Don’t you feel as active as before? Can you touch your toes or is it hard for you to even tie your shoelaces? You may be losing flexibility. A sedentary lifestyle, when we sit in front of a computer from morning to night, causes muscle contraction and dulls our flexibility. Spend a few minutes stretching every day. Return the former vitality in a short time!
The main condition for being healthy and fit
Flexibility depends on mobility and age. While athletes need to be very flexible in order to compete, we have enough flexibility to carry out day-to-day tasks with ease. Flexibility is an often overlooked condition of health and fitness because it is not the direct cause of disease in our bodies.
Muscles are like rubber
When muscles become stronger or contract from inactivity, they stretch less. When we do not stretch regularly, our joint mobility is limited, which affects our daily life and reduces its quality. Posture disorders result from imbalance and loss of muscle flexibility. This, in turn, puts a lot of stress on the joints and vertebrae, causing various inconveniences, pain, and possibly permanent disability.
Stretching movements are good for pain relief
A well-planned stretching program reduces stress on the joints. In this way, injuries resulting from imbalances in strength between muscles and loss of flexibility due to aging are minimized. Helps with lower back pain and other muscle and joint problems.
Stretching increases the production of “glycoaminoglycans,” a jelly-like substance that prevents muscle fibers from sticking together, allowing us to move more freely and painlessly. Glycoaminoglycan also helps regenerate collagen, which protects and supports joints. Thus, the risk of an inflammatory disease of the joints called arthritis, rheumatism, which occurs as a result of friction of the articular bones against each other, is reduced.
tense body, tense mind
Due to the close relationship between physical stress and psychological stress, stretching exercises also play an important role in coping with stress. Some stretching exercises are good for headaches caused by overly tight neck muscles that reduce blood flow to the brain. Most of us keep stress in the hip area. Reducing tension in this strategic area between the lower and upper body allows us to release the stress caused by chronic pain.
Invest in a flexible body
Incorporate simple stretching exercises into your daily routine. This investment will give you back a dynamic body, physical and mental harmony, reduce pain and make you feel better.
