Recently, I have been trying to stretch every day to increase my flexibility. I used to stretch a lot when I played tennis, but since then I have never really stretched (except as a quick warmup if I’m playing basketball or something).
However, I have realized how inflexible I have become, especially when I try to do stretching exercises such as touching my toes. While I used to be able to do this stretch easily, I can now only get 3/4 of the way down.
I have recently reincorporated stretching for several reasons: first, it feels good to stretch if you do it correctly; second, being more flexible will help me in sports such as spikeball and basketball; and third, I am trying to prevent potential muscle injuries.
This article by VeryWellFit has 8 great stretching exercises that are relatively easy and don’t take too long to do. I am sure that many people have heard of most of the exercises already, but if not, it is great to learn about how to properly stretch. Also, even if you already stretch on a daily basis, it is always great to refresh your memory.
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
