For more information,visit http://www.ereleases.com.While commuting to work or to your part-time gig, if you're stopped by a traffic light, in the privacy of our own auto, we can stretch our neck, first back and forth side to side for some eight or so movements to stretch those muscles on each side of your head. After having stretched the side muscles of your neck, begin slowly at first to rotate your head. Perhaps at first in a clockwise direction. Slowly, move the head round and round several turns, then reverse and do several turns in the opposite direction. Now reverse and continue to rotate but now with more "reach." I enjoy hearing the little stretching sounds my tissues make as I am reminding them to remain limber and not to freeze into the inactivity and inelasticity we associate with "old age."
