Let me guess… You’re reading this blog while sitting. In fact, you’ve probably been sitting all day, right? While we can’t change the fact that office jobs require a lot of sitting, we can help you stay comfortable while doing so.
Do you ever have one of those days where you do not realize how long you were sitting until you stand up and realize how tense your body is? While the importance of ergonomics is vital, there are also practices that will allow you to stretch straight from your chair.
Fitness Magazine shared different yoga poses that will leave you feeling refreshed and your muscles will stay less tense. Take less than five minutes out of your busy work hour and commit to trying these out for yourself.
First, the Seated Chest Lift. This will allow you to open your chest while stretching your back at the same time.
Now that your back feels less tense, let’s focus on your shoulders and next. The Neck Opener helps relieve tension from the way you were sitting while staring at your computer screen.
And last but not least, we can’t forget about the tension in your spine and lower back. Let’s try the Seated Twist.
The best thing about these stretches and poses is that it is all from your chair. Whether you are on a conference call or taking a minute to look away from your computer monitor, these are great times to stretch and relieve tension from your body.
