7 Morning Stretches To Start Your Day


Welcome to your daily dose of morning stretches! These 7 simple moves will help you start your day with a boost of energy and flexibility.


Slide into your day with a gentle stretch of your neck and shoulders. Slowly roll your head from side to side, and then shrug your shoulders up and down.


Next, reach for the sky with a standing side stretch. Interlace your fingers and stretch your arms up and over to one side, then switch to the other side.


Wake up your spine with a seated twist. Sit up tall and twist your torso to one side, placing your opposite hand on your knee for support. Repeat on the other side.


Now it's time to stretch out those hamstrings. Stand with your feet hip-width apart and slowly bend forward, reaching for your toes. Hold for a few seconds and then slowly come back up.


Don't forget to give your hips some love! Start in a lunge position with one foot forward and the other back. Slowly lower your back knee to the ground and hold for a few seconds before switching sides.


Time for a full body stretch! Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and reach your arms up and over your head, stretching your whole body. Hold for a few seconds and then release.


Let's get those legs moving with some high knees. Stand in place and lift your knees up towards your chest, alternating between legs. This will get your heart rate up and your blood flowing.


Finish off your morning stretches with a calming child's pose. Sit on your heels and slowly lower your torso down to the ground, reaching your arms out in front of you. Take a few deep breaths before slowly coming back up.


Congratulations, you've completed your 7 morning stretches! Now you're ready to take on the day with a clear mind and a limber body. Remember to listen to your body and modify any stretches as needed. See you tomorrow for another round!
