Stay Comfortable at Your Standing Desk with Simple Stretches
Standing desks allow you to work standing instead of sitting. Getting up on your feet at work helps prevent a number of large and small problems with your health and productivity. You can get even more out of standing at height adjustable standing desks and minimize the damage and discomfort of sitting at work with a few basic exercises and stretches.
Stretching and keeping your legs, tendons, and joints loose and relaxed over the course of your workday will be just as beneficial as resting your eyes every few minutes is for your vision and for minimizing headaches. Although you should just spend more time standing by using a MultiTable standing desk, if you have to sit you can do these stretches and exercises surreptitiously while working to avoid drawing attention.
Your arms, shoulders, and neck are the easiest to stretch without making a spectacle of yourself whether you’re sitting or standing.
Your legs and back are easier to stretch standing than sitting, but you need one major stretch for each position.
You can add other stretches that are easy to do inconspicuously while seated or standing if you want to focus on more parts of your body. Your arms, shoulders, back, wrists, ankles, and chest can always use more stretching to overcome the pains that repetitive motion and a sedentary lifestyle create.
Height adjustable standing desks that allow you to work standing are great for your health. Complement the innate benefits of changing how you work by incorporating these simple, inconspicuous stretches into your daily routine and you will feel even healthier.
