This week's blog is about stretching - of the body and of the mind.
If you exercise, you might know about the need to stretch out your muscles at the end of your workout. It's to help your muscles get back to their pre-exercise length, which should mean that you won't ache afterwards (a day or two later, perhaps). Stretching your body regularly throughout the day can ease any aches and pains too, and help your body feel better. It can help you breathe more easily too.
And what about your mind? Do you stretch it regularly? I don't mean by just doing the odd tricky puzzle or trying to get more than one correct answer on University Challenge... What about by questioning yourself more? If you challenge your opinions and values, you can gain clarity on all sorts of things, and be sure that you 'own' your ideas (and not regurgitate other people's).
How will you stretch your mind and body this week? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
