Few Exercises One Can Do At Office

Few Exercises One Can Do At Office

The alarm clock buzzes and one has to get going. No snoozing and looking back at the inviting bed in the morning. It is a week-day, a lot should be lined up, countless number of files on the desktop, the telephone calls in a loop, the mailbox flooded with the e-emails. Such is the plight of a mechanised and sedentary lifestyle one lives in. The studies have shown that an average adult sits for 10-12 hours a day and mostly during working hours. Even if you are exercising otherwise but sitting continuously for hours at office, then it is equal to ‘no exercising’ because your body is absorbing calories with double the speed. Studies have shown that ‘prolonged siting can lead to increased risk of obesity, diabetes and heart-diseases’.

At our business centres you can find solace in exercising while working as you are already present in a calm and stress- free environment. Mentioned below are the various exercises that can be easily done at your desks:

Neck Flex
You could just take your right ear towards right shoulder, hold on for a few seconds and repeat for the left side. This will help all your muscles relax and will increase the blood flow in the brain which can help you regain strength to work healthier.

Feet Stretch
The gentle circular movements of the feet could really help in rejuvenating during office hours. Therefore, happiness lies right under your desk, just stretch the feet as a stress reliever. This surely upturns the blood flow in the body and one regains endurance.

It is good way to relieve your neck and shoulders. Gentle circular movements keep away all the cervical problems. Sitting at the computers all day makes the neck area, shoulder and back stiff, therefore this is a healthy way to maintain good health and helps increase concentration at work.

At first this could sound a bit lame, that how can you expect somebody to walk while one is tied at a desk job! But better it is to walk around the lobby area if you are at a phone call. Also, walk to the cafeteria to fetch your cup of coffee. It stimulates your senses and keeps you going.

Twist the Wrist
Yes, it is as easy as it sounds.  First clockwise and then anti-clockwise, twist your wrists for 10 seconds each and repeat 3-4 times this would help relaxing your fingers and forearms.  Using your hands tirelessly at laptops should come easier to you when you practice this healthy tip at your desk.

Making these artless and trifling activities at the workplace can really become immense stress-busters and benefit you advance fortitude. This is the time to break a monotonous prolonged sitting routine and get groovy at work!
