Stretch to relieve Stress

We can take a time-out from stress by stretching, which is a great way to relax. Easy stretches can be done in a chair at our desk when the tension mounts. Add in a little deep breathing to increase our oxygen supply to the brain and may we find ourselves feeling and thinking better.

Do we need a recap? Stretching more often can help us to relieve muscle tension, prevent stiffness, injury and overuse syndromes. It can contribute to balance and coordination and help us to reduce mental stress. We get all this and it feels good too! Have we stretched today?
