I recently discovered a great stretch that you can do for 5 – 10 minutes (or as long as you like) at any time of day. Personally, I found it a simple, quick way to step away from my desk, stretch out my back and leg muscles and re-set my body and mind for the rest of the working day.
Step 1: Find a chair or piece of furniture you can rest your legs on.
Step 2: Ensure your legs are at a 90° angle. You can add a cushion under your legs, back etc. Whatever is most comfortable for you.
Step 3: Take a deep breath in through your nose and release through your mouth.
Step 4: Relax your shoulders and arms.
Caution – I fell asleep trying this one evening as I found it so relaxing. No strain on any muscle, just resting.
Even my dog wanted to join in! I hope you find this a useful relaxation tool as well.
