OK, we already know that sitting all day is bad for our health. But instead of the doom and gloom, focus on ways you can make a desk-job situation better, like incorporating this quick 5-minute stretch series into your daily routine.
These seven simple stretches are easy to do with limited space, and they won't make you look totally crazy when you bust them out in the office (swear). Still feel a little weird? Recruit another desk-confined coworker to do them with you. They'll not only relieve the physical pressure on your spine from sitting all day, but they'll also offer you a mental relief from the stress of a hectic day. Just hit play to get started.
