We can instantly make ourselves feel better
If your work keeps you in a fixed position for a long time
A two minutes stretch brake every hour to reverse your fixed posture provides an instant relief.
If your posture or activities are a problem
Make it a habit to stretch those muscles regularly.
If you have back pain from sitting at a desk all day
Stretches that reverse that posture could help.
- Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and knees bent slightly.
- Lean forward, placing your hands just above your knees.
- Round your back so that your chest is closed and your shoulders are curved forward.
- Then arch your back so that your chest opens and your shoulders roll back.
Repeat several times.
