Sitting for long hours in the office? Some exercise you can do at your desk

Do you sit for long hours in the office?  Long days at the office can leave you feeling stiff and tired. Hours spent seated at a desk and computer can hurt your eyes and posture. 

Try doing some simple exercises while sitting at your desk, and you’ll keep your energy levels up and those aches and pains at bay. 

1. Keeping your shoulders down and back, stretch out your arms as wide as you can. You should feel a pull across your chest. This is great for posture, as we tend to hunch over the computer when we get engrossed in our work.

2. Keeping your heel on the floor, lift the toes on your right foot as high as you can and hold for a few seconds. Repeat ten times and then do the same with your left foot.
3. Stretch one arm out in front of you, hand outstretched as if to stop someone. With your other hand, gently pull your fingers back to stretch your wrist and forearm. Repeat with the other side.

4. Imagine sprinting 100 meters by tapping your feet lightly on the floor as fast as you can. Try for 30 seconds, take a short rest and repeat. 

5. Extend and lift your right leg until it’s level with your hip (pointing straight out). Hold this position for as long as you can. Relax and then do the same with your other leg. Try for three times with each leg.

6. With your chest out and tummy in, clench your abdominal muscles and hold for as long as you can. Repeat five times.

Of course, for the legs, you can also pull on a pair of support hosiery to give your legs the extra support it needs.  Support hosiery also helps improve blood circulation in the legs and also prevent/slow down formation of varicose veins, DVT syndrome, etc. 

It’s important that you find ways to incorporate exercise into your daily routine to keep you feeling fresh and invigorated.
