If You Want To Relieve Stress And Muscle Soreness At Work, You Need These Simple Stretches

In today’s world, people use electronics on a daily basis. People are extending their necks in a forward and downward position. As a result, the increased pressure on these particular joints ultimately leads to tightness, pain, and muscular tension. On the bright side, you can alleviate these aches and pains by completing the exercises in this short video from FitnessBlender.

Negative effects of sitting too long

1. Organ Damage

Backaches can be the least of your problems. Sitting for long periods of time will cause muscles to burn less fat and your blood begins to flow slowly, allowing for fatty acids to clog your pores. In addition, it has been linked to high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and an elevation in cholesterol.

2. Muscle Degeneration

Sitting can affect the mobility of your hips and the strength of your glutes. Your glutes can weaken with lack of use affecting your stability and power when walking and jumping.

3. Weight Gain

Obese people typically sit for two and a half more hours per day than thin people.

Things to keep in mind

You don’t want to stretch yourself to the point where you become uncomfortable. Do not push yourself past your limit. Performing these exercises every day will increase blood flow throughout your body as well as giving your mind a nice little recharge when you start getting scatter-brained. This will take you less than 5 minutes to complete, no excuses!
