Head & Neck Tilt
Prevent your head from feeling heavy by doing a range of head and neck exercises. Start by facing your face forward, then slowly turn your head one way but keep your shoulders straight. Hold this stretch for at least 30 seconds, before relaxing your head to the starting position and repeating on the other side.
To achieve the same desired satisfaction but on your neck, face forward and begin to tilt your head so that you’re moving your ear closer to your shoulder. After holding this stretch for 30 seconds, you’ll begin to feel some tension, relax your head to its original position and repeat this stretch on the other side.
To relieve pain within your triceps, raise one arm behind your head and place it on your upper back. Use your other hand to reach for your elbow and pull it towards your head. Gently pull and hold for at least 30 seconds. Relax your arm and repeat the same on the opposite arm.
To help with back pain, keep your feet on the ground and face forward. Rest your arm on the back of your chair and bring your body slightly forward to the edge of the chair. Twist your upper body in the same direction as your arm resting on the back of the chair. Like with all stretches, it’s important to concentrate on your breathing when completing this stretch as it will help you lean into the stretch much easier.
Thoracic Spine Rotation
A more advanced seated exercise is a thoracic spine rotation. To achieve this pose you will need to be seated with your feet close together, bend from your waist towards your feet and place one hand in between your legs, touching the foot. Slowly rotate your body, opening your chest and allowing your other arm to reach for the ceiling. Maintain this position for 30 seconds before performing the same on the opposite side.
