Regular stretching can help increase your flexibility, which is crucial for your overall health. Not only can improved flexibility help you to perform everyday activities with relative ease, but it can also help delay the reduced mobility that can come with ageing.
For the next week, I am going to take you through some stretches you can do at home to increase your flexibility and mobility. Today was glute and hip stretch day, our glutes are inactive during sitting and our hips tend to tighten from prolonged sitting so these simple stretches can help alleviate some of that joint tightness and wake up your glutes.
Remember whilst working from home to get up and move around every 30 minutes even if it’s just a walk up and down the stairs or to put the kettle on, active your muscles.
Make your body move for better health and wellbeing.
Just five minutes exercise each day to help you mobilise your body, wake up your muscles and refresh your brain. Take five minutes out of your day to work on your balance, strength and muscle tone.
When exercising at home please be aware of your own limits, work within your boundaries and always build up slowly.
I hope you enjoy it!
