Stretch for 5 minutes each day
Don't underestimate the importance of stretching. Often overlooked, a feel-good stretch offers many benefits. Stretching helps breathing and circulation. It improves flexibility and range of motion, too. It's relaxing, and it just plain feels good! Better yet, stretching can be done anywhere: at your desk, at your daughter's soccer game, even while standing in line at the store. If you're the type to plan out your daily exercise, mornings are perfect for stretching. This will not only prepare your muscles for the day, but it'll wake you up for a good start to the day.
