I walk in place while setting me and another co worker who works shift before me are getting a cycle for under the dest we can share. I also do stair steps on the bottom step of stairs by office so I can hear phone.

I am tied to my desk most of the day with both hands and 1 foot engaged (medical transcription) but I do try at least hourly to get up and do some stretches at least to keep from getting so stiff

I spend a lot of time on the phone doing interviews. I keep two pink weights in my cube and during the initial part of the interview, when I am explaining the process and don't have to take notes yet, I do arm curls and lifts. I get about 30 minutes of arm work in every work day that I have calls, People looked at me funny when I started, but now there are small weights in several cubicles in my office. It hasn't made a huge difference, but blouses are not a tight in the arm area and my back doesn't bulge quite as much around my bra. Baby steps.

I do torso twists and arm stretches regularly while seated at my desk. I have a herniated disk, so keeping my back loose and happy is essential. I don't care how I look--the relief is worth any stares I may get. But everyone's pretty used to the sight of me twisting and stretching by now!

Listen, are you breathing just a little and calling it a life?

I stretch my back and shoulders, my arms pretty regularly if i'm seated for a long time. I think part of it is having a long torso. My back just gets cramped if I'm in one position for a while. I have to get up and do something else (make a cup of tea, use the washroom) every hour or so or my back gets sore.

I'm also fortunate enough not to work at a desk, but I do stretch after every massage.

No. I don't work at a desk. I work in an operating room. I'd feel silly doing them, and really don't know where I'd find the time.

Recently I had to go to pysio for a sore shoulder and he gave me neck stretches to do sitting or standing so I find I do them at my desk because they must be done every hr.

I was wondering if anyone has added motion into their day but using the suggestions for work desk stretches or exercises here on SparkPeople? Do you try some on a regular bases, if not what's stopping you?
