Start Your Morning Off Right With These Invigorating Stretches #WellnessWednesday
September 6, 2017
Looking to get your day off to a fantastic start? Wake up and stretch! Here are 3 super invigorating stretches you should commit to doing every morning as soon as you wake up.
Upwards Stretch: Sit cross-legged on any flat surface like your bed or the floor, interlock your hands and stretch upwards as you look towards the ceiling. This will get your blood flowing and will release any tension that formed in your muscles during the night.
Hamstring Stretch: Simply lay flat on the floor and lift one leg in the air as you grab the hamstring, pulling it back some. You should definitely feel it stretch nicely. Hold this for 60 seconds, or as long as possible for each leg.
Lunge Stretch: Stretching in a lunge position will work out the glutes, quads, hamstrings and calf muscles. Your legs will feel limber and ready for what the day has in store.
