The Art of Deskercising: 8 More Deskercises for Your Workaholic Butt
Work-life-balance? What’s that?
If leaving work on ungodly hours, skipping meal times and bingeing on junk is your norm, then prepare to get sick or gain weight in no time. Sure, you’ll get better after a day or two of SL, but can you handle not fitting in your clothes anymore? Can you even afford a new (and two-sizes-bigger) wardrobe?
Work that workaholic butt not only for the client or company’s sake. Aside from these 8, here are more deskercises that will do wonders for your health.
8. Keyboard Stretch
Try to focus on the exercise move and not on the beautiful, topless man. It’ll be hard, but you can do it! When you’re typing most of the day, your hands and wrists need this stretch.
7. Book Press
Maybe if you have strong, toned arms, you’ll be able to compose more effective emails? Right? Well, it’s worth a try! Go get started with this workout.
6. Office Yoga
Who says you need to go out for some zen time? Take out your yoga mat, do some yoga poses and meditate when things at the office get overwhelming. You do you; don’t bother with what others might think.
5. Assisted Disco Reach
Stressed out? Pause for a dance-break, and get your happy hormones flowing with this move!
4. Waiting-for-the-Printer Push-Up
3. Curtsy Kick
Why don’t you propose a standing meeting to your team? Discuss your ideas while doing the Curtsy Kick, and everyone will surely be pleased. Why wouldn’t they be when you make them feel like royalty?
2. Seated Child’s Pose
When the back of your neck starts to hurt, but you didn’t binge on chicharon, consider it a call for a stretch. That means it’s time to take a break to do the Seated Child’s Pose. Be forewarned, though: Your officemates might wonder if you’re breaking down. Again, brush them off and do you.
