5 Benefits of Nighttime Stretching
Stretching is ALWAYS a good idea, but if you're interested in developing a nighttime routine, here are 5 additional benefits of stretching before bed:
It can improve your quality of sleep by decreasing stress and calm the nervous system.
It reduces inflammation & prevents injury, which adds grace to the aging process.
It can help decrease pain, especially that felt within your shoulders, back, and legs - areas that can keep you tossing through the night.
It can alleviate menopausal symptoms. A light intensity stretch can reduce hot flashes and depressive feelings.
It creates a better morning. If you're less sore and well-rested, you're more likely to have a good next day!
