Day 68: Neck Pain Relief

Exercises for the neck are extremely important, especially if you’re experiencing neck pain. If done correctly and on a regular basis, you’ll notice greater range of motion and less stiffness with movement. When you’re sitting for long periods of time, this neck-stretching exercise is particularly helpful if you do it every twenty to thirty minutes.
 
Step 1: Place your finger on the front of your chin. 
 
Step 2: Draw your chin away from your finger as you pull your chin in. This is basically a nodding movement with your head, as if saying “yes,” without dropping your head or looking down. You should feel a gentle pull in the back of your neck.
 
Step 3: Hold for two seconds when your chin is in. 
 
Step 4: Do two to three slow repetitions.
