Here are a few quick tips to help you stay focused and moving whilst at work;

  • Set a reminder to move, once every 30mins (sounds a lot, but your future self will thank you for it)

  • Roll your shoulders in a big backwards circles

  • Pull your shoulder blades back and down and pinch your shoulder blades together

  • Gently stretch the side of your neck

  • Lace your fingers behind your back and move your hands towards the ceiling to stretch your chest and shoulders

  • Stand up, go for a short walk and make a cup of tea or get some water

  • Sit up straight and twist in your chair to move your spine

  • Take calls standing up

And for those really annoying neck and back pains that just don’t go away, come see us at the clinic to sort it out once and for all!
