Exercises for active work breaks
Who's not familiar with it? We spend all day sitting in our office chair. After a while, we feel like we've been crammed into a cage. Things start to niggle us here and there. Our wellbeing and productivity suffers as a result.
What can help combat this? Regular exercise breaks. Give it a try with our office workout. The following exercises bring balance to the postures that we adopt during daily office life. You'll benefit most from these office exercises if you do them while standing. You can however perform some of the exercises while sitting down.
Carry out the 3-minute office workout at various points throughout the day, at least 3 times a day.
