Day 21: Neck resistance

Today's quick office exercise is designed to increase the strength of your neck muscles. According to Livestrong.com, stretches that utilize resistance provide stress relief, mobility, and range-of-motion. Maintaining good flexibility is important for overall well-being and posture, as well as to relieve tension and tightness in the neck, head and between the shoulder blades.
 
Step 1: Sitting upright in your chair, place your hands palm down on your forehead with your fingertips touching in the center of your forehead.
Step 2: Lean back so you are looking up in the air.
Step 3: Over the course of about 10 seconds, bend your head forward until your chin is on your chest, all the while pushing backward with your hands.
Step 4: Bring your neck back to a neutral position and take a few breaths.
 
Repeat five to 10 times.
