Longing to rid those aches and pains at your workplace? Look no further! We have some tips to help you help yourself.
It is the hours spent in the office without exercising any part of your body that cause those aches at the workplace.
Try these easy steps to eliminate troublesome body stiffness.
Stand from a sitting position without using your hands. This helps you to change your position instead of remaining in one place.
Instead of sitting, try substituting your chair with an exercise gadget – say a foot massager. Or, hold a meeting while at a treadmill. You will also lose weight in the process!
For relief to your neck, keep bringing up your shoulders as if you are shrugging. This releases a lot of physical tension.
To relax your arms and fingers, make circular motions with your arms and clench and unclench your fingers. You could also try pointing your fingers towards your feet, towards your torso or even pointing them upwards.
As you exhale turn towards the right, seizing the back of your chair with your right hand. Holding the arm of the chair with your left hand, try and turn as far as possible. Return to the normal position with ease and repeat this towards the left side.
To release your tight leg muscles, holding the chair seat firmly, stretch your legs straight out, equidistant from the floor and wriggle your toes.
By giving yourself a bear hug, your shoulder blades will get relief.
Grab the elbow of one hand while it is outstretched and pull it towards you to get relief in your upper back.
Another exercise to relieve your back and neck is to bend forwards while sitting, with your chest touching your knees. Keep your feet together. Put your hands behind your legs and grab your wrists.
Look up, with your fingers clasped behind your head. This is excellent to relieve your neck and upper body.
Nothing substitutes a walk instead of an email to a colleague you could speak to, across the office or a floor above or below you.
