Don’t forget to stretch

When I ask older, active skiers for life tips, stretching is always one of them!

I’ve spent enough time having philosophical life chats with older skiers, by the fire, to know stretching is essential. I ask them for life tips because I want to be like them when I’m that old and they always say “remember to stretch.”

The cool thing about stretching is it takes little to no effort. I stretch my quads and hamstrings while laying in bed. Bend one leg and lean back! Another simple stretch involves rolling my head in clockwise/counterclockwise circles while listening to music.

Sometimes I get so used to the stress and the clenched unease, that I forget what it feels like to be fully relaxed. My shoulders and hips are always the tightest.

Thus, this is just a friendly reminder to drop those shoulders, take a deep breath and stretch.
