Stretching is not just somthing that is done before sports, it's a great way to wake up your body after a nights sleep.
Upon waking up we are tired, stiff and unable to think. This is due to a lack of blood flow and oxygen to the body and mind. It takes time for our body to increase blood flow so that we can function again.
Stretching in the morning will increase the blood flow around our body and loosen up our muscles so that we feel more alert and awake.
