7. Decrease tension headaches
Headaches caused by tension and stress can make it hard to make it through the day and take care of your responsibilities. Stretching combined with hydration and a good diet can help decrease tension headaches.
8. Improve performance
Stretching before playing any sports or physical activities have been shown to ready your muscles for the movements to come by keeping them loose, agile, and less likely to be injured.
After exercising and working out our muscles can get sore. In this recovery process, stretching can help our muscles work through this soreness and reach recovery faster.
