Home Working Desk Stretches

Dec 8, 2020

With so many people working from home and ending up sitting at your screen for hours on end, it is common to be feeling a bit stiff and uncomfortable. Many people are also finding their daily step count/ activity levels have reduced, due to their commute being cut down to a few steps from your bedroom to the desk rather than a walk to work or the train etc. Working from home stretches

Here are our top tips to help you keep active and prevent you getting too stiff and uncomfortable whilst you work:

  1. You might be missing your regular walking commute to work, why not still include this even when working from home. Go for a 10/15 min walk before you start work and then again when you finish work. 
  2. Set a regular timer to stand up and move.
  3. Think about standing up for any telephone calls.
  4. Make sure you have a supportive chair and appropriate desk set up.
  5. Try some regular seated stretches throughout the day.
