Super Stretch

It can be so easy to get stuck on your butt ~ in front of the computer, on the couch, in the car, on a plane… We often spend several hours a day just sitting!

Recent research has shown that the more time you spend sitting, the more likely your health will suffer as a result.

Heath issues related to too much sitting include:

  • Greater risk of heart disease
  • Slower metabolism, even for those who exercise regularly
  • Greater risk of diabetes
  • Higher chance of elevated cholesterol
  • Higher chance of obesity
  • Even a greater risk of certain cancers

Why Stretch?

You don’t have to roll out a yoga mat and do anything crazy. Just stand up and stretch. Some benefits of stretching include:

  • A clearer mind and refreshed outlook, preparing you for whatever work or concentration you’ll require in the next hour.
  • Reduced risk of injury when you do move or exercise.
  • Increased flexibility.
  • Increased blood flow.
  • Reduced inflammation.
  • Reduced muscle tension.
  • Increased energy levels.
  • Relaxation and stress relief.
  • Improved balance.
  • Improved posture.
  • Improved mood.
