Stretching provides a lot of benefits to the mind and body. Isn’t it that this is a normal instinct even among newborns? Some old folks also believe that a baby that stretches often will grow tall later on in his life.
Basically, stretching relieves the body of aches and pains. It helps build and relax the muscles as well as improve one’s posture.
Spanish Study Findings
A new research has found that other than its physical benefits, the act of stretching is helpful as well in relieving stress particularly at work. The study done by researchers from the Universidad de Zaragoza revealed that a stretching program done on a daily basis at a person’s desk can help relieve anxiety and pain.
