? Welcome to Day 45 of the Challenger’s Journey!

Each day for 8 weeks we’re going to help you think, eat, move, or sleep better.

  • ? Each week we will be focusing on 1 of the 4 pillars at a time.
  • ? Each day we will challenge you to take action with a daily mission that you need to complete.

Here’s a quick snapshot of what Week 7 looks like:


Today’s ? Mission:

This is what you need to do in order to successfully complete today’s challenge mission.

More ? Info:

Building on yesterday’s challenge of finding your exercise minimum, we’d like to keep this mission super short and do-able too.

Most of us live in a very sedentary world that involves a lot of sitting.

Sitting at the table, sitting in the car, sitting at work, sitting on the couch, and sitting almost every chance that we get when out and about.

If this sounds like you, then you most likely have tight and weak hip flexors that may limit your mobility, give you poor posture, or even cause you various amounts of pain and discomfort.

Ideally, we should address our daily lifestyles so that we are sitting less and moving more – which is what we did previously in Week 3 of this challenge.

However, there are also a number of simple exercises that we can do on a frequent or even daily basis to loosen up our hips, strength our hip flexors, and undo some of the damage of sitting.

Healthline have a great list of exercises to try: 7 Stretches to Relieve Tight Hips.

Our personal favourites from their list are:

#2 The Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch (or Couch Stretch)

#3 Pigeon Pose

Be sure to check out the rest of their article for some other stretches worth doing.

That’s it. Easy peasy, hip stretches are easy!
