We always hear about the importance of stretching before and after workouts, or when we are rehabilitating an injury.
What about during the workday? Unfortunately, taking care of ourselves often gets overlooked when we are at work. Making good food choices, fitting in a workout, and getting enough sleep are difficult to balance with daily demands.
Stretching can be a great way to give relief to your body when stuck at your desk and wake you up during that mid-afternoon slump. I have put together 5 essential workday stretches that everyone can fit into their daily schedule. They only take a few minutes and you do not need any equipment.
By the way, let me know what you think of the Perfect Fit Now website. Each of my patients receives their own personalized program that includes video for reminders about how to properly perform each move. You can access the program both online and on a mobile app.
Instead of a coffee break today, try taking a few minutes to stretch. Your body will thank you!
