The best stretches for your body after a long day

The Best Stretches for Your Body After a Long Day

The best thing you can do for your body after a long day of work is move it -- but that doesn't necessarily mean you need to go running, per se. Often we confuse the idea of moving with our body as meaning high intensity, cardiovascular movement, when it can be just as valuable to do deep, slow stretching.

You could go to a yoga class or pilates to work this kind of exercise into your day, or you can simply learn a few key stretches to do in the comfort of your own home, and they will relax you at the end of your busy day, too.

Watch the video above and thank your body for getting you through today with Marawa The Amazing's sunset stretch.
