Feel the Burn
My initial thought about stretching is effort and pain, but I realize the more I stretch in that direction, over time, the less effort and pain I am in.
Pretty good life lesson.
I'm a singer. When I first started performing solos in high school I would get terribly nervous. My voice and even my hands would shake. In college I asked my voice teacher if I would ever sing without feeling so excruciatingly nervous and her response was, "The more you do it the less nervous you'll feel."
Truer words were never spoken. The more you stretch the easier it is. In fact, it might actually start feeling good, in a refreshing "just woke up and have to stretch" kind of way.
We may not want to experience the discomfort of stretching, but we can have faith that it is good for us and we'll be better for it.

I used to do yoga regularly and it hurt at first, but it feels so good when I practice on a regular basis. I don't know why I ever stopped! I was definitely better for it!
