Have you ever noticed how much people just don't stretch?
Thursday nights I attempt to make it to a yoga class at a local yoga studio. I tend to start the class tense and stiff, but as class progresses, I begin to loosen up and feel really good. So good I often wonder, why don't I stretch more on my own.
Why don't we stretch more on our own?
Stretching feels good - really, really, really good, but I seldom do it except right after working out. Even as I stretch after a workout, I normally rush through it because it's stretching. And I want to get it over with.
But why do we feel the need to hurry through the stretching when it feels sooooooooo good?
Ideally, I would love to get up in the morning, and dedicate 10-15 minutes of stretching but as much as stretching feels good, sleeping an additional 10-15 minutes is so much better.
Maybe I should try to stretch more.
However, as I'm typing, my eyelids are slowly closing so maybe I should hold on to that extra 10-15 minutes of sleep instead....
