15-minute daily flexibility routine for working at home
For many transitioning to working from home, it means prolonged hours in a workspace that you’re not used to.
As healthy and active individuals we want to reduce our time spent undertaking sedentary activities and a daily flexibility & mobility routine is a great way to reduce our time spent sitting.
Daily stretching may help to improve:
- Joint range of motion
- Overall functional performance in everyday life
A stretching routine will help to break up long periods of time sitting in the one position which may help you avoid repetitive strain injuries.
Here are nine simple and effective daily flexibility exercises you could incorporate into your work from home routine. These are best completed as a continuous circuit, working for the nominated time or reps. Ensure to relax throughout all the movements, focusing on continuous and controlled breathing.
