Is your lower back sore? Does the area between your shoulder blades feel tight?
If so, you may have been sitting too long at your desk. And when that occurs for nearly eight hours a day, five days a week, the toll on your body, especially your flexibility, is tremendous.
To combat these stresses, Alan Hedge, Ph.D., a professor of ergonomics at Cornell University, advises his clients to "employ the 20 - 20 rule."
"Every 20 minutes, stand for 20 seconds and stretch or shake things out. “
"Just 20 seconds away from your computer screen reduces fatigue and increases blood circulation,” says Hedge.
And every 2 hours, try to perform the series of postural correction moves and rejuvenating stretches that will make tight muscles feel great and improve your oxygen efficiency (please copy & paste the link below into your browser).
