As we age, losing some of our natural flexibility is normal. As the years tick by, you may find yourself feeling a bit stiffer and finding it a bit tougher to move like you used to. Improving your flexibility can improve your quality of life and your overall health. Follow these tips to increase your range of motion.
Incorporate a stretching routine into your daily schedule to keep tendons tension free, increase flexibility in your joints and keep your muscles loose. Spend five minutes in the morning gently stretching and do another fast round before bed. This will slowly increase your range of motion and flexibility over time.
Exercising on a regular basis has so many great effects on health, including increasing your flexibility and range of motion. Get moving every day to make your body healthier and stronger. Whether you walk, hike, bike, run, swim, do cardio, yoga or something else, the important thing is to make time for exercise every day. Every little bit helps, so set small goals and find a routine you enjoy. Your joints and muscles will thank you!
