7 Minutes to Mobility and Flexibility!

Everyone knows how important stretching is, but most don’t do it every day. It’s one of those things most of us don’t think about unless we start experiencing pain or tightness somewhere in our body. Rather than thinking of stretching just as “injury prevention” or as a “have-to” task, what about thinking of it as a way to improve performance, a way to reduce stress and to help you feel more energized throughout the day?

Now that I have your attention – mobility & flexibility exercises can be done whenever, wherever. Try to get in a minimum of seven minutes DAILY of mobility/flexibility work.

When can you get this done?

  • Watching TV
  • While on a conference call
  • When you wake up in the morning
  • Right before bed
  • While you’re sitting at your desk

 You have 96 increments of 15 minutes in a 24-hour day. Use half of one of those to stretch and you will see an improvement in your performance, stress levels, and feel less pain during the day.
