Heat your stiffness away.

Use a heating pad in your bed or take a warm shower or bath first thing in the morning. Heat expands blood vessels to improve circulation and relieve pain and stiffness.

Move to a new breakfast routine this week.

Whole foods help reduce inflammation, which makes movement easier. Start your day right with hard-boiled eggs, hot millet cereal, or a smoothie with fruits and vegetables.

Start stretching daily.

Stretching loosens joints and improves range of motion. Before you exercise, try a stretch that mirrors the activity's movements. This helps with circulation and warms up the muscles.
