“Maybe you hit the gym for a couple of hard workouts AND made it to your sweat sessions at Ride Republic this week… and if so, that’s a job well done!
Here’s the bad news – if you spend most of your day sitting behind a desk, you may still be subject to the negative effects of gravity during long periods of inactivity. Sitting for long periods of time causes imbalances in the body; the head and neck drop forward and the hips and abdomen shorten and tighten.
What to do about it?
- Set a timer to stand up every 15 minutes
- Walk over to chat with a colleague instead of sending an email
- Pace the room while taking that conference call
Try incorporating these three habits into your daily work routine to prevent pain and loss of flexibility.”
