A big refreshing stretch

2019-11-17

Do you stretch when you get out of bed?

Remember as a kid, when you’d roll out of bed and have big, fulfilling, full-body stretch, and it felt great? I used to do that and I don’t anymore, and I don’t think anyone else does either. When do adults stop doing that? Is it because it’s undignified? Does it just get old?

Animals have the sense to have a big refreshing stretch when they’re done sleeping and want to feel awake. Maybe they know something that we’ve forgotten.
