COMPUTER BREAKS - By taking a rest every hour, ( or less if your
body says so!) you will actually accomplish more in a day. Do
the exercises below, and you will feel more energetic.
Press your forehead into your
palms, resisting forward motion
with your hands. Hold for 15 to
30 seconds. Clasp your hands
behind your head and press
your head back. Resist any
motion with your hands, holding
for 20 seconds. Turn your head
to one side, resisting any
motion with your hand. Switch
sides and hold for the same
amount of time on each side.
Then, tilt your head to one
side, resisting any movement
with your hand, again, holding
the position for 20 seconds on
Step away from your computer for
awhile. Shrug your shoulders up
to your ears, hold 10 seconds,
then release. Repeat 3 times.
Rotate each shoulder separately
forward and backward for 20-30
seconds each. Shake your hands
out. Shake your whole body. This
will boost sluggish circulation
and help avoid stiff muscles.
To avoid a stiff neck, slowly
drop your head fully forward,
then backward (only to point of
discomfort, each for 10 secs.).
Then tilt forward and rotate 4
times to each side.
