Relaxing Full Body Stretching Routine for Stress & Anxiety Relief, Seated

Sponsored Post Vitamin D2 Canada Persia
Simple stretches like these can often help provide relief from stress & anxiety because gentle stretching can help the body relax. These seated stretches are performed in real time so it's easy to follow along. More full body stretches: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJAHGpe0AVU

This relaxing stretching routine starts with a gentle warm up. Knee extensions or long arc quads (LAQ), hip flexion, and upper arm jumping jacks and horizontal Ts will help get your muscles warm and ready to stretch.

To start off with the neck area where we hold a lot of our stress, upper trapezius and levator scapulae stretches are great to help relax those muscles.

Scapular squeezes, seated trunk rotation, and quadratus lumborum (QL) stretches will help work the upper, middle, and low back.

Moving down to the hips and legs, a seated knee to chest, seated hamstring stretch, and an active calf stretch will help relax the lower body.
