4 Exercises You Can Do at Your Desk

Doing simple exercises at work can keep you more alert and relaxed. Just don’t plan on replacing the traditional form of exercising that you do throughout the week. Here are four desk exercises to punch up your workday:

Shoulder Shrugs: Simply bring your shoulders up and down. Repeat this five times. Add small circles. Circle to the front five times and to the back five times.

• Neck Rolls: Roll your neck around slowly in one direction. Repeat in the opposite direction.

• Leg Kicks: In the seated position, with your knees bent, take turns lifting each leg. Want to make it a little more difficult? Once the leg is up, make small circles with your foot, five in one direction and five in the other.

• Marching in Your Seat: It’s as easy as it sounds. Simply march in your seat. Thirty-second intervals are great.
