5 Easy mobility stretches you can do at your desk

Working for long periods sat a desk is something that is inevitable for most of us. However prolonged periods sat down can have a negative impact on overall posture and can also cause strain on the lower back and hips in addition to tension in neck and shoulders.

There are some things you can do to minimise impact, for example getting up for frequent walks or have a quick stretch around the space, sitting with the correct posture or going for a short walk during lunch.

Our spaces do offer Ergonomic chairs which are designed to minimize the impact of back strain and provide optimal posture support.

However, working for prolonged periods still causes muscle tension and aches, which is why it is important to stretch and release some of that tension: Here are 5 easy stretches that you can do while at your desk.

Below is also an illustration of some quick mobility stretches we recommend that only take 10 minutes!
