A recent survey showed that 8 out of 10 employees are sedentary, sitting at a desk for the majority of the day. And guess what? This contributes to a lack of work productivity. The less active you are, the more aches and pains you usually have - particularly in your neck and back. In addition, the less active you are, the less alert you become; this usually happens as the work day progresses. As the saying goes, if you don’t use it, you lose it. So use that body, get up (or in your chair) and stop being an office desk potato! Get some deskercise starting today and make your body strong with these super stretches:
1. Yawn, Reach and Side Bend
Reach high up to the ceiling and fully extend your arms as you yawn, then reach to the side. The yawn will help you to relax your body, alleviate the stress in your back and neck. The reach will help you to loosen up and just feel better. This is your first deskercise move for the day to ease your muscle tightness away.
