I myself work at a desk very frequently. So, YES, I feel you. I know it can be extremely easy to zone out, hunched over your screen, with little to no movement for hours on end. By creating habits to get up and move throughout the day, practice good posture, hydrate, and take deep breath's, you can help combat some of that achy tightness and fatigue that is the result of a desk job. Check out these 5 stretches that you can do throughout the day!

END STORY- MOVE YOUR BODY

Our bodies were designed for movement (not desk sitting). Although, we may not be able to escape the desk, we can do things to work in favor of our bodies.
