Oh, it just seems like so much work to stretch, doesn’t it? Trying to fit one more thing into your already too-busy day? What a hassle. Who needs it?
Well, it’s just my opinion, but I would say…YOU!
YOU are the one who needs to stretch. You, and me, and everyone—we all need to stretch.
Have you ever watched a dog or cat waking up? What is the very first thing that animal does, just as soon as it wakes up? Every animal, every time…stretches. Dogs and cats need to stretch and do it automatically.
And babies? What is the very first thing they do as soon as they wake up? And, multiple times throughout the day? Of course! They stretch. Babies need to stretch and they do it without even thinking about it.
And, you? If I was a betting woman, I’d be betting that as soon as you wake up, or pretty quickly, you hop out of bed and get going. What do you do before you fall asleep? Who’s got TIME to stretch, says you. Who NEEDS to stretch, says me.
