Benefits of Flexibility.

Flexibility can be described as the ability of your joints and body parts to move in their full range of motion. Flexibility is required in all your daily activities such as walking, bending, lifting,. Being flexible allows your muscles to remain mobile.

But, like most things, flexibility decreases with age and it is very vital to include flexibility exercises in your daily workout regimen. Over time muscles will naturally lose strength and can become less elastic and stiffer.

No , you don't have to be able to do a split or put your feet behind your head to be flexible because let's be real, those moves are not really necessary for day to day living.

Flexibility has a much larger impact on your physical wellness than you realize. Being flexible and having full joint mobility can have several beneficial implications on your quality of life especially as you get older .


Keep in mind that there's no such thing as having an "optimal" level of flexibility that everyone should strive for. As long as you have enough range of motion to do the tasks you need to do safely, you are doing great.

Prevent daily injury
Once you develop strength and flexibility in your body you’ll be able to withstand more physical stress. We do countless daily activities that can cause muscle strains and aches that can be alleviated from flexibility exercises.

Less Pain
Your body is likely to feel better once you begin stretching . When your muscles are looser and less tense, you’ll struggle with fewer aches and pains. And are less likely to experience muscle cramps.

Improved circulation
The tension in our muscles affects circulation, this can prevent nutrients and oxygen from properly moving through the body. When muscles are more flexible they are relaxed and there is improved circulation.

Better posture and balance.
Poor flexibility places unnecessary strain on your muscles and joints, which can often result in poor posture. Stretching and increasing flexibility helps to correct poor posture as tight muscles affect your spine's alignment. Stretching allows you to have proper alignment and correct any imbalances.

Taking steps to become more flexible can be an amazing way to connect to yourself and your body. So I encourage you to get your yoga mats out and do some stretching . It might be a bit uncomfortable at first but down the line you'll be thanking me for sure .
