Are you someone who works in an office leaning into a computer screen all day? Or maybe your career has you traveling by car or plane regularly? You might even love to sit and binge-watch TV shows!
If you answered yes to any (or all) of the above, these stretches are for you!
When we sit, blood flow and circulation to our lower body is decreased. When we sit for extended periods of time day after day, it decreases even more.
This prolonged daily sitting also creates severe tightness in our hips, low back, quads, hamstrings, calves and feet.
But there IS help for you!
You may already know that standing every 20 minutes, if possible, is recommended by the medical community; taking a short walk is beneficial as well.
But taking a few minutes to stretch at your chair or plane seat is also beneficial to opening up tight muscle tissue and allowing blood flow to circulate!
So take a few minutes every hour or so to try out these stretches every day!
