4 things that happen when you stretch every day

1. You increase blood flow

Stretching bring blood flow to muscles that are often underused throughout the day, helping them feel less tense and more relaxed. This boost in circulation helps revive muscles—almost like rehydrating them with a fresh supply of nutrients. So if you’ve been sitting at your desk for the last five hours (guilty), consider this your sign to get up and do a quick downward dog.

Research also shows that stretching increases blood flow to your brain, which can help you return to your desk clear-headed and ready to cross off the rest of your to-do list.
