Stretches you can do while sitting at your desk or work space:
1: Cervical stretch: sit on one hand to keep your shoulder down. With the other hand, gently pull your head to the side. You should feel a stretch on the side of your neck. Try changing the angle of your head (tilt forward and backward) to stretch different muscles.
2: Chest opener: squeeze your shoulder blades together and try to lower them to your back pockets. Keep your elbows to your side and hands out. You should feel your shoulder blade muscles strengthen, and a stretch in your chest (pectoralis muscles).
3: Piriformis stretch: bring one leg up and rest your foot on your knee. Lean your body over the foot that is up. You should feel a stretch on the back side of your hip of the leg that’s up.
4: Chin Tucks: sit up nice and straight. Bring your chin in toward your spine like you are giving yourself a double chin. Try not to move your torso or lean your head forward and back ward. You should feel a stretch on the muscles on the back side of your neck near your skull.
