Bendy and flexible? Yes, thank you!

Fitness flexibility is the amount of natural flexibility you require for the normal tasks and activities you do during the course of your life. Physical flexibility is important during one’s adult years because it not only helps one to stay in shape but also prevents injuries from occurring. Flexibility is the ability of the body to bend without breaking.   As a person ages they begin to slow down and movement becomes a difficult. Lack of mobility, is the primary reason for this. Having a very sedentary lifestyle will accelerate the process of losing natural flexibility, while being active, exercising, and moving around will keep you limber. We are born flexible, it is remaining flexible that is the problem. Loss of flexibility happens when our collagen structure begins to change.   Some people are just naturally more flexible than others. Flexibility exercises will produce and sustain a broader base of motion in people and help safeguard them against injury. Flexibility training is broadly accepted as a way to increase joint mobility. Stretching should be a part of your daily routine. After you exercise, while your body is still warm, you should complete a full stretching regimen. Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi are great in helping you to increase your flexibility. One of the greatest benefits of stretching is that you’re able to increase your range of motion, which means your limbs and joints can move further without discomfort or injury.Flexibility exercise contributes to mental health benefits.  An inflexible body could be due to a rigid personality and an inflexible mind. A tense body leads to a tense mind. We hold our emotions in our muscles as well as our minds. Once you release the negativity from your mind, you will find obtaining flexibility is very much easier.
