The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Stretch
Stretching Feels Good.
Stretching develops body awareness. When we stretch a certain part of our body, we get in touch with that part of our body. Stretching is like saying "hello" to ourselves.
Try stretching in-between meetings or in-between emails. Shifting our focus from our "to-do list" to our bodies is helpful. When we take breaks from our work to relax, we can be more calm and focused when we continue our work. Calm and focused = more productive.
Stretching is a simple way to connect with our bodies. Remember to approach stretching with gentleness. Less is more. Notice how a small amount of stretching effects your entire body.
