On the very last day of the 10-day challenge, we challenge you to give yourself a full-body stretch.
The benefits of stretching extend well beyond your workout regime and is a great way to check in with your body. It is especially important if you spend most of your day sitting or doing repetitive movements. Stretching will help you improve your mind-body connection and is known to ease aches and pains, increase your flexibility, increase blood flow and relieve stress.
For every stretch you do, make sure to breathe slowly into the stretch and imagine the tension is melting away. For deeper relaxation, close your eyes and hold the stretches a little bit longer.
Feeling like you really need to relieve some tension? Try taking a Yoga or Pilates class. Many studios offer gentle classes specifically designed to help you to relieve tension in your body and de-stress. You can even find classes on YouTube that you can do for free in the comfort of your own home.
After 10 days of self-care, we hope you are feeling energized and refocused. Taking care of yourself is an important piece to your health and wellness journey, and we hope this has inspired you to make your self-care a priority.
