Do you stretch after waking up?

I don't stretch right away when I get out of bed. I usuall stretch when I have a certain "feeling" in my back. It's not really a pain, more like a little twinge to let me know I need to stretch. Funny, right after I started answering your post, I actually stretched. I guess because I am responding here, I am more aware of actually doing it.

i stopped stretching ever since that one time a few weeks ago, when i stretched right after waking up and sprained my back.. somewhere near my left shoulder blade and it ached for days after. So, i try not to. Mom told me that it happened because i haven't been exercising. Maybe that's it. But no more stretching for me.. but i could feel my baby stretching all the time. Makes me wanna pee.. hahahaha!!

Sometimes, when I had a good sleep, my body just automatically stretches, I guess that's from habit. It really feels good and kind'a tunes your body to be prepared for anything that you might do for the day. Then there are times when I simply forget to stretch, when I just woke up and have to hurry to go somewhere and other things that need urgent attention. I often forget to take stretches at those times. Then, I also do stretches when on bus rides, some twists and arm stretches and if I'm at the middle of the bus or anywhere with space, I'd stretch my legs a bit too. bus rides often get long..
