GENTLE STRETCHES TO TRY AT WORK OR HOME
Gentle stretching throughout the day can reduce fatigue and tension, increase blood circulation and improve flexibility. These stretches are particularly relevant if you have a desk based job or spend a lot of time watching TV or sitting at a computer in the evening. As always you should seek advice if you have pre-existing neck or back problems.
Try to get up from your desk at work or your chair at home to move around every hour or so. You can do simple stretches at or near your desk or armchair. Start off slowly and gently and work up.
Hold each position for the suggested time and number of repetitions.
Do not bounce, move into the stretch smoothly then hold the position.
Ease off if any of the stretches become uncomfortable.
