Stretching helps the muscles, tendons and entire body recover after contracting through exercise or simply sitting down for long periods of time. Here at Bali Weight Loss it’s more about just looking slim, — you should actually feel and be healthy, flexible and in great shape. Stretching helps in keeping your body young, with a good range of motion around the joints.
Without a balanced stretching routine the muscles can become permanently contracted and shortened, resulting in tightness and aches and pains, possibly resulting in an inability to stretch at all.
While a regular stretching routine keeps the muscles long, lean and flexible, releases tension, it has also been shown to correlate to a very healthy effect on the mind and clarity throughout the day.
