Mojo Monday 1: Stretch Like a Dog


The Underutilized Stretch

We read daily the importance of stretching before and after exercise. We watch animals, our pets in particular, stretch throughout the day that seems also to be code for everything from scratch my belly to I want to play. But we humans make minimal use of this super satisfying movement. Why is that?

Why do we not do more of those things that are really good for us and that feel good – like stretching. But we instead forget or even avoid it? As an experiment, respond to the question in a journal. Next, try a week of indulging in the art of stretching and then re-visit the question and see if your response has changed.
