- stand up straight with your hands on your hips or in the small of your back. Gently push your hips forward as far as you can hold for a few seconds. Repeat 10-12 times
- stand tall. Rise up and down on your toes. Repeat 10-12 times
- stand tall. Squeeze your shoulder blades together. Hold for 2–3 seconds. Repeat 10-12 times
- chin tucks. Look straight ahead in a seated or standing position. Tuck your chin in (as if to mimic giving yourself a double chin). Hold for 2–3 seconds and repeat 10–12 times. Try to avoid looking down or nodding your head
- walk! One of the best exercises to do to break up the long period of sitting is to walk. It doesn’t need to be brisk, but walking allows gentle rotation and stretch around the spine. Naturally, the more brisk you walk, the more the spine stretches and rotates.
