Desk Exercises

Simple exercises while working from home

Exercise while you work

You probably know that sitting hunched immobile over a desk for eight or more hours a day isn't doing your body any favours. Research suggests that even going to the gym won't offset the damage already done by sitting all day. 

Even if your workstation meets the display screen equipment regulations, you still need to move regularly to reduce your risk of discomfort and injury. If you have a sit-stand desk, try to remember to stand up regularly for 10-15 minutes at a time. Get up at least every hour for a toilet, water, or walking break. Use facilities further from your desk; briskly march down the corridor and back, or climb a few floors to get your heart rate up.

Cycle through a series of gentle desk exercises to keep your limbs, back and shoulders feeling relaxed and supple. Over the course of the day your muscles can tense up and become fatigued without you even knowing it, which can put strain on the musculoskeletal system and result in discomfort and longer term injuries, like RSI, carpal tunnel and back pain.
