‘I have no time to exercise’, the usual one-liner from a workaholic. Dear workaholics it’s quite amazing how you can sit at your desk and work for hours together and not get bored or stressed out. However, at times it’s quite important to give yourself a break and stretch out those compressed butt muscles and bored shoulder blades. Finding some ‘me’ time for a workaholic can a bit difficult and that’s why we have compiled some sassy easy exercises you could do at your desk. Also, If you are the shy type you could probably tag along a coworker.
But wait, before we start with the set of exercises, we would like to give you a couple of reasons why stretching out in between work is necessary. Our body is crafted to move and not to sit in a place for 8-9 hours. During work hours do you yawn constantly, or have crazy work mood swings and feel all sluggish? These are some of the signs your body gives, to let you know it’s time to move around and kick start your metabolism. When your muscles are stationary for quite a while, it slows down your metabolism which in turn affects your productivity. Also, researchers have proved that quick workouts during your work-hour helps boost your confidence thereby making you look and feel positive.Stretching out every two hours keeps you more active than any caffeine shot or couple of cigarette drags.
Let’s get to the set of sassy exercises for a toned structure when at work.
