If you work in an office, the chances are you’re spending a minimum of 8 hours sitting down – that’s 40 hours a week.
If you think about it your daily routine might sound something like this. You drive to work, sit down at your desk for at least 6 hours, drive home, and sit down to watch TV or read a book. This puts you at risk of strains, injuries and postural compromises. Next time you’re feeling a bit fidgety at the desk or you’re on your lunch break, try these stretching exercises. They’re simple, quick and might just give you a bit of an energy boost to get you through the rest of the day.
Another helpful thing to do is schedule a stretch in your computer diary so a reminder pops up, it only takes 10 minutes and while you’re at it pass it on and get everyone else in the office to do it, you will all benefit from it trust me 🙂
