Computer-Friendly Stretches

Ever wonder why your body hurts when you’re sitting at your computer? Although many reasons could be the culprit—from the ergonomics of the chair to the length of time you’re sitting—one thing is for sure: Stretching will help relieve the pain. Here are some ideas:

1.Arms: Straighten an arm out in front of you at shoulder height. Make a fist and bend the arm down as though pouring something. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat five times.

2.Back. Put one foot on the opposite knee. Lean forward slowly and hold for 10 seconds. Alternate sides and do five sets total.

3.Legs. Stand with feet shoulder-width

4.Hands. Straighten an arm in front of you at shoulder height. With the other hand, bend the wrist back so your fingers point to the ceiling. Pull back on the fingers gently. Hold 10 seconds. Do five total reps, then repeat with the other hand.

5.Shoulders. Reach one arm up straight above your head and stretch your fingers. Move your head down to your chest and then back. Switch arms.
