Turn your head to your left then count….

This is what the instructor always says in the video played on Youtube. It's just one of the best examples of stretching exercises that you may try when at work to alleviate the pain of your sedentary lifestyle. 

In a State map presented by CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) in January of 2020, 17.7.-47.7% of adults in the US have been physically inactive. 

The numbers can tell that more people have been less active for the past years before the global pandemic of 2020. However, worse became worse when the pandemic struck and restrictions in movements were imposed during lockdowns. Even until now that many countries are lessening their lockdowns and governments have been lenient in terms of imposing restrictions in movements outside homes, a lot of people are still less active this 2021 because of the new work mode in some countries where there are still individuals that need to work from home while there should only be a skeletal workforce in some offices. 

This might worsen cases of people who suffer from sedentary pain because of lesser physical activeness. Nevertheless, there is a brand that could help office workers in that case and that is Flexispot-the best provider of a standing desk, sit-stand desk, ergonomic chairs, and desk organizers. With Flexispot being part of the array of products in your office, you can assure that you are protected against biomechanical pain.

Desk and Chair Exercises to Try
