Do you ever wake up with back pain, a stiff neck, or a Charlie horse? That's because your muscles stiffen up while you sleep due to inactivity. To ensure a pain-free day, loosen up in the morning with these stretches from iVillage Health: 15 Stretches to Start Your Day Off Right

How often do you stretch?

How often do I stretch?  Ummmm - hardly ever.  Do I feel stiff in the morning?  You betcha!  ;)  I guess I'd better check out that link, huh?    Thanks, Karla!

I have never tried to stretch but it does make sense. I may do a few minutes stretching before work to see if it makes a difference.

Hi, Wendy -

Sorry to hear about the stiffness.  If I ever win the lottery, I'm going to buy a new mattress, get a hot tub, and hire a massage therapist.  'Til then, I think I'll try the stretching too.
