Here are 3 ways to stay flexible

Because of a sedentary lifestyle, our body tends to stiffen up and becoming flexible will help you feel better.

Here are 3 ways to stay flexible:

Body Stretches: This article from Prevention gives some benefits of stretching

1 – Boost cardio exercise for just 20 minutes a day.

2 – Do body stretches help:

  • Increases blood flow
  • Helps prevent falls and supports stability
  • Relieves stiff muscles and joints

3 – Get regular massages.

What is considered regular massage?  Consider these factors as it depends on your lifestyle:

1) Do you have a physically demanding or stressful job 2) How is your sleeping pattern or the bed & pillow comfort and 3) Do you listen to your body through awareness – does your body give signals of aches & pains.

You see, massage should be considered as preventative – it prevents aches & pains and/or injury.

Don’t wait until your body feels those pesky aches & pains.  If you find yourself at this stage, you’ve waited to long.  I recommend massage every 3-6 weeks as a preventative, not a repair.
