Exercise Three: Crossing the Road
You don’t have to leave your desk for this exercise, either. Sit at the edge of your office chair and adopt an upright seating position. If the code of conduct at work permits it, you may prefer to stand up. Now, remember what your parents told you when you went to primary school: before crossing the road, remember to look left and right. Of course, you probably won’t be crossing the road on your office chair. Nevertheless, looking left and right towards your shoulders helps to relieve tension from your neck and upper back. Before you start this exercise, remember that all movements of the head should be performed slowly and carefully. With that in mind, we’re ready to start the exercise. Turn your head 90 degrees to the right and look over your right shoulder. Then turn your head back to the starting position. Now perform the same movement on your left side. Repeat this exercise up to five times on both sides.
