At the end of most workdays, I feel like a lump of silly putty; a hunched over, tightly wound ball of clay with a head poking out the top. I’m sure I’m not the only one: Most of us spend the day sitting, working on computers or staring ahead at the front of classrooms, letting our bodies sink low in our chairs and our heads stick out in front of us. No wonder our bodies feel awful by the end of it. While there are many things we can do to combat the effects of sitting constantly, like working at standing desks and having “walk and talk” meetings, there’s something simple and easy that you can do right now to make yourself feel instantly better: a bit of good old-fashioned stretching. Stretching—not only after work outs, but throughout the day and before and after work—is a great way to neutralize all of that time you spend slouching at your desk, and it can go a long way toward easing the aches and pains that keep you awake at night.
