5-10 minutes (or feel free to accumulate your 30 minutes all at once. Go for it!) and then spend another 5-10 minutes stretching. Hold each stretch for 10-15 seconds. Do not bounce during these stretches. If the stretch feels comfortable to you, take a deep breath in and as you exhale reach a little further. Stretching does not need to be in a fancy position. Do what is comfortable to you. With time and practice, you will notice an improvement.
Stretching can be a nice quiet time that helps you recharge and refocus. Do yourself a favor and stretch it out!
