We were built to move! And it’s been proven that spending too much time sitting increases your risk of having a heart attack, stroke, and metabolic syndrome. Plus, the more you sit, the more likely you are to have an achy back and muscle pain.
If you have low or mid back tension, or if your neck and shoulders feel tight throughout the day, chances are you’re slouching too much! You can release the discomfort from sitting all day in just 5 mins with today’s chair stretch routine.
The key is to become consistent with these types of stretches. They will not only make you feel revitalized by increasing circulation, but stretching also can ease the discomfort from sitting all day long.
As a bonus, it’s a great wake-me-up to refresh your mind and body before you head out the door!
