Desk stretches

Some simple stretches at your desk each day can help offset the ill effects of all those sedentary hours you log on at work.

Get started with these. Hold each stretch for 15 to 30 seconds.

Neck Stretch
Sit tall and upright.
Grasp the bottom of the chair with your hand to keep the
shoulder depressed.
Bring your opposite hand overhead and gently provide pressure on your head as you bring your ear toward your opposite shoulder. Hold, then repeat on the other side.

Overhead Triceps Stretch
Lift one arm overhead.
Bend the elbow fully, letting the hand drop toward the mid-back with your palm facing your back.
Place your opposite hand on your elbow and apply pressure to increase the stretch. Hold, then repeat on the other side.
