Taking a few minutes for yourself to stretch at work can help regain your focus, reinvigorate you, and help prevent injuries.
Here are 3 quick and low-key stretches you can do at your desk and then get back to work:
1) Trunk Rotation
While still seated, sit tall and straighten your back. Gently rotate your core and shoulders to one side as you grab the knee of the side you’re turning towards. Hold, then repeat with the opposite side.
2) Shoulder Stretch
Sit up straight with your hands on your thighs. Roll your shoulders forward and then up into a shrug and hold for a couple seconds. Release the shrug as you move your shoulders back down and squeeze your shoulder blades together.
3) Neck Rotations
Sit up straight and tilt your head back towards the ceiling. Rotate your head clockwise and drop your chin towards your chest at the halfway point. Continue until you’ve done a full rotation. Then reverse direction and repeat.
