3. S-t-r-e-t-c-h and Move Your Body!
What keeps you young and healthy? It is not your brain or your heart it is your muscles! Your muscles have the most mitochondria that keeps you young and healthy. When the muscle atrophies which can happen in 24 hours so does the mitochondria. The mitochondria communicates with the telomeres to reproduce the cell exactly or it begins the aging process and chips it away. Stretching exercises have powerful anti-aging and stress-busting abilities. Stretching your muscles after waking up can help jump-start the mind and body. Stretching loosens tight muscles helping your muscles to relax, increase blood flow, improve posture & flexibility, enhance stamina, reduce injury and soreness, improve athletic performance, & increase energy levels. It also encourages the release of endorphins, providing a sense of tranquility.
