When it comes to feeling your greatest throughout the day, there are few things that will set you off on the right foot like a good morning stretch routine. Rise and shine often means out of bed and out the door, but if you can find a few minutes upon waking, whether it be pre-shower or post-coffee, your afternoon body and brain will reward you handsomely. Try a few of these simple stretches the next morning you think about it and see how they change your day for the better. Remember that vigorous stretching should be done with a warmed up body, so if you choose to do it straight out of bed, go a little easier.
All of these stretches are great for the lower back, which is the part of the body that takes the greatest beating during a day at the office. Being proactive about the health of your back is smart- in fact, it's the greatest investment you can make along with nutrition in order to stay productive and keep a smile on your face. For help on freeing your back from the grips of pain and returning to the greatest life you are capable of leading, give our office in the Bay Area a call and schedule an appointment today.
