Stretch it out

There’s no better way to start your day than to have a nice and uninterrupted stretching. I used to do stretching when I was actively involved in losing weight. I warm up by stretching. Stretching helps a lot in preventing injuries due to strenuous exercises. I lay flat on my yoga mat to stretch both my feet and arms. I felt so relax after doing that. There are times I just want to sleep on the mat than continue my exercise routine. I bet you felt that bliss too while stretching, don’t you?

Aside from stretching, yoga mat is really helpful when you are into yoga. I only wish that yoga mats are wider than their usual size. I’m not sure if yoga mat at this popular online store provides the same support and comfort like my old reliable yoga mat here.
