One of my goals for 2018 is to incorporate stretching into my regular routine. I have this goal because I want to become better at yoga, have less tightness when I spin, and have better posture.
To help me achieve this goal I have a stretching plan that I try to do 3 times per week. I came up with this plan by doing a little research online, deciding which stretches felt good, and what areas of my body needed more flexibility.
So far this year I have really noticed a difference:
My yoga practice has improved
My hips are less tight
I have less back pain
I usually do these stretches in the evenings while I watch TV. The whole sequence of stretches only takes about 15 minutes.
The end of the year is upon us and with that comes a schedule that is pretty crazy! I sat down today to try to get all my ducks in a row and realized I do certain things to tame that crazy! So, I want to share a few tips and tricks that help me, in hopes that it will make your end of year/holiday season a little calmer!
