Why Should I Stretch?

Mostly this is applied to people who are working repetitive jobs or maybe you just need to stretch for your comfort. I'm sure we can all use some stretching.
Because stretching can :
1. Increase circulation
2. Release tension and soreness
3. Increase muscle strength
4. Increase the amount of oxygen being delivered to your muscles.
5. Improve joint range of motion
6. Ease daily aches and pains

How often Should I Stretch?
1.Stretching several different muscle groups every half an hour to an hour will be very beneficial to your health and comfort.
2. Frequent shorter breaks are preferred to taking fewer longer breaks.
