So, I’ve talked about how working from home can be hazardous to your health on so many levels, but did you know that working from your desk, regardless of where that desk is located can also be detrimental to your health? We all know to look away from the monitor every 20 minutes to give our eyes a break, and to walk around every hour (if you can squeeze in a 30-1 hour long exercise routine of walking or regular exercise, the benefits are insurmountable). But what do you do when your neck is stiff as a board, and your back hurts like you’ve been carrying bricks all day?
Workout your kinks with these deskercise routines to avoid pain in your back and neck!
-Raise your arms, and gently pull the elbow towards the opposite shoulder above the head. Count to 5 and repeat on the other side.
-Remaining seated, extend legs and reach towards those toes. Count to 20 and repeat 3 times.
-Hug your knee towards your chest.
