Stretching releases stored muscle tension caused by accumulated stress. This effect will help you relax and overcome symptoms of insomnia.
Stretching stimulates the release of chemicals called endorphins, which are naturally produced in your body. They are happy-feeling hormones.
Sense of Accomplishment
Inactivity can make you feel as if you are going backward health-wise. Stretching frees you from that experience of decline. Stretching can transform you from being inactive to being active – you are on the road to limberness. Every little stretch is racking up points and you feel you are on the right road.
Stretching makes our bodies feel better and gives you a greater overall sense of well-being and self-perception. It also evokes happiness and puts you in a sacred idleness, as you savor that moment when all is in harmony.
Miss Less Work or Important Activities
So many people miss work or other activities because of lower back pain or other muscular problems. Many times, stretching can help avoid costly treatments and time away from places you want to be and activities you want to do.
Stretching relaxes and lengthens tight muscles. This allows greater freedom of movement and reduces your risk of pain and injuries, such as strains, sprains, and spasms.
Stretching increases flexibility, making people more inclined to fidget and enjoy the many combined benefits, including burning calories (can lose 30-40 pounds a year).
Stretching has been shown effective for regulating blood glucose with minimal effort required, so can improve ability to lose weight and combat diabetes.
Improved Joint Mobility
Stretching helps to reduce joint inflammation and pain. This is especially helpful to those afflicted with arthritis and symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Stretching has been proven to improve cardiovascular health, lowering blood pressure, and decreasing incidence of stroke and heart disease.
Increased Blood Circulation
Stretching increases blood flow to muscles and joints, thus restoring energy and reducing complications caused by Type 2 diabetes and arterial heart disease. With improved circulation, our bodies also absorb more nutrition and eliminate waste products more efficiently.
Stretching and other low-intensity exercise invigorate you better than a caffeine drink and has also been shown to be effective for improving cognitive health in older adults.
Stretching helps to realign soft tissue structures that have adapted to poor postural habits and gravity.
Study Shows Reduced Risk of All-Cause Morbidity
Stretching works your muscles and combats the effects of sedentary life-styles, including reducing the risk of all-cause morbidity (see Section 7).
