Three Easy Stretching Exercises You Can Do in Bed

March 16, 2017

The medical alternative specialists at Holistic Bio Spa in Puerto Vallarta share three easy stretches you can do in bed, either before you go to sleep or once your alarm goes off, to keep you healthy.

Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico - Nowadays we find ourselves so busy with work and family responsibilities that we have little or no time to go to the gym. That is why we are going to share with you three easy stretches you can do in bed to keep you healthy.

Stretching... Why?

I know what you might be thinking, "Really! Stretching? How is stretching going to help me be more active and feel healthier?"

Stretching is a vital step for any physical activity. Whether your goal is to go to the gym three times a week, run a 5K marathon, or just to be more in shape, you need to start preparing your muscles.


So, before you throw stretching out of the window, we recommend you to take a look at some of the benefits it can give you:

• Improve your posture
• Get relief from pain
• Promotes blood circulation
• Relieve stress
• Increase your energy levels

When we use our muscles daily, they can get tight. Stretching can lessen muscle tightness and make your body feel balanced.

If your posture is a problem, make it a habit of stretching your muscles frequently. If you have back pain from sitting at a desk all day and you have no time to exercise, you are going to love our stretching tips you can do in your home.

Stretching tips at home

Stretching has a way of releasing stress and worry without a need to unroll your yoga mat. Here are three stretches you can do in your bed, either before you go to sleep or once your alarm goes off. Or both if you like.

Try to clear your mind as you stretch and focus on your body; this will make the exercise more productive and enjoyable.

1. Morning Sunshine
Lying on your back, extend your arms up over your head, arch your back as it lifts away from your bed or the mat. Spread your legs and take two long, deep breaths in and out. Feel how this stretch wakes you up and sets the stage for the next stretches. Before stretching, we recommend drinking alkaline lemon water which will help you wake up and make stretching more effective.

2. Butterfly
Sit with both knees bent, and the soles of the feet touching. Fold forward as far as you can with your arms in front of your feet. Breathe in and out as you enjoy this stretch for 30 seconds.

3. Seated Forward Bend
Sit on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you. Just like it shows in the image at the beginning of this article. Breath and extend your arms up towards the ceiling. Exhale and begin to bend forward gently by bringing your belly down to your thighs. Breath again, and, as you exhale, see if you can bring your upper body even closer to your legs. Hold for about 30 seconds or more. Go as far as you comfortably can, and work from there each time you do it.

Our certified specialists and practitioners love stretching every morning to feel more energized and be ready to walk beside you in your journey towards wellness.
