10-Minute Morning Stretches for Energy Boost

Gently tilt your head from side to side, bringing your ear towards your shoulder to stretch the neck muscles. Hold each side for 15-20 seconds to release tension.

Neck Stretches

Roll your shoulders forward and backward in a circular motion. This helps loosen tight shoulder muscles and improves circulation.

Shoulder Rolls

Start on your hands and knees. Inhale as you arch your back and lift your head (cow pose), then exhale as you round your spine and tuck your head (cat pose). Repeat 5-10 times.

Cat-Cow Stretch

Stand with feet hip-width apart, bend forward at the hips, and let your upper body hang loose. Hold onto elbows and sway gently side to side to stretch the hamstrings and lower back.

Forward Fold

Sit tall in a chair, cross your right leg over your left knee, place your left hand on your right knee, and gently twist your torso to the right. Hold for 15-20 seconds, then switch sides.

Seated Torso Twist

Stand with feet hip-width apart, raise your left arm overhead, and gently lean to the right. Hold for 15-20 seconds, then switch sides. This stretch opens up the side body.

Side Stretch

Step your right foot forward into a lunge position, keeping your left knee on the ground. Press your hips forward slightly to stretch the hip flexors.

Hip Flexor Stretch

Stand facing a wall, place your hands against the wall at shoulder height, and step one foot back with the heel on the ground.

Calf Stretch

Rotate your wrists and ankles in clockwise and counterclockwise circles to increase blood flow and mobility in the joints.
