Stretch every day

You’ve heard how important pre- and post-stretching is before a workout. But it is also good for you when you aren’t going to exercise. But how should you be doing it? Instead of rolling out of bed, arch your back or kick-start circulation by lifting your legs to push off your blankets. Use the side of the bed to bend over and stretch your back and neck. Stretching helps lengthen muscles and give a lean, tone look to your body.
