Office Friendly Moves to Relax You

Shoulders
Sit at the edge of your seat, and pull your shoulders down and back. Raise your shoulders toward your ears until you feel slight tension in your neck and shoulders. Hold for three to five seconds. Then relax your shoulders to the starting position. Repeat two or three times. 

Neck 
Sit at the edge of your seat, and pull your shoulders down and back. Slowly drop your chin to your chest; hold for 15 seconds and return to start. Slowly roll your head backward until your chin is pointed toward the ceiling; hold for 15 seconds and return to start. Repeat two to four times. 

Upper Back 
Sit at the edge of your seat. Without locking your fingers, place your hands behind your head so that your thumbs face down and rest against the back of your neck. Looking straight ahead, squeeze your shoulder blades together. Hold for five to 10 seconds and release. Repeat three times.
