Stretches For Sitting


 

We know that “Sitting disease” can lead to metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Also based on numerous scientific findings sitting disease leads to an increased risk of pelvic floor dysfunction, serious back injuries and even linked to cancer and other serious illnesses.

 

 

Here are Steph Prem's 5 tips to do to improve your health if you have a desk job!

 

1. Even when you’re not exercising, you should make sure you sit at your desk the right way. Check your desk chair and your desk is at the proper height to reduce strain on your neck and back.


2. Chest openers’ at your desk – Pull your key board close to your body, sit up tall and stretch your shoulders back as if you were trying to grab a pencil between your shoulder blades and try typing here for a while to re set your posture.


3. Set an alarm on your phone to go off every hour during the work day and remind you to take a walk around the office, or step outside for some fresh air.


4.Always take the stairs not the elevator if it’s an option.


5.Drink bottle(s) – Have x2 drink bottles on your desk and try to get through 1L before lunch and 1L after lunch. Reach across your body to grab the left and right one and try to put them further away from you each time you have a sip to keep up the circulation and hydration! (kill two birds with one stone!)
