As we all know, mornings are the time when the joints of the body are most stiff as a result of not being warm. But this should not preclude you from striving to stretch out those stiff joints in the morning before getting on with your day. Here's the key: warm up those stiff joints first before stretching. How? Take a nice warm shower or bath after rising out of bed in the morning. This will allow more pliability of the joints prior to stretching them.
