What better way to start your day...
...than by activating and energizing the structure that houses your central nervous system. No matter what your job or lifestyle, your spine is going to be under threat all day. So the best way to prevent this threat from causing damage is by being proactive about strengthening and stretching your spine. Now, we understand that very few people have the time or determination to complete an exercise routine before they go to work. We are not asking you to make such a drastic lifestyle adjustment- instead, we are suggesting that you take 5-10 minutes out of your morning to stretch. In particular we want you to elongate your spine. This helps:
- Jumpstart your circulation, getting oxygen and nutrients flowing to your spine
- Decrease tension in the supporting muscles which will aid in posture all day.
- Improve mobility of the spinal joints
Living pain free starts with your morning routine
As you can see, elongating your spine is a great way to start your day. Yoga poses like Child's Pose require very little physical investment but they help your spine feel energized and refreshed. In turn, this reduces the likelihood for stiffness and aching that will set in throughout a day of hard work. The knock-on effect is that your brain will be less distracted, and you will be functioning at a higher level.
