So many people believe that they are inflexible, that they have never been flexible and it is just the way that their body is. This is actually wrong.
We are born flexible, we lose it over time. Have you seen a baby sucking it’s toes like its nothing? Of course babies are flexible so that they can be born BUT as kids if they repeat the range of motion their body can do they would stay flexible.
It is true however that for some people it can be a lot harder than others to regain that flexibility once it is lost. If we don’t move our bodies regularly into certain positions we can see increased stiffness in our joints, and a loss of elasticity in muscles and tendons. This causes are bodies to slow down, we can see more injuries and can effect our balance and posture.
Now you know how you loose it, what are the benefits of gaining flexibility?
There are so many but the main ones are:
- fewer injuries
- less pain
- improved posture and balance
- better mental health
- increased mobility
- improves circulation
- can actually increase your strength
As you can see there are a lot of benefits to becoming flexible. It can improves your physical and mental health which in turn creates balance not only in your body but in your mind as well. When we are balanced we feel a sense of calm and happiness.
