A Simple Stretch Routine You Can Do Anywhere

We spend way too much time hunched over our cell phones and lap tops and we suffer for it — our necks, backs, hips, arms, wrists bear the brunt of bad posture.

It only takes a few moments out of our day to help us release the tension in our bodies and feel better by leaps and bounds.

At work, stretch once in the morning, once at lunch, and once before you leave.

Follow this simple routine with 10 reps for each stretch:

  • Rotate your neck clockwise and anti-clockwise.
  • Tuck your chin to your chest.
  • Roll your shoulders forward and backward.
  • Circle your feet clockwise and anti-clockwise.
  • Press your arms back with a straight back till you feel a good stretch in your chest and  shoulders.
  • Stretch out your arms, palms facing forward, and press your fingers backward with the other hand.
