On-the-Job Stretches

Need to loosen up those tight muscles during the day? These moves from the Ergonomics Information Center at Michigan State University will help you keep the tension at bay:

Shoulder shrug. With your arms down, raise your shoulders toward your ears until you feel a slight tension in your neck. Hold for three to five seconds, then relax your shoulders down to their normal position. Repeat two to three times.

Neck rolls. Start by looking straight ahead. Slowly tilt your head to the left side and hold for 10 to 20 seconds. Then tilt to the right side and stretch for 10 to 20 seconds. Do two to three times on each side.

Arm/finger/shoulder stretch. Interlace your fingers, then straighten your arms out in front of you. Your palms should be facing away from you. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Do at least twice.
