Welcome to the Daily Distance a new daily series from the creators of #WeGotGoals. In these short episodes, we’re bringing you one daily goal you can set for yourself during this chaotic time- one actionable thing you can do to move your body, connect with a friend, prioritize your mental health, get some work done, and practice a little bit of self-care.
In this podcast episode, Kristen hears from Tim Cohen, co-founder of Ethos Training Systems in Chicago. He’s got a ton of movement-related certifications under his belt, and he’s a Kinstretch black belt—so it’s no wonder he recommends starting your day with some gentle stretching to warm up your limbs. In fact, Tim shares that humans are the only animals that don’t automatically stretch in the mornings.
