A practical guide to show you small, simple, varied and doable ways to move more so that your body is less stiff, stronger, more energized and feels good. It focuses on movements you can easily do throughout the day – whether in the office or at home.
Most of us sit still for the majority of the day at our desks, not to mention hours binge watching Netflix. No self-respecting cat gets up without stretching, but humans have forgotten this need for regular movement. Back ache, migraines, RSI and even digestion issues can be aggravated by sitting still for too long. Move More At Your Desk shows you how to improve your sitting posture, strengthen, stretch and improve flexibility, to counter the issues caused by too little movement.
Illustrated throughout, the book is divided into 5 sections presenting movement snacks you can choose throughout your day: Neck and shoulders * Moving your spine * Legs and hips * Hands and wrists * Breathing. Each section provides exercises, tips and tricks targeting areas that are badly affected by stiffness and pain.
Build new habits, learn how to move just a bit more each day, and within four weeks aches and pains will be gone, you will feel more energized, positive and alive at work. Move More At Your Deskwill give you everything you need to improve your overall health, posture and core strength.
