Stretches for the office

Mindful Movement

If you spend a lot of your working day sitting or at a desk, it’s important to take some time to stretch.

Why?

  • Improves focus and productivity
  • Enhances posture and overall health
  • Reduces fatigue and repetitive motion injuries
  • Reduces stress and tension
  • Increases energy and flexibility
  • Creates space for deeper breathing, boosting memory
  • Improves circulation
  • Many more

To gain the above benefits, you only need to take a few minutes away from your work to come back feeling rejuvenated and ready to tackle your tasks.

Above is an example of a simple stretch you can do while still seated at your desk.

Fingers Up

  • Sit slightly forward on your chair, feet flat on the floor, legs at 90 degrees. Lengthen your spine. Relax your shoulders down your back.
  • Reach your right arm straight out to the front. Point your fingers up, pressing through the palm of your hand.
  • Reach your left arm straight out, placing it on palm side of your right hand,. Pressing only the fingers, not the entire hand. Remember to include the thumb.
  • Gently pull back with your left hand, and press out with your right hand. Keep an even , firm pressure.
  • Take 3-5 deep breaths here.
  • Release by simply lowering both hands and arms down.
  • Repeat on the other side.
