Stretching increases muscle flexibility. This can result in a decreased likelihood of injury, better muscle performance, and a feeling of well-being that follows for hours after you�ve finished.
Ideally, you should stretch several times each day. Stretching in the morning will get your body ready for the activities ahead. It also provides your mind with a focused, quiet activity that results, for many people, in a sense of peace and lessening of anxiety. In the evening, stretching will help work out the kinks of a day�s wear and tear. Stretching and relaxing muscles before going to bed will reduce soreness after a hard day and will have you waking up feeling great.

Headaches are a common cause of suffering, but all headaches are not created equal. The main challenge to affording relief from various forms of cephalgia, or head pain, is categorizing a headache by type, and then proceeding with the therapy most likely to help. The International Headache Society's landmark work on headache classification has allowed important advances in headache study, but is somewhat awkward to use in clinical practice. One practical approach is to first distinguish urgent headaches from others that may be less urgent, if no less distressing. Identifying special headaches i.e. those that may only benefit from specific therapy is the next step. Finally, if neither of these classifications fit, treatment of tension or migraine headache is in order. A headache is pain or discomfort in the head, scalp, or neck. Serious causes of headaches are extremely rare. Most people with headaches can feel much better by making lifestyle changes, learning ways to relax, and occasionally by taking medications.
