Ahhh, flexibility, to have it or not to have it?
It is one of the number one things I hear all the time, that “I’m not flexible” so I can’t do yoga or stretch. This has always been a bit of a puzzle to me because it seems so clear that if your not flexible at all, that’s exactly why one would do it.. Right?? I think if one is not flexible and I think everyone has at least one area in there body that is not as “flexible” as other part, that its important to stretch. Personally I have some areas in my body that are very flexible and some that are much tighter. I am always trying to listen and honor wherever my body is. If one thing is tight, I give it some more time.
Bottom line for me, is there are different components to overall fitness, strength, cardio and flexibility to name the ones I think are important. They are different and all need some time. That is really the bottom line, you need some time, time to give your body what it needs. Its another thing I hear a lot, ‘I don’t have the time” (that’s right after I’m not flexible), and maybe you don’t have to much time. The thing is your body does not give a shit about your time frames and your not really wanting to stretch or do some strength training. It doesn’t matter what your age is or your level of fitness, there is something to help everyone. I believe with all my heart, that if I don’t take care of the one body I have, that it will not take care of me. . So in the end I say, “take some time for to get your flexible on”!!
