Health Tip: Find Time to Stretch
Include it in a busy schedule

(HealthDay News) -- Stretching is an essential part of a fitness plan, but sometimes it can be tough to find the time.

The American Council on Exercise suggests:

  • Stretch at least three days per week for at least 30 minutes. If that isn't possible, squeeze in five minutes of stretching after each workout.
  • Stretch for a few minutes as soon as you step out of a hot shower or bath. The heat will help prepare your muscles for stretching.
  • Start your day with stretches before you get out of bed. Point your toes and stretch your arms above your head.
  • Take a class that involves stretching, such as lessons for yoga or tai chi.
