Thanksgiving is a much-beloved holiday in our home. My guy likes to cook massive amounts for food for just the three of us, and his stuffing is legendary. This year, he is on standby, so the cooking falls to me. I’m up for the challenge, especially since I’m armed with a few good stretches to relieve back tension from standing at the stove. This standing forward bend will benefit you on many levels:

  • elongates spinal muscles
  • decompresses neck
  • stretches hamstrings
  • improves circulation
  • energizes

Take a minute for this stretch, and your body will also be thankful this holiday.
