We are all well aware being sedentary is bad for our health.
But to what extreme are the issues caused by working at our desk,
and how easy would it be to reverse?
Issues such as foggy brain, heart disease, over-productive pancreas, colon cancer and soft bones*
I have put together a short guide on stretches you can do at your desk to relieve tension and counter the effects of sitting at your desk for long periods of time.
In this guide you will find stretches for the four vital areas:
Avoid craning your neck forward toward a keyboard or tilting your head to cradle a phone while typing, which can strain the cervical vertebrae and lead to permanent imbalances.
Increase flexibility in the spine to avoid compressed discs, which can be torqued out of alignment. Also strengthening the abdominal muscles will improve your posture!
Keep those hip flexors loose and gluteus tight! When the hip flexors become short and tight and gluteus muscles become loose from sitting too much, your range of motion is limited and causes stabilization issues.
Try to elevate your work station to prevent slumping forward or overextending the muscles, which can cause neck and shoulder pain.
Stretching at your desk is just one of the many ways to improve your overall health and wellness.
In this guide I also include five other ways to get your body moving without having to go to a gym!
