Gently circle your shoulders
Ensure the movement is slow, gentle and comfortable.
1. Lift your shoulders up
2. Move them back and down
3. Move them forwards and up
This is such an easy exercise to do, try to do it as often as possible!
Sitting at a computer for long periods (especially if its in poor posture) results in the muscles between the neck and shoulders working hard for long periods. They can become tender and sore.
These muscles in particular respond to emotional stress.
Moving like this frequently helps the muscles to relax and improves circulation.
