    How To Exercise In The Workplace

    These days, almost all the people, with the exception of kids, spend majority of their daytime in the office. More often than not, they are sitting in front of the computer, typing furiously at the keyboard. They seldom get time to move their body, with the exception of the movements undertaken for going to the restroom or for eating food. The result is a whole lot of pains - in the back, neck, arms, wrist, and so on. Contrary to what people believe, there is no need to go to the doctor for these problems. All you need to do is to undergo some stretching exercises in the office, while sitting at your arms or when taking a break outside.

    Given below are some tips to help you with workplace exercises.

    How to Exercise in the Workplace

    Neck and Face

    • Raise your eyebrows and open your eyes wide. At the same time, open your mouth and stick out the tongue. Remain in this position for 4-5 seconds and repeat 3-5 times.
    • Sit or stand straight. Slowly bend your head to the right, trying to touch the shoulder with your ear. Remain in this position for 5-10 seconds and repeat 3-5 times. Do the same on the left side.
    • Sit or stand straight. Slowly drop your head forward; continuing till the time you feel your neck stretching. Remain in this position for 5-10 seconds. Repeat the procedure, this time backward. Slowly open and close your mouth. Remain in this position for 5-10 seconds and repeat 3-5 times.
    • Sit or stand straight. Slowly turn your head to the right, continuing till the time you feel a slight stretch in your neck. Remain in this position for 5-10 seconds and repeat 3-5 times. Do the same on the left side.
