When you're young and nimble, it seems like you can do just about anything without stretching. There was no need to stretch out your muscles 20 years ago, but that's not really the case now.
As you age, your body becomes less flexible, especially if you aren't stretching every day. If you have a sit-down job, for example, you run the risk of becoming less flexible more quickly than someone who moves around a lot throughout the day.
There is some good news, though - you can help combat this aging process by doing daily stretches that give your body the chance to move. You'll also be able to find some peace of mind (and have a moment of quiet) while doing these stretches. According to the Mayo Clinic, stretching can help reduce the risk of injury and help your joints work properly.
Best of all, you can even do these before you get out of bed in the morning!!
