What are the stretches I can do from my desk?
- Sit with your back supported.
- Keeping your head facing forward, slowly tilt your ear towards your shoulder.
- Stop when you feel a gentle stretch in your neck, just below your ear. Hold for 20 seconds and then slowly move to the other side.’
- Sit on the edge of your desk chair.
- Turn your body one direction, and grab onto the back of the chair until you feel a stretch in your upper back.
- Hold for 20-30 seconds, and then turn the opposite direction.
- Whilst sitting in your chair, bend forward and wrap your arms around the back of your legs.
- Gently pull your body towards your legs until you feel a stretch in your lower back.
