Sitting in front of a computer all day for school or work can tighten & weaken muscles in the neck, shoulders, chest, hips, knees, and feet. These sitting stretches & exercises may help.
Starting in the neck area, chin tucks, upper trap stretch, and levator scapulae stretch are some of my favorite stretches and exercises for the neck and shoulders.
Next is a chest stretch for the pec muscles which can tighten and cause pain when we are hunched over all day.
Next, for the hips, knees, and feet are seated hip flexion, seated knee extension or LAQs, and seated heel and toe raises. These are great to keep the blood flowing in the lower legs.
Finally is a deep breathing exercise with arm movements. This is great to get your whole body moving and awake again.
