We are soooo excited that Blogilates is doing a 28 day stretch challenge this month!!! Before deciding to commit to the full 28 days, we decided to do some research on some additional benefits stretching every day for a month might get us, besides the ones we expect, like increased flexibility. Here's what we found!!
Not only does taking a few minutes to stretch every day help take your mind off your worries, it also releases the tension in your muscles, causing you to feel less stressed!
Certain gentle twisting poses can increase the blood flow to your bowels and reduce inflammation. Some bloating and stomach discomfort can actually be caused by stress, and certain stretches will increase the circulation and energy to your digestive region, helping to speed along the digestive process!
When you stretch, one of the most important parts is focusing on keeping your breaths deep and consistent. Inhaling and exhaling helps slow down the racing thoughts in your head that cause anxiety.
Don't you always feel so relaxed after doing a few stretches? If you do them before bed, that relaxation might make it easier to fall asleep!
Stretching has been shown to help your body release endorphins, triggering feelings of happiness!
Because stretching involves so much muscle work, it can help improve the function your muscles need to keep you balanced! Like if you trip, your muscles might be able to react faster and catch you before you fall!
