Stretching improves your mood as it is effective in releasing the tension in your body. Stretching gets your blood flowing and promotes overall relaxation slowly releasing both tension and endorphins, it’s almost euphoria for the mind! The best part is how it can enhance your mood. It will make you feel more positive about all the work you have, the gym session you told yourself you must attend or the early morning alarm you needed to set before bed. If you suffer from insomnia or have difficulty falling asleep at night, stretching before bedtime will definitely help to rid the anxiousness you feel when your head hits the pillow!
If you stretch enough to realise the benefits, putting time aside to stretch daily will be something you look forward to. It can be your quiet time away from the stress of work, kids, bills or anything causing your brain to go into overload. It is the best way to unwind and give your body and mind their well-deserved relaxation and recovery time while improving your overall wellness.
