Daily Stretches


Take a deep breath.

With all the responsibilities of daily life pressing on our shoulders, it can feel like we don't have the time to take a break from work and care for ourselves.

The goal of this 2021-2022 calendar is to provide nice, simple movements that only take 30 seconds at a time throughout the day. Through your participation in our surveys, the students from the Doctor of Physical Therapy Class of 2022 compiled dynamic and static stretches tailored to fit your needs. Each month features a new stretch to add to your wellness routine that encourages blood flow and reduces body aches. Video links are also provided with instruction and additional dynamic stretches.

We hope this resource helps encourage you in your health and wellness journey.
