10 Quick Yoga Stretches for People Who Sit All Day!

Are you a busy working women who sits at a desk all day? Have you been noticing more frequent neck and back pain as you stare at your computer screen all damn day? Believe me, I feel ya on this girl

I sit at my computer quite a bit! Especially lately with the recent growth in my business and I’ve been noticing some neck and back pains that weren’t there before. I have to constantly remind myself to keep good posture and roll my shoulders back.

Because we both know how easy it is to cuddle up on the couch with the laptop or hunch over at the kitchen table. Next thing you know it’s two hours later and you are completely stiff from being stuck in that position!

I wanted to share these yoga stretches with you that have helped me and my clients tremendously!

I get it – you’re busy and don’t have time to stretch or take an entire yoga class all the time. But this yoga sequence only takes 5 minutes! I KNOW you have 5 minutes in your day to give this a try!

Sitting for extended periods of time is not good for our bodies. We were not designed that way! So to go along with these stretches, here are 3 other tips you can do that will help with this pain!

  1. If you can, make sure your screen is eye level. Get a cheap monitor, keyboard, and mouse for your laptop is possible. This can help you avoid the hunch while you try to look at that tiny screen!
  2. Take frequent breaks and walk around or get some type of movement in your body. You will actually be more productive this way too – it’s a win-win! I would suggest getting up every 45-60 minutes, set an alarm on your phone. Just a quick trip to the restroom or water fountain is great for keeping you moving.
  3. Once you have your monitor and key board set up properly, try to avoid being on your phone. Instead of being hunched over looking at your phone, do everything you can from your computer.

If you are like me and most of the world, you want results fast. But, good things come to those who are CONSISTENT! Just like anything else, stretching is not a quick fix.

If you didn't already know, stretching also makes our tummies happy! Daily stretching is a great way to reduce bloating and get things moving.
