Feeling Sore After Sitting at the Office All Day?

One of the great tools that a lot of offices are implementing are standing desks. Yes. There are a lot of benefits of having a standing desk for your health and I will list a few, but what is even more important during the day is to stretch.

Benefits of a standing desk:
- Less obesity risk
- Reduced cancer risk
- Better posture

*If your just starting out using a standing desk we would recommend that you start slow at around 20 minutes a day to start. You can also use a mat which will help your support of the knees, hips, and ankles.

6- 8 of sitting in front of a computer can leave you with a lot of pain in your muscles. Having a standing desk just isn't enough to have those pains go away.Taking the time to stretch your shoulders, wrists, fingers, back, neck, and legs periodically throughout the day can cut down on long-term work-related muscle soreness and stiffness.

Here are some stretches you can do shown in the infographic by Quill.
