Stretch of the day: You will need a pull-up bar or something similar. Hanging for spine decompression. Stand on a stool or something that keeps the bar just lower than fully overhead. Start with hands shoulder width apart, slowly bend your knees and transfer weight from your feet to you hands to hang as is comfortable. This can be a strain on your shoulders so if it is painful or you are new to this, stop before you have full weight in your hands. This is a deep stretch without fully hanging. Practice this regularly and slowly increase the weight in your hands.
