So what we know is that sitting for hours at a desk is bad for you. However, you have to get that assignment finished, the presentation needs to be in by 5pm and you haven’t started it yet. The phone rings and you bend your neck to hold the phone between your ear and your shoulder as you scramble to find the relevant piece of paper on your desk the caller is questioning your about. Sitting for long periods of time, your Joints stiffen all the way down through the body from the top of the neck through the spine to the pelvis. Legs don’t move and the hips, knees and ankles stiffen up. Blood pools in the feet and flows badly through the pressure points (numb bum).
So here are some helpful tips so you can get through the day without stiffening too much.
