Benefits of Stretching

    

Stretching exercises are essential in any workout, as they make it more efficient and safe; but doing stretching exercises as part of everyday physical activities is also important because of its benefits.

Regular stretching keeps muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, which is necessary to maintain a good range of motion, to improve performance in daily physical activities, to decrease the risk of injury, to help delay the reduced mobility that comes with aging, and to slow joint degeneration.

Doing stretching exercises improves blood flow to the muscles, which reduces muscle tension, promotes muscle relaxation, and decreases or prevents muscle soreness.

A regular stretching routine can help prevent back pain by strengthening the back muscles and reducing the risk of muscle strain. Besides, stretching is excellent for relieving stress and calming down the mind, especially when combined with mindfulness and meditation exercises.
