2013 Physiotherapy Tips for Efficient Rest, Breaks and Exercise
Take short frequent breaks away from your desk before you feel that you need them! Try to do the opposite movements than you have been doing during your break. So if you were hunched forward – stretch a few times backwards with your arms and shoulders or roll the shoulders with backward circles at least 10 times. Stretches should be regularly throughout the day, at least once an hour.
Have a 15-minute brisk walk during your lunch hour or after work
When talking on the telephone, get up from the sitting position and stretch. DO NOT PINCH THE TELEPHONE BETWEEN THE EAR AND SHOULDER. POSSIBLY USE A HEADSET IF YOU USE THE TELEPHONE A LOT.
